Partners in life and business, our mission is to help you develop a transformative connection with yourself through embodying your core values, practicing self-compassion, and living your purpose. We are honored and grateful that you are here and believe you have the capacity to shift your experiences and make the desired changes in life that you seek for the goal of realizing your purpose and the gifts that only you can offer the world. This is more than your typical life coaching.
When you develop a deeper understanding of the parts of you that once served to protect you, we can work this new knowledge, honor these parts for the lessons they were meant to teach you, and build upon the inner strengths you already have in your core.
Whether an individual, couple, or CEO integrating a team of leaders, our individual and group programs are rooted in the innate belief that you have the capacity to shift your experiences, challenge your negative beliefs, and make the changes you desire to live an authentic life!
Christine Vargo is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), certified gestalt therapist, and certified Daring Way™ facilitator–clinician. These approaches fit together with the perspective of integrating and living from a genuine and authentic place. Her work is rooted in the innate belief that you can practice living with intention and live your life in full expression!
As a Certified Professional Coach and artist, Josephine Cardin-Vargo, CPC, ELI-MP helps clients consciously connect with their core thoughts and emotions, working from the inside out, to recognize and breakthrough what is holding them back from manifesting success through a combo of coaching, spiritual work, and creativity. She holds a masters in international communication, a marketing strategy certification from Cornell University, and is a certified Master Practitioner of the Energy Leadership™ (ELI) Index Assessment.
The work we do is not just a business and a passion, it’s lessons learned from our own journey’s of doing the deeper inner work to connect to our inner voices and develop curiosity, awareness, self-trust, discernment, and self-compassion. Where did that lead us? To find our purpose in life. For Christine, that meant social-work and becoming a psychotherapist. For Josephine, that meant working as an artist telling stories that connect humanity.
Different backgrounds and different lives, decades of self-discovery, graduate school, and experiencing life, we both developed individual passion projects. For Christine, that was a transformation program that eventually became Full Expression. For Josephine, that was a documentary portraiture series that eventually became The Human Condition. These projects developed not only from the work we were doing, but from a need and drive to help people find their voices and connect to each other on our shared experiences of being human. For us both, despite the passion behind the work we were creating, there was always a “missing piece.”
And then it happened. Not a day earlier could have been possible, every choice we made, every lesson learned, every minute put into the inner growth work, and every intention set in being ready to find one another, the universe (and Hinge) listened, and brought us together.
And when we came together, so did our projects. It didn’t take long (I’m talking first date) for us to share our passions. Weeks later, as naturally as we came together, our dreams so magnetically did too and Full Expression: The Human Condition (FEHC) emerged. Our first creation, our flagship 10-week Collaborative Group Healing program FEHC. Our mission: if we better ourselves, we better our community, our country, and our world. Our future: more groups, a community of FEHC participants, a podcast, a book, and retreats.
Welcome! It's nice to meet all of you!
