Navigate Life’s Unexpected Challenges with Resiliency …

… Turning Transition into Triumph!

Welcome! I’m María Tomás-Keegan, a certified career & life coach, as well as an award-winning author and international podcast host. Through my work, I create and offer resources for women that help to turn their world right side up again in the aftermath of life-changing events.

Life happens. Divorce. Career upheaval. Loss. And, so many more. After you move through the initial sadness, grief, and anxiety that change brings, you are often left wondering, Who Am I Now? 

That process of discovery is one of my specialties. I can help you explore a new way of looking at your life, so you can re-imagine who you are, what you want, and who you want to become. 

Along that journey, you will build resilience, renew your confidence, and find a new joy for living based on the choices you make. That’s how you begin to thrive.

Which type of event or change has taken you by surprise?

How can you bounce back with resilience and confidence?

Are you usually able to roll with the punches and rebound quickly? This time you’re not?

What might be different? When your world is unexpectedly shaken by a major life event—such as a divorce, loss of a loved one or a career upheaval—it can take you down a deep dark pit of despair from which it can seem like there’s no way out. No light at the end of the tunnel. Bouncing back feels impossible.

It might be that life events have piled-up on you and you thought you were doing just fine—until this time. It was the last straw. 

I get it. One day you’re feeling as if you can tough this out and get through it, and today your resiliency has taken a hike.

I want you to know you’re not alone.

I’m here to guide you back to your powerful, resilient self, so you can make choices that help you to turn your upside-down world right-side up again.

Career and Life Coach helping women face adversity with resiliencyI’ve been where you are…

I lived through major shifts in my life over and over again and became hardened to how I was feeling. 

Many of these unexpected life events happened during my decades-long corporate management career.  I felt compelled to stuff my emotions deeply just to get through the day. Most of the time, I didn’t know what I was feeling. I just kept on going, wearing a mask and a suit of armor to protect me, conditioning myself by pretending everything is fine—going through the motions.

Until this one time, something within me broke and I couldn’t summon the resiliency to keep plowing through. 

When I hit rock-bottom, I had no choice but to reach for help. It was my turning point.

There are times when everyone needs a trusted hand to find the way back after being derailed. The woman who reached out her hand to me saved my life.  She paid it forward, and I am paying it back. 

As a result, I’m inspired to help other women thrive, as I have learned to because I am proof that it is possible.

I encourage women like you to give themselves permission to rediscover who they are now, after an event has abruptly changed them. They get to take off the mask they hide behind and begin to create a vibrant life which supports them where they are today and where they want to go.

Together, we create an environment that allows you to step back into your life fully, with more clarity and confidence.

You regain resiliency while putting tools in your treasure chest which will keep you from getting derailed ever again.

 That’s what I call thriving!

Get Unstuck! 5 Steps to Adapt to Change & Move Through Transition

Life or career events that throw us off-course can make us feel small. In response, we might doubt ourselves or sabotage our every move. In the worst case scenarios, we might become paralyzed–unable to move at all. STUCK! When significant events turn your world upside down, you might not know which end is up or what to expect next. In that situation, it’s difficult to plan when you don’t know what to plan for. You might wonder if there is light at the end of the tunnel (and whether or not you’ll ever get to it).

I’m here to tell you that there is.

You might be in the middle of a tunnel right now. You might even see light at both ends. You know that you don’t want to go back where you came from, but you’re also not sure how to move forward.

This book shares what I know about change and transition—the difference between them, and the choices you have as significant events disrupt life as you know it. Download the audio or printable version below:

Let’s thrive together.
