I am a humanBEING (as opposed to a humanDOING), and I operate beingmerry.com.
I am a conduit of positive information that this worlds needs more of. By coaching, one-on-one, life transitions and how to bring more engagment and satisfaction, to teaching mindfulness-based applications, to organizing retreats in natural settings, I am the change I want to see in the world.
I'm accredited by the International Coach Federation as a Life Coach, as a Mindfulness Coach by the Mindfulness Coaching School, and as a Wellness Coach by MentorCoach.com. I'm a trained teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion, and on my way to certification for teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction through the Mindfulness-based Professional Training Institute. Lastly, I am a Certified Science of Happiness Trainer through Hapacus, as I know happiness all starts with you... inside yourself!
The biggest lessons I've learned so far in life were not in a classroom, but in the real world, where I raised 3 healthy children, started a business, dissolved a long term marriage, and rediscovered myself. I work with others whom are in similar transitions-- be it rebuilding after a marriage, or refinding themselves in an empty nest, or just contemplating that next chapter and how they are going to carry it out!
I have a BA in Psychology and MA in Education, and I use that knowledge as a foundation for all the work I do today.
