Hi, I'm Mariya

I help you fall in love with yourself, and your dreams so that you have the courage, wisdom, and tenacity to co-create them - one step at a time. 

I help you see all the creative ways you make yourself small and unimportant (i.e., self-sabotage) so that you can step out into your true magnificent self and live your life from the place of self-love and self-respect. 

I have helped my clients get dream partners, recover from a deep mental illness, start their own business, get higher-paying jobs, write books, create meaningful relationships with their children, move to new cities, and more. 

I do this by teaching you how to put yourself first, trust your intuition and inner guidance, work through your limiting beliefs, tap into the magical support of the Universe, honor your body, heal your inner child wounds, and recalibrate your energy. 

The best gift you can give to anyone is being yourself.  

I am a former tenured university professor turned spiritual guide, intuitive life & business coach/mentor. I am an author of 2 books, 50+ publications, 100+ presentations, and an award-winning educator, with appearances on TV and podcasts. 

Beyond all these titles is a caring heart that has experienced much in life. 

Love, ❤️

We have all  grown up in a society that prioritized conformity and smallness

  • What if you could relax into your true creative and intuitive Self? And stop giving your power away to anyone else?

  • What if your service to the world merged with your personal happiness so that you no longer sacrifice your mental, physical, and spiritual health for the "common good"?

  • What if self-love became your daily practice, not out of grandiosity, but out of necessity. Because you give to others only what you know yourself. 

  • What if you stopped manipulating & controlling things. And trusted more - you could have better sex, make more money, have amazing relationships, and enjoy your life?


Because the old way doesn't work - it leads to overwork, stress, illness, scarcity mindset, personal complexes, conflicts, punishment, ill parent-child dynamics, lack of creativity, disempowerment, anger, disease, and violence. 

Cheers to the new world!

And the new YOU❤️
