" I am 25 years old, about two years ago, I tried to commit suicide from isolation and the inability to make friends or hold onto a job. I was introduced to Dr. Christine at that time. She actually came to the hospital to visit me. I cannot thank her enough for changing my life. I continue to work with her. For the first time in my life, I now have a real job, that she got for me and great likeminded friends. I would not be here right now if it was not for her and her programs... I am happy to speak to anyone upon referral. Thank You Dr. Christine for really caring!"
Let there be tea....
The British tradition of a high tea became customary in the mid 1700s as an afternoon meal typically served at about 4 pm. It was actually a meal for working men, because women were not working. It was a way for men to relax, collaborate and stay strong....
It became a customary social event for ladies and gentlemen to get together before leisurely evening events..
It has become a leading social event, for woman to get together and share experiences, knowledge and purpose, to support each other in having a healthy and happy future.
Health and Wellness, self-confidence, collaborating with likeminded friends while accepting their differences. We will also have inspiring female centered speakers, book clubs and field experiences to support each participant in a bright and successful future.
I cannot express my gratitude for Dr. Christine's priceless time in taking my daughter out and spending endless hours to make my daughter become her best self. My daughter has ASD and intellectual disabilities. Christine has gone above and beyond for her and now is launching her into a career. her life skills training to my daughter is immeasurable. As a parent of a child with disabilities, our biggest fear is, what happens to our children as they age out and we are not around. I am so grateful for Christine and the endless hours she has put in to ensure my daughter's future and the future of so many I know. It is so nice to see that someone really truly cares and will go the extra ten miles to get her there, when no one would work with her. God bless you each and every day.
"I wish to stay anonymous, for my daughter's privacy, but am happy to speak to anonymous to anyone who needs a referral.

Depression can be prevalent during medical residency, with long hours and social deprivation as contributing factors. Concerningly, the farther residents are into their training, the more depression rates rise. This program focuses on trainees' psychological well-being and extreme self-care for residents and medical staff.
"I cannot thank Dr. Grimaldi, enough for all her dedication and hard work towards helping me be the best version of myself during medical school. The twist of it all, was that I had cancer at the same time...Dr. Chris, always said, I should write a book " Residency or Chemotherapy, you choose? I think I am on my way to writing that book. Her lessons on resiliency and extreme self-care have made me who I am today. I now own my own medical pediatric clinic and am cancer free., thank you Christine for your wisdom and support. - Dr. Anja Widman

Her dedication, guidance and support lead me to a life of healing and pushed me all the way to be a nurse practitioner. Now, I work out CUMC, and as a nurse manager, and am going to NYU for my doctorate in Nursing administration, thanks to Dr. C.." - Krystina Chirney, NP, PhD pending
"I met Dr. Grimaldi, when I was in total despair during medical school. The first thing she said to me was "sometimes resiliency means to walk away, if you know it will not be good for you in the end. I was undecided but committed myself to her "extreme self-care protocol" I am happy I stayed on the path and now am the head advisory board and physician to the oncology unit at the Cleveland Clinic. Thank you, Dr. Grimaldi, for your belief in me." - Dr. Matthew Owen

" Dr. Christine, worked with me for years through my leukemia and bone marrow transplant. I never thought I would make it to the other side. I was so sick from the side effects, and so stifled by the fear of it all. I also have a twin sister who was affected emotionally from my diagnosis. I learned how to deal with my fears, increase my physical and emotional well -being. She also went out of her way to work with my sister as well. Both myself and my sister are accomplished doctors now, because of her, and have our own practice in California. I want to thank you, Dr. C, for never giving up and for leading me on a path to success, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, that I now use to teach my patients."

As a true conscious leader and owner, corruption does not agree with me. I stand for integrity first. I hired Dr. Grimaldi and F.U.E.L to come in and work with us as a collaborative team.

We access their passions and goals and give them the tools they need to elevate them to their highest potential.
We are raising people not plants. A plant will flourish in one spot, you can talk to it, feed it, water it, and it will grow. People are not made to stay in one spot. People need to move and be ok with change to grow, especially adolescents. I have developed a unique program of "experiential psychology", that will move the body and grow the mind through hands on experience and life lessons. A safe and beautiful place where people of all abilities who suffer from Anxiety, ADHD, Autism, Cancer, Stress, and more, can learn how to be the best version of themselves; by using natural remedies and the arts to facilitate greatness, each and every day We have the option to take your kids out into the field to create a life full of happiness.
Evidence based research resiliency programs designed specifically for first responders and the military. A growing body of research suggests that resilience training along with mindful based modalities can play a pivotal role in creating mentally healthy workplaces particularly with regard to protecting the long term well-being of workers.
Research shows that teens and young adults that seek purpose report higher life satisfaction and levels of happiness. A feeling of purpose in young people has been researched and has been proven to promote better physical, emotional and spiritual health. We will launch your kids into their purpose.
Being in service to something, whether a person, a group, a community, a cause or a belief means that you have chosen to engage without expectation of reciprocation. To give in an unselfish manner has the ability to transform the dark to light. It has the power to heal despair and to keep anxiety at bay. We will teach your kids through field trips and internships how to value others which will teach them to value themself.
Adolescence is a time of traumatic change, especially when it comes to parent-child relationships. During early childhood, kids rely on their parents for protection and wisdom. As children mature, they develop new ideas about themselves and the world. In a world of social media and virtual destruction, kids are escaping from their pain and detaching themselves from reality. We will bring them back. Accountability and Commitment is the key to success.
Empower through improv, storytelling and creative writing. These three modalities are evidence-based practices to promote healing and emotional growth. Whether for Coping Skills, Trauma, Social Competency, Self Confidence or launching your child or young adult into the real world. These types of practices will teach your children and young adults how to engage in the world around us, be socially responsible, make friends and turn their innate gifts into a path of success. We cater each program to the individual’s needs, strength, weaknesses and desires. We want to see the uniqueness in everyone and see their capability. Then we put everyone’s uniqueness into a group where the magic truly begins.
Disabilities and chronic illnesses can be significant barriers to daily functioning. For many disabled people, the biggest challenge of living with a disability is not the disability itself, but the way society responds to that disability. Buildings, classrooms, workplaces, and every aspect of daily life are all structured around a norm. Many disability scholars. and activist define disability not as a deficit or a specific list of illnesses, instead disability is the product of society’s attitudes. Disabilities and chronic illnesses are common. They call into question the very notion of a so called normal or healthy person. Is it really the person or societies expectation.
We have a unique method to bring healthy rituals back into our client’s lives. If they do not have them, we create them. We teach extreme self-care, advocate and launch our people into a happy and successful life. Dr. Christine Grimaldi is the co-author Integrative Strategies for Cancer Patients and has been a leader in chronic illness coaching for over 20 years.
Yoga therapy is a relatively a new method of healing born out of an ancient tradition.
Yoga has been around for over 1000 years. The idea of using yoga in a therapeutic context has been credited to krishnamacharya who died in 1981 at the age of 100. We can think of yoga therapy the same way we may think of other complimentary healing systems, such as Chinese medicine and acupuncture. Yoga therapy is a system that helps identify various imbalances in a person and offers techniques to bring those aspects back into balance. As an experienced RYTT, I use various techniques to help each client find balance and heal with movement, breath work, mantra, meditation and empowerment counseling. This type of therapy is good for everyone. It is useful for the fitness enthusiast, the spiritual seeker, the anxious, the high school athlete, distressed teenager, professional golfer, the disabled, injury prevention, athletic performance and much more. I will design a program to specifically meet your needs.
As a positive psychologist specializing in Autism Spectrum Disorders, chronic illness and disabilities, I have learned so much from "all walks of life", and how many gifts they have to share with the world. I always advocate for parents to actually listen deeply to their children, as they have so much information and education to share with you and others. They also offer you a new and evolved perspective while looking at things in a different bright "light". With the rise of mental health issues in today's virtual and isolated world, this class will teach our young adults to utilize their talents and to take these self-educated skills and launch them into the real world effectively.
This course is a wonderful experiential creative writing, health education and journalism workshop; where they will meet like-minded friends, learn the art of creative writing, evidence-based research and journalism, effective communication skills, overcoming fears of public speaking, and how to effectively create a real blog, newspaper and newsroom. They will also experience field work as I intend to launch them into their future. With certificates in Narrative Medicine and Creative Writing, I have learned not only through my education, but by being Barbara Walters mentee for 30 years. She taught me how to be a creative writer, interviewer, artist, and how to have a "purpose-driven life." Now, I am offering my services to get you or your young adults there. All abilities are welcome. This class is a MUST for daily productivity and happiness to launch you into the "real world" with joy. Our ultimate goal is to aid in connecting each individual with experiential internships that resonate with each participant’s passion. Health education, life skills, and fitness is a part of each class, to empty one's mind for creative expression and self-confidence.

We are in the process of building an equine rescue center in honor of my beautiful sister where all can come and heal through horses and educational workshops for trauma grief and loss. My sister Catherine was a dedicated mother and teacher who spent her career helping students the school systems could not handle. We are building this healing sanctuary and education center in her name. My heart is broken forever but I will continue to stand tall for her and show her four young boys how truly amazing their mom was. Donate now to 13handsequine.org in honor of Catherine Grimaldi Pane.
