A practical approach to a more joyful life
“Balancing sessions with Marie has helped me to figure out what is important to me, use my time to accomplish things that are essential and be kind to myself when I don’t complete things that are not essential. Marie is a very good listener and gives wonderful tools and suggestions to simplify life.”
Emanuela A. mom, teacher, singer/songwriter, and creator of a balanced life!
My mission is to help parents stop worrying about the things they value less and get them focused on spending more time on the parts of parenting, work, and life that bring them joy. I use a blend of coaching and consulting to make sure my clients have both a positive and productive experience in our work. I know it’s not enough to just change your mindset: you need practical tools and support to create the balanced life you crave.
- As your coach I will ask you powerful questions, give you empathy and support.
- As your consultant I will help you diagnose the issues that making you unbalanced, provide tools and resources to help you change what you do and how you do it, and work with you to reflect and adjust as you learn and grow throughout our work with the Create Balance Method.
Here is how you can work with me:
"Balancing sessions with Marie has helped me to figure out what is important to me, use my time to accomplish things that are essential and be kind to myself when I don't complete things that are not essential. Marie is a very good listener and gives wonderful tools and suggestions to simplify life."
"As a parent facilitator Marie is enthusiastic, well-versed and knowledgeable in her content area. She is also very responsive to participants needs and does an excellent job utilizing participant ideas and insights."
“Marie’s Productivity for Parents workshop helped us clearly see how [these tools] are going to help us in the long run and reign in the craziness of our days and help us make progress on our long term goals. The most useful tip I got from Marie in the training was: Maximize your time on what matters; minimize the rest.”
“[Productivity for Parents] is an excellent course that teaches you how to maximize your precious time as busy parents.”
“Marie has great energy and is really engaging and is enthusiastic about the subject. She genuinely wants to help parents focus on what really matters and make time for it”
Frequently Asked Questions
Wait . . . are you a life coach?
It depends. These days it can be hard to pin down what “life coach” means given how many people provide life coaching services in different ways. I do use some of the same tools as some amazing life coaches do, especially when helping my clients identify their essential values. However, I focus very specifically on teaching my clients methods and systems that will help them live in balance. I don’t expect you to uncover all the answers through our discussions (not that all life coaches operate this way, but some do). I assume that you are hiring me because you want both my guidance (which is my “coaching” side) and my expertise (which is my “consulting” side). I’m excited to share both of these with you!
How much do your individual sessions cost?
I don’t charge per session because I use different sessions lengths for different package offerings. For example, my “Time to Finally Get It Done” package uses two 70 minute sessions, while my “Create the Ultimate Balanced Life” Package includes ten 50-minute sessions. You can learn more about costs and payment plans by contacting me and letting me know which package you are interested in. Once you contact me I will send you a more detailed description of the package, including payment options.
