Heart-Based Coaching


I am an uninvited guest on the unceded ancestral lands and territories of the Stó:lō and Semiahmoo First Nations, and of all the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and SENĆOŦEN speaking people.

I commit to actively unearthing and dismantling my own views rooted in white supremacy, and continuing on the journey of Reconciliation.

To better understand the ancestral lands, territories, and languages of the land you inhabit, visit to continue your learning journey in dismantling white supremacy.

If you are seeking deeper connections, a slower pace, and a more wholehearted way of navigating life, you are in the right place.

The most authentic choices I have made in my life have all come from what I call, heart-based change. This type of decision making has not always been my default, but with this focus I have seen the most significant and beautiful changes come into my life.

I define heart-based change as:
~ navigating our decisions in ways which we trust our intuition;
~ improving our ability to communicate and set healthy boundaries; and
~ bringing ourselves into closer alignment with our core values so that we can connect more deeply to ourselves and others.

I am your advocate for change.

Expect to be seen, supported, challenged, and surprised by the wisdom of what your heart already knows.

Hi! My name is Chrissie and I am a wellness writer, life coach, and educator.

I co-create personal and professional growth plans with my clients, and support their progress through individualized coaching programs, resources and workshops.

I specialize in clients who are committed to leading with their values, to improving their communication skills and their ability to set boundaries, and to recognizing the role their hearts play in their decision making and success.

Every Monday I share a reason that reflects a practice of gratitude for visionary people wanting to lead by example through compassion, joy and connectivity.

Anything I send you is created from my personal values of growth, joy and compassion. Connecting with others is one of the ways I commit to living my values, so please feel free to email me with any questions or comments, or just to say hello!

By reading, I invite you to give yourself the gift of slowing down, even if it is just for a few minutes.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Do you want to know what working with me could look like and what returns you can expect from engaging in this process with me?

Reach out to explore if I’d be a good fit for helping you navigate the changes you wish to see in your life! No pressure or obligation. (And completely free!) Just an opportunity to experience life coaching for yourself.

I was at a crossroads of my kids needing me less, and me pursuing my business and personal goals.  I was struggling to find organization and direction, and with Chrissie’s help, I was able to find clarity.

Chrissie is an exceptional listener and was able to mirror-back what I said in an objective manner.  We were able to notice patterns that impacted my daily and long term thought patterns, finding new coping strategies for grounding and organizing my life. I felt that she genuinely cared about me as a person in addition to reaching my goals

After our sessions I felt confident in my next steps forward.  Following my passions and feeling grounded serve not only myself, but my family and community. I am a very happy client.”
