"My confidence in my skills as well as how I perceive my internal and external environment has changed tremendously. Having confidence and belief in myself that I am capable of achieving a goal or dream I set has really changed my perspective, especially when I put in the work. It is a wonderful feeling. My coach, Christina, correlated things in her own life with situations going on in mine to help give a better perspective, and being able to relate to someone else helped me feel less alone. My coach would also have me take time to reflect on all the positive things that happened between our sessions, and being able to focus on good vibes when you seem to be in a world of nothing but bad makes the world of a difference, especially when you suffer from anxiety and depression.
I'd recommend my coach to any goal oriented individual seeking advice in healthier diets and the pursuit of general wellbeing."

"Highly recommend Christina and The Green Spatula. I added pounds (the pregnant look on a guy is just not right!), was not active and extremely stressed. I was drawn to Christina's personal health journey and transformation, but figured it took too much work and wouldn't work for me. But there was something different and genuine ... so I took a leap of faith. I'm not even halfway through my sessions and WOW what a positive difference I am already seeing - I'm making healthier food choices, am dropping the weight (yep, good bye gut!) and feel more energetic. I look forward to seeing future positive changes. Christina's demeanor and approach is casual, yet assertive to keep me accountable. Love her motivations and recommendations for improving. Thanks for making a personal difference in such a short time!"

"Christina helped me reach my goals by treating me with kindness and remaining non-judgemental; giving me realistic suggestions specifically for me and pertaining to my goals; giving me positive feedback, encouragement and sincere accolades when a step toward a goal was taken or a goal was achieved; gave supportive and, again, non-judgemental feedback when there was difficulty.
I have been able to keep a regular yoga practice/schedule; am sleeping better, choosing and eating more nutritional foods that agree with my body, giving me energy and helping me focus. The most significant overall change I have noticed has been I am musch happier, more grateful and more at peace.
Christina is a mindful listener; a skilled educator using her knowledge and personal experiences to gently guide me to a new and better sense of self, a healthier relationship with myself and food. She is sensible, realistic, compassionate, not overbearing, honest and kind. I would recommend the 6-month coaching program to anyone who wants to have a healthier relationship with themselves, their body and the food they eat; anyone who wants to be healthier physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is the best investment I have ever made for myself and gift given to myself.
