Shameless Heart Coaching


Shameless Heart Coaching

Counseling and Communication Coaching for Women, couples, and families



I am a counselor and teacher utterly committed to our evolution through the composting of shame into radical self-love.

With a decade of training in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), I help individuals, couples, and families in not just surviving, but thriving through their communication and relationship challenges.




Join a powerful group of women to learn how Nonviolent Communication (NVC) can support you in cultivating shameless aliveness, deepening self-compassion, and speaking your truth with heart in all your relationships.  Click below for details:


Work With Me


In addition to coaching for women and couples, I lead  practice groups on Nonviolent Communication as well as several workshops.


Marina is the genuine article: authentic, vulnerable, compassionate and wise. She holds a solid space for others to move boldly forward and open their hearts to themselves... Her work has opened my heart and allowed several miracles to happen in my life.
— Colleen Thomas
In every session, I felt like I met myself anew. With Marina’s gentle invitation to be authentically and genuinely me, I opened more and more to acceptance, self-love, and connection, stepping one foot at a time into the woman that I am but had never quite acknowledged.
— Erin L.
