Marion is a warm, welcoming and empathetic professional and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her on specific areas of concern in my life. After completing the 8-week mindful based coaching I am now less stressed and feel my life is more well-rounded and balanced. I have gained valuable tools and skills to assist me in working through future challenges in all areas of my life. I found that regular sessions, working through the program and the meditation practice incorporated into the program, gave me clarity about my needs and desires, and assisted me in maintaining boundaries to stay true to my authentic self.Caitlin
The 6 week mindfulness course informed me of the importance of meditation for mental health. I found my skills set was improved and it improved my self-awareness and the development of greater calmness.Aiden Jones

Marion has a great energy about her. Her empathy and mindfulness immediately made me feel like I’ve come to the right place. Our work has helped me to look at the concerns I had from a different perspective, a more loving perspective. Having an action based approach really grounded me and allowed me to understand what’s important to me.Estor Varos
