"I have known Chris Lyon for 18 years, she has assisted and guided me through many horrific situations. As a medical professional, I have faced numerous, difficult scenarios. With Chris's intelligent, insightful wisdom-I made it through. I have experienced several tumultuous relationships and broke through past beliefs and with her help, I was able to transform my way of thinking and responding. She saved my life!"
- Cindy W. Sparks, Retired Nurse
“I can't say enough good things about the Breakthrough Transformation program, especially the one-on-one coaching with Chris. I'm a fairly self-aware person with years of therapy experience, and I had my doubts about pursuing coaching.
I couldn't have been more wrong. Chris is direct, honest, open, and doesn't pull any punches. She has helped and challenged me in ways that have enabled me to see and work through patterns that I've been repeating over and over since childhood.
I was stuck in the wrong job and the wrong relationship, and both were affecting my health as an HSP. The stress, anxiety, unhappiness, and failure to understand my needs as an HSP were affecting my chronic migraines and autoimmune disease quite a bit. I was ready to listen and make changes.
With her guidance, I was able to advocate for myself at work and move internally at my company to a job that's a much better fit for my skillset and lifestyle, and one that I enjoy doing so much more. I was also able to transition out of my romantic relationship and reclaim my sense of self.
My entire life changed dramatically in the first three months.
I can't recommend her enough. I am more authentically *me* and more at peace with who I am than I have ever been. Chris has my undying gratitude and respect for all she has done, and continues to do to help me improve myself and my life for the better, and the happier.”
"Chris has been instrumental when I needed to make changes in my life. I first met her several years ago when I was transitioning out of a twenty-year marriage. Then she provided enormous help when I wanted to create a new career path. She has made me aware of how little value I was placing on my own needs, and now I understand that I deserve more out of life.
With Chris, I feel like I have an advocate – someone who encourages me to be true to myself and to trust that anything is possible. I think one thing that Chris does best is to help me see that previous decisions had been made out of habit, from false beliefs I had about myself or others. Now I see through new eyes.
Finally, Chris is a real person – we’ve had a lot of laughs, especially when I get caught trying to make choices in line with the “former” me. She does not want me to settle for second best anymore! I am now on a career and life path which I truly love. I am forever grateful to Chris, who has made a major impact on my life."
- Sheila Shuster, Self-Care Coach, Writer
“Chris helped me assess my leadership style, organizational structure, and work flow habits to make changes that improved my ability to lead a national trade association. My company grew from…half
million dollar budget to a two million dollar budget in less than 6 months. I could not have brought the organization
through that transition successfully without her insight and support. Executive coaching works!”
- Michelle L. Freridge, Executive Director
“Chris has made an incredible difference in my business. Her perceptive look at potential problem areas has helped avoid costly mistakes. She has helped me personally in understanding how the employee sees the same situation differently from my view. In this way communication has vastly improved and the staff and I are happier. I whole heartedly recommend her work."
- Dr. Carol McCalment, M.D., NMD
"When I contacted Chris, I had just left my third abusive relationship with a Narcissist. I felt as if this one had broken something inside of me…I had been through years of therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for PTSD. I knew that this was the next level help that I needed. It was as if I had entered graduate school for PTSD and Narcissistic abuse survivors.
During our time together I had several moments of realization that changed my life. I learned boundaries. Chris taught me how to recognize a Narcissist by running them through a filter in my own mind. Guess what? It works! I am happily living proof."
- Ozzy Wheeler, Artist
"Chris has been an incredible source of support on my journey to self-discovery. Her guidance has helped me recognize the pattern of attracting and being attracted to narcissists, allowing me to break free from toxic relationships. Chris has also imparted valuable lessons on understanding narcissists without falling into their traps, empowering me to embrace my empathetic nature and move forward with confidence. I’m immensely grateful for Chris’s wisdom and unwavering support."
- Nikki G. Executive Director
"I have been going to Chris for over a decade. She has supported me through clinical depression, relationships, moving to homes, jobs, and family challenges.
Chris has a strong understanding of general human nature. Chris is able to adjust her conversation to respond in a way that her client will be receptive to her information.
Chris equipped me with tools to make improvements in my life immediately. She has coached me through numerous negative relationships and over time and changed my perspective on what attributes were most important in a partner.
I eventually met the most patient, understanding, supportive, and communicative woman I have ever had the privilege of knowing, whom accepted my invitation to be my wife. Without Chris’s help, support, and understanding, I am not sure what person I would be today.
I attribute much of who I am as a man today and my excitement for the next stages of my life to the benefits I received through sessions with Chris Lyon."
- Brett Lorenzen, CEO
“When I first learned about this program, my only hesitation was finances. I had every confidence that Chris would deliver, I just struggled with money. But I was miserable in my romantic relationship and unfulfilled in my family relationships. I struggled to identify when people were treating me badly and was rarely able to speak my truth. I decided my mental health was more important and I haven’t looked back since. Chris has taught me key skills like how to establish boundaries and speak my truth. I can distinguish red flags when getting to know new people and am able to navigate relationships in a way that is safe and secure, not scared, and anxious like I used to feel, always second guessing myself. My self-worth and self-respect have increased and I am more selective when choosing people to let into my life. I’m protective of me now, instead of looking to please everybody around me for validation. She has helped me with other aspects of my life too. I’ve had breakthroughs with my finances and business. I am deeply grateful to Chris for her amazing work and the clarity with which she delivers it. Thanks to her, I am living my best life yet. You will not regret your choice to work with Chris.”
May Beadle, Business Owner and Support Coordinator
“The combination of Chris’ non-judgmental support, effective coaching techniques, suggestions, and hypnotherapy sessions has allowed me to overcome many tough challenges in my life that had been holding me back and keeping me from moving forward in a positive direction. Chris has guided me to approach things (divorce, family, love, career, etc.) in new ways, and replace thoughts and actions that weren’t serving me well with fresh, new thoughts and ideas that work! I have actually been able to go off of anti-depressants, and my relationship with myself and others has never been better. She truly cares and is dedicated to giving her best to her clients, so that they may realize their best selves.”
