I have over 20 years of experience coaching individuals and leaders in the private and public sector (specifically IT and healthcare). My background is in Human Resource Management and I am passionate about helping others succeed both in their career and in life.
This experience makes me a highly effective life coach, helping others with habits, spirituality and relationships.
I am also a bereavement coach. Having lost my son to an opioid overdose in 2013, I specialize in helping others deal with losses of all kinds - family, friends, pets, etc. My empathetic, compassionate approach, based on lived-experience, will help you move forward out of your darkness in order to begin to live again.
Struggling with a loved one with addiction? I can help you develop tools to reclaim YOUR life and YOUR control. I also provide parent support coaching for those challenged by their kids. Take care of yourself. It's hard. I get it.
In 2017 I had bariatric surgery. I will also coach those seeking safe, healthy solutions to permanent weight loss. If you are contemplating gastric bypass, sleeve, roux-en-y, I can walk with you through the process and coach you to success. If you have had your surgery and are struggling, you need a coach more than ever to maintain what you worked so hard for.
I am located in Waterloo, ON however I perform all coaching remotely and therefore location is not an issue. I hope to hear from you!

When I applied for a new position at work last year, I was able to anticipate the change in duties, in administration, and in reporting.
What I had not anticipated was that this new job was part of the executive team at our multi-national corporation. While I had worked ‘office’ jobs for most of my adult life, rarely had I interacted with the executive. I could do the work; I wasn’t confident in myself enough in myself to do the job, though.
I quickly learned that this meant more than a simple change in dress code. That was when I reached out to Christine. Setting goals and check-ins with Christine has helped me prioritise my work like a CEO, set and maintain an exceptional standard of work which has built and polished my reputation, and brought me recognition for my contributions to not only my team, but other teams that reached out for support and to which I took the plunge and responded. Christine has helped me navigate the transition from ‘production’ mentality to ‘executive’ drive. She helped me find the confidence to not only speak up in client- and director-level meetings by communicating professionally but also to build bridges and seek opportunities for improvement across multiple organisations and stakeholders, too.
My manager has also remarked on how much better she feels about certain challenges our team faces because I am there to manage the risk, and have taken on a coordinator role. When I heard this, I felt like I had finally found the right fit—and it was because Christine helped me find the confidence to do it. This confidence has transferred into my personal life where I have finally started taking better care of my physical self and appearance, which resulted in an improved sense of self-worth and personal representation.
I look forward to my time with Christine as a way of checking my own growth and progress, and also of digging into some of my weaknesses. These are harder to face, as they are always tied to my insecurities; however with Christine’s support, I am turning each weakness at a time into a strength. It isn’t always easy to face the roots of those feelings, but Christine helps remind me I’m not alone and also, there’s always a path forward.
I look back at myself a year ago and am sometimes staggered by how far I’ve come. I am very grateful for the time and commitment Christine has made to help me set and achieve my goals and keep striving for more because, as I’ve learned, I really can do it when I put my mind to it.
Thank you, Christine, for everything you helped me realise I could do. More...
Business & Career Coaching
Christine is a great coach. I was all over the map when I reach out to her. She helped me focus, realize my potential and work on my strength. I struggled with anxiety and toxic work environment. She was able to steer me in the right direction leaving behind negativity and looking forward for a new opportunity. Her coaching and guidance have not only helped me secure a new job, but have helped me in putting behind the negativity and put myself back on track. She was there for me every step of the way, and I could not have done it without her. I am so happy that got the opportunity to work with Christine and she will be the first for me to reach out to in the future if I face any career challenges. More...

Christine and her coaching were truly incredible. Struggles with anxiety and current job dissatisfaction were bringing me to a place I was not wanting to be.
With her empathy, care, compassion and expertise, she helped guide me through ways of confronting my current situation. Not only does she truly listen, her ability to provide constructive feedback while creating personal strategies for individual and unique scenarios is impeccable. A truly genuine and educated professional, with whom I am glad I reached out to for personal growth and life coaching.
