Disclaimer: I am not a therapist and in no way is this work designed to take the place of traditional therapy. It can work in conjunction with it very well. I hold the highest integrity while working with clients and because the nature of my work is very non-traditional, it is important to have a network of support as you engage in your own healing process.
"I have been working with Chrisitna for almost a year now. I came to her with a past of childhood trauma and a block to the flow of my life. I wasn’t sure exactly what I needed, but I knew I needed healing. Not surprisingly, I was afraid of others and isolated. Christina is loving and safe, and I was able to build trust with her. Christina shares a deep unconditional loving presence that is rare and a treasure, something I hope to be able to cultivate within and even one day share that gift with others now that I’ve been blessed to have experienced it. She has taught me that others can be loving and safe, and has helped me to start to trust others again. Ultimately trauma leaves one feeling alone and separated from the tribe. Christina is one of the very few people that has been able to break through that for me, to help me feel not so alone and to feel safe to bring my real, whole self, which is incredibly healing. Christina asks me to set an intention before each session, and I am amazed how that intention comes up and is addressed naturally in each session. My first session, my intention was to feel safe. During the session, I felt such warmth in my lower stomach, a strange feeling of safety, a remembering. Only for a bit, before my body rejected it and felt scared/threatened by it. What a learning! My body was scared to feel safe. But I learned what safety felt like. Over the course of our sessions, we kept settling into safety, then we could move onto other emotions or life issues. I was amazed what could come up in Christina’s presence, things I was very unconscious of. She truly accepts all parts of me, and all parts of me can tell, and so they do come out! And they have stories to tell, and tears to cry, and Christina is there to help me know how to talk to them, to comfort them, to show them love, as she does to me. She’s given me so many tools and more importantly the experience of grounding, holding, unconditional love, curiosity, allowing, and acceptance so that I can and have started to learn to internalize these qualities within myself and to my inner child/parts, so that they feel safe to be unburdened. My self-protective mechanisms do still come out, although less frequently because when they do Christina acknowledges them and tells them they are welcome, and is somehow able to get their hackles down to continue the healing. I am still trying to learn this so I can mimick it within myself! She is a wizard at respectfully and compassionately getting through layers of defenses to the core wounding. Christina helps me to differentiate what parts are truly me, and which voices or beliefs were from outside (parents, others) but that I’ve internalized. I’ve been surprised to grow more in my emotional range including joyous, safe, and happy emotions which I didn’t know were blocked in me. Christina knows just how to meet anger, sadness, joy, confusion, numbness, dissociation, dysregulation, playfulness – all of it – and teaches me how to allow more of it in my life and how to interact compassionately with whatever comes up. Christina keeps supporting me to learn more about myself, to help me find my voice, and to expand my emotional range in a safe, supportive environment. The very bright light within her awakens and speaks to the light within me, and makes it safe for it to start to come out. She’s helping me to be reborn, and to learn so much which perhaps a parent may teach a child, but we don’t all have perfect parents. I always leave a session feeling more myself, integrated, and whole, even after addressing and touching quite traumatic and painful past experiences and seeing how they still affect me today. It’s healing without being retraumatizing. I have many emotional flashbacks, but Christina creates a safe holding environment so I’m not overwhelmed, not alone, and then can internalize that holding within myself when out of session. -- My deeply buried inner child sees Christina’s inner child, and feels safe to come out after spending many years in hiding under a hardened numbed exterior, after wanting to be taken seriously as a woman in a corporate tech environment, and trying to stay safe after having grown up in a difficult/dysfunctional household. Even though we do very hard deep work, I never leave a session feeling worse or dissociated like I tend to do with talk therapy. I always leave feeling integrated and more myself. Every day I walk in with something different arising, and every day Christina knows just how to meet me, so that I can learn from her example how to meet myself outside of our sessions."
