My quality of life has greatly improved after talking to Kristina. She offers great tools, understanding and kindness. I trust her completely and she is beyond competent. I would recommend her any day.

Kristina is absolutely amazing. She is so patient, and a great listener, she makes me feel very comfortable and safe.

Written on Dec 15, 2022 after therapy with Kristina for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Kristina is so easy to talk to and has such a gentle voice that when she responds it nearly calms me immediately. She is patient and understanding and genuinely respectful. The idea that anyone would take time out of their day, possibly any time of day or night, to respond to a message when you're in distress is so heart warming. And Kristina responds with passion and care in every message. She helped me feel valid and seen after just one session and I will be returning to her for as long as I can.
