My Story

I love to work with people ready to make an authentic change in their health that is sustainable and nourishing everyday. We are all seeking a special personal balance in our lives and want the vitality to move freely in our work and attend to our passions in life.  Having struggled with stress and thyroid issues most of my adult life, the epiphany for me was to get certified in health coaching and integrate this on a holistic front using herbs, food, energy medicine and many other new ways to help myself and now others fuel and balance  busy lives and do it with less stress.  I currently live and work on a mountain top in Vermont where the seasons fuel a creative force and joy for life. 

Recent Testimonials

From the start Marie listens with a full heart and mind and clearly outlines the working relationship. I have rarely met anyone who gets to the heart of the matter and Marie does just that. Marie honed into my issue and how to best address it. Her knowledge base is astounding. She has an integrative approach to health, and based on how you as the client would like to move forward, provides an easy to incorporate action plan. After each session I received an email fully outlining what we discussed with the suggestions she provided. Marie is a jewel as a person and professional! The best result is that I not only feel better but also have a personalized plan and contact to stay on course. “

”Not only is Marie a wealth of knowledge about food as medicine and herbal remedies, she is a truly gifted healer. She is calm and profoundly caring. She wants to know you and asks fantastic questions that lead to truly insightful work. When you live in a world of disconnected health care providers who are never fully present and ultimately not that interested in you, Marie’s total commitment to connecting the emotional, physical, social, spiritual dots that make up who you are is profound and actually a huge sigh of relief. She listens. She intuits. She translates and she communicates, all at a very high level. She is a natural healer. I highly recommend Marie to anyone who knows that achieving true health has everything to do with how we identify and manage stress but also who we put our trust in to helping us heal”. -Kimberly Hackett, Parent Coach

As a first time mother-to-be you helped me ensure that I am getting the nutrition I need to grow a healthy child, I cannot tell you how much I value your help with nutrition at this important time in my life. I looked forward to each meeting and felt such inspiration from you. You shared resources and information in a manner that made it easy for me to incorporate recipes, techniques and new herbs into my life. I truly appreciated your ability to listen so openly, hearing what I had to say and using it to share tools to help me grow and learn. It is clear that you structure each session to the individual, and that you invest your full energy and attention into the time you have with each client. Your approach led me to be successful in reaching my goals. I am so appreciative of your generosity and willingness to share your knowledge. I look forward to attending workshops and enrolling in additional coaching sessions in the future. “
