About Coach Cryssie
I was born and raised in Lubbock, TX. My husband and I married in Manhattan, New York in 2015 and it's been an amazing journey since! We currently reside in beautiful Portland, OR!
I am no stranger to grief and loss. I have been both the 20-something unmarried kid experiencing pregnancy loss and the 30-something married woman experiencing pregnancy loss. I have had multiple miscarriages and have experienced this unique pain on more than one occasion. It is a pain that a lot of people do not understand, but that doesn't mean it isn't real. I think of my babies often and wonder who they would be. You see, I became their mother the second I found out I was pregnant. I will always be their mommy. I am more than a mother. I am a creator, lover of life, Jesus follower and a woman walking in her purpose. When my babies were conceived, they were an immediate soul with an immediate purpose. It is up to us, their mommies, to honor them by allowing our hearts to grieve them and to move forward in our own calling. I believe we can find purpose in the pain, and I want to help you grieve and move forward.
I am a Former Online Mentor for Focus on the Family, where I coached and mentored women experiencing pregnancy loss grief and infertility struggles.
I am a certified Purpose Life coach through Transformation Academy and a trained Life Coach through Trinity Biblical Life Coaching Institute who is credited by International Coaching Federation (ICF). I'm currently working towards completing my certification through ICF.
