Empowering you to rise
Make it Happen.
"I am a registered nurse who’s in the midst of a once-in-a-century pandemic, burnt out from working long days, short staffed, overratio, and with no hazard pay. I was lost in what I wanted to do for my future—do I go back to school to get my masters? Should I leave my staff job for travel nursing? Christina helped me realize that I need to go back to the basics of self-care in order to become the best version of myself. By holding me accountable for my water intake, practicing gratitude, stretching, exercising, deep breathing, meditation, and so much more, I was able to handle my everyday stressors both at work and at home. Not only was I energetic and grateful to go to work, I also became more confident in my skills as a nurse. This newfound confidence helped me land a dream job as a Cath Lab RN - a dream that I didn’t realize truly was my dream until Christina helped me realize it. All this happened just within the few sessions that I had with Christina. She was so easy to work with, I felt comfortable opening up to her. She listened to my needs, would redirect me and even help me deep breathe during sessions. I am so thankful that I went on this journey with her and I can only imagine what I can achieve when I continue to work with her in the future! I would highly recommend her coaching to anyone." -Beatrice Mendoza
“Christina is a fantastic coach! Prior to my sessions with her, I knew that I had too much on my plate and was struggling to prioritize my responsibilities and was experiencing burnout in several areas of my life. Through working with Christina, I gained the insight and tools to bring clarity and order that brought my responsibilities more in alignment with my personal goals and priorities. I highly recommend working with Christina to anyone who feels burnout, lack of direction in their career or life, or anyone who struggles with ensuring self-care is a top priority! You will not be disappointed!” -Andrea Law
"I was feeling overwhelmed due to being a mom and having to handle other issues at the same time. My anxiety and stress levels were at a new time high. Talking to Christina helped me find solutions to my anxiety/stress through meditation and breaking down my day to figure out where I could ask for help. She taught me how to meditate to take control of my own mind and self again, and find out where my husband could help take some of the load off. I’ve been following the plan and goals we wrote together, and handling my stress has been so much easier! Now that I started working, it’s helped tremendously since I added another responsibility to my plate. I truly recommend her to anyone who feels overwhelmed! Shes so easy to talk to, thorough and digs deep, to give you insight and awareness. She’s the best!!" -Jennifer, 29
"I am so thankful for Christina’s help as I navigated leaving a full time corporate job to working for myself. I was sick from anxiety and worry, but with her support I did it! And not only did I do it, I developed skills I would need to succeed in my business and grow into a better version of myself. I can’t wait to work with her again, and tell everyone I can about her. She is the coach I needed in my life to get me through this season and help me succeed at achieving my dreams!" - Hailey Allen, 36
"Before starting these sessions I had plans to achieve certain goals in my life but nothing was set in paper or put into action they were just thoughts. My husband and I were tired and overwhelmed with everything going on. We did not set time for ourselves or our relationship. I had put my health on the back burner and had gained a lot of unhealthy habits and a lot of weight. After completing these sessions I have been able to set realistic goals and actually work on implementing them. I have been able to have a work life balance! I have only worked extra at my per diem job and have not picked up at my full time job (even after they begged me lol). I have been able to help my girls by talking to them and spending time with them. Working with Christina was a breeze. She is very easy to work with and is very understanding. What I liked most about our coaching relationship is that she allowed me to speak and work through my own problems. She guided me and gave me ideas without telling me what to do. I really enjoyed bouncing ideas back and forth and she gave me a sense of empowerment over my life. I have been able to implement a sleeping schedule for my children so my husband and I have been able to have more time together. I have also started to eat healthier and implement stretching and drinking water into my daily routine. I was able to reach out to a therapist for my oldest child. I was also able to say no to work.
I have discovered to literally breathe. Just take a moment each day and dedicate it to breathing. I have learned to set goals and boundaries with my kids. After implementing sleeping times I feel like I am more in control of my life. I did not imagine how such a small change could impact my life. My husband and I have time to just unwind and enjoy time together. I have also been able to prioritize sleep and well being for me. I am forcing myself to drink water and stretch and hopefully soon I can start actual exercise. I recommend anyone in need of change or balance in their lives." Mayra M., 33
"When Christina shared with me that she was starting her nursing coach education, I was very excited for her! I have worked with her in the past and ever since I met her, I have only the highest accolades for her. She is very thorough, knowledgeable, and one of the most caring nurses that I have known! Her compassion carries through our coaching sessions as well. She helped me compartmentalize my anxiety by discussing ways to address it. We discussed the importance of developing a morning ritual in helping me focus on accomplishing the smaller tasks that would help me get closer to my goals. What I enjoy most from our session was how personable she is. Her coaching sessions were not strictly didactic. She would research methods to help me and she would take into careful consideration what would benefit and work for me by using a holistic approach. By our last coaching session, with Christina’s encouragement, I have set my date to take the NCLEX-PN. " -Lily, 34
"I recommend Christina for Health, Wellness, Life or Career Coaching. Christina saw me as a whole person, and accepted the challenge of helping me navigate through big life changes. Christina helped me prioritize and not address too many things at once. Her humility and servant heart equipped me to have hope. She continues to be my cheerleader and refers me to the best resources! Her email to me after each appointment summarized my progress and my plans so taking notes during sessions was optional. She tailored the style of communication to me and I am confident that meeting with Christina for coaching will be a worthwhile investment for you also. " ~ Annemarie D., 64
" My coaching session with Christina brought in a breath of fresh air and a change of mindset about mindfulness. The pandemic brought my many of my hobbies to a standstill and soon found myself lacking motivation to do things I originally showed interest in. Christina made a safe and comfortable space for both of us and in doing so, allowed me to go deep with my goals and goal blockers. Christina led me through piecing together a vision for my personal health and drew out a genuine ownership within me of accomplishing my goals. Christina’s knowledge and encouragement was crucial in helping me to cultivate a sustainable balance of healthy eating, exercise and sleep. Although short, my time with Christina has been the catalyst for a more positive self image and an overall improved quality of life and I would recommend her to anyone! " ~Will, 35
"I was working long hours at work, very busy feeling, I did not have enough time to get important stuff done. I felt I wasn’t getting enough me time and not enough time to focus on my health. These sessions helped me to prioritize my time, use it more efficiently, and find time for me and my health. I loved my experience working with you. You made me feel comfortable, if I didn’t meet a goal 100%, you helped me through it. You didn’t make me feel bad, just a different route on how to complete the task. Also you helped me with feeling relaxed during our sessions. I learned there is different ways to go about stressful stuff going on in life. The breathing techniques help." ~ Isabella H. , 33
"Christina is extremely calming, which for me is a huge bonus. I have a lot of energy and Christina was like a soothing, warm blanket. She did several EFT sessions with me that were amazing and very helpful and I will continue with EFT as I move forward as a Nurse Coach. I would absolutely recommend Christina for coaching. She was able to hold the space for me and never make it about her own agenda." ~Debra S.
"My experience working with you was amazing. I didn't know what to expect with nurse coaching, but every Friday after our sessions I felt more grounded and had a "hell yeah" attitude. I liked the most about our coaching relationship the fact that you were very easy to talk to and you had compassion for the things I would talk to you about. You were very motivating.
During our coaching I finally made it to a meeting after I hadn't gone in over 6 months. I went and got a gym membership. I completed my application for my dream job and after one of our sessions I actually got it done and sent it. I made it through the interview and am now in the hiring process. Instead of coasting through my days and thinking of my goals I am actually taking small steps to get where I want to be.
Some new insights I have learned are different ways of working through my fear and anxiety. Which is so important for me because those two things have held me back from growing and going forward. I've learned to not be so hard on myself. Also how to break a goal down so it is more achievable like breaking a goal into smaller steps puts me in the right direction.
I would recommend your coaching to others in recovery I think they would definitely benefit from working
with you." ~Sabrina A., 31
"Christina is an amazing nurse coach to work with. She helped me make goals and helped me achieve them in ways I did not know where possible. Christina made me feel that she truly cares for me, and she really does. She is so thoughtful. Her follow-up emails were intricate, and she laid out easy step by step plans to help me achieve my goals. She has been with me through thick and thin. Christina truly listens, and it shows! I really felt heard by her. Christina is also the resource queen! When I’m struggling with something, she knows just what resource to send to further help me in reaching my goals. I couldn’t recommend Christina more! If you ever have a chance to work with her, please do!! Christina is an amazing nurse coach!"
