"Mental health and psychological game is undoubtedly the most vital part of being an athlete.
Being a national level athlete is no small feat, and Christen has helped me strengthen my confidence and find pride in my everyday accomplishments. Wth her advice and listening ear, I have learned to love what is good for me and to focus on the things I have control of.
Her wisdom has allowed me to approach competitions and practice with a better mindset, therefore making me a happier and more successful swimmer."
"I was amazed by how much clarity and perspective I gained over the course of four conversations with Christen. As an amateur runner, I feel like I've read all the books and blogs and listened to all the podcasts on confidence and mental toughness. But it was Christen who helped me figure out how to identify what was holding me back and how to reframe my thinking."
"Working with Christen gave me the confidence to face my fears and the clarity to set big goals for myself. With her guidance, I've learned how to be my own biggest cheerleader."
"Throughout my career, I have struggled translating great practices into great performances. Talking with Christen and building my confidence has been the key to performing the same way I practice. And bonus! Building confidence has made me more joyful in life outside of the pool too!"
"With Christen’s help, she has taught me to speak truth to my fears and doubts and give myself credit for my hard work. When I know that I have done enough in practice and I am enough as a woman, I have the confidence to race and give it my all."
"Christen has taught me that I am worthy of my dreams and ambitions. As I continue to grow, I feel so confident in who I am. I wear my crown for all to bask in the glow that is me."
"Working with Christen has helped me gain the confidence I need to compete at the highest level. I have been able to view myself as an equal rather than keep myself down on a lower pedestal."

"Christen’s passion puts her in a league of her own, and I promise you will leave her with a newfound confidence and drive to take on the world."
"After working with Christen, I have been able to foster my confidence and truths and turn them into who I am today. I am a fighter! I am strong! I am capable."

"I can honestly say that Christen was the missing piece of the puzzle I needed to wake up and take control of my confidence."
"Christen is so easy to connect with and always has a story or thought that allows me to realize I’m not alone in feeling the way I am. She guided me on how to find my own confidence. When I’m in a funk, she brings me back to my truth, so we can laugh about it and enjoy the process."
"Before I talked with Christen, I used to doubt myself and trick myself into believing that I didn't care about my hard work. Christen showed me how to realign my mentality before I raced so that I was able to realize my full potential in the pool. She taught me how to counteract my doubt and negative self talk, and now I am able to approach practices and races with more confidence than I ever could have imagined."

"You always walk away from Christen feeling like you have gained not only a new perspective, but also tools and skills to help achieve your greatest goals, in and out of the sporting arena. God placed an angel in my life when He gave me Christen."

"I worked with many sports psychologists in the past, and I never truly saw permanent improvement. In a short time working with Christen, I saw changes that have become concrete in my decision making and how I view myself. Working with her was one of the best decisions I could have made."
"Working with Christen has been a life changing experience for my swim career and for my life. With her guidance, I was able to transform my mental practice. The one thing that was holding me back became one of my greatest assets in my performance."
"Before working with Christen, my goal of making the US Olympic team was just a dream. Because of her help, support and guidance, that dream became a reality. "
A MESSAGE FROM A MOM
I’m not sure where we would be if Christen had not come into our lives one year ago. Managing the teenage years is stressful enough in itself. The additional demands and stressors of swimming can make things that much more complicated.
By working with Christen, it became quickly apparent to me that my daughters were not only learning valuable skills to navigate and succeed in their athletic career but that they were developing essential tools to help them flourish in an even more difficult arena, the game of life.
As parents, my husband and I noticed our relationship with our daughters also became more calm. It was exceptionally helpful for them to have an outside person to talk to who really understood the pressures of sport especially from a female perspective. Christen’s experience as a former athlete and coach place her in a league of her own.
Words cannot describe how grateful we are to Christen, the true Confidence Coach!
