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.


New! Shamelessly Alive Women's course 


Join women across the nation via telecourse 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.
