The truth is, these responsibilities are EXHAUSTING, and sometimes take away from your ability to connect with your child heart-to-heart when you’re at home. A part of you wonders if an outcomes-based approach is even the right path for your family. Is it possible that there is another way?
Plus, since the journey with your special needs child began, everything feels like a whirlwind. Speaking of which, what about YOU? How is your mental and emotional health? Do you have the skills and support you need to fully embrace your life as the parent of a special needs child? And are you able to take care of yourself so you can be fully present for your child?
Chances are, the answer is NO.
What if you stepped into an environment where practitioners understand the enormous responsibilities associated with caring for a special needs child and communicate sensitively about in-between session assignments, where you shift from being a one-size-fits-all scheduler and aide to a loving witness to your child’s natural growth and development? And most important, what if there were space and support for YOU TO HEAL?Book Christine
Christine understands what you are going through.
She’s been in your shoes. Inspired by her own journey with her special needs daughter, Gabi, Christine is passionate about offering NeuroMovement® and conscious parenting coaching services.
Today, Christine offers private services for the entire family that provide a safe, nurturing environment for children and adults alike. Through processes that encourage clients to drop into a heart-centered space, Christine focuses on non-verbal communication, acknowledging and celebrating inherent gifts and interests instead of focusing on the areas where there’s room for “improvement”. Christine’s approach models new pathways for the radical acceptance of special needs children and their families.Contact Christine
Christine regularly reminds parents, caretakers and practitioners that the energy behind your connection with any child (or adult) is more important than the technique.
During the early years of her journey with her daughter, Christine gained an important insight: by investing in her own inner work, she healed old wounds that had been brought to the surface after Gabi’s birth. This process was transformative, teaching Christine to see, hear, value, and support Gabi on her unique path, and freeing her to accept and celebrate Gabi exactly as she is.
Christine is a certified NeuroMovement® Practitioner and Conscious Parenting Coach, offering individual sessions and group workshops tailored to meet the unique needs of your entire family.
Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® (1-1 sessions for everyone in your family)
Using Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® techniques that draw on the latest neuroplasticity research, Christine invites children and adult clients alike to embrace their FREEDOM to create new neural pathways according to their own natural rhythms. The work stimulates fine and gross motor skills, facilitates improved speech, emotional awareness and expression, interactions with others and the environment, and more. Her approach allows Christine to co-create sessions with the clients, giving them the freedom to integrate and apply whatever aspects of the work resonate.
Whether anxiety is a part of your family’s everyday reality, you want to connect more deeply to your body, or you feel overwhelmed or anxious and long to reconnect with yourself so you can feel again, Christine’s NeuroMovement® services provide a safe container for uncovering the blocks that are standing in the way of you and your family accessing your highest innate wisdom and potential.
Benefits of ABM

- Reduced levels of anxiety
ABM is among the few therapies to have adapted treatments to reflect the awareness that the brain and body are not separate entities. ABM creates the conditions for the brain and body to work in concert to make life-changing results possible in physical, emotional, cognitive, and creative performance. Especially important with ABM is the idea that increasingly complex movements can drive positive changes in the brain (rather than the other way around).
CONSCIOUS PARENTING COACHING
(1-1 sessions for parents and caregivers)
Conscious Parenting Coaching teaches you to understand your own triggers, set boundaries rather than impose discipline, and free your child from the need to gain your approval. Conscious Parenting Coaching turns the lens inward to help you identify your own past trauma and wounding that may be getting in the way of seeing your child as whole and divine in the present, and is highly effective with differently-abled children.
Whether you are seeking deeper self-healing around your child’s special needs diagnosis, looking to parent more intentionally or want more tools to support your child to discover and express their innate potential, Conscious Parenting Coaching can open new avenues for a cleaner, more heart-centered connection with yourself and your child.
WORKSHOP: Conscious Parenting for the Special Child (for Parent Groups)
In this workshop (available in-person or virtually), you will receive an introduction to Conscious Parenting and learn how to support your own healing while helping your special child discover and express their innate potential. The workshop will help you gain a better understanding of the correlation between your own healing and your ability to truly see and support your child in the ways they need it most. Note: Length and format can be adapted to meet the unique needs of your group.Schedule a session with Christine today.
