As a Well-Being Coach I help my clients achieve true and lasting change in their desired area of life, whether that be in career, relationship, health, or spirituality.
I find that regardless of the focus area, the underlying roadblocks are often fear-based and the fundamental goal is always the same; to find lasting Inner Peace.
Why Work With Me
I believe we each have the power to liberate ourselves from fear and find Inner Peace. I have done the work to allow healing to continue within me. On my journey to Inner Peace I've had many guides.
If you are ready to make a transformation in your life, I'd love to be your guide.
Inner Peace can be a baseline rather than some far off land you occasionally visit.
My approach to coaching combines the best practices from health coaching and life coaching with latest in neuroscience and positive psychology. It's grounded in the teachings of Ayurvedic philosophy and rooted in meditation and breathing practices, which allow for true transformation to occur.
My coaching is based on the following truths:
You are more than your physical body and the many roles you play.
What to Expect
When I started working with Maria I had so much on my plate, it felt like I was on a tailspin with no end in sight. I was either anxious, depressed and/or unmotivated at all times. Working with Maria helped me get my self-esteem back, to not be so hard on myself (I can’t be perfect all the time) and have the mindset to take the time to take care of myself mentally and physically. It's amazing what breathing does to get the mind under control. Maria helped me get through a very difficult time in my life and has provided me with great tools to minimize the chances to go back to my old ways.

Before working with Maria, the biggest issue I was facing was a constant sense of overwhelm. I have many, many demands on my time and energy with precious little left over for my own spiritual, emotional, and physical replenishment. I would say that I needed a strategy, a step-by-step examination of my habits, tendencies, and inclinations in order to identify my current priorities — as I was executing them — and my ideal priorities.
For many years, I have explored several practices and strategies to keep me grounded and on track, and staying aware of whether I am living in the state I consider ideal, which is authentic compassion and mindfulness. Working with Maria was an extension and expansion of the work I had already done/been doing, with the intention of not REacting but acting in my encounters.
Because of Maria’s approach and her own unique methodology and gifts, I was able to see things in a new light, and that helped create new neural pathways in my brain, which are the mechanism by which we are able to jump out of mental ruts and therefore, habitual behaviors. I was also able to realize assumptions about myself and others that were subconsciously informing my actions and interactions.
I would say that working with Maria is the single-best investment a person can make in their quality of life, that, and yoga.
JANELLE, GRANT DEVELOPMENT OFFICER
Before I came to Maria I was wanting MORE out of life but not quite sure what the “more” was is exactly. After working with Maria I was able to focus on what values were important to me and how I could live out those values more authentically. Maria guided me on how to value myself and my place in this world. She really helped me simplify my desires so I could live out my purpose. Our time together was life changing and I can not recommend this approach more. I benefit daily from the tools Maria gave me.
