Who would you be if you had a growth partner dedicated to your happiness and success?

Someone who challenges you to think differently and reflect professionally and personally in ways that have you excited, connecting with your authentic power, and rewriting the rules to work for you? 

There is a direct connection between who we are (within) and the level of success and satisfaction we experience and achieve. To thrive as a person, leader, or entrepreneur, it requires being in alignment with our true selves so we can follow our instincts to become all we are meant to be.

This is why transformational coaching -- the nexus between our personal and professional lives -- is an incredibly powerful process for executives, managers and anyone looking to stretch into their future.  Transformational coaching focuses on: mindsets, goals, careers and wellbeing. 

If you seek to:​

  • Create a powerful presence that builds trust in others, attracts opportunity and has you standing out for all the right reasons

  • Make change work in your favor -- especially if you are tired of always surviving and want to start experiencing what it feels like to thrive 

  • Desire showing up more authentically at work and home, especially stepping into leadership roles 

  • Improve how you make decisions and follow your instincts more

  • Understand how you are different from your ego, which may be creating blindspots holding you back

  • Explore 'what's next' in your life or career 

  • Build your confidence to take on new challenges and greater responsibilities

  • Evolve in how you respond to and work with difficult people 

  • Process failure so you learn and can move on ...fast

  • Put your best foot forward - even lean into fear - and come out on top

...then this type of coaching is for you.

No one reaches new levels of success (or grows on their own) so why should you?  With the help of a strategic partner, you can discern the unknown together and create more of what you want. 





Working with professionals at all levels to live their best lives yet

Christine is a very effective coach and was able to draw out new insights. As a result of [our] coaching partnership, I had the chance to rethink my approach to leadership challenges, as well as challenging work experiences. She has a calm demeanor, allowed space to reflect and asks powerful questions that stirred reflection. She is supportive and encouraging. I enjoyed working with her and will enjoy working with her again.

One of Christine's greatest gifts is that she reminds me of the courage I have within. As an entrepreneur who is constantly reinventing herself, having Christine help me see beyond the self-inflicted limitations is everything. When I'm stuck in the unknown or frustrated by a situation, Christine nudges me to look in a direction that I normally don't. In fact, her style - a mix of compassion and edginess - empowers me to see myself (and situations) in new ways. Possibilities always open up as a result of our conversations. Part of this is because Christine brings a lot of life experiences to the table and has an ability to listen deeply, making her a 'must have' on my personal board. If you're serious about  honing your growing edge, look no further. Get her while you can!

Being an executive in a Fortune 50 company came with professional success, but I found myself asking "what's next"? I am grateful to have met Christine when I did. Working with her allowed me to explore options I may not have considered and gave me the confidence to move forward in a new direction. She has a kind, but direct approach that is refreshing. She knows her stuff because she's been there and it's reassuring to know I have a true partner in this journey.

Letting go is hard for us founders, especially as we scale our companies. Christine helped me to see into blindspots I didn't consider so I could make more strategic decisions. With her strategy background in business her observations often gave me much to think about ...for days... always resulting in clarity about the choices I needed to make next. Available by email, text and phone, our arrangement worked for what I needed to stay true to my vision. A strategic investment having such a savvy sounding board on my side.

CEO (DC Metro Area)

I couldn't have done the last decade without Christine’s coaching support. Together, we’ve worked through challenging bosses, job changes, applications to prestigious programs, prepared for major talks and prepared my thinking going into difficult conversations. Most walk around the block when they need to reset, but I've got Christine on speed dial. I always come back from our conversations feeling balanced yet empowered to move forward strategically. Our conversations challenge me to think beyond my ego’s initial reactions so our time is a strategic investment in myself and my career. Her knowledge of power dynamics has been invaluable.

IBM leader (VA)

Heard. Seen. Empowered. Connected. Liberated. Inspired and on fire. Ready to take on my world. Possibilities abound ... I could on and on and on about the benefits of coaching with Christine. She is truly some kind of wonderful!

Rebecca, actor + trauma expert (NYC)

What I appreciate most about Christine is her sincerity and follow through in helping me step into my career. She does a great job at connecting the right people in order to build professional relationships and expand the knowledge of young professionals. Her motivational words and insights have assisted me in my journey after graduation and my career in our nation’s capital. I cannot thank her enough for her guidance and validation.

Cathy, young professional, Sensis Agency (DC)

My coaching sessions with Christine have been a catalyst for real change in my life.  Christine's coaching style is friendly and warm; working with her sometimes feels like talking a wise friend who has seen the world and experienced more than just one lifetime.  At the same time, she has uncanny intuition and insight, often calling out what she sees to encourage a deeper look at old stories that are standing in the way of forward progress.  Our sessions allow me to re-connect with my inner resources, enabling me to step into my work and my life with increased clarity and confidence. Her guidance and perception have also guided me toward greater focus and definition of my deepest intentions while supporting me fully as I move toward them.  If you are ready for change and want to expand your perspective about what's possible in life, I wholeheartedly recommend Christine.

Max, solopreneur + Federal Government consultant (VA)

Time invested in being listened to is so helpful in building self-awareness and confidence in which actions are a genuine priority. Working with Christine helped me letting go of 'shoulds' that overly pressure and really don't fulfill me.

Christine is insightful and warm, and listens with insight and an ability to reflect back what seemed most salient. I felt we had a strong rapport with honest, open communication. Having her as an outside witness offered me a perspective that was freeing and allowed me to boldly name concerns with less concern about how I am perceived. I was able to see my situation in new ways, which has allowed me to take steps [forward] sooner than if I had stalled in my isolated rumination. 

I am now more at ease with the unfolding of things that cannot be known or controlled; aware of my inner and outer resources with less fear; more clear about a broader set of dynamics and values at play as I discern [next steps]; and validated that honoring joy and contentment is a reasonable way forward.
