Specialties at a glance: Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, life transitions, substance abuse and other compulsive behaviors.

Hello! My name is Christina and I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and owner of WholeMind, LLC. I created this practice with the idea that, as people, we should feel whole, but we often experience life in a way that makes us feel less than that. When a piece of ourselves becomes lost or damaged it can be difficult to navigate how to repair it or put the pieces of ourselves back together again.

As intimidating as it can be to start the healing process, I am here to help every step of the way. I offer a safe space where we can work together to identify issues and create realistic solutions.

I offer tailored therapy services at The Psychology Group Fort Lauderdale for adults experiencing a range of issues including depression & anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, life transitions, and related areas. I also have experience with substance abuse issues and other compulsive behaviors. I use an integrative approach and use various treatment techniques and methods (such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy -CBT) based on your individual needs and goals. My goal is to help you become your best self and live your most balanced life, whatever that may mean to you!
