I work with professional women & entrepreneurs in the areas of chronic stress & burnout, overcoming fatigue, hormonal balancing and sustainable career advancement. I believe that you deserve to love your life & that your job shouldn't come at the expense of your health & happiness.
As a Holistic Health Coach I help you break through that little voice that tells you you’re not worth it and support you in creating self-care that actually helps you heal from, instead of just cope, with stress.
Over the past 5 years I’ve coached over 400 people in overcoming chronic stress and creating fulfilling careers they love using tools like breathwork, mindfulness and somatic health practices.
Before coaching I spent 7 years as an HR consultant and program manager. I loved my companies, the teams I worked with, and the pace of life but - unfortunately - I burned out.
It took me a long time to realize that the symptoms I was living with for years were NOT normal - fatigue, brain fog, low libido, bad sleep, frequent anxiety and rumination, and hormonal problems to name just a few.
I thought this is what came with the territory of being a successful and multi-passionate New Yorker.
It wasn’t until I discovered yoga, meditation, breathwork and other mind-body health practices - that over time helped me bring down my daily stress level - that I realized how much better I can feel. This ultimately lead me to give up my 6 figure salary to focus on things I realized were most important - my health, freedom, travel and finding my real calling in life.
Today I get to work with clients 1:1 and with corporate teams - helping other women feel less stress, have more confidence, and make more money in the long run. I'm guessing you’re here because you’re ready to focus on meaningful self care (in mind, body and emotions) and own your self-worth at work.
I hope my journey serves as a reminder that you get to be calm, centered and magnetic - and you deserve to live a life that you love!

1:1 Coaching & Integration Support
1:1 Coaching is the most personalized option to help you achieve your goals. We work together for a period of 3 months to help you work on all 3 pillars of health: physical, mental and emotional. Along the way you're provided with live calls, messaging support, accountability, worksheets, and access to my online courses so you can consistently move your progress forward.
If you have been in traditional therapy & are exploring what's next - coaching creates the perfect next step!
Example topics covered: burnout recovery, adrenal fatigue, overcoming chronic stress, healing from depression and anxiety (with lifestyle tools combined with my background in mental health), somatic experiencing & mind-body connection practices, discovering your calling, advocating for a raise or a promotion at work, finding a meaningful career
In addition to the above, I support clients undergoing psychedelic therapy as an Integration Coach. If you are currently receiving ketamine treatment via a clinic and have limited integration resources - book the call below & let's discuss what your integration schedule can look like with my support.
I host virtual Women's Wellness Circles once per month, every month.
We connect around a specific monthly topic (e.g. cultivating trust, exploring personal power, forgiveness), have space to journal & share, and I guide a 45 minute Releasing Breathwork session designed to be an introduction to somatic therapy.
If you are looking for a supportive community of like-minded women, and new tools to support your wellness - this space is for you!
My 3 current online courses offered are:
Desk Yoga (coming soon)
Navigating Emotions with Grace (coming soon)
Courses are the most accessible option to get familiar with the wellness & stress relief tools we will dive deep on during 1:1 coaching.
View my list of topics for 22 different workshops & wellness sessions for corporate teams below. Sessions range from Positive Psychology, Stress Relief Tips, Breathwork for Busy Professionals & much more!

"Marina is incredible! My workplace had the pleasure of holding a virtual Stress and Resilience workshop led by her where she was wonderfully professional, personal, and thoughtful. Working from home can be tense and distracting for many of us, and it is evident that Marina thoroughly prepared for an informative and relaxing session. It was insightful listening to the scientific and physiological responses our bodies and mind have to situations, and how to equip ourselves with tools to have a healthier workplace and wellbeing. I am so glad to have been recommended to Marina and Sum of All Positive, and I highly recommend her to others! Thank you Marina!"

"High quality business workshops & events rely on engaging, skilled & knowledgeable speakers & experts. Marina delivers on all 3 points. Her workshop on Recognizing Stress & Building Resilience to our women in business community, SheConnects, was powerful, insightful and above all practical. All the women attending left with new awareness of their own experiences of stress and concrete actions & strategies to make it better. Her expertise & her compassion are clear. She's a joy to work with."
Rebecca M., SheConnects
"Marina has a contagious positive energy and working with her has been impactful. She has a wealth of knowledge on so different many accepts of wellness from spiritual to physical health. I had been a fan of her work on Instagram and I sought her coaching during a period of many transitions in my life. During our sessions, I felt relaxed and soothed because Marina has such a calm, caring presence. I loved how she focused more on the present moment and what actionable items we can do now. After the sessions with Marina, I felt optimistic and excited to try out some techniques she introduced me to. The biggest gift Marina has given me was a reminder that we have control over our own lives and there are so many tools and techniques to live life with positivity and ease."
