Discover Deep Transformational Life Coaching in North Scottsdale, AZ
Living the human experience is a beautiful, complex journey. It's filled with peaks and valleys of pleasure and pain, both physical and emotional. It seems so simple when we're children, but things change as we grow: we begin to form our own opinions, develop romantic relationships, build a career, and work our way through life. With age comes maturity and personal development, but all too often, we grow older without learning how to manage and accept our emotions, thoughts, and relationships. This causes us to get stuck, and for some, they then stay stuck - trapped in a vicious cycle of self-doubt, judgement and negativity.
Sound familiar? If so, ask yourself if you are suffering from any of the following:
- Unresolved childhood trauma
- Grief, loss, and betrayals in life that you can't get past
- Harmful patterns that keep you stuck in a rut, with no hope of moving forward
- Anxiety about your personal or work life
- Anger, insecurity, and stress that gets the best of you
- Codependency and people pleasing-problems that leave you emotionally bankrupt
- Family or romantic relationship issues that you can't handle or resolve
- Negative thoughts and self-criticizing problems equating to "I'm not good enough" and "I can't succeed."
- Overthinking and racing thoughts that distract you during the day and keep you up at night
- Lack of motivation or purpose in your life
- Low self-worth, self-love, and lack of personal development
If you're struggling because you aren't sure what to do next or how to change your life for the better, know that you aren't alone. Millions of people just like you aren't where they want to be in life. Fortunately, your personal growth life coach in North Scottsdale, AZ, is here to help you reimagine, refocus, and rebuild your life for the better.

We All Suffer at Times. Now, Lets Do Something About It
If you're reading this page, chances are you're not exactly happy with how your life is going. And that's okay. You're in a safe place.
Finding the right person to speak with about the personal growth issues in your life is challenging. Some life coaches in North Scottsdale only see you as a transaction - a means to make money and provide unhelpful, mediocre services. Christy Maxey is the anthesis of uneducated, fly-by-night life coaches. She has worked with thousands of people just like you and has built a reputation of helping people as their life coach in North Scottsdale and throughout Arizona, as well as with clients all over the world.
As a former therapist, Christy uses an effective system of evidenced-based concepts, tools, and exercises like trauma-informed coaching, inner child healing and EMDR to uncover true self-worth. Christy's signature system, the Maxx Method, helps develop emotional intelligence and provides life-long skills that will help guide you in relationships with yourself and others.
Remember: you are not broken YOU ARE NOT BROKEN. There is nothing wrong with you. And, it doesn't have to take years of therapy to get the results you are hoping for
The Maxx Method Difference
Many people use go to therapy but see few results. They've tried reading books, listening to podcasts, and maybe even hired a life coach. But at the end of the day, they're still struggling with root issues that cause stress, anxiety, and feelings of helplessness.
Christy Maxey has developed The Maxx Method, an evidenced-based path to Personal Development, Healing and Emotional Intelligence. When you work with Christy Maxey as your life coach, you will spend your time together getting to the root cause of your problems. You'll answer questions like:
- How are you holding yourself back?
- What limiting beliefs do you have?
- What are you resisting?
- How are self-doubt and judgment keeping you stuck?
- How is your past STILL affecting you now?
- Where is your anxiety coming from?
Often, we don't know the answers to these questions without help. Unfortunately, many therapists and life coaches in North Scottsdale, AZ lack focus. They encourage you to talk about your day, week, and month. They get a general sense of what is bothering you, but before any real work is done, your therapy session is over. In the end, you see few results and you're left reeling with more anxiety and stress than before.
Clients choose Christy Maxey as their personal development life coach because she gets right to the issues without wasting your time. She pulls on her vast experience to heal men and women of all ages, using traditional techniques from psychology and psychotherapy combined with results-oriented coaching. Christy always emphasizes honesty, compassion, and accountability, so you get real benefits and real efficiency with her coaching.
If you're ready to be re-introduced to your authentic self, your journey starts here.
Men's Personal Development Growth Coaching in North Scottsdale, AZ
Men in today's society often fight against strong feelings of stress, anger, and self-defeating patterns that keep them stuck in a rut. Unfortunately, many men are socialized to ignore their feelings and inner experiences. As a men's therapist and life coach for more than 20 years, Christy Maxey has the techniques and experience to break down the barriers keeping men from living the life they want.
Men deserve compassion, but they also deserve high expectations and positive confrontation when necessary. Unlike some life coaches in North Scottsdale, Christy's approach doesn't allow men to hide behind insecurity and grandiosity. Male clients choose Christy because she pushes them to live to their true potential without wasting time.
Coaching Men with Relationship Issues
Relationships don't always come easily and we are not taught how to have healthy, secure relationships. Challenges can be hard to overcome without help. If any of the following problems sound familiar, life coaching with Christy Maxey could be the solution:
- Difficult Relating to Partner
- Repeating Negative Patterns in Relationships
- Feelings of Loneliness
- Feeling Misunderstood
Coaching Men with Stress
Stress is the leading root cause of disease. Although men are taught to "just deal with it," that's not the best answer. With Christy Maxey as your life coach, you can address issues with:
- No Appreciation for Hard Work
- Pleasing Everyone Except Yourself
- Exhaustion without Physical Activity
- Feelings of Unhappiness and Lack of Motivation
Coaching Men with Anger
It's no wonder that men suffer from aggression and anger when we tell them to turn off their emotions. Life coaching can help you overcome:
- Aggressive Behavior
- Outbursts of Anger
- Career Issues
- Relationship Issues
- Verbal Aggression and Abuse
If you're a man open to working through your problems to better yourself, there's good news. Christy Maxey's proven, efficient life coaching system can help you be the father, husband, friend, and self that you truly want to be. With the right tools and guidance, you can live life with less anger and stress. And with the right tools, you can focus on finding your voice without resorting to aggression.
Women's Personal Development Growth Coaching in North Scottsdale, AZ
Women are beautiful, unique individuals. But many seem to suffer from the same universal theme - an inner critic that hinders true growth and sabotages them from a fulfilling, happy life.
As a therapist, Christy Maxey spent much of her time working directly with women just like you. Christy combines an incredible depth of knowledge and guidance with life coaching energy, uncovering your true potential as a woman, free of dysfunction.
Unfortunately, no matter what women do as mothers and employees, many believe that they're never good enough. They feel like they're not worthy, not lovable, and not strong.
If you feel like you're unworthy of success and happiness, it's time for a change. It's time to look in the mirror and take care of yourself, not someone else.
If you're ready to reclaim the life you deserve, your journey to success starts with women's life coaching in North Scottsdale. Here are just a few areas that Christy Maxey helps women break free of the chains that keep them down:
Coaching Women Suffering from Pleasing & Codependency
Many women today do everything for everybody else but don't take time to heal or explore personal development. Personal development growth coaching from Christy Maxey can help you address these common issues:
- Self-Medicating to Cover Up Feelings of Inadequacy
- Feeling like You've Lost Yourself
- People Taking Advantage of Your Kindness
- Over-Providing for Others
Coaching Women with Unpleasant Emotions
Many women are unsure of how to untangle the mess of emotions they go through. Life coaching in North Scottsdale can help you manage your emotions and find the clarity and love you need in your life. Does this sound like you?
- Feelings of Shame and Guilt
- Issues with Your Career or Job
- Unhappiness with Others' Behaviors
- Bouts of Sobbing That Lead to Anxiety and Depression
Coaching Women with Self-Confidence Issues
Though every life is valuable, society triggers many women to de-value themselves as they grow older. One of the core components of Christy's life coaching is to help women value who they are. Self-confidence can help by:
- Highlighting Positive Attributes Over Shortcomings
- Finding Solutions to Confidence Issues
- Teaching You How to Love Yourself, Flaws and All
- Giving You the Tools to Assert Yourself Without Guilt
If you're a woman and you're ready for change, we've got great news. Women's coaching with Christy is all about change and focus. It's active and experiential coaching that will keep you engaged and accountable to yourself. The result? A life bursting with happiness, fulfillment, and joy.
EMDR Coaching in North Scottsdale, AZ
EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing, is a powerful technique used to heal people from distressing and disturbing life experiences. EMDR Coaching with Christy Maxey allows the mind to heal from psychological trauma much quicker than traditional therapy methods.
When we go through traumatic experiences, we often associate those events with negative beliefs and emotions like feelings of shame, anger, and inadequacy. EMDR helps the mind reprocess the life-changing event, allowing the client to heal and live a life they love.
Is EMDR Right for You?
Many people are reluctant to try EMDR because of poor results from previous attempts. Christy Maxey's EMDR Coaching includes guided visualization and inner child healing for a more robust approach. This tactic is part of Christy's Maxx Method - a life-changing framework for personal development.
What is the Maxx Method?
You may have received help from a therapist or life coach in North Scottsdale, AZ, in the past, only to fall back into bad habits and self-destruction. If that sounds like you, chances are you never addressed the underlying cause of your problems. You cut the weed but never removed the root.
The Maxx Method is a six-part holistic system of evidenced-based tools, exercises, and concepts, developed to help you achieve maximized personal development.
EMDR and the Maxx Method are not only used for extreme traumas. They can be very helpful for common memories and events that foster feelings of low self-esteem and powerlessness, too. These methods were developed to help manage unpleasant emotions, show you how to find deep love, and heal old wounds that keep you stuck.
EMDR and the Maxx Method could be right for you if you have experienced:
- Social Anxiety
- Loss, Betrayal, and Grief
- Negative Core Beliefs
- Hurt, Anger, and Sadness
- Low Self-Esteem
- Lack of Confidence
Break Out of Your Comfort Zone and Be Proud of Your True Self
The world is changing. People are finally learning how to manage their own human experiences. But we can't do it alone. Christy Maxey is here to guide you on the path to a positive, guilt-free life.

Scottsdale toddler recovering after being attacked by coyote at neighborhood park
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- There have been countless coyote sightings across the Valley, but it’s not often that a desert dog attacks someone.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- There have been countless coyote sightings across the Valley, but it’s not often that a desert dog attacks someone. Curt Miaso’s young son was one of the unlucky ones.
A coyote attacked 21-month-old Zeke Miaso over the weekend at Aztec Park in north Scottsdale. “I turned and looked, and about 20 feet to my right under the monkey bars, a coyote was face to face with Zeke,” said Miaso. “As you can imagine, it happened pretty quick. A frightening few seconds.”
The Scottsdale dad said he was watching his three young children on the playground when the coyote walked up to Zeke out of nowhere. A split second later, the coyote took a swipe at Zeke as his dad ran over to scare the coyote off. “I remember checking Zeke, first his hands, but didn’t see anything,” said Miaso. “Then I looked under the onesie he was wearing, and we saw he had some claw marks on his stomach.”
Dad picked up his son and raced him to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries. According to Miaso, it was nothing serious, but as a precaution, the toddler is being treated for rabies.
Darren Julian is with Arizona Game and Fish. He said there have been 23 coyote attacks on people in the Phoenix metro area since 2017. In most cases, it results from other people leaving food out for the wild animals when they’re not supposed to. “It’s that learned behavior when they approach people,” said Julian. “Now, when they approach people and are not getting a food source, they snap at people, saying, hey, where’s my food? I’m here; where’s my reward? Where’s my food?”
Arizona Game and Fish officials want people to know that coyotes and other wildlife are part of our community in parks and neighborhoods. So, it’s important to take precautions when out and about and be aware of your surroundings.
Miaso knows his son could have been hurt much worse. “Any time you come in contact with a wild animal, who knows what can happen,” he said. “He’s a tough little guy. He’s doing OK.”

Homebuilder buys last lots at luxury community in north Scottsdale for $24.7M

Toll Brothers Inc. (NYSE: TOL) just closed on the last lots available at Storyrock, a luxury master-planned community that has 2.5 miles of frontage on the 30,000-acre McDowell Sonoran Preserve in north Scottsdale.
The Pennsylvania-based homebuilder paid $24.7 million to Storyrock Development Corp. for 100 acres of Storyrock's 462 acres.
The deal represents one of the largest homebuilder sales in terms of dollar size since May 2022 when interest rates started increasing, said Chase Emmerson, vice president of Scottsdale-based Storyrock Development. Storyrock master plan includes 443 homes.
"This is a good sign for the new housing market here in the greater Phoenix area," Emmerson said.
This transaction was negotiated by the Nathan & Associates Inc. team of Nate Nathan, Dan Baldwin, Joe Colucci and Ryan Duncan. The Scottsdale brokerage negotiated all lot sales on behalf of Storyrock, which features neighborhoods by Shea Homes, David Weekley Homes, Rosewood Homes and Taylor Morrison Home Corp. (NYSE: TMHC).
Now, Toll Brothers plans to build 81 homes at Storyrock on an average of one acre each, with some of the homes on more than three acres, said Bob Flaherty, group president of Toll Brothers in Arizona.
Flaherty said he expects to begin land development this summer to prepare the way for the construction of homes in the fall of 2024, with model homes to be open by winter 2024.
Storyrock is across the street from Toll Brothers' Sereno Canyon, a staff-gated community in the shadow of Tom's Thumb and the McDowell Mountains. Luxury home prices range from $1.15 million to $2.93 million.
Featuring three collections, Sereno Canyon is about 50% sold out, Flaherty said.
Click through the gallery below for a look at homes at Sereno Canyon:
Toll Brothers will offer two collections at Storyrock, an estate collection similar to the estate collection at Sereno Canyon and a Manor collection that will have new home designs.
The estate collection will feature four floor plans ranging from 4,150 square feet to 5,300 square feet. The Manor collection will have five floor plans spanning 3,280 square feet to 4,175 square feet.
Every floor plan will feature three to four distinct exterior designs or elevations, he said, adding that it's too early to identify home prices.
"The setting and views at this location are spectacular and nearly impossible to replicate in a land constrained market," Flaherty said. "We believe this opportunity will resonate with our luxury home buyers and help reinforce Toll Brothers' long-term presence in north Scottsdale."
This acquisition will be a great addition to Toll Brothers' other land holdings around Storyrock, including Sereno Canyon and two other 40-acre parcels west of Storyrock at 128th Street and Ranch Gate Drive and 119th Way and Alameda Road, said Jim Daniel, president of RL Brown Housing Reports.
His research shows that Toll Brothers has 37 active communities in the Phoenix market, with 734 new home sales in the last 12 months for an average sale price of $1.15 million.
Emmerson said he is holding onto two custom home lots that he is keeping for the time being.
"This sale to Toll is the last phase aside from a very small number of lots — on less than 40 acres total — held by some original owners who aren't developing their land at this time," Emmerson said.

This Arizona Town Was Purchased for $44,000 — and Now It's an Idyllic Community With Hiking, Biking, and a Thriving Arts Scene
North of Scottsdale, Arizona, lies a little community that feels almost too good to be true. The town of under 4,000 people was once a 400-acre goat farm that the founders bought for $44,000 in 1955.

North of Scottsdale, Arizona, lies a little community that feels almost too good to be true. The town of under 4,000 people was once a 400-acre goat farm that the founders bought for $44,000 in 1955. Their vision was to start a community with an easygoing, airy vibe — and so they named the plot of land Carefree.
Today, Carefree has the feel of a small town, but is close to northern Scottsdale and less than an hour from downtown Phoenix. Because it sits at the edge of the urban area, it's easy to head north into the Sonoran Desert, which has abundant hiking and camping.
And while Carefree's location is one of its standout qualities, the town itself offers a unique feel that draws visitors year after year. It's home to the third-largest sundial in the Western Hemisphere and has a desert garden in the downtown area. There’s plenty of shopping, great food, and an undeniable artist vibe, too.
Here’s everything you need to know to plan a trip to Carefree, Arizona, including what to do, where to stay, and when to go.
Best Things to Do in Carefree, Arizona
Spending a morning in downtown Carefree is a must. There are shops, restaurants, and galleries to explore, but the area’s biggest draw is the four-acre desert botanical garden marked with a huge sundial — one of the world’s largest.
Once you’ve got the lay of the land, head to the surrounding hills for hiking, trail running, and biking. The desert landscape of the neighboring Cave Creek Regional Park is covered in hiking paths, picnic spots, and campsites. Most weekends, there’s a bird tour, fitness hike, or wildflower walk scheduled. Spur Cross Ranch, north of town, offers a similar cactus-covered landscape with trails that are open to hikers, bikers, and people on horseback. They also offer group outings, including the popular Desert 101 Hike. Meanwhile, to the southeast, Brown’s Ranch Trail in the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy is known for its unique rock features, including the impossible-looking Balanced Rock and Cathedral Rock.
If hiking and biking aren't your thing, spend some time exploring the shops and galleries of Carefree. Start your day at the historic Spanish Village, which is both one of Carefree’s oldest buildings and the community’s arts and culture hub. Inside the beautiful white stucco gates, you’ll find gems like the Desert Moon Market, an eclectic collection of women’s clothing, jewelry, home goods, and gifts, and the Grace Renee Gallery, which showcases contemporary paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and jewelry. You also won’t want to miss a visit to the M & E Stoyanov Fine Art Gallery in downtown Carefree or The Lazy Lizard, which sells a mix of new and used home furnishings.
Best Places to Stay in Carefree, Arizona
Like Scottsdale, Carefree has become a hub for wellness seekers looking to reset and relax in the open desert atmosphere. Civana, a wellness resort and spa to the east of Carefree, has been a top destination for many. Guests get access to more than 10 daily complimentary classes — from a desert hike to aerial yoga — and a spa with a hydrotherapy thermal circuit of hot and cold pools.
Just to the south of Carefree, in Scottsdale, is a property that’s worth a mention. The Boulders Resort & Spa has long been recognized for its 33,000-square-foot spa, two golf courses, six dining options, four outdoor pools, and a location at the foot of an eye-catching rock formation.
Best Places to Eat in Carefree, Arizona
For such a small town, there’s a surprisingly large selection of cafes, restaurants, and bars in Carefree. It’s all about healthy eats with big flavor at Confluence, a well-loved restaurant with open-air patio seating and a standout tasting menu — you can choose from four, five, or seven courses.
Those looking to fill up on protein following a long day on the trails should head to Keeler’s Neighborhood Steakhouse, which has a meat-heavy menu and a rooftop deck designed for post-meal stargazing. Meanwhile, for an entirely different feel, book a table at the English Rose Tea Room, which serves tea-time ready fare (think quiches, sandwiches, soups, and salads) in a beautiful, floral-laden tearoom with crystal chandeliers.
Best Time to Visit Carefree, Arizona
Although Carefree tends to be cooler than Phoenix, it's still hot in the summer, with the average temperature in June, July, and August in the triple digits. The best time to visit is easily the spring, before the heat of summer sets in, and in the fall, when the weather cools down. Those looking for cooler weather should come during the winter, when the average monthly temperature is in the mid-60s.
