Cristina is by far the most amazing counselor I have connected with, on teen counseling but also compared to in-person therapy! She genuinely cares about the people she connects with, and prioritizes their needs above anything else. I'd highly recommend her to anyone seeking counseling!

Cristina has been a huge help and brought a lot of peace for me in a time when I'm experiencing anxiety and sadness. She is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and has great insight.

Cristina is loving, caring and listens very well. She is very capable of developing a good relationship with youth. She makes herself available and is flexible when needed.

Christina is great, service is just a little too expensive, I’ll be canceling soon but it was a good introduction to therapy

Cristina has been a great outlet and therapist to speak with on a weekly basis. She listens and asks thought provoking questions to challenge me and take an objective perspective. It has been just what I needed!

Very attentive and sounds extremely well versed based on our first conversation. I love that she has a plan for me. In my prior therapy experiences I'm not sure if there was a plan in place for me to work with.

I only had one session with Cristina, but I really valued the time I got with her. She's very friendly, understanding and easy to talk with, which makes opening up a little less scary.
