I offer private, individual, hour-long or half-hour appointments via phone or Skype, with evening and weekend hours.  Depending on what you’re needing at the time of the session, it may take the form of my listening empathetically and witnessing whatever is emotionally present for you, or it may take the form of more active co-brainstorming or resource gathering to help you achieve a particular goal or flesh out an idea into a concrete, doable project.  Regardless, by the end of each session I am confident you will feel lighter, calmer, and more energized and focused! 

I also offer “awkward-email” consultation, using Nonviolent Communication (NVC) principles to help you to compose an original or reply email in a personal or professional setting. You may be feeling nervous or stuck about how to word certain thoughts or feelings, for the greatest likelihood of a harmonious, well-received, win-win result.  We can do these sessions live via Skype, using a shared Google document to write and edit together, or by back-and-forth email writing and editing. Hourly rates apply.

Occasionally, I also run one-day “20-minute mini-rant” phone specials for $20, if you’re simply stressed out and need to vent to a sympathetic ear; subscribe to this blog or to my email list to be notified of these specials.


1-hour stand-alone session: $95

30-minute stand-alone session: $50

These two are a good way to give it a try and see if I’m a good fit for you, or to simply have as an option for whenever you might find yourself in need some of direction, clarity, or motivation.


3 1-hour sessions (plus a free bonus 20-minute session): $285

12 1-hour sessions: $995

If you’re ready to feel lighter, clearer, stronger, and more inspired, I would love to hear from you! You can schedule a session now by email or phone at 971-303-8395.

  1. HI Maren,
    I, unfortunately, won’t be able to attend the Dec. 1st workshop due to a friends wedding. It sounds great, and I would like to attend in the future. Can you please keep me posted of when you might do this again?

    1. Thanks for your interest, Robin! Yes, I expect I will offer this again, and I will be sure to publicize it via the same channels. You can also subscribe to this blog (not totally regular yet, but I’ll get there!) with the subscription button; I’m sure I’ll announce it that way as well.

      Have a great time at the wedding!

  2. I would love to attend this event. I am so grateful to have come across the information. Is there still space for one more? The timing is so perfect in my life! How do I prepay and what else do I need to take care of to prepare?

    Thank you.

    In Love and Peace,


    1. Hi, Sarah! Thanks for your interest. I’m excited about this event too, and I’m so glad the timing is perfect for you. There is indeed space left. To prepay/register, just go to (you don’t have to have a PayPal account to do so), click the tab for “Personal,” select “Buy,” then “Make a Payment,” and fill in the form, using for the “To” email address. That should do it! At that point, I’ll have your email address, which I will use to send the workshop location address and any other relevant details as the date draws near.

      Thanks again! Looking forward to seeing you on the 1st.


  3. Good luck Maren. May your new endeavor thrive. I’ll be at a Memorial Service in Cottage Grove during the day (my 3rd in 2 weeks!!!!) and then at the friend’s wedding in Portland. Blessings on your path.

    1. Thank you, Stacy. I’m sorry to hear about your friend’s passing… and happy to hear about your other friend’s wedding. I appreciate your well wishes; perhaps I’ll see you at a future event!

    1. Hi, Rusti! (Spelling it with an I these days? Cool!)

      I’m sorry you weren’t able to make it to the workshop; we had a wonderful time! I do plan to offer it again in February, so stay tuned!

      Meanwhile, I hope all is going great for you and that your dreams are well on their way to coming true.
