Coaching Questions

Will you work with clients outside of your niche?

Some examples: 

  • Will you work with fathers?
  • Will you work with mothers who worked 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? 


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

Join the C.E.O. Training Team (group membership)  which you may join with private coaching sessions or without (see the two offerings and choose what works best for you).

Are you a certified coach?

The life coaching industry is unregulated. Completely unregulated. When a life coach is certified, there is no consistency behind what that certification means from one school to another.

I have not chosen to pursue certification at this time.

Want to know what I’m all about?  My podcast (specifically, episode 1) will clearly give you an idea if we’ll be a good fit or not.

If you are still reading, awesome! Here is why I am qualified to help you: 

I have been where you are and have assembled tools for you that worked for me.

I have successfully coached women, and created an online membership program around the coaching.

Other things you may want to know:

  • Abraham-Hicks is a recent influence, as I’ve found that much of the content and teachings I’ve been inspired to create when alone are well aligned with these teachings. Life is supposed to be fun!
  • Eckhart Tolle? The power of now? Yes! LIFE. CHANGING.
  • Brooke Castillo and her Self-Coaching Model – this started it all for me!
    • I have used Brooke’s Self Coaching model myself and after spending some time in self-coaching scholars, I wanted to help others with what I learned. She’s amazing enough to allow us to use her model while we coached (and I asked her, too) – as long as we give her credit, which I always do – Thank you, Brooke! Using the self coaching model, I:
      • lost over 35 40 45 50 pounds – and am still losing!
      • was able to function well emotionally as my 14-year-old went off to college four years early and over four hours away (out of state).
      • view my “other” job as the perfect place for me to be.
      • am able to manage my mind well in what past-me would consider difficult circumstances.
      • create this value in the world.
  • Brené Brown? Love her! What story are you telling yourself? 
  • I’ve been an avid self-help book reader since I began working in my mid-teen years.
  • I coach myself daily and throughout the day.
  • I love, love, love helping others manage their mind which manifests in all areas of their life.
  • Through my work, I’ve created analogies and mnemonics of my own that resonate well with clients.
  • My goal is not to become your accountability coach. My goal is to hold space for you, to cheer you on, to share teachings with you that empower you to discover who you are and help you to become your own biggest fan. The true goal is that one day, you don’t need Coach Christine at all – you’ve gained what you need to trust your inner guidance and you are ready to share it worth the world. Yes! 💚

Why do you have 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!
