I found myself sitting across from Dr Jinnie thinking I knew exactly why I was there, shockingly, I was wrong. Talking to Dr Jinnie was like asking the person where the hidden closet was that made the blue prints. She was able to confidently and gently guide me to realize where I really needed to focus my attention, and then actually do just that. Dr Jinnie is one of the most compassionate people on the planet and it truly shows through the care and respect she has for her patients.

Dr. Cristerna is the best therapist I have ever used. Her methods and style allow you to identify gaps and find resolutions to concerns in an enlightening way. Her ability to connect on a personal level and provide a safe space to express concerns is top notch. She destroys the myths and negative stigmas that comes with seeking counseling. No matter the problem/situation, I strongly urge you to give her try. it will be life changing!

It truly was an honor and a pleasure to work with Dr. Jinnie through my Yhandi experience. Every session was informative, detailed, honest, enjoyable and ultimately, worth while. It took me a few sessions to really buy into everything Yhandi was offering but once I plunged into it head first, I couldn't be happier with the result. She helped me look at myself in a way I never thought was possible and I couldn't be more grateful. I would 100% work with her again and hope to someday do so!

Jinnie has been and continues to be an intricate part of my growth and development. From our first session, over 14 years ago, she has shown exceptional professionalism, skill, knowledge, empowerment and compassion. All of those characteristics working together caused me to look at my life and my purpose in this life. I decided that I wanted to offer that same kind of support to others on their journey to growth. Jinnie is without a doubt highly qualified and highly recommended!

I started off a skeptical partner coming into my wife and my couples sessions with Jinnie, but I am now forever grateful to have met her. Jinnie's expertise and compassion was the perfect formula for my wife and I to learn how to understand each other, but more importantly, how to understand ourselves. Meeting Jinnie has truly been a turning point for our lives. I will continue to use the tools she has taught us for the rest of my life.

I sought out Jinnie’s services to help me with anxiety while trading. I took Jinnie’s RoHun and Yhandi therapy sessions. After completing the sessions, I felt less anxiety and greater ease while trading. The skills gained during the sessions have transferred to other areas of my life and meditation is now a daily practice. Jinnie is exceptionally professional. I highly recommend Jinnie for anyone looking to remove internal obstacles.

I had such a warm, enlightening journey with Jinnie. She is a most considerate listener and her focus was always on me, with me . Jinnie reflects back on what she hears with uncanny accuracy. Her thought provoking feedback was a validation of me in the moment I most needed it. She is easy to be with, easy to trust, easy to love.

I met Dr. Jinnie during a workshop w/ the inner-city young men [gang members], Dr. Jinnie walked the young men through childhood traumas to heal emotional wounds. Within 2 hours – Dr. Jinnie led the young men through life-changing meditations to help center their aggressive energy. Later, she guided me through a past life regression. Even though I’ve had 3 past life regression, my session with Dr. Jinnie was by far the most complete & thought-provoking.& healing. I learned so much about myself.
