Loss is an universal experience that everyone is bound to face at various point in our lives (the loss of a loved one, one's health, a job, a home). When confronted with a significant loss, expressive therapy is an effective means to help people explore and express feelings associated with mourning, to revisit the relationship with the departed, to give shape to our memories, and to find hope.

Cristina's approach to trauma is a step-by-step process, which goes from finding a safe ground, to rebuilding confidence, integrating the trauma in the personal history and replanning a fruitful future.
