Ignite Your Potential helps you clarify and activate what’s next.


Ignite Your Potential has been helping results-oriented individuals and industry giants achieve their highest goals. We are all seasoned professional coaches with extensive expertise in psychology, the neurobiological basis for behavioral, trauma-informed, motivational change.

We meet clients virtually from centers in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles.


Many of our clients come from varied backgrounds and each has unique challenges to overcome or areas of growth they want to focus on.

Many have experienced life changes such as loss of employment, promotion, new marriage, divorce, grief from the death of a loved one, onboarding at a new job, enjoying and grappling with parenthood, planning retirement, and many other life experiences where the support of a thought partner and coach can make the journey more empowering and more easily successful.

Others are dealing with stress affecting performance or motivation.

Our California career coaching and New York career coaching, our executive coaching, and life coaching have helped many clients over the last 15 years. Get started with one of our coaches today.

“I've had a wonderful experience. When we first started working together, I was at a stressful and frustrating point in my career and considering a change. We dove deep and explored every option, leaving no stone unturned. We developed methods to evaluate every potential route I could have taken, discussed the pros and cons of big decisions, and worked together to create a vision of my future that I wanted--then made a plan to achieve it.”
“From the first call we had together I knew we had a great connection and I had complete faith in her. Not only did Mara help me do a deep dive into what I wanted to do with my career by exploring all options, but also took me on a journey of discovering what I want from life. Mara has a gift of being wise and has a great sense of humor, which is infectious. I always felt so energized and inspired after our calls. Do yourself a favor and give her a call. One last tip, spend time to do the homework, you will benefit so much from it.
“Life changing! I sought career counseling because I was fired from my job and needed support for my interviews. My counselor was instrumental in not only helping me through this terrible time but gave me the confidence for my interviews. She had extensive knowledge in all areas of psychology, neuroscience, and company and career dynamics. She knows what to say to support the issue at hand. She is intuitive to get to the root cause and helps guide toward a solution. In the two months we worked together, I gained confidence and landed my dream job!”
