Helping my clients bring real and lasting change to their lives is why I LOVE what I do!
“…so instead of my inner critic being a screaming voice that stops me dead in my tracks, I now can push through the fear with confidence to succeed. 'Thank you, MaryAnn, for helping me find the courage to soar!”
- Shannon D.
Hi! I’m MaryAnn.
The most important thing you need to know about me is that I used to have a bully living inside my head, too.
She spent most of my life trying to convince me that I’m way less than my strong, marvelous, fearless authentic self.
And, oh boy, was she good at it!
She had lots of ammunition.
Adoption – “Your own mother didn’t want you.”
Abuse at the hands of a child predator – “You’re bad, damaged, and it’s all your fault.”
Anorexia – “You’re worthless. It’d be better if you disappeared.”
Even though I’d experienced much in what the world defines as success,
My inner critic kept me on a wild pendulum ride swinging back and forth between perfectionism & judgment to anxiety & depression.
It wasn’t until a traumatic event with my teenage daughter turned my life upside down that I’d finally had ENOUGH.
Everything my inner critic had told me of how I had to keep everything “under control” and “behave” to keep anything bad from happening again became crystal clear as the lies they were.
When that truth pierced my heart and the light bulb switched on inside my head, I was able for the very first time to truly see my inner critic for the shameless captor she was.
I began to stand up to her and take my life back.
I’m here today so you can do the same for yourself.
Take back the parts of your life you've given away - personally, professionally, or both.
The best part is that you don’t have to go it alone.
You can BE YOU with strength and confidence exactly the way that feels genuine to you beginning today.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. You’ve already begun by reading this far. You’re already standing up to your inner critic.
You’re no victim. Not anymore.
So, if visiting my website is Step 1 (congrats!), deciding how to begin working together is Step 2.
I can’t wait to connect with you wherever you are on your journey of living your best authentic life.
