Hi, I am Christina! If you're looking for a safe, affirming, and healing space to feel seen & heard, I'd be honored to create that for you.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Shrewsbury, NJ
Mindfulness-based Therapy focuses on increasing awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and actions that can create road blocks in progress. Increasing awareness can allow us the space to engage with those aspects of ourselves, learn to tweak our language, and choose how to respond. Some mindfulness techniques that I use in sessions with clients are guided meditation, breathing, and different forms of movement like walking.
Counseling is not meant to be a one size fits all approach. Integrative therapy combines different therapeutic practices and techniques to fit the needs of each individual client. Our integrative approach helps clients explore what is causing challenges in their life and helps them begin to approach life in a more open and productive way that works for them.
Holistic Therapy addresses you as a whole person (mind, body, & spirit). I see you as more than just the reason you walk into our office. Our holistic supportive services are focused on helping individuals develop a much deeper understanding of themselves at all levels, which can often lead to improved self-esteem and self-awareness.
Whether you have high functioning depression, a few days of intense sadness, or longer periods where you feel as though getting out of bed is impossible - your experience and feelings are real and valid. If you need space to heal old or current wounds, I want to offer you a place to process through those feelings and experiences to release and be able to receive the happiness and peace you have been searching for!
Anxiety is like a constant feeling of being unsettled. If you are feeling lost, fearful or unsupported, I can help you find ways to enjoy the here & now, stop overthinking everything, and create a safe space to process those unsettling feelings. Managing your anxiety in a way that feels right for you in a supportive environment can make all the difference in living your life in the present.
Given the stressors LGBTQ+ groups must confront, finding a therapist who specializes in working with LGBTQ+ populations or is openly LGBTQ+ can offer support & healing. Our primary goal is to affirm, encourage, and celebrate you as you navigate through life’s challenges! Whether you are single, partnered, closeted, transitioning, or questioning, you will find authentic & genuine support from me. You are WELCOME & SAFE here!
