“I contacted Mary after a recommendation from a close friend and wasn’t sure what to expect. Being someone who isn’t very comfortable talking about my thoughts and feelings to strangers I was apprehensive, but after only a few minutes on the phone with Mary I knew I wanted to become a client of hers right away. She is encouraging, insightful, a seemingly unlimited resource of personal and professional advice (there isn’t a single topic I’ve thrown her way that she has drawn a blank on) and one of the best decisions I’ve made in my career.

Every session was productive and gave me new perspective, with as much or as little guidance as I needed. I’m now thriving in a new job and have the tools I need to guide me toward a fulfilling career for life. Even if I wasn’t actively searching for a new position I would have found her insight incredibly valuable for my future, both personal and professional. Can’t recommend her highly enough.

– Amy P., Production Coordinator

“Your coaching process enabled me to focus my thoughts and represent my skills and values accurately and with confidence. I very much appreciated your sincerity and wisdom in guiding me through the process of preparing for my first interview – that led to my new position!

– Mark, Assistant Fire Chief

“I contacted Mary because I felt burnt out and it was time to make some major changes in my life. I was in a demanding job that left very little of me for my family and two young children. I wanted to take some time away from working, possibly change careers, and reassess what was truly important to me.

Mary’s coaching provided me the insight and confidence to follow through with leaving my job as well as a structure on how to move forward. We worked together on a transition plan based on my core values and goals. I am enjoying being truly present for the first time with my 2 and 6 year old daughters and living a much more centered and purposeful life. One of the things that stood out to me with Mary’s coaching was her flexibility and skill to connect with me wherever my energy or focus was on that day. I had never heard of life coaching but on a recommendation thought I would give it a try.

I am so glad I took the leap to contact Mary and feel I am in a much better space for doing so. I would recommend Mary as a life coach to anyone who wants to make and see measurable changes in their lives.”
