Are you ready to THRIVE?

Meet Marisa

Certified ENLP Master Practitioner Transformational Coach, Author, Speaker & Parent Mentor

I believe there is greatness in all of us and your challenging child is no different.  My mission is to create a safe haven for all parents struggling to understand what's going on with their child and create a roadmap to help you experience your own breakthrough.  My gifts are to intuitively dig in and get to the root cause of your problem and the ability to create lasting solutions that suit your individual and family needs. If you want answers for your child or you are personally struggling with being a parent, I can help!


My passion is working with people who have had challenging parenting experiences and are ready for a major shift.  If you're like me and want real change . . . not just a one-size-fits-most band aid, then this is the perfect place for you.  Expect real change to happen in a warm, safe, judgement free environment.  I am here to support you 100%.  By listening to your challenges, I focus on innovative, proven and tested strategies that transform lives.  Together we will create positive and lasting change! 


I've always loved people and am completely obsessed about how the brain works, neuroplasticity and how it's all connected to your thoughts, feelings, health and ultimately the life you create.  I've always been a self-help nut but I also know first hand what it's like to struggle.  I was a new mom, in and out of doctors offices, struggling in my marriage and barely able to keep my head above water.  At that time I felt lost.  I didn't know what to do or how to get the answers I desperately needed.  We were told everything was "normal" and/or in the normal ranges for our son and that we needed to wait until he was older to see how things played out.  It was at that time that I quit my corporate career and my friend and I started a local business.  With a new work life balance I was able to take classes, do research and observe change.  This is when I started to totally geek out over neuro-science and neuro-linguistic programing (NLP).  I was on a mission to get answers . . . and boy did I. 


With more "ah-ha" moments than I could count, family, teachers and friends were taking notice.  I became curious as to WHY what we were doing was working so well and felt compelled to learn HOW to help other families do the same.  I'm now a certified practitioner for Evolved Neuro-linguistic Programming (ENLP),  Quantum Time Release™, Quantum Goal Setting,  and the energy healing arts of Acupressure and Reiki as well as a Transformational Coach.  It's a mouthful, I know! 


I wish I could go back in time and tell myself what I know now.  What's that saying "you don't know what you don't know,"  well it's so true.  Today after many years of research, education and certifications,  I'm overjoyed to be here to help you find the light at the end of your tunnel and create lasting change!

You have the power to create a meaningful, respectful, loving, and dare I say PEACEFUL relationship with your child.  To get results like this we'll need to work as a team and I'll need your commitment and desire for change to make it happen.  Now, let's play at 100% and together we can achieve amazing results.


I cannot wait to work with you!

I think my favorite or the most valuable thing of all for me is that I feel more deeply connected to my purpose. Being a parent and mother of a special needs child is no longer to the exclusion of my dreams and goals, but this special role that I have and that my kids have is actually in support of -- and even a catalyst for -- living my best life.


A life transforming experience! Before meeting Marisa, I was having issues believing I was not a good father ... Working with Marisa has helped me see what makes me properly at peace & joy and has restored my belief in myself that I am an amazing father. I am full of excitement now, about my family's future. Exactly what I needed!

”I was at my breaking point and completely felt like I was failing. Our days were filled with meltdowns and yelling and lots of unrest. Marisa helped me learn how to set boundaries and how and when it was appropriate to handle behaviors. Now, I'm able to stay calmer in the face of big emotions, interrupt the behaviors, and discuss them in a meaningful and validating way later on. ”
