LCSW Christina Tosto

Introduction

Whether you are struggling in a current relationship or healing from difficult experiences in the past, I believe that our interactions with others inform how we view ourselves and how we function in the world. My approach is strongly relational. I believe healing is found in a meaningful therapeutic relationship and by examining relational patterns that exist in all of our lives. I work with individuals to move beyond survival to embrace truly fulfilling lives. ​My specialty is treating adults who are struggling with trauma (Complex PTSD and Dissociative Disorders), relationship challenges, low self-esteem, eating disorders, and self-harmful behaviors. I am an open-minded, non-judgmental, collaborative therapist that believes in meeting people where they are and finding the strengths inside each of us. I have experience with and strive to create a safe, inclusive environment for those who are LGBTQ+. I am a sex-positive and kink-friendly provider who is open to all relationship structures, including non-monogamous and polyamorous.
