I met Cristiana while visiting my holistic chiropractor. I was there in search of finding balance, counteracting grief, and reducing stress. I felt out of sorts in my body and mentally exhausted.
That day, Cristiana was a complete stranger who had entered the office and walked over, offered a quiet understanding that was much needed in that moment. We spoke briefly and I learned she was a life coach. This was a very serendipitous moment. Soon after, I became a client. This was my first time ever having a life coach and I had no idea what to expect. She listened as I shared where I was in my career and personal goals. I had a lot of questions about what I ‘should’ or ‘could’ be doing in both areas of my life. The more I shared, the more I realized I needed assistance in shifting my perception of things. I desired to make some changes BUT, I didn’t know how to accomplish this on my own. Cristiana was great at seeing through all of the distraction and patiently met me where I was in my understanding at that moment. Instead of giving me opinions or answers, she patiently coached me to find the answers for myself.
In those three months of coaching, I couldn’t have asked for a better person to re-introduce me to my strengths, confidence, and authenticity. Cristiana’s coaching style kept me very present. The assignments were insightful and what I learned in this process inspired me to move in the direction of my dreams. I could see my path a lot clearer and approached challenges with more enlightened awareness. For this, I am truly grateful.
