About Me

Congratulations on taking the step towards health and wellness. I am honored that you are allowing me to be a part of your healing journey. My 20yrs of professional experience as a licensed clinical social worker, a licensed cosmetologist, and a professional therapeutic clown, has given me the knowledge and resources to help people recover from any of the various trauma that can occur in life. I consider myself a trauma therapist. Many of the clients I see have trauma, attachment, and/or relationship issues. I help people find that true peace that comes from honestly meeting the real needs of the body, mind and spirit to be the person God created you to be. Through self-care, God honoring values, boundaries, and using support systems, people can find success in living authentically. I am willing to journey with you to help you overcome the things that are preventing you from living the life you want.

Here you will find mercy and grace as someone who understands and identifies with the pain that makes living a battle. It is my desire that you find something that helps you gain relief from your pain. I am the real deal, no mask. I promise to do my best to live authentically, and am available to support you in your process. My fabulous resources will hopefully help and encourage you with your journey! Please let me know how I can support you better.

Blessings to You Today!

So far I feel very heard by Christina. She validates what I’m feeling and helps me find healthy ways to work through things. Her suggestions have been practical and effective and I feel like I’m doing better having met with her.
