About Marije

If you're in that space where you don't like how your life is turning out, then I'd love to work with you. I love coaching, I've been coaching for well over ten years and it's such a gift to see how my clients' lives transform and become happy... 

I started my own journey many years ago. At that time I realized there was much more to me than I dared showing the world. Over the course of my life I have had many experiences: from immigrating from The Netherlands to the US, to marriage, divorce and remarriage, to being employed, self-employed and both, to traveling the world and finally settling down and creating roots for my daughters…

These many changes in my life have shown me my inherent courage and strength, something I recognize in the many women I meet when traveling all over the US. Often we women use this strength on a daily basis without even realizing it. We take care of our family, our parents, our work and keep the household running smoothly. All the while we forget our relationship to ourselves. Until something happens that makes us realize we sold ourselves short. Suddenly we find ourselves on this Journey, one that teaches us more about our dreams, our loves, our desires and our gifts.

This Journey is what my work with my clients is all about. About learning and recognizing and reconnecting with yourself and daring to share your true self with the world. Yes, it is about change, but one that you shape with deep care and grace.

My work has always revolved around motivating and supporting others to live the life they love. Most often, this includes learning to be gentle with ourselves. Currently, I work at a company where I train coaches and other professionals in Stress Reduction and Emotional Management, and I maintain my personal coaching business with individual clients. I also receive much fulfillment from a weekly class I teach as a volunteer for a local non-profit organization, helping incarcerated women get back onto their feet.

As a CCE Board Certified Coach with an interest in many spiritual practices, I feel honored to be part of your Journey. I am a HeartMath® Coach and Trainer, a Human Design Consultant, Reconnective Healing® and Reconnection® Practitioner, a Core Dynamics Trainer and Certified Comprehensive Coach.

    Marije, I wanted you to know that the techniques you introduced me to, have been very powerful.

    Things are definitely moving… I am feeling more at peace and just more neutral… and I’ve had two people in the past two days say that I look “much better” – I guess maybe the Munch scream is fading?? :-)

    I’ve thought of you often since our last session and just want to say THANK YOU.

    You guided me through a very powerful process. We dove right into what has been a core and circulating issue since the beginning – trust – and you left me with a powerful question that I have worked with since. It lead me to some very powerful realizations/experiences bringing a glimpse of previous understanding FAR deeper, into the experiential level.

    It took on very visceral, healing and immediate meaning after our session. I feel very comforted, my questions about having observed so much pain answered. I understand, I’m not fighting against what is. It has REALLY REALLY HELPED. Thank you so much, Marije.

    Marije came into my life at a time when I needed her desperately, and didn’t even realize it. She had the insight to see my dilemma before I did, and she brilliantly pulled me out of the rut I was sinking further into. I had been making life and family decisions based on all the wrong reasons. I was so busy keeping up with life’s daily demands, that I never stopped to think about what I wanted out of life, and where I had hoped I would be at this point in time. Marije got to the heart of my problems with her finely-tuned listening and paraphrasing skills, which resulted in brilliant insights about me, I had never known before. She probed deep into the core root of my long, lost dreams and desires to find out what I truly wanted in life. Her homework assignments taught me to be honest with my true, inner self. After just a few sessions with Marije, and my new positive outlook, my life began to improve.

    Within weeks, I was offered a new and exciting career in a beautiful community where, I know my family and I will be happy forever. I know, now, that I’m on my true path in life. Marije is not like a psychologist or counselor that just listens to my problems. She’s that guardian angel we all secretly desire that truly has my best interests at heart, and wants me to succeed for me. She’s brilliant!!!

    There is no greater investment I could have made. It’s an investment in myself… and my family’s future happiness.
