Counseling Group Miami

Cristina Oliver, LMFT

I take great pride in helping my clients overcome their struggles by utilizing their strengths and providing them with the necessary tools to build the life they desire. As a LicensedĀ Marriage and Family Therapist, I treat issues such as emotion dysregulation, anxiety, depression, interpersonal conflicts, family conflicts, and eating disorders. I provide guidance, support, and compassion within a safe and nonjudgmental environment where you can feel comfortable communicating your concerns and expressing your feelings. My goal as your therapist is to help you take back control over your mind, your behaviors and in turn, your life. My therapeutic approach is primarily based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Family Systems.

As a foundationally trained DBT therapist part of Miami’s only intensively trained DBT team, I use mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills in my practice. These skills can help you gain control over emotionally-based reactions, reduce or eliminate dysfunctional coping behaviors, and enhance or maintain interpersonal relationships.

My practice also includes the use of breathing, visualization and exposure based practices to help you face and overcome obstacles or fears. Additionally, meal support is available to help break the cycle of dysfunctional eating patterns and behaviors.

I believe you are the true expert of your life and together we will gain a better understanding of the underlying issues that are getting in your way. Allow me to help you or a loved one by calling today. I am available Mondays through Fridays and speak English and Spanish.
