Christina’s work is grounded in promoting individual and community care, self-love, and healing. Her style is centered in psychodynamic approaches and social justice, which integrate the value of individual history, emotional processes, and social identities.
Many of Christina’s clients are navigating stress, anxiety, difficult life transitions, trauma, abuse, or lack of self-acceptance. She guides them into a deeper understanding of the root causes of these feelings and experiences, exploring their impact on how they see and care for themselves, move through the world, and engage in relationships.
Previously, Christina worked in social justice and advocacy with survivors of intimate partner violence, asylum-seekers, and refugees displaced by violence and oppression. She draws on this experience and approaches her work through a human rights and trauma-informed lens—validating the impacts of past experiences on the present, and the harm societal systems can cause.
