Christy is a Personal Development Life Coach and is on a mission to spread the valuable information of the power of true self-love. She says, "We misunderstand self-love because we are taught to misunderstand it." Unfortunately, she has seen the devastating effects of this misconception and is on a mission to change it. 

She has a passion in working with men and women who want to feel better about themselves, move past negative, self-defeating patterns and live the life they long for. 

She specializes in working with women who struggle with feelings of insecurity, anxiety, fear, loneliness, not trusting their decisions, people-pleasing and never feeling good enough. She also specializes in working with men who are struggling with anger, stress, and relationship issues.

After twenty years as a psychotherapist working with thousands of men and women struggling with many common themes, Christy moved into Personal Development Coaching and developed an efficient and effective METHOD to help you get un-stuck and positively change the relationship with the most important person in your life: YOU!

She is the author of The Maxx Method: How to Love Yourself and Become Who You are Meant to Be and co-author of The Mindful Dating Journalboth available on Amazon.  She is now sharing her METHOD with men and women all over the world and wants YOU to have the opportunity to make change as effectively, efficiently and affordable as possible!

Although a former therapist, Christy Maxey's Coaching Program, and the Maxx Method are not meant to treat Mental Health Illnesses, Disorders or Diagnoses.  Christy Maxey does not evaluate, perform assessments or treat mental health disorders/illness or mental health diagnoses. 

Christy works with individuals and couples who are not getting their needs met in relationships, who want a deeper connection with their partner, a healthier connection with themselves, or who feels stuck and unsure of how to move forward. She helps both people gain clarity on their needs, gain compassion toward their partner and themselves and become more empowered as an individual; ultimately creating the life they dream of. 

She helps individuals gain clarity in what they are wanting in their life and their relationship with themselves. Christy is compassionate but does not sugar coat things, and she will be bold, direct, honest. She doesn't allow you to stay stuck in old patterns of insecurity or grandiosity. Christy guides you through the process in order for you to get the results you want. With 20 years of experience as an individual and family therapist, and as a graduate of Arizona State University, she works with clients in office (Phoenix, Scottsdale, Arizona) online throughout the world via Zoom. Christy is Gestalt certified and is trauma informed and trauma trained. She integrates mindfulness, visualizations, gestalt exercises, inner child healing and other experiential techniques that help people make progress much quicker.

Christy's work is an integration of knowledge from psychology, several years in the Mental Health field, and the directive, solution-focused approach that Coaching provides. Once you learn the skills, the learning is lifelong.


When I came to Christy, I had been struggling my whole life with no self-confidence, bad self-image, being a people-pleaser, fear of doing things that should have brought me happiness, fear of dying, depression and anxiety. After working with Christy, they are now manageable and in a lot of cases, completely gone. I am so much happier and my ability to handle extreme stress, which we all experience in this life, has greatly increased. Christy is very skilled and I would say gifted in helping people with her tools and ability to identify and help you with lifetime issues and struggles. Honestly, I can say without hesitation, she saved my life and I am grateful that I was lead to her."
