Coaching Questions

Will you work with clients outside of your niche?

Some examples: 

  • Will you work with fathers?
  • Will you work with mothers who work full-time?
  • Will you work with mothers who were thrilled when their child(ren) went back to school?
  • Will you work with someone who has been in the empty nest for years?
  • Will you work with students?
  • Will you work with women who aren’t mothers? 

Absolutely.

I have even had non-empty nesters work with me with amazing results!

Are you a certified coach?

The life coaching industry is unregulated, meaning there is a lack of consistency in what it means to be a “certified coach.”

Christine’s coaching career began without certification and focused on sharing tools and resources that worked for her, her clients, and her podcast audience. Five years and hundreds of coaching hours later, the C.E.O. (Conscious Effective Olympian) Of Your Life concept now exists and continues to be refined.

Christine earned a BetterUpⓇ Coaching Foundations Certificate in 2023, completing 11 weeks (50 hours) of immersive training reinforcing foundational life coaching skills focused on motivational interviewing, client-centered language, and more.

Coaching testimonials:

“Christine is extremely present and supportive and understands the complexity of the emotions one faces in life.”

“Christine provides a warm, confidential, and trustworthy environment in her sessions.”

“Ever the optimist, Christine’s questions are thought-provoking, causing deeper insight into your state of mind, and can often reveal hidden or subconscious beliefs, fears, or motivations.”

“Working with Christine didn’t only help me with my daughter’s situation – the empty nest. The way that she’s taught me to – and worked with me to get better at choosing the thoughts I want to think and gaining more energy – spilled over into other areas of my life.”

Some other things you may want to know:

  • I coach myself daily and throughout the day.
  • I adore holding space for others to reflect on their thoughts.
  • My goal is not to become your accountability coach.
  • My goal is to hold space for you, cheer you on, and share teachings that empower you to discover who you are and help you become your biggest fan.

Before coaching, Christine has enthusiastically enjoyed other careers. Some of her favorites have been:

  • Homeschooling Mother
  • Podcast Host & Producer
  • Administrative Assistant
  • YouTube Series Producer
  • Balloon Artist
  • Programmer/Analyst
  • Dining Room Manager
  • Macy’s Santaland Elf (NYC)
  • Actress/Singer

Why is your website live already?

I am live! Putting myself out there worked! I’m five years into this adventure, and I left my original response to encourage those who need to read it for their own projects. 

Great question.

I am lucky enough to have friends who are willing to provide feedback as I go. So, why not put it out there and be honest about where I am? There is a lot more urgency to my progress as well, this way. So, this is where I am, today: totally all-in and authentically putting it all out there, even when it isn’t “ready.” Where I will be tomorrow: a little bit further along. Thanks for asking and for being here.

 

Changes in four years since I first created this page: moved twice as a family, navigated all four years of out of state college for daughter (now graduated), I lost weight, started taking better care of myself, started working full-time while building this business, turned 50-years-old, hubby above is now ex-hubby, got a great new job, cranked out 150+ podcast episodes, attended my first podcasting conference, spoke at the next one, and just bought a manufactured home for me (and my daughter for as long as she needs to be there) to live in, changed my last name, podcast hit 100K downloads, and I’m working on a book!

Empty Nest Success doesn’t always look like over the moon happiness. Sometimes, it looks like accepting what is, processing emotions, and moving forward as peacefully as possible with little drama – and that feels amazing!
