About Me

Christina was inspired to become a mental health counselor when life threw her challenges that were too difficult to handle with the coping skills she had at the time. It was clear that in order to find peace she needed to find meaning in her own struggles. Her own therapeutic journey brought love and harmony back into her life. From feeling more connected in personal relationships to feeling authentic in difficult situations; the tools she learned changed the way she saw and interacted with the world around her. Today, as a mental health counselor, she finds great meaning and the most fulfillment from the opportunities she gets to support others as she once was.
