Christina FogleTrauma Therapist
Christina Fogle is the Trauma Therapist working to bring the TTT programming to Tustin, Feltonville, and Mallery Recreation Centers. She provides therapy to eligible individuals, leads community and staff workshops, and educates the communities about the TTT programming. Christina has been with CFAR for 2 years, and we are so excited to see how she utilizes her passion and expertise in the TTT program. Christina grew up in a home that supported mental health, and she was drawn to therapy due to her nature of wanting to help others. She strives to be the type of therapist that children can connect with, particularly those in the BIPOC community. From her experience growing up where there were very limited BIPOC therapists, she is happy to be able to show children that there are people that look like them to help them on their mental health journey. She was particularly drawn to the Together Through Trauma program, as she grew up in Wynnefield and attended Overbrook High School, and she hopes to help her childhood communities heal from the trauma of gun violence. In her free time, Christina enjoys travel, pilates, yoga, and meditation.

Her goal is to learn and grow in somatic psychology to connect individuals to themselves [physically, mentally, and spiritually], their culture, and their community/support systems. Kacei’s approach is to use use a balance of evidence-based practices, her own experiences, and the client’s experiences. In her Camp Therapist role in CFAR’s Together Through Trauma program, Kacei excels at creating a safe space for children to be themselves and learn how to process trauma and their emotions. Through the camp workshops, she challenges the children to want more from and for their community/families, but most importantly it shows them that they are capable ofchange.
