Supervised Psychotherapist

Wild Tree Wellness 2023

Christina (she/her) believes healing comes from within. Christina offers traditional talk therapy as well as two experiential forms of therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Brainspotting. EMDR focuses upon processing negative beliefs about the self perpetuated through experiences that have left an emotional imprint to find present day relief of symptoms. Brainspotting uses a fixed eye gaze associated with distress and allows you to move through that distress to decrease nervous system activation. Brainspotting allows your brain to heal itself without even speaking if you so choose.

If traditional talk therapy has not felt successful in the past, you feel stuck within the same concerns, cannot move through uncomfortable body sensations or feelings, and have not processed emotional experiences from your past, EMDR and/or Brainspotting may further you along on your healing journey. Christina is here to be an anchor for you in that healing process.

Already have a great talk therapist but also want to complete trauma treatment to further your healing? Christina offers short term trauma intensives using EMDR and/or Brainspotting. Intensives are specific trauma focused treatment that occurs for several hours a day over the course of a week or more. The benefits of doing an intensive are the potential to move through trauma and work toward healing in a shorter period of time, having a specific time set aside in advance to come prepared to do the work, and have a treatment tailored specific to concerns you want addressed within an open window of time that can feel stunted in just a therapeutic hour.
