About Christina

Have you found yourself surrounded by people and yet felt totally alone? Or maybe you're sitting with friends and you catch yourself wondering why something feels like it's missing? We strive to connect and yet something keeps us from having those deep connections we hope for. 

Somewhere along the way we learn that the world is not safe. To open ourselves to the world and to be people would not be safe for us. But we still want to avoid feeling lonely so we do our best to create some type of connection, but often we maintain a distance. Sometimes we even learn to disconnect from ourselves because it just seems like the safer bet. This distance comes through in different coping mechanisms like people pleasing, keeping packed schedule, or maybe you find yourself constantly having excuses to avoid being social. 

Eventually we notice that something isn't working, we're surrounded by people and yet we feel alone. With a client centred and trauma informed approach I help my clients to reconnect to themselves and others. Whether that be through work with couples or individuals, I hold space for both. 

Some key areas I work with are communication, boundaries, self worth/self esteem and anxiety, all of which feed into creating stronger relationships with self and other.
