About Me

Restorative Trauma Practice is located in Downtown Barrie, Ontario. Cristina Del Principe (MSW, RSW, Social Worker, Psychotherapist / EMDR Basic Training & Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Levels 1 & 2) completed her Masters of Social Work at the University of Toronto in 2012. She combines a respectful, practical, and kind demeanour with extensive training and practice in relational and in-depth mindfulness therapy approaches. These approaches allow for the whole person — thoughts, feelings, physiology, behaviours, and survival reactions — to be heard, understood, and worked with to achieve your goals. Cristina works specifically with individuals who have experienced interpersonal violence throughout their lives (i.e. emotional, psychological, physical, and sexual) and are struggling with post-traumatic stress reactions. When an individual is violated, their whole person is impacted, which echoes into all areas of life. Such impacts may include anxiety, depression, intrusive memories, feelings, and body reactions, experiences of disconnection, addictive and/or relational challenges, and strong feelings of shame, low self-worth, guilt, fear, and confusion, among other issues.
