Discover Deep Transformational Life Coaching in Troon, 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 Troon, AZ, is here to help you reimagine, refocus, and rebuild your life for the better.

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 Troon 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 Troon 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 Troon, 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 Troon, 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 Troon, 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 Troon, 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 Troon. 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 Troon 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 Troon, 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 Troon, 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. If you're ready to look inward, find peace, and develop the skills to love your true self, you're in the right place. After all, you've been suffering long enough.

Tucson, Ariz. (March 21, 2023) – Tucson City Golf’s Director of Player Development Landyn Lewis was recently honored by the Southwest Section of the PGA, winning the 2022 Player Development Award. The award recognizes a PGA Professional for extraordinary and exemplary contributions and achievements in the area of player development. Lewis received the award last month at the Southwest PGA Awards Ceremony.
For Tucson City Golf, which includes Randolph Golf Complex, El Rio Golf Course, Fred Enke Golf Course and Silverbell Golf Course, Lewis created the Tucson Golf Program with various player development programs to introduce people to the game, help existing players improve, provide classes/clinics/camps and encourage people to get out on the golf course. Those programs include Get Golf Ready, Operation 36, PGA Jr League, PING Interclub and PGA Family Cup. Lewis coordinates, promotes and conducts all the initiatives, which has resulted in all of the programs flourishing.
“It truly is a blessing to be presented with this opportunity to help grow the game within the Southern Arizona community,” said Lewis. “I always say that golf has a ton of medicine intertwined with it and how lucky I am to be able to spread that medicine to as many people as possible. We have such a diverse group of people in the program, from five and six year olds, to high school, blue-collar workers and retired. We help people develop confidence while learning a new skill, help build new friendships, and most importantly, we have heard how much our classes and the game in general have benefitted an individual’s mental health. I love this game and I want to get as many people as I can to try it and see how it can change their life.”
Lewis has served on the Southern Chapter PGA Board of Directors since becoming a PGA member in 2017 and is currently the Secretary of the Chapter. He serves on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the Section and co-chairs the Southern Chapter PGA Junior Golf Committee. In addition, Lewis serves as the associate head coach for the men's golf team at Pima College. Among his numerous awards received in the Southern Chapter, Lewis was honored in 2018 with the Southwest PGA Youth Player Development Award.
Born and raised in Tucson, Lewis first played golf during his sophomore year at Tucson High School. After graduation, he worked at Omni Tucson National Golf Club as a player service attendant and quickly found his passion when he began coaching junior golfers. In 2017, Lewis became the program director for the First Tee Tucson, where within his first three years, the program doubled in size.
Owned by the City of Tucson and managed by Troon, Tucson City Golf has been part of the fabric of the city since the 1930s. Modern amenities, traditional designs and native Southern Arizona landscapes make these municipal courses standout in the area.

Council committees green light new management, operations of historic Highland golf course

CLEVELAND — Two Cleveland City Council committees approved legislation on Monday that would hand over management of the historic, city-owned Highland Park Golf Course located in suburban Highland Hills. Under the legislation, a newly-created non-profit of local business leaders, frequent Highland golfers and golf-industry experts would assume management of the nearly century-old course. Troon, an Arizona-based company that manages 140 municipal courses across the country, would handle day-to-day operations at Highland.
The Council’s Municipal Services and Properties Committee as well as the Finance, Diversity and Inclusion Committee approved the legislation on Monday. As part of the agreement, the city would contribute $250,000 annually to the non-profit Highland Park Golf Foundation. The foundation, in turn, would pay Troon $66,000 annually to handle the daily operations of the course. Additionally, the city would contribute up to $1.5 million over the first five years of the contract to help fund capital improvements at the course, including the construction of a revenue-generating driving range later this year. If and when the golf course turns a profit, the excess revenues would first go to reimburse the city’s $250,000 annual outlay.
The $1.5 million in “seed money” is right in line with the amount paid by the city in recent years to help offset financial losses at the course. In each of the past five years, the city’s general fund has had to cover financial shortfalls at the course, prompting a long simmering debate over whether the city should cede control of the course. In 2022, the course required $1.3 million to operate while only drawing in $700,000 in revenue. The city’s general fund had to cover the estimated $600,000 loss, according to city financial statements.
Some city council members initially balked at the length of the original ground lease agreement which spanned 30 years. However, the agreement was amended to 20 years with two, five-year options. The contract also gives the city additional leverage to terminate the agreement if the foundation and Troon Golf fail to meet certain criteria.
The Bibb Administration deemed the Highland Park Golf Foundation and its partnership with Troon Golf to be the best, most qualified proposal to come from the city’s recent request for proposals. Although Cleveland Metroparks issued a letter of interest, it did not submit a formal proposal.
Some council members, including Councilman Mike Polensek, expressed skepticism about the agreement.
“I don’t want to see people hurt. I don’t want to get [Council] in a situation again where we are going to have to figure out how to clean up something. We’ve had to do too many clean-up acts around here with this Council,” Polensek said. “I’m telling you: I’ve been here longer than anybody. That golf course, you’re going to hear the sucking sound of money.”
Bonnie Teeuwen, the city’s chief operating officer, expressed confidence in the arrangement and its potential to ultimately end the continued cycle of annual losses at the golf course and, potentially, begin turning a profit.
“We are all very competitive and we’d like to make sure that you guys are proud of the results that happen at Highland Golf Course. Any naysayers, we’d like to prove them wrong,” Teeuwen said.
Opened in 1928, the city-owned golf course has a deep, rich history — and not just in the game of golf. The course welcomed minority golfers before most courses did. Highland was also considered to be the home course of Charlie Sifford, who is known as the “Jackie Robinson of Golf.” In 1987, the course hosted the PGA Minority Golf Championship.
Some of golf’s most storied names, including Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, played at Highland in the mid-1960s as part of the PGA Tour’s Cleveland Open.
The course’s storied history isn’t lost on those that play it today.
“This course is pretty special to me. It’s a historic course. My grandfather played here when he lived in the area. He played with a lot of the old Cleveland Browns players,” said golfer Nate Livingston. “Jim Brown used to come to this course and play golf. It has significant value for the city of Cleveland and it’s where I learned to play, too.”
Livingston’s golfing buddy, Sam Bistritz, said the course has tremendous opportunity for growth, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic prompted many people to play golf for the first time.
“This was our home course growing up in high school. This course, especially the location, has a really good opportunity to bring in a lot of money for the city,” Bistritz said. “I think if you put some more money in and invest in it, this has a very good opportunity to grow and become one of the top public courses in our area. Growing the game is really important.”
Former Highland superintendent Tommie “Moon” Conley, who worked at the course for 30 years, said the course has suffered under city management in recent years, citing the seldom-used clubhouse, pro shop and restaurant. He is optimistic that new management can inject new life into the golf course.
“It’s a money maker if you run it like a golf course. When you have people that run it like anything else, it’s going to fail,” Conley said. “They need to put somebody in there that knows how to run a business. They need a PGA professional in here. They need to revitalize this area here as a driving range.”
The construction of a new driving range is listed under the potential capital improvements coming to the course in 2023 under the new management agreement. Other improvements include a renovated clubhouse, chipping and putting center, as well as improvements to the course as well, including renovated tee boxes.

It's fitting that as LPGA returns to Arizona, the course it's playing is owned by a woman

The LPGA is back in Arizona. It’s also back at one of its most popular stops.
Perhaps it’s fitting that the golf club hosting the event is owned by a woman, and the company hired to run concessions during the tournament is also female-owned.
All that wasn’t done by design, but it does speak to a convergence of events that puts women at the forefront of the LPGA’s first full-field event on the 2023 schedule.
The Drive On Championship will be held at Superstition Mountain Golf Club Thursday-Sunday. It’s the fourth event of the season, but the first three were limited field tournaments.
Top-ranked Lydia Ko and Minjee Lee aren’t in the field but the best of the rest are going to play, as Nos. 2, 3 and 4 — Nelly Korda, Jin Young Ko and Atthaya Thitikul — are set to tee it up, as are Lexi Thompson, Brooke Henderson, Lilia Vu, Danielle Kang and Jennifer Kupcho.
“It’s going to be a star-studded field,” said Scott Wood, the 2023 tournament director. Six of the top 10 and 14 of the top 20-ranked golfers in the world are in the field of 144.
Arizona golf fans will remember Superstition Mountain.
It hosted the Safeway International for five years, from 2004 to 2008. Those events are remembered for the three World Golf Hall of Famers who won there: Annika Sorenstam in 2004 and 2005, Juli Inkster in 2006 and Lorena Ochoa in 2007 and 2008.
The location was a hit for fans, as well, with more than 150,000 spectators roaming the galleries those weeks.
The LPGA returned to Arizona with the Founders Cup in 2011. That event was last staged in Arizona in 2019 when Jin Young Ko won her first tournament in the U.S. at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup at Wildfire Golf Club. The 2020 event was canceled by the COVID pandemic, and then the tournament was moved out of state.
In the ensuing years, Susan Hladky, owner of Superstition Mountain, and her general manager, Mark Gurnow, started working behind the scenes to bring professional golf back to their corner of the world.
One of their first efforts was to try to attract the KPMG Women’s PGA. They aimed high right off the bat, swinging for the fences to land a major. While that didn’t pan out, it did help get them in front of some of the movers and shakers in the tournament world.
“That never quite came to fruition but it got our juices flowing, and we were saying, ‘How are we going to do this?'” said Gurnow, who had several talks with the LPGA.
Then, suddenly, his phone rang.
“I guess it was last fall, they said ‘Might you be interested?'” he said. Indeed they were, even though they had to be ready a mere six months later.
Neither Hladky nor her husband, James, played golf, but the opportunity to purchase Superstition Mountain was too good to pass up in late 2009. Lyle Anderson had developed the site with Jack Nicklaus but fell on hard times, and had to let the club with two 18-hole layouts go as the economy hit the skids.
Less than two years later James, a Wyoming oilman, died when his helicopter crashed. Susan was suddenly the sole owner and operator of the golf club.
She has a strong team behind her, starting with Gurnow, who’s been at the club for almost 10 years and was with Troon for seven years before that. Superstition Mountain’s director of agronomy, Scott Krout, has been with the club since it opened in 1999. He still has tournament notes from those Safeway events 15 years ago.
It’s believed Hladky is the only woman to own a course on the LPGA schedule, but she’s quick to not make a big deal about that.
“Maybe not a pioneer,” she said of her status. “But it’s exciting to think that maybe it’s influential to women’s golf.”
More:LPGA's return to Arizona features stellar field
Her commitment to women’s game goes beyond hosting an LPGA event. Hladky has also opened her course to eight players who have memberships: Carlota Ciganda, Mina Harigae, Dana Finkelstein, Jaclyn Lee, Charlotte Thomas, Caroline Inglis, Jennifer Kupcho and Brianna Do.
Superstition Mountain has been the site of a variety of events including Arizona Women’s Divisional Stroke Play, U.S. Women’s Open qualifying (twice), events for the universities of Kansas and Denver, Southwest Section Pro-Lady Championship (twice). It will host the 2025 NCAA women’s regional.
“When I grew up, it was more of a man’s sport, women got a day a week or whatever,” Hladky said. Her efforts now are opening doors for so many.
“We’re definitely making a concerted effort across the tour to work with more women-owned or diversity-owned companies,” Wood said. “When we bring a tour somewhere there’s a significant economic boost to that town so if we can help support business owners that look like our players, and are as successful as our players, that’s a win for all of us.”
Superstition Mountain’s membership is well north of 400. Last November, the members raised $80,000 for Sunshine Acres, a local charity that provides for homeless children. The membership is taking to the LPGA event, too, with many of them making up the volunteer crew of about 400 people.
The Drive On Championship is owned and operated by the LPGA and has been held in other states previously. The tournament for now is only slated for 2023 but if all goes well, who knows?
“We hope this goes well and the event returns in 2024,” Hladky said.
“Success for us is to bring the tour back to the fans of Phoenix. Have great crowds, great weather, competitive rounds,” said Wood. “We’ll crown a champion next Sunday and take a look at things and see how we can improve next time and see where the ’24 schedule develops.”
