Associate Professional Clinical Counselor #14351
Cristina is a multi-cultural San Mateo native, a Spanish-English bilingual clinician with experience in multiple education and health care settings specializing in clinical mental health counseling. She graduated from San Francisco State University with a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and an emphasis in Career Counseling. She also holds a Bachelor's Degree in Public Health with an emphasis in Community Health Education from the same institution.
Newcomers, English learners, unaccompanied immigrants, disability identified folks, first-gen college students, and multiracial identity journeys are all close to Cristina's heart as a result of her robust experience in school.
With an eclectic repertoire and a patient and diligent approach, she has experience with children, individuals, and families going through challenges stemming from stress, trauma and grief. From a strengths-based and holistic lens she works with others through transitional difficulty with a spirit of hope.
In Cristina's spare time she engages in movement through dance and walks in nature. She makes a point to support students of all ages and avidly seeks opportunities to support new or underrepresented artists. To reconnect with herself, music and honey-sweetened tea are her go-to's.
