About Christina

Individuals come for a variety of reasons. Concerns stem from a variety of dark or frustrating places that often leave them feeling overwhelmed with work and family or school or without a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives.

Couples counselling often focuses on identifying unmet needs and turning toward each other again.

While I use a number of approaches for individuals, a large part of my practice is using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a quick and long lasting psychotherapy that has been successful in helping people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic, and a number of other concerns.

With Intensive sessions, the amount of time you spend in therapy could very possibly be just a few days. Intensives are usually 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in afternoon for 3-4 days in a row. Advantages of intensive therapy include treatment efficiency, reduced risk of treatment-related destabilization, reduced risk of life crises disrupting treatment, and rapid results which preclude further suffering or harm from the symptoms. The economy is compelling: even compared to other trauma therapy, the intensive format roughly halves treatment time, because of time not spent on a) checking in at the beginning of each session, b) addressing current crises and concerns, c) focusing on stabilizing and coping skills that the client won’t need after trauma healing, or d) assisting the client in regaining composure at the end of the session.
