What Women Say about Working with María

“I knew life coaching would change my life from my first session…”

“I knew life coaching would change my life from my first session with María, I am normally a procrastinator. I was stuck in life wondering would I ever be free. However, I refused to hesitate when deciding that I needed Transition and Thrive Life Coaching to help me to get to the next level in life, without it I would not be where I am today. My thoughts would still be racing wondering how to get from point A to B. I no longer find myself becoming frustrated easily when things don’t manifest immediately, I have learned how to take a step back look at my situation and develop the steps I need to get me to where I want to go. I no longer tell myself I am too old because age is just a number. In the movie Shawshank Redemption Morgan Freeman makes the following statement “You can either get busy living or get busy dying.” María has taught me how to get busy living. I am still a work in progress and will always be but now I have the tools I need to climb the mountains that are before me. I no longer stand at the base of the mountain wondering how to get to the top. Thanks so much Maria for helping me through this process.”

"I now have "greater insight into myself to redefine my goals ... with tangible steps to achieve them."

María is a true coach who cares about her clients and works to identify their needs and values in order to best motivate and encourage them. She has just the right combination of knowledge, insight into people and coaching technique. She is firm when she needs to be in the interest of her clients, holding them accountable and helping them to better understand themselves. María is trustworthy and takes the requirement for confidentiality very seriously, which allows clients to examine [all] aspects of their lives at a deeper level. She has given me greater insight into myself in terms of identifying and redefining my professional and personal goals and has given me tangible steps to take in achieving them. I highly recommend María as a coach ….

"I look back on my good fortune, I realize what a phenomenal coach María was to me then and continues to be for me now."

María has this fantastic saying: “People enter your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.” Fortunately for me, my relationship with Maria started as a reason, extended to a season and has ultimately landed in the lifetime category. I met María nearly 20 years ago and still to this day, I am lucky to consider her a true friend, mentor and coach. Early in my career, I worked very closely with María and she took careful time to transfer her knowledge in a style that was warm and inviting. I owe a lot of my successes to María and her belief in me and my abilities. We spent loads of time on the phone talking through various professional situations and life choices. And now, as I look back on my good fortune, I realize what a phenomenal coach María was to me then and continues to be for me now.

"... I began to feel stronger and more confident than I had ever felt in my life."

When I met María, I was struggling with a lack of confidence and I was in a lot of emotional pain.  I felt very tethered to what I viewed as my embarrassing past.  I had a history of failed relationships and I was very confused about my life and how to move forward.  María helped me to see that I had many strengths and unique qualities that could serve me to not only survive but thrive.  Through her gentle but powerful questioning and her unconditional support, I began to feel stronger and more confident than I had ever felt in my life.  I let go of my stories of failure and began to see victories in them, instead.  Because of this, all areas of my life improved.  Thanks so much, María, for your time and your talent!  You are truly a gift to this world!

"... she helped me to feel more secure in moving forward."

María is a warm, skilled and compassionate coach. Having been through many transitions herself, she can identify with her clients and brings a perspective based on her personal experience. I was recently thinking about making a major change in my life. Maria listened to my concerns and made suggestions that helped me to feel more secure in moving forward.

"I am now empowered to regain the balance I lost …"

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began María’s program. I did know that my life was different now that I was divorced, and I wasn’t sure how to deal with it. The program guided me through a process of re-discovering me. I was able to identify with life values as an individual—not as a wife or mother. I was encouraged to envision my life in a couple of years in a multi-dimensional way. By putting that future vision into the present tense, I was able to set goals that can be accomplished today and are leading me to make this vision a reality. I am now empowered to regain the balance in my life that I lost when I got divorced. I am thankful to María and her community for their support and guidance through this significant life change.

"I was really able to focus on me for once ..."

I’m so thankful for María and her program.  There are so many emotions to process during and after divorce that it was hard for me to know what’s normal.  I was able to really focus on me for once and set a plan of action to reach some new independent goals for myself.  I look forward to working with María after this program and I know I have her support for life.  She is a blessing to anyone she meets. I’m ready to live my life for me and excited for the next chapter.  Thank you for this wonderful program.

"... brings the light of awareness into hidden corners of resentment, fear and avoidance"

As my coach, María used thought-provoking techniques to help bring the bright light of awareness into hidden corners of resentment, fear and avoidance. Through plans developed with her guidance, I was able to bring healthy change to my family relationships and satisfaction to my role as a registered nurse. There is now more joy in life.

"She helps women, like me … move from pain to a healthy, happy life."

María is such a caring and supportive person. She helps women, like me, get through the after-effects of divorce and learn how to move through to the other side from pain to a healthy and happy life. She has never given up on me. As much as I’ve been willing to help myself, she’s willing to work with me to move into something better…a better life. María is what I consider a high vibration person who honestly cares about each person she works with. María is a blessing who brings blessings to us all.

With ease, grace, and charm, Maria offers a course of action for getting us unstuck from life’s challenges. Her approach feels like a refreshing retreat from everyday life, so necessary for moving ahead.
