Meet Christine

Beautiful Seeker of Joy,

If there are a lot of good things in your life, and yet you still don’t feel an abundance of joy, if life has turned into a never ending to-do list, if you sometimes don’t like or recognize the person you’ve become, if it feels like it takes too much energy to stay positive, you are in the right place. Or maybe you hide your joy to try to make others more comfortable, quiet it to avoid being judged, self-sabotage to keep a lid on your joy, or feel guilty because of all the pain in the world.  If that’s the case, I am here to give you complete permission to shine your joy brightly, for the greater good of all. Or maybe you simply want to feel more overflowing joy that isn’t dependent on what’s happening outside of you. Whatever the reason, I’m thrilled you’re here — WELCOME!

Infinite Love and Gratitude,

“I love working with Christine – both professionally and personally. She is a one-of-a-kind ray of light in the world and I encourage anyone in search of positive energy, personal growth, or simply guidance to connect with her. I went to her originally in need of resources, but I liked her so much I came back for more! In fact, I like her so much I gift sessions with her to my friends!”

My Favorite Treasure Hunt

We are never truly more significant by making anyone else less significant.

Our true significance comes from helping others to see theirs!

Imagine what we could do together if we helped everyone we encounter to see their unique and genuine value, gifts, strengths, and beauty! That’s the world I am committed to help create!

My favorite treasure hunt (and you are welcome to join me on it!) is the one that involves finding all of the treasures inside of everyone I meet. I’m pointing at you here because I know there are lots inside of YOU!

Rather Than Just Fix What’s Wrong, Build What’s Strong

So grateful for the monthly Buffalo Sisters Gift Circle that has been gathering at our home for 8+ years, for heart-centered connections, for spaces to come together to encourage, nurture, uplift, support, understand, and inspire one another, for opportunities to feel the incredible strength that comes from togetherness, for cultivating connection, for places to drop in and really see and hear one another, for the healing that is possible in safe and loving spaces, and for shared intentions to focus our energy on recognizing, appreciating, and growing the unique gifts within us all — for the greater good of all! <3 Last night’s circle also included all sorts of confetti I brought back from Peru that is traditionally used to make sacred offerings to Pachamama (Mother Earth) in celebration of the gift of life. When we travelled there last month, so many streets were lined with this sacred confetti and, when women left here last night, so were all of us, and so was our homesweethome! 😉 In Positive Psychology, research shows that the greatest changes happen when we don’t simply focus on fixing what’s WRONG but, instead, make sure we also spend an abundance of time and energy on growing what’s STRONG. We all offered up this confetti last night in recognition of those beautiful aspects of ourselves and our world we want to keep growing! I also intentionally handed out star stickers to everyone last night. It might seem silly (though I am all for the vital importance…

What Your Fear is Really Telling You

Fear is such an amazing part of our lives! 🙂 Here are some of the many things I love continually exploring and re-exploring in my own life and with my wonderful clients when it specifically comes to those personal fears in our hearts and minds that hold us back in any area of our lives: – Fears are so often (and so easily!) mistaken for red lights when, instead, they are usually GREEN lights showing us exactly where to go and GROW. – When we turn to face our fears and lean into them, they often disappear and, before we know it, become an area of ease within our newly expanded comfort zone (just think of the things that used to seem scary that are easy peasy now!). – Oftentimes, doing the very thing that scares us is the most powerful (and perhaps the only) way to truly transform the fear. – If we don’t face our fears… (1) they typically don’t go away on their own, (2) they can become paralyzing, (3) we become stuck in life, (4) they can leak out all over the place in other areas, (5) our world shrinks to fit the confines of our fears, (6) we clog our “spiritual pipes,” our intuition, and our calling, (7) and we disconnect from our true selves and what we came here to give, experience, receive, and SHINE! – If we aren’t experiencing some of these kinds of fears semi-regularly, it probably means we are staying a…
