I love the work I do and feel confident in my ability to help and serve others. I have found a balance between enjoying my family time and being creative in my work and life. I have a regular, grounding meditation practice in addition to time for play. I have time for myself, my family and friends. I feel a sense of peace and joy, and love my life!
But it wasn’t always like this. I was feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, overweight, feeling stuck, and not sure how to change things. I was taking on a lot of stress from my work and I knew that more was possible for my clients and myself. I also wanted to start a family.
I decided to take some time off of work after the birth of my first child, and I discovered meditation and the Inner Space Techniques of Meditation (IST).
This turned everything around for me and changed the way I work with clients. The grounding of meditation combined with getting to know myself at a deep level and getting to the root cause of my stress and overwhelm, helped to transform my life. My relationships deepened with loved ones and I grew into a stronger, more loving and accepting relationship with myself. Now I can help you do the same thing. I am dedicating my life to helping women and Moms feel more joyful, alive and vibrant.
My dream client is a woman who is highly motivated to change.
She is successful and hard working. She is in her late 30’s-50’s and is a Mom with kids. She feels a sense of stress and anxiety, feeling overwhelmed and pulled in different directions. She feels she doesn’t have enough time to do all the things she needs to do and she can be a perfectionist. She struggles with feeling good about herself and her parenting.She doubts herself and her decisions and can get stuck in a place of indecision.
She feels exhausted and feels she has to push to get things done. She wants to have better communication and relationship with her partner. She is looking for a way to bring more joy and pleasure into her daily life. At times she fears that she is wired wrong, broken, and can’t be fixed. She blames herself for not feeling more joy in her life, and feels a sense of regret that the days slip by her and she didn’t make the best of it.
After working together, my ideal client will feel relaxed and confident about herself and her life. She will feel a sense of ease and flow in her day and in making decisions. She will trust herself to make the right choice, and will let it go. She will be present for herself and her children in their play. She will be comfortable with asking for help, and will enjoy receiving it, allowing her partner and others to support her.
She will balance her time for herself, her family and her work or creative endeavors. She will engage in a regular exercise and self-care routine including meditation and alone time. She and her partner will plan and have regular time together. They will rekindle the early feelings of their romance and find new comfort in being together and sharing intimate moments. She and her family will enjoy beautiful vacations together, as well as regular fun time together during the week.
She will feel like she has a new perspective on her life. She will appreciate things more, and things will feel much less challenging. She will have a major shift in how she perceives herself. She will like herself more and feel proud of her accomplishments. She will know her own strengths and look forward to the future and to being creative in her life. She will feel a sense of appreciation for herself and her life, as well as a determination moving forward to share her passion and desires with others.

Maureen cares deeply and her capacity for nurturing is very visible. She is very perceptive and has a deep level of self-awareness. Her openness, clarity and receptivity make it very easy to work with her.B.B.
Maureen uses deep meditation techniques to bring you to a place of connection where you can get back in touch with your true self. Unlike other therapies where you may focus on current problems in your life, Maureen’s work goes deeper to address root causes and help change habitual patterns and attitudes that keep you from living a fulfilling life. She is caring, attentive, and knowledgeable. The major benefit I’ve received is feeling more connected and supported in life and less likely to spin out with negative thinking as I used to do.C.K.
Maureen exhibits qualities of sincerity, calming, a deep sense of caring and commitment towards her clients.J.H.
