Empowered, liberated self-care for those who dare to make a difference.

Mama Bear.
Self-Care Mentor.

Ahoy! I'm Christy!

I'm a self-care mentor, which means that I teach rebels, healers, and creatives how to stand in their power and take action toward meaningful self-care.

I’m an activist, teacher and writer living in Northern California (on unceded Ohlone territory).

I believe in really hot baths, unlimited cat snuggles, and collective liberation. To me, self-care looks like setting great boundaries, trusting my intuition, and resourcing myself so that I can show up fully.

And you?

You're a leader. A change-maker, a trouble-maker, a healer, a creative... or you're just fed up with capitalism. Either way, you're looking for self-care that feels empowered and liberating. Not just another thing on your to-do list.

My goal when we work together:

You walk away with a direct experience of your own preciousness—and ready to take meaningful action toward awesome self-care.
