I help Sensitive Souls connect back to themselves, heal and recover from the effects of life's challenges and traumas with Somatic & Energetic Therapies.
You don’t have enough protection from the overwhelming environment around you.
You long for positive change, but the frozen stuck feelings don’t let you move forward. You're in quicksand... stuck!
Your heart desires closeness with another, and then pushes it away.
You choose and are confused by people who don’t have sensitivity towards you. You're told you're too sensitive.
After years of inner work, it still hurts inside.
You take in feelings so deeply from your loved ones that they take you over and become your own.
Your sensitivity has not had the support it needs, and your overall health has been impacted.
But to unravel the layers of emotions and patterns, to begin to re-route neural pathways, we have to connect back with our physical selves. This is why the somatic approach works so well. My approach is heart-centered, energetic and body-based, not just cognitive.
you’ve probably found that you gained a lot of insight, but didn’t feel any different (or the improvements didn’t last). That’s because we need more than talk to heal and move forward. We need to go deeper, to access pain and memories where they’ve taken root — in our bodies.
Our goal is to heal layer by layer and continue to grow towards a more fulfilling life and a stronger sense of self, a SecureSelf
Reach out for support more, instead of holding it all in on their own
Feel more connected to their direction and purpose in life
Now have tool to interrupt the overthinking, ruminating
and worrying spirals
Set healthy boundaries around how much they give, and to whom
Bring more compassion & choice to their self-coping behavior patterns
Gain tools and practices for when life feels too hard, too much or not enough
Are more present and grounded and trust life more
Be Seen, Be Held, Be Supported
in a way that restores your sense of self. Gives you a secure foundation to make wiser choices, so you can move towards the things that matter to you most.
Together we create a container to support your deepest longings and bring healing
to your most tender hurts.
Darcey - Bay Area
“I always leave a session feeling more myself, integrated, and whole, even after addressing and touching quite traumatic and painful past experiences and seeing how they still affect me today. It’s healing without being retraumatizing. I have many emotional flashbacks, but Christina creates a safe holding environment so I’m not so overwhelmed, not so alone, and then can internalize that holding within myself when out of session.”
Dee - California
“Christina has given me so many tools and more importantly the experience of grounding, holding, unconditional love, curiosity, allowing, and acceptance so that I can and have started to learn to internalize these qualities within myself and to my inner child/parts, so that they feel safe to be unburdened. ”
Sera - Hawaii
“I look forward to my bi weekly session with Christina, I feel truly seen, heard and cared for in her presence. . Our work together is helping me connect deeper to my body wisdom and to my inner little one self. I am getting more honest with myself and how much support I am needing and have needed for most of my life, I've been doing it all alone, which has been the case for a long time. It’s changing though and I am able to reach out for support now when things feel hard, and I am able to use the somatic skills she has taught me to resource myself and take much better care of myself. ”
Mary - Oakland
“I am so grateful for Christina. I reached out to her while I was
pregnant. I was under a lot of stress and baby was pass due with still now sign of him coming. Christina first guided me back into my body and then from there we talked through all the layers of pressure I was feeling and she helped me to talk to my baby about it. She also had me share with him, when the exact date for the scheduled C-section was so that he could participate in the experience & know it was coming, and that he didn't cause the stress that was happening. We then worked to let go of the outcome.
To my surprise, the early morning of the day the C-section was scheduled I went into labor, he was born vaginally. Thank you so much Christina!
“I was asked by a friend to be a support layer in his private womb surround turn. It was an intimate, precious and safe experience. I had no idea what I was getting into! Christina is very skilled in container and space holding and group directing. She is grounded in her body and therefore notices and responds to subtle shifts in group energy and dynamics. Even though I was just a support layer I found it truly healing to be part of this small group and would highly recommend Christina as a practitioner”
