*Creative Now Therapy is offering online/video sessions at this time.*
Welcome to Creative Now Therapy. Cristina is interested and excited to know you. She believes you can live your life more fully - that you can become more comfortable with the uncertain, that you can support yourself through difficult experiences, and that you can take those risky steps forward into an ever shifting landscape. Her philosophy and practice are grounded in the process of self-discovery through our present moment experience, creativity, and our body’s wisdom.
Creative Now Therapy's approach is holistic, using mindfulness and creative interventions to enhance your ability to get your needs met and to make choices with more awareness and agency. Cristina will safely guide you in tuning into your body, beliefs, and patterns to support you in developing greater emotional presence/tolerance and to help you in moving more fluidly through difficult life circumstances.
For the past 10 years Cristina has specialized in using somatic (body based) and creative interventions to approach depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, life transitions and strengthening interpersonal communication. She particularly enjoys working with adults and adolescents to find creative and self-identified ways to help expand people's emotional and behavioral repertoire.
Creative Now Therapy offers talk psychotherapy, expressive art therapy, and body-centered psychotherapy to help you tap into core issues. We believe through creative interventions and attending to somatic experiences (body sensations) you can generate a fuller understanding of struggles in order enact behavior change and growth. Cristina also offers sessions in both English and Spanish.
*In March 2020, Autumn Potter, Creative Arts Therapist, will be joining Creative Now Therapy as a limited permit therapist supervised by Cristina. Her expertise and focus is with children and adolescents. Autumn is also offering sliding scale rates to adults. Autumn has close to a decade of experience working as a teacher and this has greatly informed her ability to engage children safely and with compassion.
