"I've been to various therapists and coaches and Maria's work is by far the best I've seen. She has helped me feel alive again." ~ R.S., Client Solutions Manager at Facebook

“I started creating art again for the first time in years! I unblocked many of the fears and beliefs that were keeping me playing small. I started to unhook from praise and criticism. And I learned to honor parts of me that don’t usually get airtime, such as creative expression, connection with nature, intuitive thinking and self-care. If you're a smart, motivated, creative woman with a lot of different interests, Maria will help you weave the threads together.” ~ Bernadette Cay, Artist and Product Manager at Twitter

"When I first started working with Maria, I felt stagnant in my creative pursuits and overwhelmed with all the possible choices on what to do next. Maria helped me get clear about my core purpose which lead me to an incredible position at one of the country's top design firms!" ~ Christi Ginger, Designer and Program Manager at IDEO

“Maria has a focused energy in her coaching that I wasn't able to find in other coaches. At every moment, I felt that I was moving and progressing, something that was very important to me since I felt I had time-sensitive changes to make. I chose her because of her emphasis on women's leadership, in addition to mindfulness and yoga. Being a designer herself, Maria truly understands creativity and art and I felt we had personal synergy there. After working together, I got a promotion, raise, and title shift in my workplace from a sales/business development role to a creative/engineering role. I cannot begin to explain how much of a profoundly positive impact this has had on my life so far this year! I also composed my first piece of music and released it on the Internet. This was a hugely healing act for me. She will get you results.” ~ Irys Kornbluth, Musician and Product Manager at Zazzle

"Maria's work is amazing and soul-opening. I am so grateful to be a part of the amazing movement she has created. It has helped me open up and get in touch with my own inner guide. I recommend it to any women who is craving a deeper sense of meaning!" ~ Rebecca Garcia, Technology Evangelist at Squarespace

“I became clear on two primary "non-negotiables” for my next career move: 1) wanting to work under a visionary leader who I respect, and 2) needing an international/intercultural component to my work. Shortly after I became clear, both of those things manifested!” ~ Sonya Fierst, SF Branch Manager, Grameen America

“She is wise, practical, and will partner with you in your desire to become a whole woman."  ~ Wendy Lea, former CEO of Get Satisfaction and CEO of Cintrifuse

"Her dedication, wisdom, and compassion allowed me to stretch far beyond my limits and take big risks. She helped me gain such clarity that in less than three months, I found my absolute dream job! She also helped me connect with my internal world in a completely new, and deeply spiritual way. I feel so grateful. " ~ Kate Lazarov, Project Manager at Sexual Health Innovations

“Maria is such a gift! She has an incredible ability to really see other women’s gifts. Through our work together, my career has completely transformed from soul-sucking to soul-fulfilling. I used to focus on what I "should" be doing to move up in my career, but now I'm focusing on supporting my own clients to explore their life's work on a deep, deep level. Spiritually, I feel like I'm finally giving myself permission to stay on my path with less self-judgement and more open-heartedness." ~ Irene Tran, Independent Brand Designer

“Maria is a very special rare blend of practical and intuitive – a true gem! Our work together helped me revive something very deep inside, my true creative spirit and inner artist. I launched my own creative side project and am now selling my work online! Thank you!” ~ Kelli McGiven, Independent Educator and Designer

“I was so disturbed by my feelings of lack and emptiness that I thought I needed a major career change in order to find happiness. But Maria helped me realize that I am very content with the relationship, house and career that I have right now. The source of my unhappiness was internal – I was repressing aspects of myself to accommodate inaccurate cultural beliefs about what was expected of me and who I needed to be in order to succeed – and I was making myself so miserable I almost felt that I needed to run away and start from scratch in order to find peace. I am so happy that Maria helped me to discover the deeper meaning in the work that I am doing, as well as specific activities and behaviors that honor my feminine nature so I can more fully invest myself in life with the gratitude and passion I’d been missing for far too long. So if you feel stuck, lost, seeking, alone, uncertain or ready for a change of perspective, take the plunge and reach out! It’s the best gift you could give yourself.” ~ Erin Caldwell, Training Director at MoneyDesktop.

"I had been having trouble finding work-life balance and prioritizing my desires when I began my journey with Maria. Since then, (having been working with Maria for only a few months), not only do I have a new AMAZING job, I actually have time to work on my true passion as well! Maria has helped me extensively and has been such a great guide and motivator!" ~ Steph Shafiepour, Accountant at IIROC

"Working alongside Maria has transformed me professionally, emotionally, spiritually." ~ Laura Pereyra, Communications Manager at Better Doctor
