I would recommend this work to anyone. It will truly change your life!​

Prior to working with Maria I felt like life just wasn't moving forward. I was in a stagnant relationship, a stagnant place in my personal growth, and it just seemed that my life was going nowhere. I was in a "comfort zone" but it was empty and unfulfilling-

In just five months, my life has completely changed! I am on a new trajectory in life. I learned that I didn't really love myself, and that was the thing holding me back. For the first time, I am able to see who I really am--that I come from Source and that Source is only love. Now I see life through a new lens.

I feel like I have been reborn into a new reality of love.


"Maria has played a vital role in my spiritual development. She has led me through processes that have shed light and love on the deepest parts of my being, allowing a healing unlike anything I have ever experienced. 

Her wisdom is ageless and infinite. Working with her has allowed me to powerfully step into the highest and most pure level of self.” 


She was an enchanting teacher that had entered my life for an exceptionally important and greater purpose!

I truly feel some of the most magical moments of my life occurred in the safe and sacred space Maria created for me and am so grateful that she is here on this earth to share her innate wisdom. 

For anyone who is feeling lost, incomplete, and in dire need of guidance and spiritual alignment, Maria can be your life coach, teacher, shamaness and more.  I am counting down the days until I can see her again and am so grateful she is here on this Earth to share her innate wisdom.
