From Christine

Nice to meet you here. Referred by a friend, or ended up on your own? Here’s what I can tell you— we’re going to get to the bottom of it, the top of it and everything in between when we consult together. My approach to your personalized wellness leaves no parts unearthed. We’re going to dive to the deepest parts driving your wellness—we’re going to go to the belief level to discover and manifest your highest self.

I will meet you where you are and endeavor to lead you where you want to go. This is personalized wellness. Ready to go there together?

My work in wellness is sometimes serious and often emotion-evoking work. I take the road less traveled with clients, I spend the time it really takes to help people heal and in doing so, together, we’ll break from patterns that no longer serve. When you are met with resistance from the conventional medical world for walking the path less traveled, I will step into your flow to empower and mobilize the changes you have comitted to. I am humbled to accompany others on their wellness journeys through life and endlessly driven to advocate for truth in wellness and personal soveriegnty.

Much love!
