As a dynamic and authentic television guest, Maria is great on camera. She excels at coaching men and women on the spot, getting to the heart of what viewers want to know about overcoming fear, reframing a seemingly negative situation, setting priorities and goals that inspire instead of overwhelm, childhood mental health and social-emotional-behavioral issues, and parenting. Her twenty years of experience as an elite child and family therapist and coach to individuals, corporate entities, and parents gives her professional insight into what men and women want out of life but are not finding these days. She’s willing to collaborate with producers as needed to conceptualize exciting media segments unique to a particular program. Maria is also available for brief appearances calling for her expertise.
Professional publications are invited to contact Maria for phone or email interviews related to any aspect of her work and expertise, including her twenty years as an elite child and family therapist or practice as an elite life, business, and parenting coach. As the go-to authority on change, overcoming fear, and parenting – she’s also available for quick quotes or insights on topically-related news items and trends.
The intimate nature of radio makes it one of Maria’s favorite mediums. She’s a “good talker,” whether for a roundtable or a two-way – sharing detailed, substantive information about the science, nature and habits of life, relationships, and parenting that draws her listeners in. Her quick thinking, down-to-earth humor, and warm personality also make her an exceptional guest for listener call-in shows, where she’s able to respond in a dynamic and compelling manner with instantly useful advice.
Maria is committed to Adventures in Jumping – Making Leaps into a Fulfilling and Meaningful Life of Purpose, and to that end, she occasionally writes lifestyle essays or topical articles for publication online or in print. If you represent a professional publication with an idea and would like her to develop a pitch, she would love to hear from you.
