Throw away the old rule book and craft a life that's completely yours.


You've been following someone else's rules for your life and it just isn't working anymore. You’re ready to start living a life that feels more like you.

The problem is, you don’t know which step to take, and in which direction, to reach the road of clarity. With seemingly endless options, how do you choose? You’re afraid that you might start heading in one direction, only to find yourself exactly where you are right now, confused and unsure.

About Marissa

I’ve been right where you are and it’s hard.

Between dramatically switching career paths to navigating relationships to making big decisions for myself and my future, I have spent a lot of time sitting in the tension that arises when you’re living a life that just isn’t serving you anymore.

When you give yourself permission to pivot and do things differently than before, it opens a whole new world of possibilities; while exciting, this can also be paralyzing. It can be tough to know how to get from where you are to where you want to be…or to even know where you want to be in the first place!

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m still figuring things out. But here’s what I do know: life is most meaningful and fulfilling when you decide to be unapologetically who you are at your core. 

If this resonates with you, I’d be honored to walk with you in your journey to discover your true self so you can make decisions with clarity and ease.
