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. Establishing a regular routine of meditation brought a sense of calm and grounding. Using the process of IST myself allowed me to get to know myself at a deep level and to get to the root cause of my stress and overwhelm. 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.
You are successful and hard working, and are a mom with kids. You feel a sense of stress and anxiety, feeling overwhelmed and pulled in different directions. You don’t have enough time to do all the things you need to do and you can be a perfectionist. You struggle with feeling good about yourself and your parenting. You doubt yourself and your decisions and can get stuck in a place of indecision.
You feel exhausted and feel you have to push to get things done. You want to have better communication and relationship with your partner. You are looking for a way to bring more joy and pleasure into your daily life. At times you fear that you are wired wrong, broken, and can’t be fixed. You blame yourself for not feeling more joy in your life, and feel a sense of regret that the days slip by and you didn’t make the best of it.
After working together, you will feel relaxed and confident about yourself and your life. You will feel a sense of ease and flow in your day and in making decisions. You will trust yourself to make the right choice, and will let it go. You will be present for yourself and your children in their play. You will be comfortable with asking for help, and will enjoy receiving it, allowing your partner and others to support you.
You will balance time for yourself, your family and your work or creative endeavors. You will engage in a regular exercise and self-care routine including meditation and alone time. You and your partner will plan and have regular time together. You will rekindle the early feelings of your romance and find new comfort in being together and sharing intimate moments. You and your family will enjoy beautiful vacations together, as well as regular fun time together during the week.
You will feel like you have a new perspective on your life. You will appreciate things more, and things will feel less challenging. You will have a major shift in how you perceive yourself. You will feel like a happier mother, feeling more present and observant of your kids and will be better at communicating with your partner. You will learn how to take a change of plans and change of direction in stride. You will be able to enjoy whatever is getting done at the moment rather than thinking about what needs to get done five minutes later. You will feel a happier environment in your home and feel more harmony at home. You will feel a sense of appreciation for yourself and your life, as well as a determination moving forward to share your passion and desires with others.

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.
