Professional statement

Christina Osborne is a counselor in Colorado. She works with adults older than 25. Many of Christina’s clients come in to address OCD, eating disorders, attachment trauma, complex PTSD, and life transitions. Christina is particularly passionate about serving folx who identify as neurodivergent and/or LGBTQ+, empaths and highly-sensitive people, and those recovering from the harmful impacts of religion, cults and toxic families.

Christina is trained in contemplative psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), sensorimotor psychotherapy, and mindfulness. Using these techniques, she helps clients discover their brilliant sanity and allow it to illuminate the thoughts, habits, and patterns that keep clients inhibited and small, so they can make intuitive and natural changes and create a life of purpose and drive. In session, Christina focuses on somatic exercises, breathing exercises, mindfulness and play, in addition to talk therapy and present-moment relational connection. Taken together, these approaches supports clients to connect with, accept and trust their natural way of being, and make choices in alignment with their highest good and purpose.

Christina's style is compassionate, intuitive and no-nonsense. When clients first start therapy, Christina will establish trust enough that their natural process can unfold. It is common that the symptoms that brings clients to work with Christina are quickly resolved, and the processes underlying those symptoms become the focus of counseling.

Christina received their MA in Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology from Naropa University. She has worked at the Eating Recovery Center, where she led the milieu and ran counseling and therapy groups for adults with full-spectrum eating disorders. Outside of private practice, she is committed to exploring the breadth and depth of human consciousness through travel, new experiences and taking all kinds of unpredictable flying leaps.

Christina offers only remote therapy sessions.


Message to clients

Hi there! I’m Christina and I’m so honored that you’ve considered me to walk with you on your journey. In my world, there’s no such thing as too big, too much or too weird. I adore and embrace individualism, and understand the complexities of navigating how to step into your individual wholeness inside of a big complicated and judgmental collective. Clients often find me because they struggle to find the balance between being themselves and belonging, and after more traditional therapy has left them wanting more.

I have been seeing clients as a therapist for four years, and have been on my own incredible healing journey for the past 15 years. I bring to my work not only my training and experience in counseling, but also my years of practice and study of Buddhism, old religions, shamanism, personal depth psychology, my semi-formal expertise in social justice work, and metaphors… so, so many metaphors. This is a journey I deeply respect, and to those ends, I can promise you that I will ask nothing of you that I haven’t done, or continue to do, myself.

I work exclusively via telehealth as an expression of my own nature that I must honor. Travel and new experiences are deeply important to me. Telehealth has offered me the flexibility to live my most authentic life while continuing to offer support for others.
