HI, I’M MARISA.

Don’t love your career, but not sure what to do next? My greatest joy is helping you!

Wondering what career is right for you?

Download my secret list of questions that I personally use with my clients to begin figuring out what career is truly right for you.

ARE YOU STILL UNSURE OF WHAT CAREER YOU REALLY WANT TO PURSUE?

Have you spent years in a job (or several jobs), but still don’t feel like you’ve found your calling yet?

Are you unsure of what career will bring you satisfaction, fulfillment and joy?

Does the thought of starting over feel terrifying?

Have you started climbing the ladder at your company or a specific field of work, and you’re afraid what will happen if you choose to start climbing a different ladder all together?

Do you already know you should quit your job & make a change in your career to live a more fulfilling life, but you’re terrified to try something new?

At least, in your current job, you have path. And it’s comfortable.

In your current job, you know the ins and outs of what’s required of you.

You know the obnoxious office politics. Or the theoretical path and trajectory that someone in your field of study or career typically follows.

You know the downsides of your current job, and you’ve learned to tolerate the situation.

As they say, “The Devil you know is better than the Devil you don’t.”

But you wonder….what would you even want to do if the opportunities were endless?

Would you even be qualified for that new job?

Or capable of starting that business of your own?

Could you even be successful doing something new? Something different?

I GET IT.

I spent many years in your exact same situation. Unhappy with my prestigious corporate job. Living for weekends and vacations. Dreading my commute and arriving at the office each morning. But I stayed because it was comfortable and easy.

I would dream about a new job…

Doing something I really loved…

But I didn’t know exactly what that was or how to go about finding it.

Until one day, my life felt so wrong that I couldn’t stay put anymore…

I suddenly experienced a crippling lower back pain that wouldn’t go away. No doctor could find anything wrong with me. No physical therapy or treatment provided any relief.

At the same time, I decided to end a five year relationship. I called off my engagement because it wasn’t right for me.

I quit my high paying, prestigious job. I started my own business. And I moved across the country.

These were the hardest and scariest times of my life. But the courage paid off…

Now?

I discovered that my greatest joy comes from helping you identify your unique gift, and figuring out what career will bring you the most joy.

I received my Coaching certification from Robbins-Madanes Training under teachers Tony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark Peysha, and Magali Peysha.

Every day, I wake up knowing that I get to help each person overcome their fears in order to take action and live more fulfilling lives.

I coach my clients while I travel the world (61 countries and counting).

And while I still work with a coach myself to overcome my own fears and limiting beliefs (yes, even I still face blocks), I live a life that brings me absolute joy each and every day.

I took the leap. I’ve made the changes. I’ve done the hard work on myself.

And I love helping you find the courage and the self awareness to do the same.

UMMM….WHAT EXACTLY DOES A COACH DO?

“Coaching isn’t simply a watered-down version of therapy. It is a dynamic discipline designed to help motivate and inspire people to achieve more than they believe is possible.” -Tony Robbins

Maybe you’ve heard of working with a coach,  but you have no idea what they actually do or what that means.

Here’s the deal…

As a Coach, I work with individuals who are ready to grow and make positive changes in their lives.

I work with people who are stuck…in the wrong relationship, in an unfulfilling career, in a toxic job, in constant anxiety, in a state of fear, or patterns of self doubt. I hold all sessions over the phone, where I listen to and talk with clients, and help each individual move past their own blocks, fears and stories (which are often subconscious – patterns that I can recognize in you that you may never notice yourself). Through intuitive guidance and certified strategies, I help my clients decide on actionable changes that they can make in order to get one step closer each and every week to living their most fulfilling and joyful lives. I’m truly skilled in this work, and I love the work that I do.

How do you know if it’s best to work with a therapist or a coach?

As a coach, I help an individuals move forward in their lives. However, a therapist might be right if you are recovering from past traumas or loss of a loved one, or the need to be clinically diagnosed or medicated.

TESTIMONIALS

Marisa has an infectious, positive energy that makes everyone around her glow and aspire to be their best selves. Marisa helped me get to a state of absolute gratitude and inspiration that I have been searching for over the past several years – a state that was seemingly unattainable through infinite self-help books & therapy sessions. In only a few weeks, Marisa completely changed my life, encouraging me to redefine my relationship with my mind and myself. She helped me to discover my true passions, talents and purpose.

“Marisa is incredible! She is my go-to woman for when I need a sounding board on career, relationship, and overall life advice. I love that I can talk to her about anything without any judgement or preconceived notions. She asks all the right questions to help me get out of my own head and to see my issues from a new perspective. Infinitely curious, kind, and wise, every conversation with Marisa leaves me one step closer to a new realization I wouldn’t have attained otherwise. I can’t recommend her enough!”
Sherry A.

Marisa has been a source of support, validation, and emotional relief. Her natural qualities of openness, non-judgment, and sincere curiosity enhance her professional coaching skills. She listens patiently, gently encouraging me to identify my own barriers and talk through possible solutions. I never feel rushed or pressured and have always found myself exploring personal topics I didn’t previously know I needed to talk through. I always know that I get the “real” Marisa and that her guidance stems from an empathic and optimistic place. She believes in everybody and never seems to become overwhelmed by what’s placed in front of her. Her grounded nature translates to her conversations, bringing a sense of balance and confidence. I guarantee that with Marisa, while you’re finding your footing and taking steps in your future, you’ll have more laughs than you thought possible. She is sincere sunshine!”

“I decided to open myself up to the experience with Marisa, and in truth, I couldn’t believe how accurate her insights were. She is an empath by nature, and that lends itself to making others feel supremely comfortable in her company. But that didn’t explain how she could tell me things about myself that I hadn’t even figured out how to articulate to myself yet. I found myself talking to her about things I’d never spoken to anyone. Perhaps even things that I hadn’t been totally honest with myself about. To say it was a healing experience would be an understatement. It was probably one of the most cathartic moments of my life. And to be that raw and honest with a virtual stranger, and feel so calm and safe at the same time is a wonderful gift.

I still can’t explain how it happened. I am unsure if she facilitated a true spiritual experience, or if she is just one of those people who is able to connect with others on an infinitely deeper level than most. Either way, the result was the same. I came away from the experience with a new sense of self. A belief that I could open myself up to the world and it wouldn’t hurt. And a renewed sense of self-confidence that I had lost sight of somewhere along the way.

I can’t thank Marisa enough – her wisdom, her warmth and her empathy have become part of the fabric of my life story. I’ll never forget the gift she gave to me, and I genuinely hope I get to call her my friend for the rest of my days.”

Marisa is a great listener, confidant, and adviser. Her innate ability to help others has been greatly beneficial to me. She has guided me in many aspects of my life, whether it be navigating personal relationships or business quandaries. I know that I would not have been able to go as far without her direction. In the past two years, I have changed careers and launched a small business. Based on Marisa’s professional experience, she was well positioned to support me through these life changes. I highly recommend her as a coach.

My whole life, I’ve battled with everything….OCD, depression, anxiety, you name it. I’ve had everything. Recently, I started working with Marisa. At this time, I’m tapering off of antidepresseants for the first time in over 15 years. I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time. She’s worked with me to naturally replace the chemicals that are missing in my brain through visualiztions, and I could actually feel it happen. I’ve always been a pretty big skeptic – so if I feel it, then I know it’s true. Marisa’s got a gift that’s hard to explain. I couldn’t do this on my own – I tried many times. I needed some outside guidance to get through this, and Marisa’s got a gift for it. I would whole heartedly recommend Marisa – she knows what she’s doing.

Jeff Baker | CMO, Marketing Agency | California

“I had the privilege of working with Marisa as a mentor. She’s an expert in what she does. She not only took the time to listen to where I was in the current process of my business and my life, but she was able to provide tangible feedback, resources, and next steps for me to launch the trajectory of my business. She’s also given me true mindset changes. I was overwhelmed and trying to do everything, and she helped me narrow in on strategic initiatives to grow my business. Marisa has a gift of meeting you on your level, reaching you where you’re at, and speaking into that stage of your life so you know what the next best step is. She takes away that overwhelm, and is worth every penny that you would invest in her. She doesn’t just have the knowledge, but the skills and resources to invest in you as a student, as a human or wherever you’re at in your life.

Thank you, Marisa for all of your help!”

Elle O. | Louisiana

“Marisa gave a talk shared  similar story to mine about past careers and “staying safe and successful” while not going for what we really want. It hit right on the head for me. I walked up to her when she was done and basically said “I think I need help and I think we’re supposed to meet.”

We discuss goals, what’s important to me from a high and low altitude, limiting beliefs, currents flaws in my routine, and things that trigger me to seclude myself. Having someone separate from others to confide in is really refreshing. I feel comfortable being very vulnerable with her. Just talking is beneficial, but we don’t stop there. We create actionable tasks to move forward with each meeting, and it’s helping immensely with each iteration. 

I’ve always thought that people saw me as “having it all figured out.” I wasn’t supposed to be the one who needed help and guidance. That’s a flaw in my personality and a limiting belief. I did need help, and now I have it and I’m very happy I do. If it’s something you’ve pondered, reaching out for help from a life coach, I want you to know that it’s absolutely allowed, completely justified, and currently helping me. I wish I would’ve made this decision long ago!”
