Hi, I’m Marissa. I’m a bestselling author, speaker, and lifestyle wellness coach.

I am committed to empowering women to lead more fulfilling and authentic lives—lives where they have the self-awareness to nurture their own needs, the confidence to deviate from social norms, and the courage to show their vulnerability to others.

On a personal note…

I am an eating disorder survivor. I published my first book, Starving In Search of Me: A Coming-of-Age Story of Overcoming an Eating Disorder and Finding Self-Acceptance and it became a #1 Amazon New Release. Now I’m working on my second book, Everyone Is a Freak: Anonymous Confessions About Sex, Sexuality, and Desire, which will be published in March 2019. As an introvert, a highly sensitive person, and a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I’ve never fit society’s definition of “normal.” I’ve felt insane at points of my life—riddled with social anxiety, overwhelmed by social expectations and by the demands of daily obligations. Then, after years of self-reflecting and experimenting, I figured out how to pave my own path and create a life I love.

I want to share with you the tools that have

transformed my life…




My 12-week virtual coaching program designed to help you reduce stress and anxiety, increase self-confidence, improve your relationships, and simplify your life.
