Christina Ferrara, LMSW
Christina Ferrara received her graduate degree in Social Work from the College of Staten Island in 2020.
Vipassana meditation retreats, studies in spirituality, and yoga trainings led her to become a yoga and meditation teacher embarking on her own therapy journey. Through these practices, Christina has overcome many obstacles that once felt out of reach and overpowering to her. She believes healing is a dynamic journey, not a linear one. Being equipped with the proper tools helps us to flow more easefully throughout life, navigating the ups and downs with acceptance.
Christina stays up to date with evidenced based research and literature to inform her work with clients. During her graduate studies, she developed a yoga and mindfulness program for students with emotional and behavioral needs at an intermediate school in Brooklyn, New York. When working with children, Christina’s main goal is to make the process of healing enjoyable. Christina also has a growing passion for supporting new parents. Her experience as a parent and her studies of attachment theory informs her work with caregivers.
Christina views her clients holistically and brings to therapy the modalities which have helped in her own journey. She uses meditation, mindfulness, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Somatic Therapy. Christina’s approach is built upon trust and is person-centered, non-judgmental, and empowering.
Christina lives in Staten Island, New York, with her partner and their one-year-old daughter.
Christina’s definition of happiness is having nowhere to be and nothing to do with a good cup of coffee and book.
