A FEW WORDS FROM CRISTA: Life is hard. None of us get it right all the time. My goal for the therapeutic relationship is to provide you with the awareness and skills you will need to achieve the level of functioning you desire. I believe my job as your therapist is to work myself out of a job - by teaching you what I know, helping you apply it, assessing the results and adjusting where necessary.
I recognize that seeing a therapist initially can be intimidating and I strive to create an accepting, open environment for you to grow. Often, that can mean being creative in how we use our therapy time. I will also work closely with other providers you may have to ensure proper functioning for all aspects of your life.
My practice includes working with adolescents and adults in individual and group settings. My areas of expertise and research interests include anxiety reduction, mindfulness and whole person wellness.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you live your best life!
OTHER INTERESTS: I enjoy any new adventure I can find. Aside from spending time with friends and family, I enjoy chips and queso on a patio, mindless walks through Costco on sample day and campfires that I don't have to build.
