I’m Chrissy Powers. I’m a wife, mom, therapist, podcast host, writer, and eternal optimist. I live and work in San Diego, CA. My husband and I have been in an 8 year process of working, saving, designing and building our dream home when COVID-19 hit and threw some heartache and challenges on our dreams but we have so much hope and faith for the future. We’re doing our best to raise good empathic humans: Waylon (11), Zeke (7) and Ruby (4) who keep us very busy!
I do a lot of things and figure it all out as I go. I used to think that was a negative thing but through my own personal work I realized that’s part of what makes me unique. I love helping others come into their authentic self through my course work, coaching, therapy or just reading a blog or Instagram post.
You can find the Powers fam usually at the beach, riding bikes, or traveling up the CA coast! We’re so happy you’re here.
