little bent, not broken
Perfectionism & Reparenting Recovery
Read about past client experiences!
Marisa was a delight to work with from day one. She has this unique combination of curiosity and passion that really creates a place of true growth. I have to say, she has the most calming presence and I never felt judged as she listened to me and my sometimes tragic circumstances. I felt head, understood and yet never pitied. Authentic to the core, she really cares about her clients and it shows. She was the same on day one and each and every time we had sessions. She asked penetrating questions that allowed me to get to the root of some key blocks that have bothered me for a long time. I appreciated her wisdom, curiosity and compassion while we tackled some heavy topics. I highly recommend Marisa to anyone that is looking to make changes in their lives, but can’t get past old hurts and traumas.
Marisa has compassion, not only for her commitment to the work she has dedicated herself to, but also for her clients. She knows how to create a safe environment to explore whatever it is that the client needs in that exact moment.
She listens to me with intention and asks probing questions that provide me insight and dare I say it, new understanding, about situations that I thought were going to be impossible to navigate.
If you’re ready to stop living in the past and want to learn how to be present in the here and now so you can create a promising future with purpose for yourself, and need someone who understands trauma intimately - Marisa is your person!
"It's amazing how much more open I feel, how much more clear I see, before starting the sessions I thought my mind was too messy and y thoughts race way too fast for someone to figure all this out, but you in some way managed to take them all and sort them out for me.
No matter how "I feel like I'm being too much" I feel, you still listen and understand what I am thinking and feeling. I have noticed how more aware of my thoughts I've become, how soo much easier it has become for me to change their direction to somewhere I want them to go and I'm immensely grateful for that, because I used to catastrophize a lot and I would struggle with that.
Being in control of my thoughts has made me feel in a lot more ease, thankfully. Before starting I wrote down all the things that I wanted to accomplish with you, and reading them now I find that we have checked-off all that together.
Thank you for creating this comfortable and easy place to unpack all there is. Thank you from the bottom of y heart for helping me and putting all the effort into helping me. Thank you for being honest and devoted in this, it's such a sensitive place to me but you show up fully and openly and make it so comfortable to do the same."
If there was one word to describe Marisa and her coaching style, I would use “catalyst”.
Marisa has been a catalyst in change, for the shift of my perspectives, for the inspiration that comes from the breakthroughs, and the compassion I needed to see in myself.
My relationship with anxiety, perfectionism, and low self-esteem was such a mean and tormenting one, that no matter how times I thought I had fixed the situation, I simply pushed them away or suppressed them.
When I started my sessions with Marisa, I didn’t realise how much would have changed. These types of coaching sessions are different, I’m not scared to divulge my feelings or emotions, Marisa is patient when I need a moment to consciously collect myself and convey my thoughts. She has helped steer me through my issues of self-doubt, disbelief and anxiety, through positive visualisations and simple exercises that don’t require too much emotional energy.
The great thing is that these exercises can be taken from the session into the real world, when I find myself feeling like I need a moment to recalibrate I reflect back on the progress I’ve made.
I didn’t think I would ever find myself feeling as vulnerable as I have since the time I have partaken in these sessions. Marisa has an organic way of allowing you to surrender to your feelings and to let go whatever preconceived idea that you have of yourself, to just be yourself. There is a warm sense of reciprocation of energies, and I always feel enlightened or inspired post-session.
I’m glad to have found someone that can relate, be in-tune with what I’m saying and feeling to then create something meaningful from the guided conversations we have. The empathy, compassion and genuine consideration make such a difference when being guided through triggers, traumatic or difficult moments where some emotions are harder to regulate
because they’ve never surfaced.
Marisa, helped me see my potential, I honestly feel so much more empowered prior to this connection.
With so much gratitude, thank you from the bottom of my heart – I’m glad I didn’t settle for less than I deserved.
Keep shining your light, Marisa.
There are many folks on social media that talk about generational trauma, but the way Marisa presented it really resonated with me. Even having a Pink lyric as the name of her coaching business spoke to me. I'm thankful that I took the chance to go through this journey with Marisa. She provided a safe space for me to feel emotions and grow from the hurt and anger I've held on to. I feel empowered to be a better mother for my daughter, and a better person to myself. Thank you, Marisa.
