things got done in a matter of weeks, when I had been postponing them for years

“I'm so happy about having created new habits that positively affect my life on a daily basis — I'm structuring my days better, including some technology detox time! Also, I finally decluttered and organized my clothes, desk area, closets and moved on to the rest of the apartment!

A huge AH-HA moment was learning about Feng Shui and realizing how much our living space affects our lives. It gave me incredible motivation and inspiration to clear out our apartment — things got done in a matter of weeks, when I had been postponing them for years! Learning about Feng Shui and seeing the Bagua map on our floor plan literally got me into unstoppable action mode!

I loved Christine's passion for everything we talked about, her awesome energy, and her generosity. It was also great to have the email support in between sessions and the accountability via text when I was trying to instill a new habit — worked like magic!

—Leticia, New York, NY

 

I just took my first vacation in years

“I did Christine’s Branding with Archetypes program. It was amazing! I loved the level of guidance and encouragement she gave me to talk about my goals. Now, I’m so clear on who I am and what I have to offer. She helped me find the language to identify my brand. I’m just so much better now at explaining my wishes and core goals to my potential and present clients.

Christine’s coaching was very eye-opening. She made me realize I had been ‘leaving money on the table’ and showed me where I was wasting my energies. UPDATE: I’m making more money now and just took my first vacation in years.

—Sebastian, Brooklyn, NY

 

coaching with Christine... It's like practical, more functional counseling

“I really like coaching with Christine. It's way better than therapy! It's like practical, more functional counseling.”

—Rachel, Brooklyn, NY

 

I can’t believe how free and happy I feel in the same exact apartment

“I felt so stuck in my small New York City apartment and blamed it for everything that was ‘wrong’ in my life. Christine helped me see that it wasn't my apartment or my life that was holding me back, it was me and my thinking. I've been holding me back. I decluttered and made some small changes to my apartment but that's all. Now I can’t believe how free and happy I feel in the same exact apartment!”

—Diane, Brooklyn, NY

 

I used to emotionally shop and now I find other ways to feed myself when I’m down

“Before working with Christine, I was struggling with making time to attend to my space and the amount of stuff I owned.

I loved all her detailed instructions and help, the reading material, videos, and assignments — the more I had Christine's voice and influence around, the less messy I was, especially in the beginning while working through the resistance.

Now, I more quickly tackle small projects that make a difference, I enjoy the time I spend tending to my space more, and the biggest shift is in the way I think about my stuff and the work of keeping things tidy.

I used to emotionally shop and now I find other ways to feed myself when I'm down that don't lead to so many possessions. Christine gave me tools I can use going forward!”

—Katinka Locascio, Long Island City, NY

 

you don't even feel like you're doing a chore when Christine's helping you

“I love-love-love Christine! She's just amazing, and has helped my husband and I several times over the years. She really helps you understand what kind of organization will work best for you, so that you can maintain it going forward. For example, she realized my husband has trouble keeping his clothes organized because he needs to be able to see all his things, so she suggested putting his clothes in an open shelving closet instead of drawers. A revelation!

She's also just lovely and has a great sense of humor so you don't even feel like you're doing a chore when she's helping you. I can't recommend her enough!”

— Catherine, New York, NY

 

my biggest issue wasn't a lack of time, but rather a lack of systems and routines

“I was struggling with being overwhelmed about how to best declutter and organize all my stuff. After working with Christine, I was able to have the clarity, courage and momentum to clear and organize so many boxes with sentimental things in them. I now use what I learned in this program all the time to live in a more minimalist way and to surround myself with things I love and that make me happy!

My big A-HA was realizing that my biggest issue wasn't a lack of time, but rather a lack of systems and routines. And Christine has incredible compassion, understanding, encouragement and insightful tips and ideas!”

— Laura, New York, NY

 

Trashed 2,000 emails in the last 48 hours

“I feel like a whole new man!!! Not even kidding. I got some big takeaways from you and now I’ve been proactively organizing and cleaning literally on all fronts — getting on top of my projects at work, cleaning the house, I even have been cleaning out my email inbox. I’ve trashed 2,000 emails in the last 48 hours. I’m trying to press full steam ahead so the momentum becomes self-sustaining. Honestly, I can’t thank you enough for your help. More positive updates (and I’m sure some stumbles) to come!! Thank you again!!!!”

— Christopher, New York, NY

 

I'm letting go of stuff on a regular basis

“The 90-Day program was such a huge help—Christine's system is clear and really helpful. She helped me feel better about letting go of stuff on a regular basis and only keeping things that I use and serve me. And I am more consistent in continuing to declutter the congested areas of my home and have created a plan to complete my home improvement projects. I now know that it is possible to have a home that works for me! A home that is peaceful and not overwhelming or chaotic!

— Tamara, Boston, MA

 

I was skeptical of Feng Shui, now I have a more peaceful quality to my sleep

“After hearing Christine talk about the benefits of Feng Shui, I thought I'd give it a try in my work space. I was skeptical, but open to trying some new things, and I'm glad I did! After adding to my money/abundance area, I received a larger bonus from work than I expected. I had also been having uneasy sleepless nights for quite some time. After sharing this with Christine, she suggested I make a small change to the room. I followed her advice and have since noticed a more peaceful quality to my sleep. Now a believer, I plan on balancing my entire living space.”

— Nikki, New York, NY

 

I let go of the past and improved my overall energy

“Before your help, I had serious issues which were messing with my relationship and my head. After working with you, I was able to let go of some of the past and improve my overall energy. It was an amazing time of intense changes and adjustments, and I feel so great about things now! I finally fulfilled a lifelong dream to do improv and stand-up comedy and I’m finally asking for (and getting) what I want in my relationship. I could not have done this without you! Thank you so much!”

— Sarah, Chicago, IL

 

Christine saved me time and a lot of stress!

“I was preparing to move, feeling overwhelmed with everything I needed to take care of, and then Christine appeared. She immediately put me at ease, made me laugh, and patiently worked through all that needed to be done, saving me time and relieving a lot of stress. Throughout the process, she was encouraging and fun to work with—and she gave me great ideas on how to organize. I couldn't have done it without her!”

— Ava, New York, NY

 

Christine was so much fun to work with and helped me make great decisions

“When I looked around my office, I realized I had so many books around me that I didn't need and some old design projects that were just getting covered in dust! I contacted Christine and her help was nothing short of amazing and in no time my office looked WAY better! She was so much fun to work with and asked great questions to help me decide what to keep and what to toss. She makes it easy. I will definitely call her the next time I feel overwhelmed in my space. She has great ideas on great things to eat too!”

— Maxine, New York, NY

 

Christine got me to focus and everything was done quickly and efficiently

“Christine's cheerful, no-nonsense approach helped me pull my apartment together when it seriously needed help. She got me to focus on the task at hand and worked with me to get everything done quickly and efficiently.

— Beth, Brooklyn, NY

 

Life-changing tools made a huge difference in my life

"I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you teaching me these tools to work with — they’ve been life-changing and have made a huge difference in my life. I am really living now and having a blast dating and enjoying everything that I possibly can. I owe you a huge thank you! :D”

— Allison, Brooklyn, NY

 

My sink is clear of dishes!

“Because of you, I've kept my sink clear of dishes and it's SO NICE!!! Seriously, it's such a shift in my thinking. It feels so much better to have it done!

— Natalie, Washington, D.C.

 

Christine was sensitive to my needs and fun to work with

"Christine was extremely helpful and sensitive to my needs while helping me get organized. She was aware that some things that I considered to have great value were things that I needed to keep, and she helped me to display those things so that I could enjoy them, while getting rid of things that were simply cluttering my life. I highly recommend her services. Plus, she is fun to work with!”

— Judy, Modesto, CA

 

This works!

"You had an impact. This works!

— Lynn, Denver, CO

 

Christine simplified the way I dress

"Christine has changed the way I dress. Literally. She has done so by changing the way I fold my clothes, so I can fit everything and see each item when I open the drawer. I can choose something to wear without messing up all the other clothes! The other great thing she did was reorganize my closet. Like a lot of New Yorkers, I live in a tiny apartment without much closet space. We took to The Container Store and purchased items that gave me much more room in my closet. Again, for the first time, I could actually see what was in there!”

— Robert, Brooklyn, NY

 

I have such a sense of accomplishment and relief after our work together

"Christine did a fantastic job….I felt such a sense of accomplishment and relief when we finished our work together! I highly recommend her services!!”

— Annabelle, Hoboken, NJ

 

I feel so enlightened and joyful now

"I was dating someone and recognized old, tired patterns that were rearing their ugly heads again! I felt stuck, and realized I wanted to invest in myself by doing something that I love! And Christine’s coaching was absolutely lovely! It was intimate and supportive. Christine really has a magical way of making people feel at home. :) Her happiness and authenticity made it very enjoyable. I discovered that what was holding me back wasn’t what I thought it was. I’ve always kept a journal, so I really enjoyed the way Christine’s exercises were structured. Her circle meditation is amazing! I feel so enlightened and joyful now. I would absolutely recommend Christine to a friend — already have!”

— Brianna, Garden City, NY
