Professional statement

Christina Algeciras, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, serves clients throughout Florida. Her expertise lies in guiding individuals to rediscover authentic, joyful, and fulfilling lives. While many clients may appear to have their lives in order, they often grapple with inner challenges such as emptiness, disappointment, and anxiety.

Christina provides a safe and empathetic space for clients to explore their feelings. Her therapeutic approach centers on depth psychology, incorporating methods such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), feminist perspectives, mindfulness techniques, and somatic therapies like Body Dreaming. As a certified yoga instructor with over three decades of experience as a practitioner and student of Eastern philosophies and healing modalities, she seamlessly integrates mind-body practices into her sessions. Christina also holds certifications in coaching, trauma-informed therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.

She earned her Master’s degree in Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. Christina's primary focus is facilitating deep healing by integrating psychotherapy, mind-body practices, creativity, and a healthy lifestyle. Her ultimate aim is to empower clients to rediscover self-love and reignite their passion for life.

Christina offers telehealth services to clients across Florida. Her commitment extends to fostering personal growth and holistic well-being, transcending traditional therapy. She believes in the transformative power of integrating mind, body, and soul practices. Whether through art therapy, exploring the intersection of mental health and nutrition, or facilitating spiritual practices, Christina aims to empower individuals to lead balanced, meaningful lives. She firmly believes that financial security, personal growth, continuous learning, and nurturing high-quality personal relationships are essential components of a fulfilling life, and she collaborates closely with her clients to help them achieve these goals.


Message to clients

Embarking on the journey of therapy can feel intimidating. It's not always easy to find a therapist with whom you truly connect and feel comfortable opening up to. Research underscores the significance of the therapeutic relationship in the healing process. One of my initial objectives when working with new clients is to cultivate a foundation of trust and connection. I am dedicated to creating a nurturing and compassionate space where you can freely explore your inner world.

Therapy, at its core, is a voyage of self-discovery—an opportunity to understand yourself on a deeper level. After all, you are your lifelong companion, and investing in therapy is one of the most valuable investments you can make in yourself.

If you're prepared to embark on a path towards a more profound and meaningful relationship with yourself, to unravel the obstacles that hinder your progress, and to embrace a life that exudes purpose and fulfillment, I invite you to reach out. Consider scheduling a complimentary 15-minute consultation with me to determine whether I'm the right fit to accompany you on your journey.
