There is a profound recognition in our collective awareness that something has to change, we have to change, to come back into right relationship with ourselves, with the Earth, and with life.
Using techniques grounded in 30 years as a practitioner, Mary is skilled in the integration of East Asian medicine with practical lifestyle coaching, dreamwork, somatic therapy, and meditation. Her practice is to always generously share her resources so clients become equal partners with her in their healing.
She believes direct experience of body, mind, and spirit in the present moment is one of life's best teachers. Thus, each session includes both experiential practice and insight as you explore thoughts, emotions, resistance, and whatever else arises.
The answers we seek often lie within; the symptoms, problems, and yearning for change we experience hold a promise for deeper engagement with life when we come into relationship with them and understand their meaning for us. Only then can we make wise, informed choices about what comes next on our journey.
The focus will depend on what needs attention for you. Is it practical diet and lifestyle guidance, working with dreams to understand their meaning to you, or perhaps learning to meditate?
Rhythms of Change – The Book
East Asian medicine has a profound understanding of the oneness of body, mind, and spirit. Rhythms of Change takes you on a journey that reveals the ancient wisdom of the Taoists and applies it to the challenges of daily life. The book discusses the five elemental energies in nature and within our own bodies and psyches. Most importantly, the book guides you to engage these energies more deeply in your own life.
Looking back at when I started doing mentoring work with Mary, I was alone in the depths of fear, grief, and rage. With her kindness and compassionate nature she helped me access the inner strength that was needed to grow beyond the loss I had suffered. Her coaching has helped me to redefine my values and is always a gentle reminder to live according to those values. Her knowledge and experience is what make her truly unique and incredibly helpful.

Mary helped me understand my habitual patterns and transform them into new daily practices that are more aligned with what I want. In a few short months of working with Mary, I began to witness significant changes in my productivity and quality of life. Play, joy and lightness are once again companions. Most important of all, she helped me align myself with the true purpose of this one precious life I’ve been given. I am profoundly grateful to Mary as a guide on this journey.
