Transformation begins with you.


Empowering women to rise from their challenges and celebrate their best selves.

From everyday struggles to the deeper wounds we may carry, I understand life for all of it’s magical messiness because of my own lived experiences. I learned how to rise out of adversity and draw from a reserve of self-empowerment within me. I became a life coach so I could help women who may be struggling, as I had, for whatever reason. I give my clients the exact tools and guideposts that helped me shift out of fear and sadness and into the life I dreamed of.  It is possible to not only survive but to thrive in motherhood. I’m living proof.


We are a mosaic.

Motherhood, much like life, is a mosaic of experiences — beautiful, unique and connected. My coaching practice celebrates the complexities of motherhood while nourishing and supporting women through all of the stages of their journey. Modern moms need their village back. And that starts with sharing and connecting. Whether you are looking for a life-changing group or private one-on-one coaching experience, I am so glad you are here. Welcome, Momma.

Let's talk. The first consultation is free

Maria is a very careful listener. She is able to take your input about yourself and present it back to you in a whole new light and perspective. After just my first session I realized how vastly important it is to have someone like Maria Carola to help us see things from a different vantage point, to get out of your own way, so to speak. She is a well-needed addition to our day-to-day living.

Maria Carola, CHC, CLC

I am a certified health + life coach, maternal health advocate and a proud single (divorced) mom of two. I am curious, passionate and silly. I love animals (can’t pass a dog without saying hello), photography (fun fact: I have a photograph in the MoMA), books (I used to be a literary publicist), naps and a gorgeous, runny poached egg. I am a terrible cook but a terrific host. I am a relentless optimist and believe that life is not what happens to us but how we handle what happens to us. Motherhood broke me wide open in the best ways possible and gave me my voice. I am honored to be able to share my experience, expertise and unstoppable passion with my clients.
