I am a licensed professional counselor with over 13 years of experience working as a mental health professional. I have had experience with working with people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds on a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, Autism Spectrum Disorder, personality disorders, substance addiction, identity problems, self-esteem problems, intellectual disabilities and ADHD (to name a few). I also have helped many people who have experienced physical and emotional trauma. Moreover, I am a School Psychologist. Throughout my 13 years of experience, I have worked several different jobs in the mental health field.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and person centered techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I will act as and genuinely will be a compassionate facilitator, will listen without judgment, and will acknowledge your experience without moving the conversation in another direction. I will be there to encourage and support you and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the process of self-discovery.
I am looking forward to getting to know you. I want you to know that therapy is not a quick fix to things, it is a journey. You will have to be patient with yourself through the process. I will be patient, as well. I would like for you to know that I will not ever judge you and will always provide a listening ear to whatever thoughts and feelings that you are experiencing in your life. It takes courage to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I am here to do life with you. I look forward to working with you and it will be an honor to serve you!

I feel I have grown from having Kristina as my therapist in the short few months I've worked with her. It's nice to work with someone that you feel you can be honest with her and she won't judge you. I like feeling like my therapist is human too and she struggles with similar sh!t I do. It seems like when I have a dilemma going on, Kristina is thinking of something I could try to help me get through the challenge. It's been a huge comfort to me to know that I have her to guide me, nurture me, and encourage me to be the best version of myself.
Kristina is kind and engaging. She is comforting, supportive yet professional and informative. I eagerly look forward to our sessions. She’s absolutely amazing.
Kristina has been very warm and kind. I really appreciate that she is always in my corner, reminding me that I should take care of myself and listen to my own needs. I highly recommend Kristina to anyone who wants to be heard.
