“Marijo will help and guide you to change your life in ways you never thought possible or could ever imagine.
In 2014, I needed help with challenging family and work problems. I was lost. I found myself unable to find comfort in my home or work life. This compounded my anxiety in ways I had never experienced. I found myself edgy, stressed, filled with rage, and completely overwhelmed by life (from making coffee to submitting projects on time at work). I wanted to spend most days in bed, but even when I could retreat from the world, I found no peace. My mind was on over-drive.
I would feel blinding rage at the simplest things. An example of a common trigger, that perplexed me the most, was my family repeatedly left dirty dishes in the sink. I would immediately feel blinding rage that they could not remember to fill the dishwasher or empty it when it was clean. I began to think they were thoughtless and unkind. I felt they passively were telling me that dish cleaning was “my” task.
I assumed that in their not loading the dishwasher, they saw me as their maid and it was my duty to clean up after them. I couldn’t understand how dirty dishes left me feeling hopeless and raged. It didn’t make any sense. They were just dishes. After beginning my work with Marijo, she helped me see that the dishes in the sink were NOT about “me.” They were a trigger of something more. There were so many other aspects to look at and consider. I was only seeing the dirty dishes through my filter when my family had their own filters, too. Until I started my work with Marijo, I did not have the skills to think this way. This was just one example of Marijo’s insight and skill. I knew I wanted to work with her extensively.
When I first started, I went into my sessions with Marijo with a complete open-mind. I was ready to do work and excited to make positive changes. I knew this wasn’t going to be conventional therapy and I was excited (but nervous and scared) to start. I did not know what to expect. My family and friends had asked me why I chose to see Marijo and not go to a conventional therapist. Honestly, therapy only worked temporarily for me. As I entered my 40’s, I wanted something different. In therapy, I left a session relieved I had unloaded my thoughts and feelings that burdened me, but I was left without follow up work or tasks to do to fix any of the reasons I was seeing a therapist in the first place. I wanted to stop negative thought processes and behaviors. I didn’t want to keep repeating them only to stay in therapy complaining about them. The cycle needed to stop, but I lacked the skills to do it. Marijo provides me with skills, tools, techniques and more.
In your sessions, Marijo listens intently to you. She has the ability give clarity to what you are saying even when you might feel emotional and unclear. She filters what you are saying to find out what is truly going on for you. It’s like laser vision. She has the ability to see how what you are talking about hits a nerve with you so strongly and why it’s making such an impact on you. The tools she gives you to begin changing and transforming your life are endless. I have not left a single session without a meditation, book, tool or techniques that help me daily. I leave our sessions feeling better I have talked about what is on my mind PLUS I now have tools to fix and correct less than healthy behaviors and thought processes. You also leave with tools to enhance your positive traits. When used daily, your life will become less effortless, hard and overwhelming.
Relationships with friends, family and co-workers will change in ways that are unimaginable. It will astound you. I promise. They even change when think you might not be trying hard enough or are having a rough day.
I have worked with Marijo for over 3 months and I continue to be in awe of her brilliance, talent, skill, intelligence, compassion, calmness and empathy. I have not left one energy or coaching session without a powerful insight into myself. This is work for you. Some sessions will leave you filled with joy and clarity. Other times, the work is hard. You will hit some dark spots. Stay with the work.
Don’t let it discourage you. You are worth it and will love yourself for having done so.
The more time you spend with Marijo, the more you want to be like her.
She radiates calmness and serenity. She never judges. She believes in you even when you don’t. If you are looking to make changes in your life or need guidance, I recommend seeing Marijo without any reservations. Everyone will benefit from her program. You will feel more self love and be an even better person for it. You won’t regret it and will wish you saw her sooner.”
