About Dr. Cristy Lopez

I use all of my training, experience, and the latest psychological research to help you transform the quality of your life, business, and relationships. I help you break through barriers and limitations, eliminate unhealthy ineffective patterns, as well as develop the necessary skills for the more successful and healthy life that you deserve.

I do this by taking an active approach to helping you become more aware as well as better able to focus, achieve clarity, and specify a vision for the type of life you want to live. I have put together a unique series of skills, strategies, and practices that help you get more of the success you deserve.
