GRATITUDE

"When I first encountered Christina, I was at a point where I had lost hope and was ready to give up on life. The weight of my past, my negative mindset, and limiting beliefs had consumed me, leaving me feeling trapped and disconnected from my true essence. I had tried various therapeutic approaches over the years, but none seemed to provide the breakthrough I so desperately needed.

 

In just one session with Christina, everything changed. Her intuitive understanding and compassionate approach created a safe space for me to open up and explore the depths of my emotions, fears, and insecurities. With her guidance, I began to peel back the layers of self-doubt and uncover the true essence of who I am.

 

It felt like years of therapy compressed into a single moment of profound revelation.

 

Christina's commitment to my growth and transformation extended far beyond our sessions. She provided ongoing support and guidance, ensuring that I felt supported every step of the way. Her dedication and belief in my potential served as a constant reminder that I had the power to overcome any obstacle and create the life I truly desired.

 

I am filled with gratitude for Christina's presence in my life. She not only helped me rediscover my inner strength and resilience but also showed me the beauty and potential that lay within me all along. Through her guidance, I have experienced a profound shift in my mindset, my beliefs, and my overall outlook on life."

JOYFUL & CONNECTED HEART

ILLUMINATED & LIBERATED SOUL

"Having struggled with PTSD and tried numerous therapies and medications without experiencing sustained progress, I felt stuck in my healing journey. It was at that moment when I made the life-changing decision to  embark on my first ceremony with Cristina.

The combination of psychedelic medicines and Christina's spiritual guidance proved to be a powerful catalyst for my healing process. Through the ceremony and the subsequent aftercare, I experienced a profound increase in my capacity for emotional and cognitive processing.

My fears and anxieties began to diminish.  Boundaries that once held me back have been dissolved, and I've learned the art of letting go, surrendering, and practicing forgiveness. Most importantly,


I have discovered the power of unconditional love, not only for others but also for myself.

Under Christina's compassionate guidance, I have found true confidence and genuine pride in who I am. My life has taken a new trajectory, one filled with hope, joy, and an awakened sense of purpose.  T

hank you, Christina, for the profound impact you've had on my life and for that, I am eternally grateful."
