Kristina has a deep passion that all beings may remember and reconnect to their inner wisdom and inner guidance for healing and transformation. She has been dedicated to the contemplative and consciousness modalities in practice and study for over 25 years.

In addition to her work as a Depth Hypnosis Practitioner and Coming to Peace Facilitator, Kristina holds degrees in Psychology and Women’s Studies, certifications and advanced trainings in Integrative Massage Therapy, SmartFLOW® Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation, and academic study at the graduate level in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University, a Tibetan Buddhist school in Boulder, Colorado. She has worked in a domestic violence shelter, taught and led thousands of hours in classes, workshops and trainings in yoga, breathwork, meditation and integrative energy healing, and spearheaded several non-profit fundraising campaigns and benefits. Her continued education and study in sound healing, energy medicine, plant medicine therapy, somatic experiencing, and the effects of trauma on the brain and body led her onto a path with Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D and the Foundation of the Sacred Stream. This work has been paramount in Kristina’s personal life as a mother, and in her professional practice.

Kristina integrates her studies in Buddhist philosophy, yoga, mindfulness, trauma informed education and therapies, Nature, and psychology to inform her work. She works with a wide range of issues clients present, and curates a compassionate curiosity and collaborative space for her clients. She helps people connect, discover and reclaim their own personal power, understand and unravel harmful patterns, and access their own innate abilities of healing to live more freely in the world and in their relationships.
