About Marisa

I am a trained clinical social worker who spent the last decade as a child & family therapist for marginalized communities. I went deep into the world of serving others with acute needs and trauma. It was an incredibly rewarding career but ultimately left me depleted emotionally and physically.

After a tumultuous time of soul-searching, examining my values and how I wanted to continue to serve others, I pivoted my career and became a certified professional coach. Because of this personal experience with a career change and health issues, I bring true empathy and awareness to coaching work that explores making big life changes.

I am excited and proud to be a coach who supports people as they navigate a tricky path forward. I work with clients around career issues, career or life transitions, parenting during the pandemic, work/life balance struggles and overall life stressors. I will bring warmth, kindness, curiosity and wisdom to working with you. I look forward to connecting!
