“I have had the good fortune to experience Christine in both group and 1:1 contexts. I was struck by her expertise, positivity and the ability to connect at a personal level with a variety of different people in varying degrees of stress – all in a very short period of time. Her facility to activate people’s faith in their ability to address their situations, as well as coach them through various forms of action to make good on this shift, was very much appreciated by myself and others who worked with her.”
