Approach to care
My approach to care is simple. I listen to my patients/clients and try to meet them where they are. There is no sense in diving in the deep end if you've never even dipped your toe in the water. We all have to start somewhere, big or small, but I prefer small. I prefer building on these small goals, which eventually become successes that we can continue to build on. I believe that to be truly successful, we must create a strong foundation to build on. That way, if our blocks start to tumble, we know we have our foundation to stabilize us.
As a practitioner, I prefer to look at the whole picture. Sometimes we may not even realize the connection these pieces may provide to our puzzle.
What to expect in your first session with Kristina?
Our first session can be a lot! This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better and ensure that we are a good fit (spoiler: I know we will be!). We will review a lot of general health information as well as goals and expectations. My goal is to not only ensure your success by providing support, tools, and resources, but to also make sure you feel comfortable sharing any questions or concerns with me - that is the only way I can truly support you. First impressions can make or break an experience, right?
