Combining Western psychological approaches with ancient Eastern traditions, practices and teachings, my psycho-spiritual approach provides you with a much deeper cut than traditional coaching and/or therapy. My sessions include the option to deepen your transformational experience by including mindfulness and meditation as part of our process. Together, we will uncover, discover and discard your expired and outdated internal dialog and limiting beliefs. I will support, create space for and hold you accountable as you travel the road toward transforming your life from one of striving to one of thriving. I will guide you in creating the life you envision, no longer being used, smothered or stymied by your limiting beliefs and habitual patterns of behavior.
I offer one-on-one personalized coaching sessions in person locally at Satsang House or via Zoom or phone from anywhere in the world. Optional guided meditation can be added to your sessions. There are several convenient package options for you to choose from.
Whether you are feeling stuck and uncertain about your next steps in your work, relationships or life in general, or perhaps are new to a spiritual path or wanting to enrich and deepen your existing journey, I will support you toward rediscovering your deepest desires, interests and life’s purpose. Together we will map out your next steps and create a game plan for their execution. Let’s start with a complimentary 30 minute chat via zoom or phone.
I am a Certified spiritual life coach, meditation instructor and have fulfilled all of the requirements for the program in Compassion-Based Psychotherapy and Embodied Transformation from Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Sciences.
I incorporate ancient Eastern traditions, philosophies and meditation into my work to support you in uncovering or rediscovering your true self. Coupled with compassionate dialog and spiritual inquiry, I will guide, teach, support and mentor you along the path toward spiritual awakening. Let’s start with a quick, complimentary 30 minute call – via phone or zoom.
As a certified meditation instructor with a decades- long daily meditation practice, I bring my vast knowledge, experience and expertise to teach you the practice of mindfulness and meditation and how to incorporate meditation into a lifelong practice.

No matter where you are in the world. Maggie can connect with you for a private Zoom coaching session.
Are you ready to immerse yourself into a comprehensive guided online or in-person workshop or retreat?
Consider Maggie your spiritual friend, teacher, counselor and coach. Maggie offers several different online programs, workshops and retreats.
First of all, there is nothing wrong and nothing to fix. We all have challenges, get stuck from time to time, feel uncertain as to our next steps or allow fear to immobilize us and keep us small. That is the very nature of being human.
In my work as a life, business and spiritual coach, mentor and meditation teacher, I begin by starting right where you are. Our main work together will serve to uncover, deconstruct, rearrange and reorient the areas in your life where you feel stuck, overwhelmed, stressed and uncertain. Together we will uncover the internal dialog and conversations that are stifling your personal, physical, financial or spiritual growth. At times, we will venture to your past to discover the origination of your habitual patterns or inherited and limiting beliefs but this is not always necessary to elicit your movement toward living the life you envision. I won't give you the answers. Instead, with deep and compassionate listening, I will ask probing questions which elicit responses that ultimately trigger your transformation.
You are an integral part of the dynamic and collaborative coaching process and will engage in generating and causing your own transformation with me as your guide walking alongside and holding you accountable all the way.
If you’re feeling called or pulled in the direction of awakening to what your true purpose is in life, what you are here for or what it’s all about, having a spiritual guide, mentor and friend is a must. The spiritual journey can be a very lonely one without support and guidance along the way. Given that transformation and awakening typically occur as we look deeply into ourselves and the conversations that make up who we are, it is helpful to have someone to hold the space for you as you travel along the path. Without guidance and support throughout your self-inquiry, the journey can feel and be isolating. It’s essential to have a mentor to bounce your experiences and challenges off of who has also walked and is still walking the path.
Yes, I do, however, I strongly suggest that you incorporate the practice of meditation and mindfulness into your daily routine and make it a lifelong habit. Life has a way of distracting us, throwing us back into our habitual patterns of behavior and ways of being no matter what we do. In my personal experience as a daily meditator for over fourteen years, I feel it is paramount to your continued maturation and spiritual awakening to do a “daily reset” by regrounding, recentering and renewing yourself in the stillness of meditation each day.
I was trained by and studied with Deepak Chopra for several years. My first experience in meditation began with the practice of mantra meditation which still remains my “go to” meditation modality. However, in my weekly classes, I mix it up with visualizations, breathwork meditation, vipassana, walking and somatic meditations.
There is no one type of meditation that suits everyone. I like to expose my students and clients to various forms of meditation. The important thing is for you to find the type of meditation that resonates best with you and stick with it for long enough to see if it “fits.” I encourage my students to try all sorts of meditations and find the one that best suits them. The most important thing to remember is if you are not comfortable in your meditation practice, ultimately, you won’t want to do it. Finding the modality that best suits you is the top priority toward a lifelong practice.
My mission is to create world peace, one mediator at a time.
Every person is different and comes to coaching with their own particular needs. Coaching is a dynamic process whereby the results achieved are directly proportional to the effort and commitment you put into the process.
My biggest suggestion is that if we work together, you remain committed and dedicated to the process by not allowing more than ten days to two weeks to lapse between appointments. This sets the tone for continued progress that is tangible and quantifiable over time.
I offer several different package options from one appointment at a time to a three-month coaching agreement or recurring monthly coaching programs to make your commitment as affordable and convenient for you as possible. Again, consistency over time is really the key to your coaching success.
No. I offer all of my coaching services either via Zoom, by phone, or in person at the stunning Satsang House Meditation and Spiritual Center. I do recommend meeting in person if you are local to the San Diego area however as the Satsang House is a calming, peaceful and beautiful respite from life's craziness and a stunning place for us to meet.
Currently, I am pursuing my Master’s in Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology through Naropa University. Buddhist-inspired and nonsectarian, Naropa University is rooted in contemplative education, a teaching and learning approach that integrates Eastern wisdom studies and the arts with traditional Western scholarship. Naropa was the birthplace of the modern mindfulness movement.
Prior to my current educational pursuits, I completed my two year studies at Nalanda Institute Contemplative Sciences in Compassion-based Psychotherapy and Embodied Transformation. I am a Chopra Center Certification Meditation Instructor, have been practicing meditation twice daily for the past fourteen years and have been teaching meditation for seven years. I am also a Certified life, business and spiritual coach.
I regularly write blogs, create and lead community gatherings, host the Life Illuminated podcast, and support my local community. I am available for public speaking engagements and to lead corporate workshops. I opened Satsang House Mediation and Spiritual Center in San Diego, CA in 2016 and Satsang House Sedona (Arizona) in January of 2022. I regularly host retreats, special events, workshops and weekly meditation events.
I have been a twice daily meditator for the past sixteen years, regularly attend meditation retreats to further my own practice and understanding and maintain a daily dedicated and committed spiritual practice.
“Maggie has an amazing ability to pinpoint root issues and provide expert guidance, knowledge of meditation, and life coaching practices that have led me towards gaining a more sustainable and balanced lifestyle with my work and personal life.”
“She’s kind, compassionate, and really takes the time to get to know you. She taught me the importance of self compassion and guided me through many changes in my life. I learned how to incorporate meditation as a daily practice and the tools I gained working with her have been invaluable. If you’re looking for a life coach to help guide you in your journey, I highly recommend Maggie!”
“My experience with Maggie as my spiritual coach has been groundbreaking. We’ve been able to get down to the knitty-gritty on what it is that I came here to accomplish. The mantra meditation at the end of our sessions is just what I need to bring me back into the present, as I allow myself to just be. I look forward to our future sessions with so much appreciation for the knowledge she shares and the peace I find at the end of each session.”
“Spiritual life coaching with Maggie was uplifting, inspirational, and motivating. We put together practical and easy to implement strategies to help me move forward. I already feel shifts happening in my business and spiritual life. I am looking forward to our next session! I highly recommend Maggie!”
