Something About Mary

Your happiness and success are my mission in life.

A word from your Chief Permission Granter (that’s me on the left, with smiling daughter on the right reassuring me I’m completely safe on the Ferris wheel!)

For my entire adult life, from 1983 until 2014, I suffered with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. I had times when I felt happy, of course, but much of the time I felt like I was existing, not living. And I was sad. It seemed like my life had been taken from me, and what I was left with just wasn’t the life I had dreamed of living.

I was missing something: something big.

In 2014, I discovered that what was missing … well, it wasn’t actually missing it all.

The happiness, peace and utter joy I wanted so badly to experience wasn’t just within me, it WAS me. It was a milestone that changed the course of my life forever. I haven’t been the same since, in the best possible way.

In 2016, I had another breakthrough moment: What if I only did things I wanted to do and ignored the rest? I gave myself permission to live the life I really wanted to live. And ever since then, everything has changed — and fast! I have written books, met people I’ve admired for years, started my own business and made it financially successful, spent time with my family  — and achieved a lifelong dream of moving to Paris, France. All in just one year!

What’s on your wish list? What do you want to start doing, and what do you want to stop doing? You Have Permission.

About Mary As A Coach

“I did not expect to explore creativity during our sessions, and I was pleasantly surprised that innate creativity was something I could see and understand easily. It felt like a very inspiring, uplifting place to be and a direction I want to look more and more in. It felt like the answer to something I had been searching for.

Mary is easy to connect with, and the connection felt virtually instant. She is supportive and inspiring, and I am in awe of the depth and wisdom she shares and coaches from. I would absolutely recommend Mary as a coach. She will help point you in directions you have not even seen yet.”

Gayle Nobel

“I would describe the experience of working with Mary as very, very wonderful. Here’s the thing. She sees it. And there’s something very comforting about being in the presence of someone who deeply knows that you are okay.

I would 100 percent recommend Mary as a coach. She knows where well-being is. She can see it so clearly, that she is as matter-of-fact in telling you that you are going in the wrong direction and need to turn around as if she were giving you physical directions to a restaurant. I felt a profound sense of relief at the end of my time with Mary, like I had been making ‘much ado about nothing’ and I could just stop doing that. I also felt hopeful in a sort of curious way, like, ‘I wonder what I’ll do instead now?’ It feels like more possibilities are opening up.”


“In a non-judgmental, light-hearted way, Mary will encourage you to see things from a radically different perspective. In the process of opening to your own inner wisdom and clarity, you may just discover that, as a bonus, the improved health, money, relationships, or career you’ve been searching for will find you.”
