“Each year during nurse’s week I like to reflect upon individuals that have truly made an impact into the culture and staff here at the hospital. Kudos to you, as your engaging talk during the charge nurse retreat had a much more profound effect than I could have imagined.Your session during the charge nurse retreat was amazing. Not only were you able to share your story, but the way you were able to connect with their hearts made you very real. You walked in as a provider on our medical staff, and walked away an inspiring colleague, one with whom they could identify. You have been in their shoes and you understand the weight they carry. Your ability to cut through the junk and baggage one carries around and be able to have a candid dialogue was refreshing.
While your words were very inspiring, you left us with so much more. It is not every day you are motivated to tears and walk away feeling better not only about yourself but also those around you and be given tools to help strengthen ones endurance to care for patients. My team, both the charge nurses and nursing directors, needed to understand their compassion fatigue and have themselves filled back up. You did just that – THANK YOU!
As speakers we hope that after we have given a talk the audience walks away with a useful message and puts the information to work. I have charge nurses thanking me for having you speak because they now know how to calm themselves down with breathing exercises and stay calm in the chaos of their day. Others who have commented say they are less judgmental because you challenged them to a paradigm shift. You shared a message in words, but you were able to grip our hearts and touch our souls. That is a gift! Thank you for taking the time to share your gift with my team. Kudos!”

“Dr. Christina Charbonneau was inspiring for not only our charge nurses but for senior leaders as well. Her encouraging messages of self-respect and empowerment helped me finally understand how self-empowerment works. The examples she provided were clear and easy to understand for all participants. We appreciate her understanding of the many roles our nurses work in and the importance of teamwork and team building for our everyday processes. Listening to her gave us many insights into how we can change what we do, what we say, and how we can turn these around to make a positive difference in our lives. I highly recommend Dr. Christina for your next event or meeting.This was the second event that I attended in which Dr Christina Charbonneau was a presenter. She reached the hearts and minds of two very diverse groups – one was a community group focused on keeping children safe, the other was to a group of charge nurses and nurse leaders. Dr. Christina provided poignant examples from her own life that held the attention of many attendees. Her energy and compassion could be felt throughout the room. I am happy she was able to attend both meetings and I look forward to her addressing others in our community so we can all work together in respect and dignity. I highly recommend Dr. Christina for your community or business event.
Dr. Christina, you have no idea how much you have helped me. Hearing about your experiences first hand made a big difference in knowing I could do anything I chose to do and that I am only limited by my own thoughts or ideas. Thank you very much.”

“I have known Dr. Christina Charbonneau for almost 10 years and in that time I have interacted with her in various contexts.“As her patient, I have found her to be compassionate, very competent, willing to listen and understand my problems, and successful in treating pathology.As a doctor treating my patients, she has figured things out that I wasn’t able to, validated my opinions, and researched questions that came up so as to effectively treat them; she is open to referring to other doctors/professionals when necessary and generally sees the big picture in her holistic approach to patient health care. She is very well liked and respected.
As her friend, I have found Dr. Christina to be loyal, trustworthy, socially engaged and fun to be around. She is a great listener and gives good advice.
As my patient, she is compliant and truly understands the concept of self-health. She asks for help when necessary. She is engaged in her own problem resolution and wants to maximize her own total health potential.

She is very well spoken and motivating for others. She positively influences patients as well as other professionals and really makes them think about the big picture with a sincere holistic approach.
