Top 10 Life Coaches in New Orleans, Yelp verified.

Mary Jane Walsh THRIVE offers a goal-oriented healing process that helps clients achieve breakthrough results. 

Coaching and Therapy are very different.

As a coach, I help my clients heal and experience goal achievement. In the coaching process, we start out with a goal in mind. By being specific to these goals, my clients reach their goals faster and experience the opportunity for deeper healing. 

Through the coaching process, clients build both “business-esteem” and self-esteem; become more efficient and experience more balance, calm and confidence in their business and personal lives; improve relationships and feelings of “belonging”; experience inner fulfillment while achieving their goals. 

I provide several tools customized to each client to help achieve breakthrough results while allowing for inner healing.  

Clients continually hit quarterly and yearly professional and personal milestones and develop strategy plans for continued success.

“Mary Jane asks questions that nobody else will. As an introvert, a lot of the advice I have received in the past has been extremely uncomfortable for me to follow. Mary Jane gives me challenges that I feel I can do, and I feel I can remain true to who I am in completing those challenges. I am a much more confident person now.”  ~Brandon R.

“Mary Jane immediately understood my demanding customers and unique offers as well as the deeper meaning of what I am doing. Her feedback on the phone and via e-mail was creative, spontaneous, thoughtful and well-founded. She goes into detail and keeps an eye on the big picture. She is persistent without being pushy. Through her I have discovered new possibilities and accesses to the people I want to reach with my message. Mary Jane, thank you very much for your dedicated support.”  ~Dr.Jan Hendrik Taubert, Personal Confidant, Financial Intermediary and Attorney-at-Law, Zurich, Switzerland.

“Mary Jane gave a wonderful presentation to our employees. She is personable, vibrant, and enthusiastic. Her program rated at the top for the year. She has an innate ability to connect with the audience that gives each attendee the feeling that they had their own personalized session. I highly recommend Mary Jane. You will not be disappointed.” ~Patricia Bachemin, U.S. Department of Agriculture

“I’m new to formal coaching and Mary Jane made it very easy to ease into working together. I was very nervous and anxious because the coaching field is very wide and trust is hard for me. I mostly appreciated how Mary Jane really really listened. I appreciated and loved that we eased into the work, because it’s easy to jump ten steps ahead but what I needed was smaller steps to get to a larger goal. The action steps Mary Jane helped me around building leads- the “inch wide and mile deep” metaphor was very powerful, because I have a lot of different people in my network but being strategic about who to reach out to and helping me identify the simple and effective exercise was really neat and helpful.” ~Jean P.

She has made a tremendous difference in helping me get my career started and guiding me in the right directions to better myself. ~Alexandra D. 

…”Mary Jane helped me realize it was me standing in my own way and gave me the pep talk I needed to hear. Mary Jane listened to what I had to say and I left feeling energized and more determined to chase my dreams and make them a reality. Thank you Mary Jane.” ~Sarah Hooper, Mom + Wife + Entrepreneur, Queensland
