While you may feel bent from the pain, heartache, and trauma you experienced, I believe you are not broken beyond repair.


I believe each person is whole and resourceful and has all the power and capability to reclaim their inherent worth NOW!

I help recovering perfectionists let go of the need to prove their worth and believe that they are worthy NOW by remaining curious, asking powerful questions, and holding safe, nonjudgmental space for their transformative process.

As a trauma informed life coach, I help you reconnect to your inner & innate wisdom and cheer you on as you move forward on your self-healing journey!

You deserve to live an empowered life.

You are worthy of joy and love.

You are have accomplished so much.

You are capable of great things.

You deserve to receive the same love and compassion you give to others.

Are you ready to break the cycle?

Are you ready to reclaim your birthright of self love and compassion?

Are you ready to embrace your inherent worth?

Are you ready to begin living life for YOU?

My upcoming online course may be the right fit for you to support you on your journey. Coming soon.

Can you relate?

Do struggle with one or more of the following: 

  • perfectionism

  • people pleasing

  • boundaries

  • hyper vigilance

  • hypercriticism

  • codependency

  • low self-worth

  • confrontation

  • hyper-independence 

  • external validation


Struggling with any of these things doesn't mean you're too broken or unrepairable. It simply means there is a wound that needs your attention.

For me, a lot of these behaviors stemmed from an unmet need in childhood. I could go down the list and trace back the incident or series of events that led to the wound. Being unconscious of how these struggles played out in my life kept me stuck in a mentally dark place that held me back from living my life to its fullest and gave my inner critic so much power over what I believed about myself. But by healing these wounds (over the course of many years!) and learning how to fully and completely love and accept myself as I am, I can finally breathe again.

my role as your
perfectionism recovery coach

As your coach, I will help you...

  • Identify self-critical or self-limiting beliefs and address the fears, worries, or expectations revealed through these beliefs

  • Cultivate a wise, compassionate inner voice that is louder than the critic

  • Create and integrate a loving inner dialogue while embodying self-love and self-compassion

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 heard, 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 look to make changes in their lives, but can't get past old hurts and traumas.

It is not therapy nor should be treated as a substitute for working with a medical professional or other licensed mental health professional. Coaches do not diagnose; please work with a medical professional or licensed therapist, psychiatrist, or psychologist for diagnoses or if you feel psychologically stressed out to the point you are unable to function in your day-to-day life. Coaching may enhance your therapy or healing journey, but the bulk of coaching is present/immediate future-focused rather than past-focused. If you're specifically looking to explore the past, coaching may not be the best fit for this current stage of your journey.
