Professional statement

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.

Message to clients

Making the choice to begin therapy is a radical act of self-love. My mission is to provide a supportive, affirming space where clients can explore and better understand their challenges, cultivate a more trusting relationship with themselves, and experience greater joy.

Taking part in deep therapeutic work and individual and community healing practices can transform societies. Whether you’re navigating change, experiencing stress and anxiety, coping with trauma, struggling with self-acceptance, or simply seeking to expand your self-awareness, you deserve a space for healing and care.


Cultural adjustment - Acclimating to a new environment; managing stress and coping with feelings of loss and separation from familiar people and places

Domestic violence - Caring support along the pathway to safety, wellbeing, and healing for those surviving a partner’s abusive attempts to control one’s thoughts, beliefs, and actions

Life transitions - Coping with difficult or impactful life changes, such as moving to a new area, relationship transitions, child rearing, or career changes; learning self-care to better manage resulting stress

Self-esteem - Cultivating self-compassion, assertiveness, and confidence; developing ways to reduce suffering, anxiety, social withdrawal, and self-neglect

Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse

Women's issues - Therapy tailored to common concerns among women; providing a safe and understanding space to address life challenges, stressors, and questions around identity as a woman
