I have over 5 years of experience in crisis work. Crisis work has a huge range and entails so much that is why I gain a wealth of knowledge during this time in western mental health and different modalities.

For over 2 years I work in global philanthropy where I learned a lot about cultural adaptation and sensitivity. There are many different ways of approaching a situation and while I was working around the globe I was able to learn many. In the last couple of years, I went into private practice in Puerto Vallarta where I still work a lot with expats from all over the world who struggle trying to fit into a new country and culture. While I see many expats from all over the world, that is not the only population I work with.

My method is to meet the client where they are and really listen so that I get a much better understanding of where they are. Once I fully understand, I work with the client to identify one problem at a time that the client sees fit so we can improve their quality of life.

Christine has been amazing through our time working together. When we started working together I was in a really dark place, over our time working together she has really helped me to deal with these thoughts and feelings as well as giving me the tools to deal with them in the future. I am eternally grateful for how she has changed my life

She really makes you comfortable to point out what you need to and shows that she's really listening. The way the session is conducted is very favourable for having insights.

I had high expectations due to my ex-therapist, whom I attended in person, but the session with Christine was great. As another review said, she is well articulated, patient and present. I strongly recommend.

Therapist is well articulated, patient and present. You get a sense that she is listenning to you and that she wants to help you find a solution to your queries.

Christine was amazing. In just one session she could deeply understand myself and the issues I presented. She gave me good insights to feel better. I would definitely recommend her work.
