New beginnings can often be disguised as painful endings. I work closely with those who have been through tragic events, suffered childhood abuse, those who have been victimized by others, as well as those who might feel like they have nowhere left to turn. My goal is to help you find your inner strength, and to courageously be free to display it and be proud. I am empathetic to my client’s needs, ambitious to provide support, and offer a nonjudgmental space for you to share and truly be heard.

Have you tried coping on your own but found that it's not helping? Maybe you don't know how to get back to your old self again and you are realizing it is time for some support. You need something to change. Is your mental health affecting your relationships, responsibilities, daily life and overall well-being? Maybe this difficult season has evolved into a pattern of depression or anxiety. Or perhaps you are someone who has struggled with anxiety or depression for years.

I’m Dr. Christina Zavalza, a licensed clinical psychologist. I believe we are in an era of empowering ourselves unlike any we have seen before. We are becoming more aware of personal, social and cultural issues that can make it difficult to become our best and most powerful selves. Some of the issues we deal with today include trying to overcome trauma, navigating social expectations, balancing needs in relationships with taking care of ourselves, and ultimately wanting to feel empowered and whole in our homes, educational settings, workplace, and communities.

I am very effective with children who have behavioral challenges due to trauma, pressures, family troubles, or unknowns. I easily connect with teens who struggle to fit in or feel understood so they can open up and allow me to help them. I empower young adults who are feeling anxious and/or depressed. I can guide couples to rekindle their passion and commitment for each other as two separate grounded individuals who choose each other on a regular basis. I guide adult individuals who are going through break ups to have major breakthroughs in their journey. Let's get you to wherever you want to be.

My experience is in dual diagnosis. There is a great need for qualified clinicians working with the LGBTQIA+ community, addressing mental health and coping with substance abuse. I am in long-term recovery and can help to manage life stressors in a healthy, manageable way. I also have 11 years experience as a public high school teacher, and can build connections with pre-teens and adolescents experiencing significant transitions in an ever-changing world. The last few years have been chaotic for many of us, yet has served as a lesson in achieving balance. Let's take a look at what worked and what can be revised to work better.

My approach as a therapist is affirming, collaborative, strengths based, and tailored to each client I work with. I focus on providing a judgment-free zone so that clients have space and support to work on their personal goals. I hope to build a strong relationship with each client because I believe that a strong relationship is important to our ability to work together and helps to strengthen the client's ability to reach their goals. Therapy can sometimes be hard work and often means facing difficult experiences from our past. My hope is that I am providing a space where the client never feels alone in the process.

There is nothing wrong with the way your brain works. You're going to hate this, but the key to thriving as a neurodivergent person is practicing self-compassion and giving yourself permission to do things the way you need to. I don't blame you for trying to "fix" yourself - many well-intentioned therapists get a lot of things wrong about neurodiversity, so of course you would be confused. Sometimes you feel so smart and capable but other times you feel like you’re falling behind, and you might wonder if you even deserve to feel better.

These symptoms often feel like being on the edge, sudden panic, running thoughts, sadness, worry, difficulty sleeping, or sleeping too much. It can also feel like feeling lost, misunderstood and easily distracted. My approach is to create an environment where you feel understood, seen, and heard. We can explore your struggles, feelings, thoughts, and guide you to examine your experiences with the goal of improving your quality of life.

I am here to help those that are looking to explore new ways of working with others or coming into their own and setting boundaries with others. Part of growing is learning how to adapt to the world around us, but it is also about growing in truly loving ourselves and building the world within us. Keeping secrets, feeling like you don't have a voice, and feeling without the power to stand up against those that are mistreating oneself come from feeling like you are not valued or because we were taught growing up to stay silent.

I have broad experience helping with depression, anxiety, gender and sex addiction challenges. I can be a resource for those seeking healing from trauma and abuse. My main interest is to help clients going through change, life transitions, and the adjustment phases in life that we experience as we age, grow and evolve in our perceptions of ourselves including our own gender and sexuality. I am sensitive to each client’s own unique ways of being in the world. I provide treatment that is tailored to lived experiences, interests and perspectives in hopes of cultivating the changes in my client’s lives that they feel ready to make.

I believe collaboration and compassion are at the root of a successful therapeutic relationship. I offer an open, non-judgmental space where you can speak honestly about your thoughts and experiences while working towards your personal goals. I use a client-centered and trauma-informed approach and enjoy incorporating mindfulness and somatic exercises to aid in regulating emotions and releasing the stress held in the body. Some areas I am especially passionate about working with are anxiety, life-transitions, gender, sexuality, identity, relationship dynamics, self-esteem, depression, sexual assault, trauma and chronic pain.

"At the center of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." -Lao Tzu. I believe this to be true for all individuals, though depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms can obscure this understanding, leaving us lost and confused along the way. I work with individuals and couples who have deviated from or lost sight of their values, and are looking for guidance in defining and living a life of peace and purpose.

Your partnership may be suffering and you're wondering why/how the relationship has deteriorated so much over time. Or perhaps you've lost your way on your own path. Wherever you find yourself, there is hope for healing. We often become out of touch with our true nature throughout our lives, but in therapy we can explore our whole selves in order to grow and increase overall well-being. At our cores, we are relational beings who thrive when we feel connected to ourselves and to each other. If you're feeling disconnected and without hope in any area(s) of your life, change is possible and you don't have to navigate the journey alone.

It is possible to unlearn the messages that no longer serve you, and to work towards the life you want to build. Healing starts with validation of your lived experiences. Often, harmful messages about our race, gender, sexuality and ability can impact our self-perception, sense of safety and connection to others. We can work together to name, unlearn, and navigate through these messages, so you can live life authentically and joyfully.
