Please note that even though Marina is a mental health provider in the state of Florida, her coaching practice is distinct from therapy, and is not a substitute for assistance from a trained mental health professional or doctor.


Do you put your self-love on hold, waiting until (ever unattainable) perfection is reached before you give yourself permission to rest, to exhale?

Shameless Heart Coaching is about choosing love without waiting.  For the romance, husband, wife, or the white picket fence and house with 2.5 dogs. For the perfect job, the perfect career, the pie-in-the-sky, floating-on-clouds employment opportunity. For the end of the obscenely long to-do list.  For your own inner perfection. For all those triggers to vanish, all the childhood wounds to heal, all the core beliefs in your not-enoughness to finally disappear.  

It's about choosing love now. Without waiting.  Human, flawed, imperfect. Granting yourself permission to breathe and relax your brain and be hugged and be treated with kindness, just as you are.



Shameless Heart Coaching is premised on the notion that you are already whole, perfect, and complete, that you don’t need to be fixed or made “better.” It’s about welcoming your whole self to the table, and unearthing the glimmering jewels therein. We reveal the beautiful needs that motivate even your “unsavory” self, and give you back the space, choice, and freedom to create your life and let that big light of yours shine. Something awakens -- the aliveness, wildness, and fundamentally "here"-ness that are and always were your birthright.

FIND YOUR VOICE. empower your relationships.

Do you struggle with finding the right words when the relationship s*it hits the fan, teeter-tottering between blame and judgment, and "niceness" and withdrawal?

In Shameless Heart Coaching, we use tools from Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to cultivate and hone a whole new skill set -- honesty that's connected not just to your head, but the deeper needs and values in your heart, and kindness that's not just about being "nice," but that's about being real.  

You become empowered to know how (and when) to take care of yourself in relationship challenges, how to bring up difficult conversations, how to navigate through them that leaves both of you feeling gotten, and how to foster win-win solutions. 

Shameless Heart Coaching is about mustering the guts -- and the skills -- to speak your truth in ways that connect, bridge divides, and lead to you having healthier, more alive and real relationships.  



I'm Marina.  

I am a life coach 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 and couples in not just surviving, but thriving through their communication and relationship challenges.

Work With Me


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


Marina brings a fierce commitment to self-love in her work which helped to advance my personal practice and expand my own thinking about what it means to take care of myself. She has true mastery in her ability to provide deep empathy and guidance to her clients. I SO enjoyed working with Marina and would recommend her to anyone experiencing intense, painful emotions or looking to relate to themselves in new and different ways. She is a real leader in this field and constantly pushing the boundaries of how to love ourselves and one another.

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.
