Say YES to Your Best Self!

  • Do you have dreams of what life ‘could’ be like, but seem to drift or get distracted?
  • Are you someone who gets a lot done but always feels like it is not enough, or not specific to YOUR goals?
  • Are you often squeezed between raising your children and caring for your parents, your spouse, work?
  • Do you ever feel guilty when you take time for yourself?
  • Does the term “self-care” sound, well…selfish?

Coaching is future focused.  Coaching is geared toward sharpening your skill set, building habits that work for you, and helping you reach your goals in a manner that fits with your values and lifestyle.

I offer:

  • High-Performance Coaching – both individual and group options available
  • Sandwich Generation (raising children while caring for an aging parent
  • Parenting, including Parenting children with special needs 

Coaching with me is:

  • By phone or zoom
  • Non-judgmental
  • Life-affirming. Practical. Empowering.

I’ve coached professionals, working parents, and graduate students, and led teams through significant shifts in program evaluation, program development, mergers, and program evolution. As a result of my skills in developing teams and programs, I was awarded a commendation from the City of Santa Monica for the work I did transforming a night to night shelter serving 20 adults into a 9-month, 55-bed full-service Transitional Housing program.

I am a Licensed Educational Psychologist, a Certified High-Performance Coach™, am certified in the use of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), and have a Masters in Counseling.  Above all, my goal as a coach is to help you identify your goals, then work with you as you achieve them.

High-Performance Coaching

I am currently enrolling folks who want to make BIG changes in their life. People who want to break through the blocks that have been holding them back.

People who want to say YES to their Best Self!

Do you ever hear yourself saying things like, “Once I get this one thing out of the way, I can then start working on what I really want to do”


“When I get the next promotion, earn that next degree, find that perfect soulmate, lose those last pounds, then I can start to focus on my real life”


“I don’t have the confidence, motivation, energy to do what I really want, but I know I am meant for more”

Are you playing small?  Trying to fit in?  Dreaming but not doing?

High-Performance Coaching is designed for people who may already be doing big things in their lives, whether it be raising incredible children, competing in triathlons, crushing it as entrepreneurs or moving up the corporate ladder, but who yearn to have that level of success or feeling of accomplishment in all parts of their lives.

Or people who have big dreams but haven’t yet had the confidence to put those dreams into action.

We can work so hard to get where we want to be sometimes, and then look back and realize we left some other parts of ourselves behind.

Or we can be successful in a number of areas but have multiple setbacks that knock us off our game, and we start to play small.

High-Performance living is the ongoing feeling of full engagement, joy, and confidence that comes from living your best life and saying YES to your Best Self.

Consistently over time.

We get to that place by reaching heightened and sustained levels of clarity, energy, necessity, courage, productivity, and influence.

Integrating research from psychology, physiology, and neuroscience, we can learn to master our mindset, establish strong habits, develop skills and start living more fully from our best selves.

In my individual and group-coaching programs, we will use the High-Performance curriculum based on personal development theory and research put forth by Brendon Burchard.

What’s the format?

  • 12 weekly coaching calls – 60 minutes in length
  • Each weekly call will focus on specific modules from the High-Performance Coaching curriculum designed by Brendon Burchard.
  • All calls are recorded and will be made available to you
  • A follow-up email with notes from Christy will be delivered within 48 hours along with follow-up worksheets
  •   An optional closed Facebook Group for those in a group program will be offered

If you are ready to say YES to Your Best Self – start by completing this questionnaire.

Upon completion of the questionnaire, you will be given a link to schedule a Focus Call with me. I look forward to chatting with you soon!!

Sandwich Generation Coaching


Raising children while caring for aging parents is a TOUGH SQUEEZE!

I know – I have been there.  

I cared for my aging parents for nearly 6 years while raising two children and working full time.  It wasn’t perfect, and I gave it my all, suffering much of the time until I found ways to leverage my emotional resources, enlist support and put a framework to my lifestyle so that I could meet the needs of my family on both ends of the spectrum while not running myself into the ground.  

I found a way to Build a Legacy of Love!

Nearly 50% of Americans are living inside the Sandwich Generation.

For the last few years I’ve spent time researching resources, developing self-care workshops and blending my coaching practices and experience as a psychologist in order to offer services specific to folks in this time of life so that you, too can BUILD A LEGACY of LOVE for your family.

Coaching with me is:

  • By phone or zoom
  • Tailored to your needs, as well as your family’s
  • Life-Affirming. Practical. Empowering

Parent Coaching!


Children don’t come with directions!

You don’t need a license to be a parent – you don’t even need to take a class!

Yet this is probably the most important endeavor we will ever take on.  Raising children – indeed, raising the next generation – is likely the hardest job a human being can do.  Therefore, it calls for a huge variety of skill sets.

For instance:

    • What do I do when a child is having a tantrum?
    • What does “normal” or “typical” really look like?
    • How do I navigate the school system?
    • How do I find trustworthy childcare?
    • What do school-age children really need?
    • How much sleep do children need at each age or stage?
    • Who do I contact if I suspect my child has special needs?
    • What do I do about technology, social media?
    • How do I handle the tweens and teenage years?
    • What about bullying?

In terms of parent coaching, I bring my experience as a parent, teacher and Licensed Educational Psychologist (BBS #3277)  to help you navigate the many developmental challenges that face your children and you. I have over 20 years of experience in educational settings from preschool through college.

Coaching with me is:

  • By phone or zoom
  • Tailored to your needs, as well as your child’s
  • Life-Affirming. Practical. Empowering

You Love Your Child!

That is the best start for any child and parent – let’s build from there!
