So very grateful.

Written by S.A. on May 18, 2022 after therapy with Christina for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Christina McGinn was wonderful. When my wife and I signed up for therapy we were both very nervous. After our first session our feelings had completely changed. We would look forward to our sessions with her and found our time together to be fun and very educational. Christina presented different viewpoints on topics we had struggled with which really made us think and helped us understand each other better. Christina was always willing to listen to us and genuinely answered our questions. Christina would ask follow up questions to ensure her answers to our questions were understood by us. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone looking to strengthen their relationship and resolve conflicts.
