Life coaching — done right works.

My coaching tools are all evidence- and research-based, and because of this, I’ve seen coaching massively change people’s lives in a very short period of time. 


"But isn’t coaching expensive?" people often ask. "And time-consuming? And difficult? And isn’t your waitlist like 50 people deep?"

Here’s the thing: There is absolutely no reason that coaching has to be 1-on-1 to be effective. 


It’s so much easier to see what other people need to fix—and to give them advicethan it is to address our own blind spots. From there, it’s a much shorter leap to taking our own advice. 

Here's the best part:

Brave Over Perfect Coaching is only $20 for three group coaching calls + an online community of like-minded people + a ton of online resources. (For reference, my individual coachingwithout the community and additional resources— is $300/hour.) Calls occur every other month to give you a chance to integrate what you’ve learned before jumping into coaching again.

The new year is almost here. Let it be more than just hectic this year. 

Let it be meaningful, joyful, and fulfilling.

"The most important thing I learned is that I don't have to conquer a mountain every day to have value. This is probably why the strategic slacking had a particular impact on me. I love your practical, down to earth approach."  - Jennifer

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I receive coaching if other people are on the phone?

A: Press *6 and I will call on you. You can also submit your question through the discussions platform in the classroom or on the private Facebook page.

Q: Is there an intake interview or some other way that you get to know me before the calls?
A: Yes. We will send you a brief survey, and ask that you introduce yourself to the coaching group online before the calls.

Q: Is there a lot of homework?

A: No! You can do as much or as little work as you want. This is designed for busy people.

Q: If I miss a call, how do I access the call recordings? 

A: Through the online classroom, the online calendar (it syncs with Google, Outlook, iCal, etc.) or on the private Facebook page.

Q: Is it confidential?

A: What is said in the group, stays in the group. You don’t have to reveal anything. You don’t even have to speak. It’s totally worth it just to hop on the calls and listen. 

Q: Who is this for?

A: Brave Over Perfect Group Coaching is for people who are interested in personal growth and who want something easier—and more effective—than reading a self-help book. The type of coaching I do tends to make people:

  • More insightful about their lives and the things that are holding them back
  • More productive and efficient—and less anxious, time-starved, and stressed
  • More joyful and fulfilled

In the last year, my clients have moved into more fulfilling careers. They’ve worked out more peaceful routines at home. They’ve become less stressed and more joyful. Some have begun exercising and meditating regularly. Others have gone from crazy busy to hugely creative. 

My goal is always to give YOU the tools you need to change yourself, so you can eventually act as your own coach.

Q: How do I listen to recordings from past themes?

A: Recordings are available for as long as the theme is “live,” and then are taken down. This helps us keep our group more intimate and confidential—and it helps us focus our discussion and learning on the current theme.

Q: What happens in the months when there are no coaching calls?

A: The “off” months—when there are no coaching callsare for integrating what we learned in the previous month. The discussions continue for those who are interested on Facebook and in the online classroom, and Christine also answers questions online in these months.

"The Group Coaching has helped me reconsider ways to make my 'must-do' tasks more enjoyable."

"I love the coaching calls!"

Q: What's included?

A: Three 90-minute coaching calls every other month that include instruction and group coaching, online resources (like videos and readings), and a vibrant online community. 

Q: I’m in a very different time zone, and I’m wondering if the coaching needs to be attended live. Can I tune in after it starts? Listen after it happens?

A: Group coaching is very flexible. If you can't make the live calls, no worries. We make the recordings available for download. There is also a calendar filled with short posts related to the theme. You can participate as much or as little as you like there.  

In addition, we have a robust Facebook page (and discussion board in the classroom if you aren't on Facebook) where Christine checks in and does a little virtual coaching. People share their challenges and the group is very supportive. 

Q: When does coaching take place? 

A: Three online and live calls (schedule posted above). If you can't join calls, listen to recordings and receive online coaching.

Brave Over Perfect Coaching is an effective and affordable way to learn how to live with more courage, acceptance, joy, presence, self-compassion, gratitude, and authenticity.
