Kristina believes that effective therapy supports setting healthy boundaries, practicing skills in
emotional regulation and exercising self management. She believes the collaborative efforts of
counseling, helpful resources and productive coping skills can help make matters feel less
difficult when working through it together. She is person-centered and values a holistic approach
to treatment planning, supporting her clients physically, mentally, and spiritually.
She specializes in therapeutic modalities addressing issues related to self-esteem and self-worth, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal effectiveness. Her different approaches include Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Play Therapy, and Expressive Art. It is her desire to build a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship with her clients to provide an environment for healing and personal growth. Kristina graduated with her Masters of Art degree in Educational and Clinical
Counseling from Azusa Pacific University.

She has worked in the Temecula Unified School District for 6 years with students from elementary, middle, and high school settings.
