Cristie Ritz King, PsyD, RYT
A million years ago I started The Traveling Circus as a personal blog to write about my family and our appearance on HGTV’s Real Estate Intervention. Our brush with TV fame coincided with an out of state move so I needed a way to keep everyone in our large extended family connected. What started out as daily stories and birthday letters to my kids (that are all still here for them as they grow up and need a little time capsule) has morphed into a place where people come for a supportive parenting community. When I finished training as a trauma therapist and psychologist, what was once just a blog has become an extension of the work I do. No two families look alike and happiness is something we have the power to define. I hope Reinvention Family and the work I do here is used as a resources for parents trying to find their own homegrown happiness. If you’re interested in group coaching, courses or retreats, learn more about those on their own pages. For additional services stay here.
My passion for families and children, combined with years of research and schooling in education and psychology make me the ideal trainer for parents, and teachers about parenting and family mental wellness.
I have spoken to:
- School faculties
- High school health classes
- Parent Groups
- Small businesses owners
About Topics Such as:
- Trauma informed teaching
- Parenting through life challenges
- Successful Relationships After a Baby
- Sexual consent and what to expect from college
- Working parent wellness
- Managing holiday stress
If you are hosting an event, looking for staff development training or are in need of a dynamic presenter for a difficult topic, I am available.
As a Certified Mindfulness and Registered Yoga Teacher, I have worked with small companies and large corporations to run mindfulness training that benefits employees and employers alike. Learning how to tune in and use mindfulness and breathwork to manage stress maximizes performance and mental well-being.
I love to share what works with the people who come here looking for guidance. It is my desire to maintain my integrity and authenticity at all times and I will only support products and services that I can wholeheartedly endorse. To that end, I occasionally work with brands to share about their products for compensation.
(Compensation is based on the value of product and scope of work. I work with brands individually in each case.)
