Cristina Ruscica 

Breathe Wide open 


Cristina is a graduate from the University of Windsor, Ontario, obtaining a General Arts Degree, with her major in Psychology. She has been employed as a front line worker in her home community of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, since 1997, with children’s mental health and primarily within the child welfare sector. Cristina has committed these years of service to help strengthen children and families who have experienced family trauma and crisis.


In addition to her work within the Social Service field, Cristina has also gained first-hand experience of childhood trauma, and the trajectories of life that follow unhealed parts within ourselves. Through her own life circumstances and a deeper awareness to harboured subtle resentments, she awakened to some of life’s deeper lessons and realizations that have not only been applied to her work, but also to the writing of Breathe Wide Open. She has uncovered a way to use her own story, to support others on their path of inner healing. Cristina provides ongoing workshops that highlight some of the most valuable and effective insights gained through her writings.
