Who am I?

My name is Mary-Allison Mays, and I am a Certified Holistic Life Coach with years of experience in the counseling and coaching fields. I am deeply passionate about my work and find immense joy in helping others achieve their full potential.

I offer a heart-centered, solution-focused approach to shifting and transforming difficult issues in your life. I believe that everyone has the capacity for healing and growth, and I am honored to create a safe and supportive space for clients to connect with their authentic selves, identify and process difficult emotions, and resolve deep-seated issues.

My work is grounded in the belief that we all have the power to create positive change in our lives. I am committed to helping clients awaken to the limitless possibilities that exist within them, and to removing the blocks that are preventing them from living their lives to the fullest.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I had the privilege of working with clients online. This unique experience allowed me to provide support and guidance to individuals who were facing unprecedented challenges. I was humbled by the courage and resilience of my clients as they navigated the complexities of working from home, caring for loved ones, and dealing with the uncertainty of the pandemic.

In addition to my work as a Certified Holistic Life Coach, I have also served as a Credentialed Substance Abuse Counselor in the state of New York. For many years, I worked with adults, teenagers, inmates, and various groups in therapeutic settings. This experience has given me a deep understanding of the challenges that people face when struggling with addiction and other mental health issues.

I am deeply committed to helping others find healing and transformation. If you are seeking support on your journey of self-discovery and growth, I would be honored to walk alongside you.

The secret to change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new
