Christina is a Strozzi Institute Certified Somatic Coach with a BA in Psychology from the University of Arizona and graduate studies in Counseling, International Peace and Conflict Resolution, and Latin American Studies. Her extensive non-profit work in Domestic Violence, Children's Mental Health and International Issues (including immigration and environmental preservation) influenced and motivated Sereno's mission and practices.
"I tasked myself at a young age to find solutions to both practical and psychological problems. Growing up in a bicultural environment made me a witness and active participant in many complex personal crises and for which I found myself learning to adapt quickly to different personalities and expectations.
I am a strong believer in the importance of counseling and the mental health system, but I have observed repeatedly that very few people seek help when they really need it - mostly because it became “one more thing” that the person would have to make time for when everything seemed to be falling apart. My determination to close this gap and give people a chance to move forward is one of the many reasons I decided to start Sereno Relief Services."
