Cristiana is passionate about what she does. Guiding people and holding their hand through their healing journey is fulfilling her life purpose. Trauma is not only something that she holds space for, each day during her consultations, but also something she experienced since very early childhood. Early on, on her path to being trained as a therapist, Cristiana understood that trauma does not live in the brain, but in the body. She understood that the body does keep the score. That bottom-up modalities are the ones to be intertwined with cognitive modalities. Creating a holding space of safety, compassionate listening and respectful rhythm are one of the most important aspects that guide her practice.
Cristiana uses, depending on each case client, an integrated work that touches on different layers and nuances. Some of these modalities being based on: nervous system regulation, emotional regulation, attachment trauma resolution, internal family systems psychotherapy. She continues to specialize in the trauma field, participating at trauma focused trainings or as a trainer assistant for the IFS Institute.
She runs her private practice in her office in Paris, France since 2019, working mainly with adults who have experienced childhood trauma. She also does online consultations in French and Romanian.
