Kristina Cross, LMSW

Clinician - NY

My Why

My desire for my professional growth and career is to provide quality innovative evidence-based care to create lasting change while learning from the best in the field. Joining the team at Lumate gives me the opportunity to do just that. Adolescence is a dynamic and evolving age of significant growth and development, and overwhelming anxiety has the ability to hinder that. Lumate’s model presents the opportunity to rewrite that narrative and I am honored to be working with a committed group of purpose-driven professionals.

Kristina Cross is a Licensed Master Social Worker in New York with over 10 years of multifaceted experience in guiding individuals and communities as they navigated life’s difficulties to lead fulfilling lives. She earned her Master of Social Work degree from Stony Brook University in 2022, and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Social Work, minoring in Psychology from Syracuse University in 2014.

Kristina has gained diverse experience as a case manager, community educator, research assistant, and supervisor at community organizations. Prior to joining Lumate, Kristina cofacilitated an support group for adolescents with anxiety, worked with individuals and families experiencing a wide variety of mental health issues in a community mental health setting, and co-authored publications discussing strengths-based substance abuse and HIV prevention research for youth. These experiences inform her practice as a passionate mental health therapist committed to empowering youth and their families face anxiety utilizing evidence-based practices.
