Cristina Nedelcu, PhD, MD, LISW-S


Cristina is a licensed clinical social worker with over 30 years of experience in the field. Over the years, she served in various roles: practitioner, educator, researcher and published author.

Cristina earned her PhD in Social Welfare from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in 2019. She has a MSSA from CWRU/Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) (2002) and a MD degree from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Carol Davila” in Bucharest, Romania (1991).

Cristina’s areas of expertise are developmental outcomes of domestic and international adoptees, self-harm and other self-destructive behaviors in late adolescence and young adulthood, struggles related to developmental transitions of families and individual clients, stresses of acculturation and environmental adaptation for immigrant families. She is a first generation immigrant from Romania and is fluent in 3 languages: Romanian, English and French.

Cristina believes that all clients and all families have strengths. By uncovering these strengths early in the process, she expands on possibilities for intervention. Cristina knows that seasoned clinicians do not fight the waves of life, just like experienced surfers choose to go with the waves instead of fighting them. Many times, the clients who are the experts of their own lives, simply need to learn how to not stand in their own ways. When she successfully mobilizes her clients’ strengths, the end result is a stronger family, a stronger community and weaker presenting problems.

Cristina uses a unique therapeutic approach that includes a variety of techniques from attachment therapy, solution focused brief therapy, narrative therapy, family systems and mindfulness. She uses humor, playfulness and creativity in her sessions, is honored to partner with families in reaching successful outcomes for all involved and believes in treating all clients, including the youngest ones with the dignity, respect and the unconditional positive regard that they deserve.
