I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor, who has been working with Adults, children and families in crises for the past 18 years. While my training is secular, I am a Christian and my faith informs much of my clinical work in that I apply a biblical perspective to the challenges of my client’s lives. I use scripture to guide me in helping provide solutions to many of my client’s problems as I help guide them toward emotional and spiritual wholeness. My role as their counselor is to aid them in recognizing and embracing the hope and power of Christ to heal from whatever plagues them. I look forward to the opportunity to use the gifts God has bestowed upon me to help whomever is reading this profile.

Cristina has, in short, been a godsend. Even with how out-there my thoughts sometimes get, she is willing to listen and is able to understand where I am coming from. She is not overly suspicious, nor is she judgmental. I can tell that she takes time to listen to me and understands that I am a person, not a list of symptoms waiting for a label.
Cristina is truly remarkable. Not only with her 18+ years of experience, she has truly lifted a weight off of my shoulders that I have been carrying around for several years. She is easy to speak with, she does not judge you, and she is FOR her clients. She provides encouragement, honesty, and practical next steps. Her approach is well-rounded, and cohesive. She was made for this work, and if you are her client you will not regret it!
