About Maria

Creator of the Life By Design program, founder of 10-Minute Parenting, and author of Parenting Infants & Toddlers Without Going Nuts!


I’ve devoted my life to helping individuals, families, and corporate entities improve their lives and businesses by aligning with their most meaningful goals and purpose. We'll examine the root cause of what's been holding you back; set meaningful goals in alignment with your purpose; reverse-engineer the real-life, bite-sized strategies to get you there; and create the step-by-step action plan that will ensure your success because you'll be willing to follow through consistently.

As a child and family therapist, I’ve been speaking professionally for over 25 years, helping people to understand and to improve their relationships with their children, relationships with their customers, and to improve their lives. I'm fiercely devoted to my own personal development and practice what I preach. My personal mentors include Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, and Iyanla Vanzant. (Plus, many more...)

I’ve been successfully working with adults, children, and families for nearly 30 years. My experience spans from child and family therapy, child welfare, individual and family therapy (including substance abuse, sexual abuse, and childhood trauma), to life and business coaching on stress and time management, relationships, sales, and communication.

I’m known for delivering the most practical, most easy to implement, fun, and highest quality small business and personal development training out there. That’s because I genuinely care about you and I am committed to helping you create the life and career or business you want while making the process easy, entertaining, and fun.
