Feeling overwhelmed by the role of motherhood? No matter if it's your first or fifth, a new baby brings great change and often huge emotions for mom. Come to our weekly support group when you can for education, inspiration and community.
Research has shown that we sometimes carry trauma in our bodies for years. Trauma sensitive yoga and meditation are tools to help release the hold trauma and stress can have on our physical selves. We use slow and mindful movement and focus to heal from within, so that we can regain power over our lives. This isn't your power yoga class but it is empowering.
Imagine, a full day or even a few days away to recharge, rest, and maybe even reinvent. Restoration retreats are time well spent, full of life-affirming connection and inspiration. There is nothing more powerful than rooms full of women sharing and guiding one another toward their greatness. At Restoration Retreats, women of all ages and stages come to be reminded of their power and leave rested, revived and ready to shout about it to the world.
My favorite part of this Reinvention Retreat was the positive and encouraging atmosphere as well as the mediation and vision casting. All of the women were so welcoming. I enjoyed the experience and was pleasantly surprised.

I appreciated that this weekend I learned how to envision my goals in a way that was more encouraging to move toward them as well as the importance of having patience with myself. My favorite part was the opportunity to take time out and look within.

The first retreat I attended gave me a few “a-ha” moments that have really stuck with me and helped me through a very difficult period in my life. I learned to let myself have time to focus on what I really want.

Even though Cristie is thousands of miles away, each Explicit Parenting session feels as if she’s by my side —cheering me on and guiding me to make more meaningful, productive choices for myself and my family. Cristie’s ability to hear what I need — even when I can’t articulate it — and set me up for success is a true gift. She’s helped me organize my mind, my priorities, and my family in ways that have made for a happier, more peaceful home.

Of all the professional and educational avenues Cristie has travelled, perhaps the most important path is the one where her roles include family. For it is these roles that have driven her professional and creative pursuits.
No matter what Cristie studies or jobs she pursues, all roads ultimately lead back to marriage and parenting. Cristie is passionate about working with women in transition finding their place and purpose in the world, as well as couples and families to help foster healthy, communicative and happy homes.
Cristie’s priority is to empower people to find their true north and align their lives with it. She does this by listening deeply and addressing the whole person, not just the problems they bring. It is here where the healing begins. As a firm believer in the connection of mind and physical body, Cristie uses an eclectic mix of strategies including; mindfulness, EMDR, IFS, trauma sensitive yoga, cognitive-behaviorism and person-centered talk therapy. Cristie believes every person who comes into her office has the power and intuition to heal themselves and move into their own light. Her job is simple: patiently help guide people toward the greatness they already possess.
