Hi, I’m Cristina— an emotional wellness, trauma-informed, holistic coach blending science and spirituality for deep-rooted healing. 

I am here to help you let go of over-functioning and toxic productivity. So you can feel more enjoyment and peace. 

Time waits for no one, or so the saying goes.
But... what if it does?


What if there is enough time to do and be all that we’re meant to 

if only we allow ourselves the grace to pause? 


In the relentless pursuit of perpetual motion, many of us have lost touch with the transformative power of rest. We’ve been conditioned to see moments of pause and stillness as time wasted. Time lost. 

But taking moments to breathe deeply, to reflect, to do nothing at all is not a concession to time. It is a harmonious dance with it. 


When we embrace intentional pauses, we don't just enrich the quality of our present. We also lay the foundation for a future that aligns more authentically with our truest desires. 


When we stop resisting time, we start navigating it with wisdom—with a profound appreciation for the nuanced cadence of life itself. We find flow, ease, and belonging in the present moment. We find purpose. We find ourselves.

My mission is to help my clients fall in love with who they are.

if you’re anything like the people I work with:

You’re a doer, thinker, and question-asker—and you still struggle to feel at peace with yourself and the world. You want deeper self-awareness and clarity into life’s big questions. 


You value excellence—and you feel enormous pressure to constantly improve, perform, and meet your own standards. You’re trying to be the best at everything, for everyone, all of the time. You want to feel at peace with where you are right now.

You’re years into your personal development journey—but you still have questions. You’ve read the books, listened to the podcasts, and talked to the “experts.” Yet you
sense there is still more work to be done–and you’re ready to try alternative methods. You want a proven path forward. 

You built some of the life you thought you wanted—but now you just feel stressed out, burned out, and left out of the good times everyone else seems to be enjoying. The days can fly by in a blur, and you’re at times not happy with what you have to show for them. You want to live with more ease, intention, and fulfillment.

Sound familiar? If so, there is nothing wrong with you. These are common symptoms in a fast-paced world that prioritizes productivity over purpose.

I’ll guide you to a place where you can:  

Integrate your ponderings and learnings into a better everyday—by understanding the intricate interplay between your mind, body, spirit, and environment. So you can slide into strategic alignment. 

See the whole spectrum of experience—by refr
aming ingrained assumptions and narratives through a guided process of introspective questioning. So you can integrate belief systems and ways of relating to yourself that nurture your brilliance. 

Arrive at a place where "yet more healing" stops being attractive—by easing into guided explorations of your senses, values, and personal growth in a judgement-free environment. So you can do without your shield and surrender to your inevitable flourishing. 

Find purpose and peace in the present—by saying goodbye to coping mechanisms that hurt more than they help. And tuning into the power of ever present organic intelligence, deep rest, and somatic exercises to infuse your being with a sense of safety. 

Cristina is one of the most sincere, caring, warm-hearted people I know. Yet in addition to being genuinely kind, she is also extraordinarily insightful and practical!"
