With Mariya, the ‘work’ of self-exploration has never been so much fun! The experience is grounding but light, far-reaching but intimate, and novel in technique but as familiar as the joys of childhood play. Mariya meets me where I am and helps me see how I can allow joy in more areas of my life. Mariya’s creative use of different therapeutic modalities sparks creative elements in me. What a lovely playmate!
I thought Mindfulness would be a dry class where we learn about history and current trends. Imagine my surprise when Dr. Shiyko would tell us to lie down, color, jump around, teach a dance move. I was learning but having fun at the same time. I felt relaxed, safe, and not stressed. This was something I hadn’t felt since grade school.
Mariya helped me so much in just a few sessions —on the phone, no less. It is very difficult to put into words because what I experienced is a shift in perception, and knowing my place and purpose. I reached out to her in a state of confusion and now feel in a state of grace. There is something special about Mariya—she moves things. It’s not the insight you gain about yourself that is crucial (although it is helpful, and she is so intuitive), it is the ability to move out of a place of pain or inertia that really matters, and she provided that catalyst for me. I am very grateful. Read More
I have no words for Mariya, she is a gifted person. I instantly felt connected and felt very relaxed and comfortable with her. After a couple of minutes of talk, her energy guided me to open myself, and all the stiffness inside me started to melt. All my life I was aimlessly and tirelessly searching without knowing what I was looking for. She helped me to understand the reason for my search and gave clarity about my current state of life, and what I need to do from now on. After the session, I felt so light. I felt that the baggage I had been carrying so long finally found a place to rest, and I am free. Read More
The interactions and open dialogue throughout the entirety of the class not only opened my eyes to the different perspectives and experiences of others, but it also taught me a lot about myself which I was not previously aware of. There is nothing more fulfilling than being self-aware and compassionate in order to truly get in tune with my emotional, mental, and spiritual intelligence.
Thank you for such a wonderful mindfulness class. You are a remarkable human and I aspire to live half the life you live. Thank you for your time and expertise. I appreciate it more than you know.
Mariya’s combination of gentle guidance and powerful listening effectively and promptly shifted me from a state of fatigue and worry to a state of peace, relaxation, non-judgment, and awareness from where I could experience my moment without distraction and see ahead with more clarity. Throughout the session, I was uplifted and recharged. I also had lots of fun, and it was rewarding to be able to freely laugh together.
Somehow Mariya knows exactly where I am holding pain or tension and coaxes it out of me. Even our remote session over the phone was incredibly powerful—she helped me fight off and avoid the flu! Her gifts go beyond the physical body, though. Seeing her is like an emotional therapy session. I always feel more at peace and balanced, and that feeling of joy and mindfulness lasts for weeks afterward.
I will admit that I was skeptical of this process, but the growth I’ve seen in myself is astounding. I feel like a better, healthier human being for knowing and learning from you.
I came to Mariya after enduring an extensive search for a therapist/life coach that would both fit and accelerate the type of life I was beginning to live, one of mindfulness and spirituality. Upon leaving each session, without fail, I find myself feeling a sense of relief, confidence and overall peacefulness within me. Throughout my time spent working with Mariya, I have noticed immense amounts of personal growth. I am more in tune with my higher self and intuition. I am able to understand what it is that I want at any given moment and have the confidence to act upon those feelings. I would recommend Mariya to anyone who is looking to get to know themselves more deeply, work on any and every personal issue that may have arisen, and ultimately become a better you! Read More
I’m simultaneously speechless and overflowing with words about my intuition sessions with Mariya. They were fun, playful, deep, intense, real, healing. After each session, even when we did things I couldn’t fully comprehend, I felt a sense of clarity and ease, walking away with renewed energy and percolating ideas about what’s possible in my life. Part therapist, part play friend, part wisdom magician, Mariya was truly wonderful to work with. I recommend her to anyone interested in living with more alignment and joy.
My session with Mariya was not only mind-blowing but physically altering. During the guided journey I felt relaxed and safe to share, feel, and express whatever came into my field of awareness. With Mariya’s help, I addressed mental, physical, social, and spiritual obstacles. I felt extreme love in parts of my body that have been numb for years. I found a sense of freedom and peace. I recommended a slice of Mariya’s magic. This was not just a session – it rippled into every part of my life. I am full of gratitude for this opportunity.
