“After a few years in the workforce, I felt paralyzed with indecision and unfulfilled in my job. I wanted to make a change, but hadn’t the slightest idea where to begin. Our calls felt like talking with a wise, engaging friend and her insight brought me back to that fire I felt in college.

If I’d offer one piece of advice to anyone considering coaching with Marissa, it would be that it’s absolutely worth the investment. Taking that time and energy upfront will help give you the confidence and insight to help you thrive!”

“When I started working with Marissa, I was feeling stuck in my current situation wanting a change but uncertain of what change exactly I was looking for and how to go about it. We set out, not necessarily to answer these huge questions in 6 weeks, but to figure out a strategy to make change and to be ready for it when it comes.

Along the way Marissa helped me uncover parts of my identity I thought I'd lost, and even some new aspects and angles I'd never identified before. I ended up with a realistic and exciting action plan, a deeper understanding of myself, and the confidence to move forward into whatever may come.”

“Working with Marissa is an investment in yourself. If you are willing to be open, and answer some questions where the answers may not come easily, then you will reap far more rewards than you put in. Marissa provided direction for me in an area where I didn't know how to make sense of all the options that lay ahead. Instead of doing it FOR me, she walked right through it with me

Best of all, Marissa stayed engaged in every minute of every conversation I had with her. Not once did her attention stray. Having all of that focus on ME was
a gift to myself that I've never gotten before.”

“Marissa has this amazing blend of: the warmth that invites you to open up and feel comfortable right away, the know-how to expertly guide the conversation in a meaningful direction with ease, and the wisdom to help you connect the dots for yourself in ways you'd never considered.

I left our conversation feeling stunningly clear about how to move forward with my creative work, and relieved that I didn't need to waste more time spinning my wheels and doubting my direction. I'm so grateful for her guidance and her genuine ability to listen, help untangle, and make sense of my mental barriers.”

Marissa is able to tap into emotions and explore areas in a way that feels natural and energizing. She'll talk through a situation with you and allow you to:
a) feel comfortable as you're sharing your experience with her and
b) ask questions that illuminate new areas of exploration and challenge you to think differently about what you're going through.

Not only do you feel perfectly at ease sharing this time with her, you leave the conversation with the support you asked for at the beginning of your time together whether that's a mantra, a new way of looking at a situation, or a list of action items to apply to your life. Marissa is a natural listener and supporter; she'll hold you up, but she'll also guide you to make your own sustainable changes.”

Marissa makes you feel comfortable right from the start. Her ability to listen makes her coaching sessions feel reflective and truly self-guided through her attentiveness and ability to rephrase and clarify ideas. I was struggling to make sense of a lot of abstract, complicated "what-ifs" in my career, and Marissa was able to help me identify the next-steps for myself. Just by listening and noticing the patterns, she arranges and organizes the ideas in your head almost as you’re saying them so that you can see those patterns clearly before you.

I was at first surprised to hear the decisions and certainty with which I was talking through my concerns, but by the end of our call, I felt more confident in the direction I knew was best for me. Talking with Marissa is like having a diligent, note-taking, conscious by your side when you're talking to yourself, trying to make sense of it all.”
