Cristina Campos-Krumholz, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou. 

Cristina is passionate about empowering children and teens to move through life’s most challenging situations and come out living their best life. Often misunderstood and not given the voice make known their needs, children and adolescents can face many difficult, unique challenges. They deserve someone who will fight with them and empower them to grow and heal. Cristina’s goal is to do just that.

When the whole world is telling you who you should be and what you should do, Cristina wants to be an empathetic hand that can give a gentle nudge in the right direction. Her job is never to tell you what to do, but to help you discover that answer for yourself.

With children who may not have the understanding about themselves or the world around them to make viable decisions, Cristina is passionate about putting the seemingly magical workings of the world into their own terms. Children and adolescents have much better understanding than many of us think, they just need an outlet to express it. Cristian works to be that outlet and help them grow and heal

As a parent, Cristina understands that seeing our children struggle is one of the hardest parts of parenting. As a counselor, she knows that sometimes, even the best intentions and utmost love aren’t enough to reach the needs of your child.

Cristina has twenty-four years of diverse experience in counseling working with youth at all levels from pre-school to college. She has special experience working with military families at a school. It has given her the opportunity to understand the impact of deployment and reintegration on the child and the best way to reach such children

Her clients have come to her for a wide range of reasons. Because every situation and every person are unique, she uses an integrated approach and meets her clients where they’re at. Your life outside a counseling session is vital to the healing and growth process. It matters and should be integrated into the counseling techniques used.

Cristina has experience with Cognitive Behavior Therapy, mindfulness, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, and Brief Counseling.

Jaelyn Aragon

Jaelyn Aragon, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

“Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that the better for us all.”  — Erik Erikson

Jaelyn Aragon is a Resident in Counseling (RIC) who specializes in working with children, teens, and adults who are struggling to cope with issues related to alcohol use, addiction, depression, anxiety, undeveloped coping skills, chronic illness, family conflict, trauma, PTSD, sexual or physical abuse, parenting difficulties, and much more.

Jaelyn works from a person-centered approach that borrows strategies from narrative therapy and insights from an existential lens. She knows that the client is an expert on themselves, but may need guidance from a counselor to help navigate the trials and tribulations of life. Jaelyn’s journey into counseling began with her work at Safe Passage Children’s Advocacy Center, where she volunteered for over two years. The experience taught her the value of meeting a client at whatever place or mindset they are in, and she learned how to respond to a range of emotional situations while being an advocate for the client’s best interest.

Jaelyn knows that everyone carries experiences that help to shape who they are. She is devoted to helping people process those experiences. Jaelyn is also passionate about integrating forms of writing and other artistic expressions into counseling.
