Professional statement

Christina Algeciras is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in South Florida. Christina is passionate about helping women reconnect with authentic, joyful, fulfilling lives. Many of her clients externally appear to have their lives in order, however internally feel empty, disappointed, frustrated, and stuck. Sometimes, this can result in a mental health condition like anxiety or depression. Other times, it creates relationship conflict at home and at work or leads to an overall sense that something is “off.”

Christina supports clients by giving them a compassionate and empathic space to talk about their feelings. She utilizes evidence-based and trauma informed modalities like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), existential, feminist and psychodynamic frameworks along with mindfulness-based therapy practices to help clients learn how to increase their self-awareness and use of coping strategies. Christina is a certified yoga instructor with over 30 years of experience as a practitioner in eastern philosophies and healing modalities. Christina often incorporates elements of mind-body practice and eastern philosophy into sessions. She also has additional training in coaching and trauma-informed therapy.

Christina earned a Master’s degree in Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. She is interested in helping people heal on a deep level and exploring everything from how psychotherapy, mind-body practices, creativity, and healthy eating and cooking can lead to increased wellbeing. Her goal is to help clients rediscover what they love about themselves and their lives.

Christina is available for all clients in the State of Florida via telehealth services.


Message to clients

The process of starting therapy can be a bit daunting, it's not easy to find someone you connect with and open up to someone you don't know. Research has shown that the therapeutic relationship is crucial to healing, one of my first goals in working with new clients is to develop a relationship of trust and connection - I strive to create an environment where you can be free to be yourself and explore your inner landscape in a supportive and compassionate space.

Therapy is ultimately a process of getting to know yourself better - you are going to be with yourself your entire life and therapy is one of the most worthwhile investments you will ever make.

If you are ready to develop a deeper and more meaningful relationship with yourself, untangle things that are getting in the way, and lean into growing a life that feels meaningful and fulfilling, please reach out to schedule a complementary 15 minute consultation to see if I may be a good fit for you on your journey.
