Because of her own experiences with her daughter with Rett Syndrome, Christine is passionate about using education to empower other families like hers. As a Pediatric NeuroMovement® Practitioner, Christine sees perfection in every differently-abled child she meets. And she wants every parent to receive support in healing from their own trauma so they can foster the healthy development of their differently-abled children.
Christine also co-hosts Evolving Together, a membership community, endorsed by Dr. Shefali Tsabary, that empowers parents and caregivers of differently-abled children to heal and create an optimal learning environment for their children to explore, discover and express their innate potential.
Christine has also been featured on Dr. Shefali Tsabary's Parenting Mastery Summit, CTV, TVA, Global News, Canal Vie, Rogers TV, among other media, where she speaks of her transformational journey as a parent to a differently-abled child, and how she and her team at Evolve guide neurodivergent children and their families to freedom and joy.Invite Christine to Speak
CHRISTINE’S MESSAGE: FROM MY HEART TO YOURS
As a parent to a neurodivergent child with high needs, I want you to know that I am right there with you. I see you.
Gabriela, my youngest daughter, was born with Rett Syndrome, a rare genetic neurological and developmental disorder that affects the way the brain develops, causing a progressive loss of motor skills and language. Her birth (and the events that followed) set me on a path of deep transformation and growth. After much reflection and personal healing, I came to realize that Gabi’s arrival was the greatest gift our family could have ever experienced, permanently changing our view of the meaning of life.
During my initial healing process, I discovered that the traditional Western model of care for differently-abled children can feel deficit-based and hierarchical. In my experience, the care was structured around limitations (rather than possibilties) and assumed the practitioner is best equipped to evaluate and mandate treatments for our children unilaterally (or with minimal input from either the parent or child). This stood in direct opposition to my inner knowing that Gabi was perfect exactly as she was.
This dissonance between the Western medical establishment and my own beliefs has driven me to explore multiple alternative healing modalities. What I have discovered along the way has been nothing short of miraculous. Working in close partnership with a range of alternative practitioners, I have witnessed Gabi’s sense of well-being and my own capacity to support her on her unique journey expand exponentially. Immersing myself in this work has also given me the tools to support my older daughter, Juliana, whose need for healing support has been a critical element of our family’s wellness ecosystem.
MY EXPERIENCES WITH GABI AND HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES HAVE GIVEN ME A CLEAR VISION FOR A NEW MODEL OF CARE CENTERED ON POSSIBILITIES & KNOWING OUR CHILDREN, RATHER THAN ON LIMITATIONS & OUTDATED BELIEF SYSTEMS
This vision led me to create Evolve Movement in 2018, a multi-disciplinary collective of practitioners that brings together my many years of work with a variety of methods and healers to offer the best in alternative care for our differently-abled children. We call it a Conscious and Holistic Family Healing Approach.
In addition to being Co-Founder and CEO of Evolve Movement, I support children as a certified Pediatric Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® practitioner, offer conscious parenting coaching services for parents and caregivers, and teach professionals in service to neurodivergent children how to consciously connect with kids for optimal outcomes.
I also speak publicly to raise awareness about what it means to truly show up for our differently-abled children, regardless of whether we are in the home, in therapy, or in the school system.
In 2022, I published a children's book entitled, OUR SUPERPOWERS: Celebrating Differently-Abled Kids and Their Siblings. Interacting consciously with differently-abled children in our community presents a beautiful opportunity to expand our pathways for connection by learning new forms of communication. In this book, young readers are guided on a journey to the natural beauty of Calabogie Ranch, home of Rose, a wild horse. There, sisters Juliana and Gabi re-discover and celebrate their unique superpowers.
My guiding light is the perfection I see in every differently-abled child I meet. I want everyone in your family and every member of our ecosystem of care to receive the support you need to heal, grow and connect so that together we can foster the healthy development of our children.See Christine in Action
