From Survival to Freedom
Heal Through Divorce & Rediscover Who You Are

You don’t have to take this journey alone.

As a divorced mom myself,

I know what it takes to untangle a divorce:

I know the feelings of guilt and shame

I know what it feels like to lose yourself completely

I know how unsafe it feels to be in your body

I know what it’s like to have to defend and prove yourself worthy

I know what it feels like to believe that you failed in some way

I know all the fears that divorced moms face, intimately.

And I know that there’s a way out – by going in.

I want to help you Rediscover and Reclaim your power through a journey back to the truth of YOU.

From Survival to Freedom

Heal Through Divorce & Rediscover Your Truth

“I didn’t expect to let go of the hate I had been harboring. I knew at some point I would be able to (need to) forgive and move on, but in working on myself and loving myself, learning to be genuine to myself, I developed the ability to let go and feel like I am living fully.” 


I have been in therapy for 11 years. I felt that my progress was stagnant. To be honest, I hadn’t ever explored coaches. I know Marisa is a divorce coach, but to me she is much more than that. I have been able to work with her on my issues with childhood trauma, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, intimacy issues, family issues, and so much more.

I have seen more progress in my life in the last three months I have worked with Marisa than I have in the 11 years I went to therapy.


Hi,I’m Marisa,
and I’ve been where you are

I had to get to a point in my life where not only did I know that doing the same thing over and over again was insane, but living it was so painful that I had to make some new decisions. I couldn’t keep doing what I was doing, and I also couldn’t blame others around me for keeping me stuck.

Why Hire a Divorce Recovery Coach?
  • You’re tired of carrying guilt and shame as constant companions
  • Blaming others for your pain is keeping you stuck in victim mode
  • You’re tired of feeling powerless
  • The pain you are carrying is causing conflict with you & your children
  • You realize that your children aren’t responsible for your happiness

I’m familiar with each of these – intimately – because I’ve experienced them myself.

Advice From My Attorney

In this interview you’ll get to meet my lawyer, Mr. Nick Salick of Salick Family Law, in Beverly Hills. He is the lawyer who represented me in my divorce case.

The only reason that I can now have this conversation with him after eight years is that I have done the work to heal from this painful experience.

Let me say that the thought of talking to a family law attorney for me is like going to the dental office—not a pleasurable experience.

Honestly, it gives me knots in my stomach. I don’t want to contribute to any more stress you might be feeling, only to provide you with enough information to put you at ease and get you to start thinking about asking the right questions.

Marisa has helped me find my strength

Marisa is my life coach as well as my boyfriends, she is the absolute best. She helps me discover the best version of myself, and helps to inspire me to bring out the answers I already have inside me that I couldn’t find before. I love how open-minded she is and how she shares all of her tools she has learned. She has truly helped me through the toughest hardship of my life thus far and has helped me not only cope with the situation but also grow stronger from it.

I trust her wholeheartedly so much that I referred my boyfriend to her and he now sees her as well. Marisa has been a huge part of me and my boyfriends successful and well-balanced relationship. I would highly recommend her to my closest friends and family. Marisa has helped me find the strength inside of me I already had and helped me bring it to the surface and for that, I am forever grateful to her.



she gives your exactly what you are capable of working on at the moment

We clicked immediately and I absolutely trusted her with my life.  She takes you right where you are in your journey.  She doesn’t give you more or less than what you are capable of at the moment. I highly recommend Marisa!



Marisa, you have changed my life!

You saved me from self doubt. My new life as a mom, wife, career woman just threw me off the happy and comfort I was used to. I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. Since I have been working with you, I am less anxious and much more confident. I worry less. I live more!
