About me

Has depression, anxiety, trauma or stress become too hard to cope with alone? Sometimes we need help navigating life's difficulties. Trauma, abuse, stress, and bad relationships may have changed the way you live and relate to everyone around you. There can be healing. Counseling is a collaborative relationship where trust is built, and healing is sought. I focus on building a trusting relationship with my clients.

I use research proven EMDR to help clients with trauma, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, negative self beliefs, etc. I also utilized CBT, Solution focused, EMDR and relational cultural. I can teach you about how trauma, depression, and/or anxiety affect the brain. I enjoy personalizing treatment by using creative techniques based on clients' interests.

One of the most important things to successful counseling is the relationship between counselor and client. Together, we will explore solutions for the difficult issues and problems you may be facing. I want my clients to be free to express their thoughts, feelings, stories, fears, and traumas without judgement. PLEASE MESSAGE ME TO SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS AS I DON'T BOOK THEM THROUGH THE LIVE SCHEDULING PAST ONE WEEK! I AM GENERALLY AVAILABLE IN THE DAY TIME AND ON WEEKENDS.

cristy has helped me come such a long way with my anxiety and depression. she helped me through exercises that she’s taught me. i trust her with anything i tell her and she makes it feel like a great safe environment/ relationship with her clients. she will help you reach any goals you have mentioned and will mention something you brought up in the last sessions to make sure you are okay/ met your goals yet. she’s super helpful and i’m beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her though better help.
