Hi, I'm Christie! It's nice to "meet" you.
I am a Wellness and Empowerment Coach for Highly Sensitive People, a Yoga Instructor and the Award Winning Author of Empowering the Sensitive Soul,
My mission is to help kind, empathetic, compassionate people find strength in their sensitivity, balance their nervous systems and find a deeper connection to themselves so that they can stand in their power more fully and share their much-needed gifts with the world.
I know the struggles of the sensitive soul deeply. I have always been extremely sensitive - my nervous system did not learn how to properly regulate as an infant and for much of my life I was missing that deep knowing that I was safe in the world. My journey to empowered sensitivity was a long and windy road, but no matter what I went through, I never stopped studying, learning and focusing on healing and growth. I know I was meant to go through these challenges because through the process of healing and empowering myself, I have developed the unique gifts and perspective to guide others on their journey to empowered sensitivity. It is my purpose to empower sensitive souls and to shine a positive light on sensitivity so that we can learn to see it for the true gift that it is. I believe humans have the capacity to become more conscious, compassionate and community oriented and that sensitive souls have a great role in helping us get to that new paradigm.
