What Our Clients Are Saying…

"I found Christal's Steps & Stages on social media and heard the artist, the advocate, and the activist all came together in one beautiful mentoring voice. Through listening to Christal's monologues I have come to appreciate that Christal possess a rare combination of humility, honesty, and compassion. She is a brilliant and embodied artist, and to know her is to seek to be the same - living in truth, living in creativity, and following a path of self and community discovery. She is a gem and I have the utmost respect for her craft and her leadership."

Mary McCarthy, Higher Education Administrator

"I am wholeheartedly grateful for the time, energy, support, and spirit that Christal devoted to working in solidarity with us throughout our four-week course. She not only was a phenomenal course facilitator, but she also molded a space which made me feel wholly welcome to express myself in an unguarded way in the company of my peers. This is tough to do over a Zoom call; Christal nailed it."
