Hello, I'm Marisa

I'm a mental health advocate turned trauma informed life coach whose sole purpose is to empower survivors of emotional or mental abuse to reclaim their birthright of self-love and compassion.

From my own experience, I know that this kind of constant abuse can be detrimental to our self-worth, giving power to and feeding an inner critic whose voice usually isn't our own.


It's time to take back control of your mind, your wellness, and your life. You are worthy. 

You are seen. You are heard.

Thank you for being here.

With love,

You are worthy of love and compassion.

You can talk back to the inner critic.

My mission is to hold space as people find the answers they need to live empowered lives full of self-love and independence. I am here to help survivors of covert abuse (gaslighting, emotional abuse, mental abuse) cultivate a loving, compassionate voice that is louder than their inner critic.

By taking power away from the inner critic, replacing the negative beliefs I held about myself with those of love and compassion, and letting go of the need for external validation, I have developed a life I never thought I could have.

I would be honored to help you do the same.

about me

I empower survivors of childhood trauma to cultivate a wise, compassionate inner voice.

Growing up, I felt unloved and unwanted. I spent most of my childhood and teenage years wanting to disappear, believing not one person would care.

I believed every thought that said, "You don't matter. You'll never be good enough. No one cares about you. The world would be better off without you." And I had no evidence from my caregivers to say otherwise. 

But that all changed when I learned how to love myself unconditionally and fully, when I decided to take charge of my life, and when the voice in my head finally sounded like me.
