CRISTINA URTON, LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I am a first-generation Asian-American who spent most of my childhood in the southwestern United States. While in college at St. Mary’s in San Antonio, I found myself volunteering with local organizations that advocate for underserved populations. Mentoring a young second grader that the school identified as “at-risk” and providing health education to teenage moms in San Antonio humbled and inspired me and led me to realize that my true passion lies in working with, and advocating for, those who are still finding their voice.
After St. Mary’s, I decided to attend graduate school at Boston College, where I received my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. Since then, I've worked with clients of all ages with various mental health related issues in clinical settings including community mental health, college counseling, in-home therapy, and school-based counseling. I am particularly interested in helping adults cope with anxiety, adjustment issues, depression, and trauma. I specialize in acculturation/cultural issues, intergenerational trauma, and stress management.
Outside of my work, I enjoy baking, yoga, short hikes, and spending time with my loved ones. I am also a recent cat mom and am loving every minute of it.
