Christina’s attention to detail and no sugar coating when it comes to revealing yourself to you is unlike any experience I’ve had before. I truly feel like the universe meant for us to cross paths and I know that sounds so corny but it’s profound the discoveries I’ve had with her perspective and experience and expertise. She’s incredibly in tune with the mind and how it functions and her delivery is absolutely perfect for my learning and communication style.

I just started interacting with Christina, I've only talked to her once and we're still doing "housekeeping" (meaning getting started). We just don't have enough history for me to write a more than a " great first impression" review; BUT, the couple of things she's said and sent were very good.

The one time I spoke with her she was very positive and likable, and the couple of things she sent were helpful. I'm eager to get to know her better.
