Let me introduce myself , my name is Christina Garabedian but I have always been called Tina. I’m an author, radio show host, advice columnist and certified life coach specializing in relationships.

Did you ever wish that you had a friend to talk with when you were going through a horrible time in your life? I was always told that I am a great listener and give great advice, mainly because I have “been there done that” at some point in my life. If I haven’t experienced it then I can guarantee that I know someone who has. Life can throw so many obstacles in your path and you have to know how to jump over them or learn and grow from the experience.

I make no claims to be a doctor of psychology but more along the lines of a person who cares about your well-being and will make the best effort to give you good sound advice on relationships, dating, parenting and college that is realistic. Having worked previously as a crisis volunteer and in a public mental hospital I have witnessed many complex situations that were a bit scary in the beginning with some luckily having a positive outcome in the end. The advice that I give is just another out look to the issue that you may have thought way too much on and need a second opinion.

Throughout my life I have witnessed so many horrific events that I must admit that nothing will surprise me in the least bit. I will answer every question honestly and with good intentions. I want to see you succeed and prosper. Some of the questions I am given will be posted on my blog for others to read. I will answer in a timely fashion (within 24 hours) but soon hope to have your answers within an hour.

You can take the first step by emailing me at asktina4advice@yahoo.com . The subject must say advice or the email will be sent to spam. I look forward to hearing from you and offering advice on relationships, dating, parenting and college issues.

Hello everyone!

Thank you for visiting my advice blog.  I’ve been so busy recently making a documentary and will be getting even more busier here soon with the new ideas I have in store for AskTina4Advice.

In giving advice, I will not judge you because there are enough people in the world to do that.  I give honest answers of what has or hasn’t worked for myself in the past.

I am a people watcher, I watch and take it all in while my mind is analyzing the situation. I learn through experience and I must say that I have been there done that many times over in my life.  I can say that I have never regretted anything I have done but rather I give thanks for the experience and knowledge I have gained along the way.

If you don’t agree with my advice that’s fine.  Everyone has an opinion and not one person’s advice is the holy grail, it’s just advice. I don’t live with you everyday, I don’t know both sides of the story, I only know what you tell me.  So when sending me a question please give me background and be honest.  If your honest with me, I am honest with you!

  • I am the best friend that you never had.
  • I am the family member you can tell your secrets too.

Your confessions are safe with me!

Thank you everybody for all of your support.  The Bouncing Back Now Radio/Video show went very well.  This was the first time I every talked about  a deeper part of my life and how I was able to overcome the obstacles set forth. The press release for that show can be found at http://www.pr.com/press-release/301570

It felt very good to talk about, if I could help just one person then the show was well worth it.  I feel that I have experienced all that I have in life for a purpose.  The purpose is to help others who may be having trouble in their lives.

Here is a clip from the radio/video show.
