ABOUT

Meet Christa

I teach ambitious and mission-driven women how to gain the clarity, motivation and confidence to love their jobs or leave them, as well as work with organizations to build productive, positive, and engaged work cultures.

A key principle of my coaching philosophy is the belief that we must learn how to lead ourselves in order to achieve the impact we desire and effectively lead others. Developing this aptitude requires diligent self-reflection, clear and focused direction, and intentionality. These areas are at the center of my work with clients.  

As a career and leadership development coach, I focus on the intersection of facilitating change to achieve goals alongside strategic self  development. I partner with my clients to evaluate their current challenges, develop action-oriented solutions, and identify and overcome barriers to success. I integrate reflection and learning strategies to help my clients deepen self-awareness, strengthen their habits, and make intentional choices that align with their objectives and aspirations.

Coaching is a process designed for individuals, groups, and organizations that want to move forward and create new results. Through coaching, my clients shift their mindset and perspectives, and apply their knowledge and learning to pursue newfound avenues to success. My clients learn to understand what drives their behavior and how to leverage their unique strengths and abilities to overcome setbacks and make lasting changes. I adapt and individualize the coaching process based on my clients’ specific needs and goals, which is discussed in our initial consultation.

My Clients

Women Professionals

I love working with women who are seeking clarity in defining their next steps, and want to take their career and life to the next level. I've worked with women across the world, helping them quit unfulfilling jobs, recover from burnout, and step into their dream, whether launching their own business, landing the perfect corporate role, or taking the right actions to love their current job.  

Do any of these sound familiar?

  • You’re not clear on what you want in your career and/or life;

  • You feel something is missing, like you're on a hamster wheel that you need to get off of;

  • You’re at a crossroads and unsure of which direction to go in;

  • You’re typically a motivated high-achiever, but have not been feeling motivated and inspired to achieve your goals;

  • You know you have so much more to offer and could be doing more to grow, but don’t know how to get ahead of yourself;

  • You feel overwhelmed when considering the options for your future;

  • You struggle with uncertainty and self-doubt, and don't feel like you're living to your potential; 

  • You’re trying to balance being a leader in your role while still being authentic to who you are;

  • You feel too burnt out to explore opportunities for fulfillment;

  • You want a career/job that fulfills you and offers you the balance you’re looking for in life, but don’t know how to achieve this.

If any of the above resonate with you, then my coaching may be the solution for you to move forward. You can get in touch with me and schedule a consultation to learn more about my coaching programs.

On A Personal Note

I was born and raised on Long Island, NY, and I’ve lived in Washington DC for the past 9 years. Outside of coaching, I love staying active, traveling as often as I can, exploring Washington D.C. and enjoying life with my boyfriend, family and friends.
