Hi, I’m Cristie. How Can I Help?

I’m a girl who’s seen a bunch, survived a bunch and learned how to thrive. 

I’m a doctor of Psychology, a doula, a teacher and healer. What I mostly am is a mom who wants to help other moms, not just survive, but also thrive and fall in love with their lives. I do that in therapy sessions, through mindful parenting courses, hosting restorative and empowering retreats for women, writing blogs and books and having tough conversations on my podcast. 

Poke around here awhile and you just may find that what you’ve been looking for right here on this site.

This is my wish for you and me. Parenthood can be viewed as a series of small goodbyes. But instead of dwelling in the heartache, let’s choose to relish their victories in growing up and ours in turning out great humans into the world. . . . #parentingteens #maternalmentalhealth #motherhood #summer #graduationseason ...

Then, stare at this picture and exhaaaallllee. 😘⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #parenting⁠ #pandemicparenting⁠ #mentalhealth⁠ #breathe ...

IT IS SO GOOD! @msthienkim joins me to talk about the big daddy of uncomfortable conversations... being a mom AND seeking pleasure AND talking to our kids about s-e-x. (We pack a lot into this one!) ⁠ Come listen, hear our new theme song by my in-house singer-songwriter and join us for some parenting conversation that makes you go hmmm... 😉⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #empowerment⁠ #empoweredparenting⁠ #parenting⁠ #motherhood⁠ #podcast⁠ #uncomfortableconversations ...
