If you have a child with special needs or health issues, Cristina is experienced in helping them “learn how to learn” through play therapy and simple interaction.
Cristina Spataro has worked with children and families in crisis for the past 17 years. If there is one thing she has learned, it is that everyone has the capacity for change if they truly want it. Life is hard, and the “right” choices are not always so apparent. Our decisions and their consequences leave us questioning ourselves.

I know the world of expats very well, being one myself, and I know how settling into a new country can bring a sense of loneliness and isolation, for those who took this choice but also for children and who followed their partners, been forced to leave their jobs, suspending their careers and personal growth projects.
Reaching out for support is the first step in the right direction to a better life. I believe that everyone has the potential to overcome their challenges and it is my commitment to support this journey using an approach based on acceptance, active listening, and coping skills. I have been working in family settings for several years as a Psychologist in Italy. Since I moved to New York I started my career as a School Psychologist in the only Italian-bilingual School in New York, helping adults and adolescents find new strategies and considering different points of views when dealing with transitions, familiar issues, and anxiety.

I work with individuals across the lifespan and have significant experience working with children , families and adults.
I continue to be amazed by the power of relationships to heal the deepest, most persistent sources of pain. I am committed to helping people make contact with the parts of themselves that are whole and healthy, those that are untouched by whatever difficulties or trauma they may have experienced. I do this by paying close attention to your thoughts and feelings in the present while also including your body in the process, noticing how you experience your feelings physically. Throughout this process we work collaboratively to harness your innate resources for growth, resilience, and change.

I bring empathy, optimism, and playfulness to my work with children . I work with children between the ages of 5-18 on coping skills related to friendships, challenges at school, and challenges at home. I am also a neuropsychologist and I conduct comprehensive neuropsychological and autism spectrum disorder evaluations with both children and adults. I understand how neurodevelopmental and mood disorders affect children and I know how to engage children surrounding these challenges. I was born outside the US, so I am sensitive to different cultural perspectives a child may be exposed to at home.

I believe life can get better. My style is active and emotionally connected, always respectful of the client's concerns, whether working with adults, children , or teens. My training helps me see the "big picture," but my skills include the flexibility to focus on concrete issues. Problems are quickly identified, because therapy does not have to last for years. Yet, many clients find value in examining life over the long term, within a warm, accepting therapeutic relationship, colored by directness, honesty, and humor.

Being vulnerable, feeling safe, laughing, and pushing past the distress are just a few of the moments that are shared in the therapeutic relationship journey. I often work with individuals, children , families and couples who feel lost and hopeless after experiencing trauma or feeling stuck by perpetuating issues. At times, experiences that we go through may also lead to anxiety, depression, and feeling lost for how to move forward. I work with individuals to help identify ways to have these "rocks" removed and develop plans that could be accessed outside of our therapy sessions.

Through evidence based treatments, I address concerns such as phase of life difficulties, professional life slumps and challenges, parent- child relational issues, relationship difficulties, poor emotion regulation, anxiety, depression, and self-injury.
I'm a clinical psychologist who empowers women to feel fierce and confident in their chosen professional life while also building and maintaining meaningful personal relationships. I also help adolescents and parents navigate life transitions. For many of my clients, a lack of skills, low self-esteem, minimal self-empathy, and/or past hurts tend to get in the way of hitting desired goals and having fulfilling relationships. For adolescents finding autonomy while also dealing with ridiculously big emotions can wear on teens and parents. Ultimately, this results in feelings of depression, anxiety, emotion dysregulation, and possibly even self-harm.

What type of New York mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in New York?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
