Meet Cris

Recognized by Glamour Magazine as 'Hometown Hero', Cris Linares is a passionate advocate for modern women’s wellness and empowerment for more than 20 years.

International Women’s Coach, Brazilian Psychologist, and proud Midwest messy mom of 4, Cris  is the founder of Standup Therapy and creator of DIVA DANCE Therapy. She is also a certified Health and Emotional Coach from the International Coach Federation, Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Program and studied Cognitive Therapy at Harvard University.

Her pioneering work has been recognized and published in Shape, Marie Claire, FOX and Women’s Health, and she has brought her message of faith, fearlessness and fiesta to esteemed stages, including two TEDx talks.

Linnares’ life took a 180 when she said “tchau” to her passionate culture to marry her “Midwest Prince Charming” from Fargo - whose definition of romance used to be taking out the trash… don’t worry he’s learned! After moving from the Tropicals to the Tundra - besides the cultural and climate shock - Cris faced postpartum depression, obesity, lack of passion and chronic anxiety.

As recovering perfectionist and former atheist psychologist turned “ God’s Groupie” Cris started on a mission to get her health and groove back. It was in this “Act 2” that she discovered how psychology and  faith could help her to ditch perfectionism, unleash passion, reclaim pleasure and find peace in her crazy vida loca. Today though her workshops, books and private coachings, Cris inspires women from many walks of life to overcome the biggest F Bomb...FEAR and create a life full of freedom, faith and fiesta!  

 

 

 

 

"CRIS HAS AN EXTRAORDINARY WAY OF CONNECTING WITH WOMEN FROM MANY WALKS OF LIFE... SHE IS ONE COLORFUL WOMAN - NOT JUST BECAUSE OF HER ENTHUSIASTIC SMILE, EXOTIC ACCNET AND LOVING PERSONALITY - BUT BECAUSE SHE KNOW LOSS, LOW SELF - ESTEEM, DEPRESSION, REJECTION, AND THE POWER TO REINVENT HERSELF."

Blessed are the women who could care a less about what others think,
for theirs is the kingdom of freedom.
