My approach to treating OCD is empathetic, curious, and supportive. I first seek to understand, then I'll offer tools and skills that are effective for treatment. Outside of being a therapist, I spend my time being active, hiking, working out, and dancing, specifically Latin dance. I love to travel, try new restaurants, and dedicate time to connecting with loved ones.

Get to know Cristina Nicolau

When I began my career working as a high school math teacher, I developed an interest in supporting students with more than just solving equations. This led me to pursue a career as a school counselor. As I evolved in this field and helped both students and their families, I decided to pursue my license as a counselor. Since then, I've gained clinical experience working with a variety of age groups and diagnoses.

In my previous place of employment, I gained clinical experience and training in OCD treatment and found ERP to be effective. Working with people affected by OCD was very rewarding, which led me to pursue it fully.

Anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship concerns.

My intention is to co-create a therapeutic plan with you that's most supportive of your needs and goals.

Discuss your fears with me. We can troubleshoot and come up with a plan that will support your needs. I will do my best to meet those needs.
