Work with Me

Dearest too much, not enough, ambitious, cautious & deeply desiring woman,

Are you ready to stop hiding out in the corners of your life?

Are you ready to identify, honor, and advocate for your needs with shame or guilt?

Are you ready to start showing up as you are, deeply rooted in your own inner guidance and unshakable self-worth?

I’m ready for you.


You want to take your needs off of the back burner and identify, honor, and advocate for them with ease.

You are in a transition and could use support as you find your way to the other side.

You know you need to set better boundaries in your relationship, because you are tired of feeling resentful about being overcommitted and exhausted the minute you wake up.

You know that it is possible to find that sweet spot between work and play, but get stuck in the fear of what will happen if you stop white knuckling every aspect of your life.

You are hungry to feel comfortable and confident in trusting your own inner wisdom, because it’s not really working to phone a friend or conduct a FB poll for every decision you have to make.

You want to belong to yourself – to feel at home in your body and in your life.

This is your invitation to recognize, even if it is profoundly uncomfortable, that you are the most important person in your life.

It’s also an invitation to give yourself permission to stop saying yes to things that you’d really like to say no to, start taking care of yourself as if you’re someone that you love, and begin the deep and celebratory work of belonging to yourself.

What a gift… for myself, business, and community.  I have a renewed love for how I connect and offer love, guidance, and inspiration to my community, my work. Opting for the one-on-one with Mara helped me gain clarity in a cloudy area. I am deeply grateful. – Jen Trulson, Sacred Living

I’m an intuitive guide who provides energetic and emotional support for women yearning to show up more fully in their lives and businesses.

I support women as they empower themselves through tangible action and deep energetic realignment.

When you own your too-muchness and tend to your not-enoughness, you stand in your power as the sovereign leader of your life.
That is my dream for you.

Together we’ll unravel the stories and burdens that you’re carrying – the ones that keep you ensnared in fear and feeling unworthy of the life you want to create.

I will invite you again and again to welcome more of yourself into your daily life.

During our work together, I’ll challenge you to decide for yourself what it means to do enough, to be enough, and to feel deeply worthy of your own affection.

Mara helped me see the difficulties I am dealing with and how I am responsible for my one life. She helped me see all this from a perspective of energetic integrity and owning my own truth. – Tanya Levy

Together we might…

  • Help you set the boundaries that you need in order to navigate your relationships with greater ease and confidence.
  • Figure out how to get you unstuck so that you can take your next brave steps forward.
  • Get to the bottom of the stories that keep you caught in the cycle of people pleasing and over-delivering to earn love.
  • Identify the big dream that has been brewing under the surface of your life with clarity and enthusiasm.
  • Remind you, as many times as you need to hear it, that you are allowed to want what you want without feeling selfish, greedy, or afraid of what other people will think.

And, I will be there to support you every step of the way, reassuring you that it’s OK to do so – even when it feels scary. This is a place where you can show up messy, welcome all of your parts to the table, and cultivate a tender and loving relationship with yourself.

self love coachingI will provide you with a safe environment to enter into deep conversation – conversation that sheds light on your desires, sets fire to your wild plans, and bolsters your brilliantly unique way of doing things.

You will leave our time together feeling more whole than you may have ever thought possible and armed with dynamic and delicious tools to help you keep your promises to yourself – plus a boatload of deeply-felt permission to be who you are as you navigate the world around you.

You will become the tender steward of your life.

You will understand how to deeply restore your energy by reclaiming space for daily self-care.

You will gain a deeper connection to your body, your natural rhythms, and your own personal process for creating change and getting things done.

You will empower yourself through tangible action and deep energetic realignment.

And, you will feel so good about what you’re creating that you will begin to use your voice, stand up for your beliefs, create solid boundaries, and grant yourself permission to adore yourself a little bit more, every day.

Mara has a gift for laser-accurate insight. In our sessions together, she listens, validates, and then always seems to know the exact right question to ask me that unlocks another level of compassionate self-knowledge I hadn’t even known I had. Working with Mara in any capacity is an experience chock full of “aha” moments. Each of these moments sets you a little closer to a life full of deserving and authenticity – Carrie B.

How it works

We will meet for six sessions over three months.

Each session will be approximately 60-minutes long.

These sessions take place either on the phone or Skype, allowing them to be accessible wherever you are on the planet. Our sessions will be recorded for you to listen to again, whenever you need a reminder.

This is not a cookie cutter coaching program. Our work together will be tailored specifically to your needs and your vision of what you want to create in your life or business. You can expect our sessions to be filled to the brim with healing energy work, insight, compassionate reframing, and support for you and your vision for your life.

Our work may also include…

Homework to chew on between sessions. Tools to support your learning. Soul searching. Emails. Crying. Invitations to stretch your boundaries. Getting messy. Big, HUGE celebrations. Fits of laughter. Breathing deeply on both ends of the line. Writing prompts and journaling. Book recommendations. Tiny adventures. Open communication. Supreme self-care rituals.

And, of course, deep permission to be yourself, as often as you need it.

Your Questions, Answered

Can you tell me a little bit more about the energy healing work? I’ve never done anything like that before…

I’m so glad that you asked! As a , energy work is integral to each and every session that I have with my clients. This energetic component allows sessions to be super-charged and radically transformational, and will begin to clear out the energetic baggage that you may be carrying that isn’t aligned with your intentions for your life from this moment onward.

What if I feel so disconnected from myself that I barely know where to begin?

You are in the right place. Many, many women come to me in this position, so you are not alone. During our work together, we will peel back some of the layers of what is going in your life right now to help you much clearer on your next steps and the life that you are working towards.

I own a business but am not sure if I need life coaching or business coaching – everything feels mixed up together!

I often do hybrid coaching with entrepreneurs, focusing both on “life stuff” and “business stuff” simultaneously. I am a holistic coach and believe deeply that how we do one thing… tends to be how we do everything else too. In our work together, we will be able to seamlessly approach the things that you are struggling with, no matter which sphere it is showing up in.

But… I’m scared!

It is really natural to feel a little apprehensive about diving into this work! As human beings we become extremely cozy in our lives – even when we are really desiring for things to shift or be different. I promise you that this work is gentle and supportive. I will challenge you and invite you to take steps towards the life that you are imagining for yourself, but I will also be there to support you, every step of the way.

Other questions?

I want our work together to feel really exciting to you before we begin. So, please email me at about any questions you might have or worries that are getting in the way of your readiness. I am happy to hop on the phone or Skype with you to make sure we are a good fit.

Coaching Love

Working with Mara has been a pleasure and joy. The calls allowed me the space to begin asking the questions of what I want my life to look like. The calls were a sacred holding space to ask questions, to ponder, and to say the hard things that were both true and needed to be said so that my truth could begin to filter into my lived experience. I’m finding it easier (and more automatic) to ask myself “What do I need in this moment?” It was through working with Mara that this question even has begin to be a part of my life, let alone being able to ask it regularly. This work has been a beautiful gift. – Stephanie Durnford
Working with Mara has straight-up saved my sanity. I came to Mara as a heap of exhaustion and frustration, knowing that it was time for a significant shift in my business and having no idea what that looked like.Mara sees me and the work that I do with such insight and clarity. She offers brilliant solutions that are so clearly the next steps to take, no mulling it over necessary. (You know those “ah ha!” moments Oprah talks about? Mara is a medium for epiphanies like that.) I’ll continue working with her for years to come — Mara will forever be my lighthouse in a sea of overwhelm. – Evan Leah Quinn, Web Designer + Rebrand Extraordinaire at SixteenJuly

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. – Tamar S.

Deciding to invest in the business mentoring sessions with Mara has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my business – Mara has a remarkable ability to take my awkward, anxious, insecure business moments and turn them into clarity and brilliant ideas. She’s helped me to take the overwhelming amount of knowledge and business training that I had and begin to translate it into action steps that actually feel doable. And she’s helped me learn that I don’t have to apologize for wanting to be successful. – Elizabeth Bechard, Coach + Essential Oils Enthusiast

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.

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. – Heather Hurd
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. – Stephanie R.
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! – Nicole Gelinas, Life Coach
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
