I am a certified Hypnotherapist in the Depth Hypnosis Model as well as a visual artist. Having spent 6 years practicing meditation, my most recent focus has been studying mindfulness and attachment theory, and integrating both into my counseling practice. For 5 years I was a public speaker and youth facilitator based in the Bay Area. My work took me to schools all over the country, teaching workshops on emotional intelligence, community building, self-awareness and forgiveness. I later relocated to Denver, where I taught an 8th grade Life Skills class to refugee students.
Working with students has given me a thorough understanding of the support we need as young people in order to thrive. Though most of my practice is geared towards adults, it has become evident to me that regardless of age, we all need the same things. We need to be reminded that we are capable, powerful, and important. We are worthy of long-term, close, supportive relationships. Healing starts with our relationship to ourselves and the stories we create about who we are.
My priority in my practice is to help my clients go to the root cause of their suffering. From there we can shift the memory of the body and mind, to begin to heal and create the life that we want. We can change our own lives from a life of survival to a life where we are thriving and experiencing long-term happiness.
My practice is located in Mount Vernon, Washington and I also work online and by phone as requested.
"I didn't know what to expect from my first session with Christina. I had never heard of depth hypnosis, but I was intrigued by it. I was severely depressed and felt broken. I was afraid to tell someone (anyone) about my deepest sadness. Talking isn't hard for me...but digging deep and revealing my real truths? That really made me nervous. But my first meeting with Christina changed all of that. She has a warmth that instantly makes you feel comfortable. Once I met her I felt so comfortable I probably talked too much!
Christina is simply impressive. Not only does she draw from her education, but she draws from her heart. She does this work because she cares about your soul. Her work is priceless, and I'm forever grateful for my time with her."
