My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been practicing therapy for over 5 years, and as a firm believer in evidence-based approaches during sessions, I offer Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat OCD. ERP is backed by evidence, and is proven to treat any OCD subtype. I have a background in working at a cancer support community facility and with the Children’s Bureau, an agency that brings mental health care to children. I’ve handled OCD cases, depression, anxiety, body image issues, grief, and loss. I know I can help you overcome your OCD.


About Me

I recognize the stigma that is wrongly attached to OCD in addition to the impact that particular cultures can have on OCD. ERP offers valuable tools for you to use to learn how self-management of your OCD works. But a connection between the therapist and member built on trust is key to finding success with ERP. I’ll work to establish a good rapport with you, so you can feel safe doing ERP exercises. I’ve been told that I am compassionate and non-judgemental, and make people I’m treating feel comfortable, I enjoy being able to help people in their journey towards recovery, making sure that they feel heard, understood, and validated. I also speak Spanish. I’m here to work with you to get you where you want to be in life.

Christina is the best, I truly enjoy talking to her. She knows when to push me and when to hold back and I feel she is invested in my success and happiness. She also understands my triggers well and is creative with ERP exercises.

My therapist is so cool and helps me regroup and count my wins. She’s also invested in my general well being and feels like a friend. It’s so refreshing every time we meet. She make erp feel much less scary and recovering achievable.

My therapist is well invested in my happiness and wellbeing. She always adjusts ERP to what is going on in my life and we pivot therapy when I need to, while still making progress. I really enjoyed being heard and understood, specially in a world where people don't understand how living with ocd is like.
