“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” ~Aristotle

What I Believe:

Thank you for visiting the site! For almost 15 years I have helped foster and facilitate journeys for all.  My belief is that you possess everything you need to know, create, and make choices for a clear, peaceful, and happy life. I am merely a guest, welcomed into that process.

Who I Am:

I am a sojourner and life learner who is a seeker of that which is bigger than me.  Part of that personal evolution is self-realization, which allows me to be exceptionally present for my clients.  Integrity, fairness, light-heartedness, and professionalism rank among the top of my value system.  I currently hold an MA in Pastoral Ministry, Certification in Life Empowerment Coaching, Education in Spiritual Direction, and RYT-200 status in Yoga.   I continue my learning with workshops, reading, classes, and meditation.

What I Do:

I foster and facilitate moments in life that call you to be present and take notice.  Whether you are getting married or renewing vows, seeking, want to learn more about yourself or make a plan, get through a rough patch or move your body for life-long wellness, I will be there for you. Ask me more about ceremonial celebrations, life or spiritual coaching, retreats and workshops, or Yoga!

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
– Rumi, as interpreted by Coleman Barks


“Working with Jean Marie as a coach has enabled me to realize how strong and capable a woman I am physically, emotionally and spiritually. Coaching, coupled with her retreats, has brought out strength and resilience which benefited me in many ways. Her coaching and retreats have given me the opportunity to develop deeper and more fulfilling relationships while developing a sense of peace within my heart. I’m very grateful!”

– Barbara S. (Long Valley, NJ), Life Coaching Testimonial

“Our wedding ceremony with Jean Marie was absolutely wonderful. She was very professional, patient and very nice. It was our wedding our way like she always said. The ceremony was beautifully personalized. Our guests told us afterward that they have never seen a wedding ceremony this beautiful! She made a last minute organization seem like it was something that we prepared years. ”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed both yoga and meditation classes from Jean Marie. She is extremely knowledgeable and shares her wealth of experience. She offers you a challenge but is always there with modifications, props, and alternatives. Her approach is refreshing and inspiring.”
