My name is Cristina, Cris or Crissi - mostly Crissi these days. I am a mother of 4, entrepreneur, certified doula and childbirth educator, certified aromatherapist, and student of traditional naturopathy. I was born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, lived in the Dallas-Fort-Worth area for 18 years and now reside in the Piney-Woods of East Texas.
I am a Counter-Phobic Enneagram 6 and Myers-Briggs ENFP! I love fiercely and live passionately. I'm nurturing, compassionate, artistic, critically thinking, and intuitive. I love all things artistic and creative including photography, writing and cooking from scratch. I cherish the simple things in life and there is nothing I enjoy more than to simply eat good food, have a glass of wine and laugh with friends and family.
The purpose of this website is to share natural wellness information and encouragement so that individuals and families are empowered to make thoughtful, and for those so inclined, prayerful health care decisions for themselves and their households.
My client practice is "Doula-Style," which means that I present all available options as needed and desired, along with corresponding benefits and risks of those options. I then provide non-judgmental practical and emotional support to my clients as they make informed decisions about what's best for them.
Diana Korte has said, “If you don’t know your options, you don’t have any.” There are many healthy and natural alternatives to the toxic foods, medications and household and personal care products that the average person uses daily. Many of these natural options have long track records of safety and effectiveness. It is the responsibility of each family to make the conscious decisions that are best for their own unique members and situations alongside the healthcare professional(s) of their choice.
