About me

I'm Cristina Barcelo and I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. After I graduated from my Bachelor in Psychology I decided to move to Miami, FL and became a Marriage and Family Therapist. Since my adolescence I was highly interested in human behaviors, dealing with emotions, dream interpretations, and meditation. While working on my internship I was trained as a Trauma Incident Reduction Facilitator and exposed to several holistic methods such as sound bowls, reiki, and breathwork, among others, which helped to expand my holistic knowledge.

Currently, I am a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern, certified Trauma Incident Reduction Facilitator, and a certified Reiki Master/Teacher.  As part of my experience in working with individuals and families, my clients have presented issues such as domestic violence, substance abuse, anxieties, PTSD, depression, loss, among others. I also facilitate workshops on topics such as: How to deal with anxiety, How to break away from an abuser, Self-care techniques, Mindfulness skills, Sound healing, and more.

In 2013, I received training to facilitate Breathwork sessions and sound bowls and began to host Healing Circles by combining these two practices. Two years later, I began my own Reiki journey where I gave and receive Reiki sessions. Incorporating the Reiki practice had such a positive effect on my clients and on myself, that I started to facilitate Reiki individually and group settings. By 2016 I became a Reiki Master/Teacher and began to teach the three levels of Reiki to help others get in tune with their inner healer.

For over seven years I have been devoted to helping individuals and families with their healing journeys. By combining therapeutic sessions and the practice of mindfulness techniques, my clients have been able to overcome their hardships and improved their lives. My intention is to guide you through your healing journey so you can find your zen.

I offer services in Tampa Bay and distance sessions are also available. Sessions can be in English or Spanish (or both).

New year, new vibes!

The beginning of a new year is a great way to start fresh and tackle new life goals!

By Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer
Every year we set new resolutions but we seem to have difficulties completing them. Moreover, we feel incomplete or disappointed in ourselves for not reaching our expectations. Begin the year with new vibes by changing the complicated resolutions to three simple practices. It consists on taking each day as it comes, write daily to-do lists, and practice positive thinking. Combing these steps will help you to reduce anxieties of future stuff that might or might not happen, organize your life, and maintain a positive spirit at all times.
Having bills, engagements, and daily issues to deal with may put us in a place where we overanalyze or over-worry about situations. The more we worry, the more drained we may feel. Additionally, it makes us more vulnerable to negative energy to enter our path. We can reduce the chances of getting anxious for future stuff by remaining as p…

Improve your mood by feeding your soul

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

Our mood is constantly guided by our mental and emotional wellbeing. If we feel stressed, sad, anxious, or worried chances are that it will be affected. Not only does our mental/emotional aspect of the body may be impacted but also our physical body may feel the weight of our mood. For example, when we feel down or sad, many times we get physically tired or fatigued. It is also influenced by the environment we live in. If you live in constant tension and never release it you might be in a constant "bad" mood. Lastly, but not limited to, our mood may get triggered negatively whenever a stressful unresolved event happens to us. Whenever a bad memory gets triggered, or when we remember a piece or the entire stressful event our mood tends to merge its state from how we felt then with how we feel now. 
There are people who are able to have a better grasp of their mood, such as, being able to stay content no matter how many obstacles were encounter…

What is a Reiki Healing Circle?

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

A Reiki Healing Circle is a gathering of people, preferably in the shape of a circle with the intention of healing. The circle represents life’s continuation, with no beginning and no end. Each healing circle is uniquely created based upon the intentions and goals of the group. When you participate in a Reiki Healing Circle you receive universal energy to help release energetic blockages caused by stress and traumas and to bring balance to your body. By participating in this practice as a group, the energetic force tends to be more powerful as bigger amounts of energy are being released and transformed into love and light. 

What to expect? When you go to a circle you may be required to sit or lay on the floor so it is always good to be dressed comfortably. They usually last from one hour to one hour and a half if there is a big group. Many times the practitioner utilizes different meditation styles to help induce clients into a meditative state which ai…
