Cristina’s teaching experience sets a solid cornerstone for her practice and mission. She is uniquely adept at dovetailing the goals of clients with her family systems approach to wellness, providing both youth and adults with the tools and confidence necessary to navigate the challenges unique to the Greenwich area.
