About Christina

Hello and Welcome! 

My name is Christina and I’m glad you’re here.

Are you ready for a change?

You’ve tried everything you can think of and it’s still a daily struggle to hold it all together. You’re feeling out of control and without authority over your own life. Depression can feel like an endless abyss, anxiety can feel like an endless storm hiding around every corner; but you’re not alone in this journey.

You Have Come to the Right Place

I work with individuals who are stuck and hurting. Many of my clients are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or self esteem. Others have struggled with sudden life transitions, grief and loss, or the pain of trauma. If you feel stuck in your pain, or if you feel like you’re just surviving– you don’t have to stay there! There is hope for the peaceful and thriving life that you so desire!  

Together, we can take a wholistic approach, unraveling any past experiences or negative thought patterns that keep you feeling trapped. Step by step, we explore coping strategies, untangle any complex webs of emotions like grief or trauma, and build tools to help you create the life that you are looking for!

Your Journey to Healing

From your very first session, our goal is to help you find hope, resilience, and happiness once more. It is my mission to create a caring and non-judgmental space for you to explore your inner world, understand your depression, and embark on the path to healing.

My Therapeutic Approach

My therapeutic approach is rooted in understanding your unique journey. I believe that healing starts with a personalized plan tailored to your specific needs. My expertise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness empowers you to identify and change unhelpful thought patterns, regulate your emotions, and live a life that’s free from the shackles of your struggles.

I graduated with my Masters in Social Work from California State University, Monterey Bay. During my time as a school counselor, I enjoyed my work with children and teens from diverse backgrounds, as well as collaborating with families. Having grown up here in our beautiful Nevada County, I am so passionate about working with this community, and helping you find your way back to yourself. 

More About Me 

I’m excited to meet a person, no matter where they are at and help them have the life they have always wanted. 

When I’m not at work, I am spending time with my family and my dog, woodworking, crocheting, and baking. Having grown up in beautiful Nevada County, I make an effort to be outside as much as possible, whether it is going for a hike in the mountains or a swim in the lake. Nature has always been a healing force in my life. 

The following is a list areas I specialize in:

  •  Life Transitions
  • Kids, Teens and Young Adults
  • Play & Art Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Anxiety and Depression
