"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."

"Before I met with Coach Christen, I would often find myself so anxious before a race that I felt totally out of control. I put so much pressure on myself at practice and at meets that it became too overwhelming to handle. With the help of Christen, I was able to go into Nationals and World Championships with so much more confidence and so much less fear of the unknown. The physical training of sports can only get you so far. Working on strengthening my mindset around swimming and learning how to adjust the way I view competition has been a game changer for me. I am so grateful for Christen and all the tools she has given me to work towards having the best mindset possible."
World Championships Medalist/NC State
"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."

"Working with Christen may have been the best decision I have ever made. It is no secret that athletes deal with so much pressure and expectations. Personally, I have struggled with anxiety and pressure before big events and I have learned to be ok with being nervous and manage people’s expectations of me. She helped me gain my confidence back. Learning to control what I can control was pivotal to my success.
Thank you, Christen, for being so easy to talk to. You have opened my eyes to many great things and helped me shift my mindset, my focus and perspective into achieving whatever I put my mind to."

A MESSAGE FROM A MOM
I’m not sure where we would be if Christen had not come into our lives. 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!
