I had been putting off a whole revamp of my resume and LinkedIn page due to procrastination and self doubt. I had a session with Mar-y-Sol to review and update my resume. She did not disappoint!! I honestly can’t believe how much of a difference it made. Not only did I get my three page resume down to one page, but it also looks far more professional and my experience looks incredibly qualified for the work I’m looking to transition into. I have had resume help in the past through college career services and others. NOTHING has beefed up my resume like the direction and advice I got from Mar-y-Sol. I highly recommend her! She will help you shine all your expertise and strong qualities. She really knows what she is doing.
Mar-y-Sol brings a generous, loving spirit to her work. She is a deep listener who is able to hone in on what needs to be addressed, as well as to facilitate needed organization and new perspectives. I am so grateful for her expertise and support! I highly, and without reservation, recommend her!
Mar-y-Sol is brilliant. Her style is kind, curious, direct, and potent. She is comfortable in many worlds and wears many hats, which helped me in navigating areas as diverse as multiracial identity questions and career goals. Her ability to understand and mirror back my experience, as well as point out what I was already doing well so I could grow from my strengths is exactly the kind of encouragement I thrive on. She sees the strength and potential in you and coaxes it out in a way that feels like "how did I ever think I couldn't do this? Of course I can." Everyone deserves to have a supportive soul like Mar-y-Sol in their corner.

About me

www.EssentialWisdomCoaching.com

With over 20 years of experience in the fields of education and personal development, I am passionate about helping others grow into their whole self. As the founder of Essential Wisdom Coaching, I have developed a unique approach to guiding clients in nurturing who they are and who they were meant to be as part of the coaching process.

As each client is unique, so are the approaches used in my coaching sessions, which are based on the client’s specific situation, goals, needs, desires, and path of development - from career & academic support to finding one's life purpose, and everything in between.
Some common methods used in my coaching work are guided imagery, self-reflection, creativity, journaling, embodiment practices, meditation, symbolic artwork, eco-therapeutic modalities, and more. The emphasis is on fostering a process of growth that can gain momentum and bring more joy, growth, and balance to the client’s life.

I, too, am continuously & curiously learning and am currently working toward a Ph.D. in Integral & Transpersonal Psychology, where my research is focused on examining embodied intuition in the development, expression, and trajectory of leadership.

Growth should be an investment, not a burden. As part of my deep commitment to the accessibility of my services to a diverse clientele, I offer flexible sliding scale and/or extended payment options for all of my coaching services. Contact me for more information.

My Philosophy of Care

As a transpersonal coach, I take a holistic approach to facilitate growth and transformation in people who seek to nurture their authentic selves and show up more fully in all areas of life. Whether needing support in one or many areas of life, I work collaboratively with clients to bring forth their dreams, goals, and desires in their everyday life.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

The first coaching session dives right into discovering the client's needs, goals, roadblocks and work through processing the next steps. Coaching involves deep questioning, reflection, and action planning. Whether it's your first or fiftieth session, there's often an a-ha moment where we tap into a hidden gem or golden nugget of insight that opens the client to take enlightened action.

My Inspiration

Receiving support along my own healing and growth journey is what has inspired me to help others, and I believe that YOUR growth in working with a life coach is limitless! The individualized deep work that happens in coaching sessions often results in immense shifts in all areas of life in a much shorter timeframe than a DIY approach. If you are committed to your growth and development, working with a life coach is a valuable investment in your future.

Mar-y-Sol is brilliant. Her style is kind, curious, direct, and potent. She is comfortable in many worlds and wears many hats, which helped me in navigating areas as diverse as multiracial identity questions and career goals. Her ability to understand and mirror back my experience, as well as point out what I was already doing well so I could grow from my strengths is exactly the kind of encouragement I thrive on.

Mar-y-Sol Salinas is a powerhouse of knowledge. As a skilled coach, her strategies offer clarity and meaningful direction. The breadth of her experience encompasses a wide range of support, from transpersonal to leadership coaching. In this new world of video conferencing, she makes real connections by her warm energy. I wholeheartedly recommend Mar-y-Sol’s coaching services to anyone wanting professional and personal development.
I highly recommend working with Mar-y-Sol! She is caring, attentive, open-minded, creative, supportive and skilled! Her presentations are informative and you can apply what you learn to your life right away. She discussed topics with you in real time. She also has great PDFs that are visually pleasing. That is important because then you print them and look them- getting reminded regularly about what you've learned. It makes incorporating new skills and ideas so much easier. Plus, she will follow up with you about it. Being held accountable, at your own pace, is so important. Book a consultation or check out one of her webinars/ group sessions. You will definitely want to keep working with her!
Mar-y-Sol is such a refreshing wellness practitioner. She is no-nonsense and pragmatic while exuding warmth and approachability. She is an expert in tangible strategies for being a better student (or parenting a student), and she can go deep and esoteric with those asking broader questions around authenticity and purpose. She is exactly who I would recommend for those looking to make practical changes for doing life/work better, and she is exactly who I would point to for creative explorations into self-understanding and growth. Mar-y-Sol is a friend, a PhD colleague, and an inspiration. Her unique skillset and effective coaching methods are a great fit for so many individuals looking to thrive.
Mar-y-Sol is an attentive, experienced, and deeply attuned coach! She is continually looking for new and better ways to help her clients get the best results. Her formal training and personal experience make for a solid, well-rounded human capable of helping you traverse any issue. She is such a huge gift to the world! 😍
I took a parenting workshop that was taught by Mar-y-Sol, it was incredible. The presentation she put together was beautiful and eloquent. Mary-y-Sol kept a steady pace while simultaneously acknowledging all of the participants and answering everyone's questions. The cherry on top was the fact that she followed up with me, sent me a PDF of the presentation and a couple of charts for my keepsake! I left with a lot of knowledge and I left feeling valued.
Mar-y-Sol has been a tremendous help for my personal and business goals. She has helped me feel more aligned with my goals. I have been able to organize my thoughts and details in order to take action best suited for me. I am incredibly thankful and I know I will turn to her to help me again. I cannot say enough about her lovely services!! Thank you!
Mar-y-Sol helped me work through several projects. Her strategies sharpened my organization and management skills. With her help my department acheived the highest customer service rating across three college campuses and I received a promotion to a management position.
