    Marissa is a grounded, approachable, caring, holistic teacher, coach & guide." -Karen M.

    "Marissa knows how to make people look at themselves beautifully." -Johanna S.

  • "A friend of mine recommended Marissa to me when I was talking to him about my recent diagnosis of a gluten allergy and a desire to become more healthy in all aspects of my life. I had no idea, when we first met, the impact she would be making in my life. Marissa walked me through the weeks of health coaching and through our conversations and exercises it became quite obvious that the issues in my life were not so much food related but only manifested themselves in an unhealthy relationship with food. After we finished the health portion of the workshop I chose to continue working with Marissa on a spiritual exploration. This exploration allowed a spark in me to catch fire which set in motion some of the largest changes I have experienced in my adult life. Working with her helped me see how to simplify things and make significant strides in having a more full but less hectic life. Today I am a stronger but more thoughtful person and I have Marissa to thank for opening me up to a different way of living life." -Lauren N.
  • "Working with Marissa has been a tremendous and eye-opening experience. She focuses on the importantance of a holistic approach to health - food, exercise, and spirituality - and gave me the tools and knowledge I needed to develop a better and more connected relationship with myself and those around me. What I love most about Marissa is that she fully embodies what she teaches because this is her passion - not just her profession. Everytime i work with Marissa I learn something new that helps me on my path to feeling more feel more grounded, aware, and spiritually connected. " -S.C.
