My Offerings

R

Reimagine

Feeling overwhelmed, unfocused, and overly emotional—you know you have to change because you can’t take it any more. Reimagine your life from this turning point, when you’re both ready to change and willing to take a hard look at what’s not working any more.

R

Reset

Once we identify how your thoughts, feelings, and actions have been contributing to your stress and exhaustion, you’ll begin to break free of behaviors and habits that have been working against you. We fix attitudes that deplete energy and reset with positive strategies to lift you up rather than tear you down.

R

Reinvent

Integrating the practical lessons and healthy patterns of feeling, thinking, and behaving into your daily life enables you to reinvent yourself. You’ll gain the ability to create an island of calm, clarity, and control you can summon up at will—and sustain regardless of the whirlwind around you.

About Me

Hi!

I used to work a high-level corporate job, earning a six-figure income. To get to that level meant I’d worked 80-90 hours a week for years. I used to love my job, but the unrelenting pressure and expectations to always do more and do it better took a huge toll on me. I was completely married to my work with no outside life, and I was completely burned out. I dreaded going to work every morning.

On the outside, I looked like a great success, but on the inside, I was a mess—totally miserable. And I couldn’t figure out what to do about it because I was so overwhelmed and exhausted.

One Friday night I was stuck late at the office, trying to finish up work my boss had thrown at me at the last minute so he could have a long weekend. I suddenly realized that I was the only one in the building—not just that night, but every night. And I also realized that it wasn’t really my boss driving me insane. It was me. And it had to change.

Eventually I took all my savings and left the company, took off a few years to work on myself to unravel the stress, the burnout, and the emotional roller coaster I’d been on. Through different techniques and after a slew of trainings, working with coaches, travelling and soul searching, I created a life that was designed to nourish me, put the focus on my wellbeing, and gave me the inner peace that I never knew was possible--which gave me the wings to start my own burnout recovery program for others like myself.

I don’t want it to take you years to get relief, like it did for me. That’s why I’ve created my program to fast-track deep, practical, and lasting change for you. The calm, clarity, and control I experience every day can be yours.

My Clients

Meghan R.

“Marcy and I met about six years ago & little did I know that, in each conversation, she was helping me to see what already existed within me. She has an uncanny ability to observe an issue from all angles. While she’ll never directly tell me what to do, unless I ask, she has the ability to plant the seed of an idea in my mind that often leads to the best choice. A constant source of grounding, peace, & unique perspective, Marcy provides advice & subtle direction when I need it most (but don’t know I need it!). She is direct, with softness, & empowers me to make the best decision for my own well-being, & then by extension, my family. I would recommend Marcy’s coaching for any endeavor: personal or professional. You won’t find another person as prepared to help you figure out your best life.”

Janet S.

“I was in a very dark place. I’ve been at my job for 33+ years, feeling stuck, the velvet handcuffs. I was unhappy—not liking what I did for a living, not enjoying any aspect of my personal life any longer. It started to affect my physical health, my mental well-being. Well, Marcy really turned that around for me. She gave me the tools that I didn’t have in my toolbox to deal with those daily frustrations, to deal with the overwhelming negativity. One conversation with Marcy and I shifted my perspective in a way that was a complete game-changer. I was able to get up and go to work the next day with new insights and new tools that I didn’t have prior to working with Marcy. This is a heartfelt thank you and a heartfelt recommendation because what she did for me was truly life-changing.”

Jennifer S.

“Marcy’s super power is her ability to see through the clutter and get to the heart of the actual issue that needs to be solved, & with a road map. She really helped me focus. As the calm voice of reason, Marcy has helped me personally as well as professionally. Not only did her direction give me clarity and motivation, but also her coaching has helped me create products that have sold millions of dollars. I now have the skills & confidence to reach my goals–AND I have reached them. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her.”

Tatyana G.

“Before I worked with Marcy on transformation coaching, I was struggling with finding my bigger purpose in life. I was looking for the direction and who I want to become, and it wasn’t until I started working with Marcy that I was able to get clarity on what I want to do. Marcy helped me experience a breakthrough in listening deeply to my intuition and identifying the work I’m called to do. Through just one guided visualization, she helped me realize what kind of legacy I want to create and leave in this world and how I can do this. The sense of urgency that came with experiencing the legacy exercise was so real that it woke me up to be my better self. I feel she’s unlocked the keys to the next level in my life. Thank you, Marcy!”

Claire M.

“I wanted to say how much I benefited from Marcy’s program. It was amazing. I came across her program at a time in my life when I was really struggling. I was going through a lot and the issues I was having spilled into my life in the areas of emotional eating, stress eating, anxiety, and lack of self-care. What I was looking for was a lot of help to not just manage these things, but get beyond them. Marcy gave me a lot of tools—practical things I could use in my everyday life. I was really looking to be more mindful about what I was eating, how I was eating, and it has really changed my life. I was able to change everything I was doing and improve my nutrition, my body confidence, the way I view food, and the way I’d been eating. All of that has done a wonderful thing for my life. I have loved your program, and it has changed my life. It’s been a godsend. I’m extremely grateful and can’t recommend Marcy highly enough.”

Emma J.

“For me the best thing about working with Marcy was the way she would help me get perspective on a situation. It wasn’t like she was telling me what to do. She didn’t have one set formula that she laid on me. She truly listened to me, in a way that I’m not sure anyone ever has before. I felt heard. Like she really saw me, outside of who I had become at work. She saw the inner me that’s been trying to get out. She was able to help me through creative exercises and questions she asked, and it was done in a way that I was able to step back and decide on a response rather than just reacting emotionally. Just gaining that ability to pause, step back, and realize that I have choices about how to respond was really huge. Interestingly, it helped with my self-esteem too. Getting the ability to take the reins in my own hands was hugely beneficial, and for that, I’m very grateful. I feel calm and in control of my own life again.”
