COACHING & SUPPORT
It's what you want when real change is what you need
The Coaching Difference
What if you're not a procrastinator but someone who is struggling with a form of anxiety? When we self-diagnose or let others define us, we end up working on the wrong things, hence little to no change. Coaching helps you clarify the problem and plan actions to take.
What was once frustrating becomes easier with coaching. Not only are you tracking your progress, which feeds the dopamine-producing (reward) area of the brain but being accountable to your coach makes you more committed to checking things off your list, especially your daily self-care;-)
With the partnering format of coaching, you are more likely to plan goals and stay on track. Coaches like me shorten your learning curve -- we have expertise in the subject, are an extra brain to brainstorm with, and will be cheerleaders when you need one. It's a given, good coaching helps you experience more wins.
Founder & Emotional Health Coach
Christine is an ICF-certified life coach specializing in emotional health and mindfulness and a graduate of New York University.
She completed her coaching training at iPEC in New Jersey, an on-campus program with a spiritual emphasis. As a Mindfulness educator, she led workshops and worked with various groups in Southern California, including at Neighborhood Church in Pasadena. Experienced in Positive Neuroplasticity (a brain rewirement technique), Christine advocates a proactive approach to treating trauma and achieving personal growth using techniques that work below the surface with accumulative effects.
She is experienced in and recommends tools as varied as microdosing, meditation, water therapies, virtual reality therapy, grounding, and coaching for psychological betterment. Her own wellness plan includes meditation, nootropics, alternating between different forms of exercise, intermittent fasting, and a mindful morning routine she developed to reduce work stress. Together, these have been helping her successfully manage hypothyroidism without the prescribed medication.
Christine knows how hard it can be trying to work through thorny issues by yourself because she tried doing it for over 15 years. As someone for whom talk therapy didn't work well and most self-help solutions were meh, she started doing more "applied research," where solutions came from experimenting. It's this approach that she brings to her one-on-one coaching sessions. Because she loves research, she is always learning new tools from experts in Australia, India, the UK, and the US, and with that, is always bringing fresh ideas to her clients.
Christine's Mental Health Coaching
There is some overlap between traditional talk therapy and mental health coaching, however, as an action-oriented process, mental health coaching is best for someone who is functional and does not need pharmaceutical meds.
➜ Someone who gets unusually worked up over status and success.
➜ Someone who overthinks about the past and does little about it.
➜ Someone who worries a lot about the future and does little about it.
➜ Someone who is easily triggered, prone to anger, and moodiness.
➜ Someone who didn't get the support and validation they needed.
➜ Someone who experienced trauma and never fully healed.
➜ Someone who likes to review their progress with another person.
➜ Someone who wants to try supplements and personalized health tips.
With the therapeutic lifestyle, which is well laid out for you to follow, doing daily self-care activities, and taking classes to learn brain rewirement and mental health techniques, many people will be fine on either the group or 40-minute coaching plan. But when those aren't enough and if you wish to discuss supplements, microdosing, or meet weekly, the 80-minute plan is recommended.
