Coaching, Teaching, and Speaking for helping Women and Femmes Recovering from Religion and Patriarchy Reclaim their Power and Confidence.

My work is to see you be free. Free to know yourself, to powerfully (and with love) say no, to feel at home within yourself, and to live a life that gives back to you. 

You care about people deeply, but you've put too much pressure on yourself to make sure everyone is okay.

If you are tired of people crossing your boundaries, feeling uncertainty around what you want or how to get there, or just tired of feeling responsible for how everyone ELSE is doing, 

You my love, are in the right place. 

It's time to reclaim your power and step into confidence.

No more apologizing for who you are, or what you want.

This space is for you to take up. 




Are you tired? Tired of fighting? 

I got to this point in my own journey where I had been shifting my faith, deconstructing my religious upbringing and relationships and I started to realize that even though I had left religion, my life was still revolving around religion. Before it had been all for religion and it became that I was against religion. 

I had sort of become addicted to this rage. 

Realizing how I had been harmed, seeing the nuance of that. 

I am not at all knocking my past self. I think I needed to do exactly what I did. 

But there came this point where I realized I did not want my life to be built around what I was against, rather I wanted my life to be built towards lifting up the solution, to be moving towards what I believed could be possible.

I wanted my life to be about being, enjoying, healing, deep loving, and building.

Don’t get me wrong, I %1000 believe in the dismantling if harmful systems and will continue to dismantle things in my own life, particularly racism, homophobia and patriarchy because it is in the air we breathe. 


I have built my life with a focus on equity, honoring capacity, service, joy, and compassion. I have defined my life by who I am and What I am for.

My desire is to help and give permission to those who are ready to move beyond just leaving and dismantling religion. Those who are asking “Now What?” “What do I want my life to mean? To be for? To be about?” 

There is no wrong answer.

If you feel stuck in identifying just what you are against, and are aching for more, longing for something richer and more fulfilling, I’d love for you to read more about coaching with me.

It just may be that you are ready to build your life around who you are now and what you are for.




"My experience with Christina was Thoughtful, eye opening and cleansing. 
When we first started working together I was at a job I hated. I was feeling out of alignment with myself, my career, and my romantic life.
Throughout our coaching series together I gained self-awareness and confidence which moved my romantic life into a space of trusting in myself and this affected my acting career as well! I quit the job I hated and am pursuing what I love. I realized only I know what I need, and I trust myself to know what that is."

Chrissie Watkins


"This experience was Magical and Sacred.

When we first met I was struggling with making large decisions for my future. I was spinning out over these decisions and unable to hear myself or even know what I wanted. I didn’t recognize my own voice anymore because I had spent years in service to others and what was best for them.

I had almost always belonged to someone else, but never myself.

After a few sessions my partner noticed I was spunkier, less timid, and more confident in my capabilities.

The biggest change I have witnessed in myself is recognizing the need for alone time, personal space, and rest. I have taken more naps, bubble baths, exercised, and spent more time doing what I like in the past few months than I have in years. 

I have set boundaries with people and it has caused large conflicts that would have made me so upset that I gave up historically, but I've been riding the feelings waves and moving through them to process them, plus recognizing that sometimes they will pop up out of nowhere and that's indicating my need to stop and listen.

I’ve opened up with my partner and friends and have found more support there than I thought was possible. "

"When we first connected, I was at odds with myself in a variety of ways. One of the biggest pain points for me was finding out what I wanted to do with my life. Knowing a little bit of Christina’s life journey and how similar it was to mine allowed me to feel comfortable enough to share my hopes and dreams. She made me feel safe enough so that I could share anything with her.
The biggest change that I witnessed in myself is that I am using my voice in ways that I never thought I could. I was always nervous and scared and kept a lot of my emotions inside. I felt that coaching allowed me to realize that was something I was doing and create the steps to help change that in my life. 
I'm more confident now, I speak out more. I advocate for myself and I take steps towards changing situations if they don’t feel right for me. I was able to take ownership of my actions and dreams and actively work towards them.
Christina is an incredible person. Her energy and her intuition really helped me make a difference in my life. I would recommend her to be anyone's coach.  With her wide range of life experiences, she is able to connect with her clients in a very unique way. She is a true gem- a diamond of the first water."

Samira Ali


"My experience with Christina was Transformative, Affirming, & Encouraging.

When I first started coaching I was feeling really small. I felt overwhelmed with my role as a mother and disconnected from myself. I really wanted to feel more like myself and be okay with taking up space in the world. 

I was in a really hard parenting place and was dealing with a lot of anger, sadness, and guilt. Through coaching I was able to accept myself and however I was feeling—and that it was all valid.

I felt comfortable being honest and open with Christina, and she really held space for me, even though I don’t typically feel comfortable being emotional in front of people.

The biggest change I’ve witnessed in myself is that I feel like me again!

I even decided to start my own business and it felt like a puzzle piece that I’ve been missing for so long. 

Christina is truly such a gift. I felt so safe speaking to her about very vulnerable things and she always helped me see that how I feel really matters. She held space for me and affirmed all of my concerns even when I doubted them myself. She is an incredible person and I’m so thankful that I got to work with her."

Julie Heide


"When we first met I had just left a draining and traumatic job and I needed support.
I knew I needed guidance to get back in touch with myself. 
After coaching with Christina, I listen to my body so much more now and allow myself to rest. It is also helping me with the work I do with my clients in therapy - I'm more present and am able to ask them to listen to their bodies, too.
This experience helped me get out of my head and into my body. Thank you!"

Rachel Arnold


"When we met I was feeling stuck in anxious and negative thoughts patterns, having unrealistic expectations for myself as a parent/human. 
Through our work together I gained a sense of self acceptance/love, and developed a  practice of observing my thoughts in a non-judge mental way. I’m accepting my emotions more. I’m trying to not  beat myself up for not being the “perfect” anything to anyone. I’m aware of my body more, getting in tune with my feelings, being present in daily life. 
People around me have said that I’m “settling into myself” lately and that’s so encouraging.
I’m so thankful for my experience with Christina! I felt so supported by them through our sessions, and the practices I’ve learned will be implemented for a life time. "
