Stop confusing movement with progress

Focus on what matters, and learn to put that first

Chart a strategic course to reach your destination

Do you feel like you're running in place no matter how hard you try to move?

Plans are good, but then life gets in your way. To achieve happiness, you need a predictable course to help you arrive safely at your destination. Without one, you might feel like you’re…

Lacking the confidence to get what you want out of life?

Missing a clear picture about what you want in life?

Burned out and resigned to "it is what it is" thinking?

Struggling to build lasting, fulfilling relationships?

Constantly stressed out, unable to manage effectively?

Letting fear stop you from getting that big promotion?

If you’re wondering if it’s even possible to change, you’re not alone. It’s time to overcome your fear and achieve real results. If you don’t start, you’ll never finish. 

You deserve the life you want to live

Chart a Clear Course to Fulfillment with a Professional Life Coach to Guide You

Life is busy, and hectic. We all feel that way at times. As a professional life coach, and mentor, I help you assess where you are, and figure out what you want. Then, you can chart a clear course to break your journey down to manageable steps. You steer the ship, and I help you out with the grunt work.

Start Focusing on What Matters

Are you bored, in a rut or just thinking, “Is this as good as it gets?” I help you get unstuck, and move forward in your career and personal relationships. As an ICF and Certified MentorCoach, as well as an experienced professional, I help you take stock of where you are now, and where you want to be. 

Then, we make your journey forward simpler by breaking it down, and using strategies that work for you. I’ll be there to support you along the way.

Whether you’re building a business, growing a career or just managing life, it’s not easy. But, there are options available that can make it easier, and more joyful.

Client Review

I believe our ability to introspect improves and we course correct ourselves in many areas of life. While that is good, it is also true that it becomes hard to change oneself and overcome bad habits, biases, etc. For years I would listen to inspirational talks, read self-help books and articles, etc. While those inspire one in the moment, they seldom help with making long term changes.

Enter Mary! I loved the approach of first identifying my top 5 strengths and 5 weaknesses and then coming up with a plan to work on those while also making sure they are in line with my overall goals and daily to-do’s. This is work in progress, but I feel I will be able to enhance my strengths and overcome my weaknesses, with Mary’s help. A structured approach, with someone who can keep you honest is the right way to work on oneself.

Mary’s industry experience is a huge plus. I would highly recommend Mary for your coaching needs!

No matter what challenge you may be facing, you have a better chance at tackling it successfully with a coach and mentor to help you through the process. I’ve been lucky enough to have worked with Mary when I needed to navigate through changes and make decisions that seemed daunting at the time. With her listening skills and quick analysis, she helped me understand what was holding me back and then to break things down into manageable parts in order to achieve my goals. Mary has an exceptional ability to provide frank and neutral advice which has helped me tremendously with my personal development and in sustaining improved relationships with others. She is a highly effective listener which allows her to focus on what needs to be worked on; and her positive attitude gives you the momentum to get going. It’s a great feeling to have Mary in your corner, encouraging your progress and holding you accountable as you navigate changes and work toward new goals.

Mary Cioffi, Life Coach: I met with Mary six times in 2021. Admittedly, I was skeptical as to the process as well as if this was the avenue I should go down hopefully allowing me to get out of my own way. I was at a crossroad of analysis paralysis and needed to put a few matters to bed, get them into perspective, and move on. Mary, in my experience, is a super star. She was easy to speak to and her approach was spot on in getting me to where I've needed and wanted to be on a few personal challenges I've unilaterally attempted to tackle for quite some time. Well done and hats off.
I've been working with Mary for the last year and in doing so have experienced a rejuvenated sense of self and purpose. Her style and techniques have worked wonders! I'm so very grateful for her humor, sincerity, support, encouragement, and patiences. -- If you are considering a life coach I would strongly recommend Mary. #FirstMateLifeCoach #TakeControl #MapOutYourJourney #EnjoyTheRide

While working on my first startup over pandemic, Mary was a guiding light that knew how to ask the right question to see a bigger picture and find the one thing that needs to get done today to move both my business and my life forward. It is hard to find such people who can empathize with realities of fast-pace work environment, are genuinely interested in your success, and have expertise to help. Mary is an absolute gem!
