About My Services
I work with adults, children, and babies of all ages. Somatic therapy is holistic medicine that addresses the relationship between the mind and body with the back-drop of physiological and psychological history. Trauma, be it psychological of physical, large or seemingly small, effects the delicate stability of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and its response to stress.

Cranial Sacral Therapy is effective in reducing and eliminating chronic pain in a wide spectrum of conditions, and often correcting the underlying dysfunction. Its therapeutic effects on the nervous system reduce chronic sympathetic irritation by balancing the reticular formation(reticular alarm system) and by reducing facilitated spinal segments.
Heal From Birth
This is meant to include all adults. The CDC-Kaiser Permanente ACE Study (Adverse Childhood Experiences) conducted between 1995-1997 demonstrated ACEs are linked to chronic health problems, mental illness, and substance use problems in adulthood. The latest research in neuroscience and epigenetics reveal the majority of disease is linked to the environment in which a child is conceived, develops in utero, birthed, and raised from the earliest years from 0-3.

Now Offering Distance Therapy
I became trained in CST after my second child was delivered by C-Section and the delivery almost resulted in death. He had a number of mid-line defects including a heart murmur, sacral dimple, and hypospadias. My son couldn’t nurse because he had a posterior tongue-tie and a very high palette. After my lactation consultants advised I seek Cranial Sacral Therapy, I did, and at the first treatment session he was able to…

Mom with a 5 year old Austistic Son
I just didn’t get any sleep. Since my son was born, the unrest in our home was destroying my marriage and my nerves were always on edge. I saw Christianna for a session just for me and she talked to me about my birth story with my son. I never realized how much trauma I had experienced during the birth of my son. Just knowing that what I went through and what my son experienced could be what was causing all of our unrest, allowed me to release. I cried so much for the first time. She came to my home for the second session to work with my son and I. Halfway through the session, my son disappeared while we were working with his birth story. Christianna found him curled up in our bed. He slept for fourteen hours that day and night. He got up to eat and went right back to sleep. After just a couple sessions, my son was starting to sleep in his own bed for part of the night. I was so thankful for the rest. I never knew what trauma we had all been through and that his autistic patterns could be a result of his birth.
Woman In her 50s; raped repeatedly by a family friend when she was a child
For the first time in my life, I felt peace in my body. It took a couple months of therapy, but I had never felt stillness only the edge of fear and anxiety. I had always wanted it, but never realized I had not experienced it until I went home one night after treatment and the peace washed through me. The turmoil and the uncontrollable fear that rocks my body when I relive the painful memories of being raped have consumed my life. This therapy is the only thing that has helped me find relaxation and a method to dispel the fear that has been entrenched in my body. The process is ongoing, but I feel for the first time that the trauma is behind me and my life is ahead of me. I can start over and I can be who I want to be. I am no longer that child no one cared for, I am me, and I am loved and well cared for. Craniosacral therapy mixed with somatic trauma resolution has reshaped my life and framed it with peace.
Young Mother with Hashimoto's Disease
I was told Craniosacral Therapy might help my thyroid issues. I didn’t want to have my thryoid removed and be on medications for the rest of my life. Christianna interviewed me for the first time and asked me about my childhood. No doctor had ever inquired. She explained how my childhood may be contributing to my endocrine-related health issues. I was adopted when I was three. My parents were drug addicts and I was malnourished. During treatment we talked and I experienced my body. We talked about my parenting, my experiences growing up, and my current relationships. After seeing Christianna for six months, I got my blood work done with my endocrinologist and my thyroid levels had stabilized. I never knew how powerful this healing modality could be. I receive routine maintenance treatment just to give myself the support my body deserves.
