WELCOME,

I’M CHRISTINA

And I help smart, capable, spiritually-open women finally shift the patterns that keep them from holding their boundaries, trusting themselves, and aligning their lives with their hearts.

ONCE UPON A TIME,

I was a VP, power-walking through airports in my high heels, flying first class (on frequent flyer miles of course), and coming home to the white picket fence, my husband, incredible children, the dog… 

I had all of the outer markers of “success.” And I’d worked hard for them. But what drove me to work so hard was a hollowed out feeling of not enoughness, a craving for approval, a primal need to be liked, loved, needed. I had no boundaries. I honestly had no idea what I *needed*, and my wants? 

They came dead last.

BECAUSE, ONE UPON A MUCH EARLIER TIME…

I had far too much responsibility placed on my shoulders as a child and I didn’t know how to do any of it — how to be the grownup, how to feel safe, how to feel loved, how to be enough.

So I got the highest grades, worked hard for promotions, put everyone’s needs before my own, and tried to earn the love and approval that would make me feel safe.

THIS CULTURE REWARDS THOSE

TRAUMA DRIVEN BEHAVIORS 

But eventually my body gave out – in the form of autoimmune diseases.

My 23-year marriage sadly ended.

Anxiety became a daily struggle.

The way I had been living was unsustainable, and I knew it. But those patterns were so ingrained.

In 2015 I decided to do the hard, deep inner work of facing my childhood trauma with hypnotherapy, EMDR and spiritual healing (I’d tried everything else – I’ve been studying self-development and spirituality for more than 30 years!). 

But this combination was powerful.

It helped me change the stories I’d been telling myself for my whole life and meet my frightened inner child with compassion. 

I not only had to heal, I had to forgive myself (and others) so I could truly love myself. I also had to decide that from now on, I was going to be different. I had to decide that I was willing *and* ready to free myself from the beliefs and patterns of a lifetime.

Self-love (and self-compassion) are vital for change. When you have self-love, you have a greater capacity to try new things and not be perfect. You cannot change if you are afraid of failing.

Through consciously cultivating self-love, I began to know, deep in my bones,  that I was enough. That doing my best and making mistakes isn’t failing – it’s growing, learning and evolving. That imperfection is not only good enough, it’s part of the process.

I learned how to identify my needs, and feel that they are valid and necessary to tend to.

AND I BECAME A BOUNDARIES QUEEN!

Once the self-love was there, the capacity to tolerate things that weren’t healthy, that weren’t meeting my needs, evaporated. Boundaries became easy. At the same time, I found I had more love and empathy for other people, and more capacity to help them. I felt at peace, and free.

CONNECTION TO SELF & SPIRIT

Once I had the confidence, and self-love to create and hold my boundaries, I was able to make big changes in my relationships and my career. I literally changed every single part of my life.

I left my 30-year corporate career to follow my life’s purpose – doing this work, with you.

I mastered the modalities that helped me free myself from my own programs that kept me stuck for so long, becoming a Rapid Transformational Therapist®, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Empowerment Coach, Medical Intuitive Therapist, Reiki Master, and Advanced ThetaHealer®.

And I created a life that fits *me*. My     priorities, my goals, my passions,       my purpose.

This is what it looks like to be enough. This is what it feels like to be free.

Today I help women find their own freedom – freedom to love themselves, to love other people, to hold boundaries, to trust their intuition and follow their paths into lives they love. 

One of the first questions I’ll ask you is “what do you want to be free from?” And that’s where we start.

“I was experiencing PTSD and anxiety and wasn’t sure how to maneuver all that I was feeling.  From the first meeting, I knew Christina was what I was looking for, and through gentle yet profound sessions, I was able to realize what was surfacing, heal on another level, and come back into balance and back home to myself.”
