Your journey back to yourself begins with a single, solitary step. One promise. One choice to begin the path home.
You may not trust this promise, because there have been many promises along the way.
You may not believe that an easier way is possible, but I do.
I’m asking you to surrender to your divine self, to your higher knowing.
I’m asking you to surrender to your inherent worthiness, your beautiful deserving.
I’m asking you to have faith in the multitude of your possibilities.
I’m asking you to believe that you can trust yourself to follow through, even if you’ve never followed through before.
I’m asking you to do these things because I believe you are capable of reconnecting with yourself and cultivating a joyful, authentic life.
In this moment, you can choose to begin again. You can choose to lean into the deeper, divine part of yourself. The part that knows it’s way home.
This road home is paved by small steps, stacked upon one another – steps so small that they feel gentle as you begin restoring your connection to yourself.
This is the recipe for lasting change.
Joyful experimentation. Unbridled ease.
Change that comes from your heart, not an arbitrary set of rules that you’ve picked up along the way.
The first step in your homecoming is to release some of those lessons and to begin seeking your own.
Your truths. Your stories.
This work is a softening. A reawakening. A education in reconnecting.
This is a ringing bell reminding you to return home for dinner after you’ve been out in the wilderness all day long.
I’m offering you a light. A beacon.
I am offering you a hand.

Big love from previous clients
When I started working with Mara I was struggling with general feelings of being “lost” and unable to move forward with my decision on grad school, along with the constant struggle of confidence/body love.
Working with Mara has been an absolute pleasure and privilege. To feel so safe when talking about such deeply personal issues and to be met with such genuine care, kindness and warmth has been an incredible experience.
Mara is the best friend that listens objectively, reflects what you’ve said, and prompts you to answer the important questions that you know need to be answered.
Mara creates a safe and encouraging space to explore these answers and truly believes in her client’s strength to create any life that they imagine.

Over the time I have spent working with Mara, I have been pushed via her open-ended writing prompts as well as her loving listening style to be more honest. Not just with her, but with myself. I had to examine what routines, patterns, and habits were working, and which patterns weren’t…furthermore we got to the root as to why those habits existed in the first place.
I feel like our sessions are more like secret-swapping, where I am discovering that I wasn’t the alien weirdo I always thought I was. I am starting to give myself permission to be and love the woman I am right now. This journey into cultivating the kind of life I want, digging deep within the self I already am has been made phenomenally easier with the support and care Mara doles out by the gallon. That kind of unconditional acceptance is truly priceless.

Working with Mara has been wonderful. I approached her about a couple of issues where I felt very stuck in my life… and now it feels like everything is ticking along. Mara’s combination of writing exercises and calls worked really well. The exercises gave me somewhere to focus and Mara’s feedback was always thought provoking in the best way.
As I’ve been dealing with big issues, Mara has been both a sounding board and an enthusiastic cheerleader. I couldn’t recommend her more.
- Kristin Milton, Australia
The thing I love about working with Mara is that I always end up feeling like I’ve just gotten a booster shot of energy and inspiration after each interaction. It’s the kind of thing I think everyone should experience especially if you’re diving into the business of working for yourself. Taking that flying leap into the unknown has a giant fear factor for me, and the terror of it all can sometimes sweep me under.
Mara has this way of being my own personal cheerleader without the over-the-top cheers and pompoms. Her coaching is a gentle reminder that that even when it’s scary, I’ve got this. And it helps to know that not only do I have someone in my corner but I have someone in my corner who’s full of juicy tidbits to keep me inspired and excited while I’m at it.Mara is without a doubt a key reason I found enough confidence to finally put my ducks in a row, figure out what I needed and turn my little dream of a creative business into a reality. Her energy is infectious, and that is especially valuable when you’re tied up in the nitty-gritty of the land of business and your life in general.

I just love working with Mara. She holds a space for you to think and guides in a way that is honest and open.
After three sessions I am moving forward from a place of confidence to build my own business. Working with her has also helped me to clearly communicate what it is I want to do. She is a great coach!

Do you have dreams and goals that you’ve never shared with anyone because in the back of your mind you’re worried you’d sound crazy or unrealistic? Do you wish that your family and friends would “get you” and help you live the authentic beautiful life you dream of for yourself? I can see your head shaking up and down… Talking to Mara was an amazing and extremely effective way of helping me clear away the clutter and roadblocks in my mind so that I could open my heart and mind to all of the possibilities and opportunities around me.
Working with Mara helped me understand how to make my true dreams – my big life-altering changes – a reality. Her insightful comments, bold questions, daring advice and brilliant guidance helped shape the way I viewed myself, my goals and my future. Mara is lovely to work with and definitely worth your time.

My conversation with Mara left me with a sense of huge possibility. I felt affirmed and heard-the work I want to do in the world is not only possible-it’s doable! I’ve had some big changes in the past year and I’d been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing, I forgot to notice.
Mara gently helped me to acknowledge what I’ve already done and since then I have slowed down a little, honored my progress. At the same time, I am chipping away at my list of “actionable steps” that Mara sent me after our talk. This is immensely helpful in knowing my next manageable step.One little thing at a time I am building the life of my dreams. I needed to connect with a wise woman who is walking her talk. If you are thinking of working with Mara, don’t hesitate for a second! Highly recommend!
- Molly L.
Talking to Mara was like talking to my best friend. It was easy, laid back. The topics just sort of developed on their own, and I felt free to say whatever I needed to. She asked questions, led my thinking a little, and helped me understand what I was trying to say. I felt understood. I felt heard. I felt lighthearted in a way that I haven’t in a long time.
I would highly, HIGHLY recommend signing up for a coaching session with Mara sometime soon. It’s just such a natural way to work through your thoughts. Even after one session, I felt so much more at peace in my own head.She gave me the opportunity, the permission to just be myself, to feel and think the things that I do without judgement. It was such a powerful experience.
