Life Coaching

Helping you get from where you are to where you want to be . . .

When was the last time you had someone focus entirely on YOU to help you achieve your goals and dreams?

As a professional Certified Life Coach (CLC), I can help you achieve your goals and dreams in every area of your life.

THE FOCUS IS ALWAYS ON YOU!

Do you want something more out of life? Are you stuck in a rut or confused about what direction to take? Do you feel frustrated with your current situation but don’t know how to change it?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be a candidate for coaching. Why not find out for sure by taking advantage of my free 15-minute consultation? Together we will determine if coaching is for you and, if it is, we’ll determine if you and I are a good coaching match.

If, after your free session, we make a mutual decision to work together, you will get results. Guaranteed! After only one month of coaching, you’ll be amazed at the positive changes in your life. You’ll feel excited about getting up in the morning because you will finally know your life purpose and be working toward it.

I specialize in Personal Life Coaching, Time Management and Organization, Women’s Issues, Business/Career Coaching, Spiritual Development from a Christian perspective, Young Adults (18-30), Writers/Artists, Christians, and Retirees (Don’t Retire; Refire!). I also do Group Coaching.

My goal is to help you get from where you are to where you want to be!

Former client Tracy Chance sums it up best: “Being coached has helped me develop a real, concrete plan to become the wife, mother and business woman I want to be. For me, being coached was like having a personal trainer for my mind.”

Client Testimonials

Dr. Diorio was very helpful in helping me to reexamine my dreams and to overcome my fears in pursuing them. Her warmth and caring reach very deeply… right into the very spot that hurts in the heart and helps to bring accomplishment out of pain. Her Christ-like example and Godly wisdom help point ones like me–who have gotten too wrapped up in life’s issues–back on the right trail of dreams 🙂 Thank you so very much for taking time out of your life to bless others. You have helped me dream bigger in my diamond business and in my music ministry.” – Melanie L. Wilson (Millville, New Jersey)

“Thank you so much for your brilliant reply. I am very impressed with your abilities so far in helping me. And coming from a super skeptic, that is quite a compliment!”  – Gary Farms (Mays Landing, New Jersey)

* * * *

“Dr. Diorio has a soothing way of developing a person’s ability to discuss weaknesses and strengths while maintaining a positive focus. She is a gifted teacher and mentor.” Esther Hughes (Mullica Hill, New Jersey)

* * * *

“Having a chance to reflect on life goals in the company of someone who takes the time to listen–really listen–was a real treat. Life gets so busy, that I often forget to consider what’s really important when making everyday decisions. The free coaching session helped me focus on my goals and remember to make choices based on those goals.” – Linda Wacyk (Grand Ledge, Michigan)

“Mary Ann’s Free Conference with me was like jump-starting an old car with a dead battery. On a day that rain fell steadily, refreshing our drought-stricken South Carolina soil, her suggestions were just as refreshing for me. They revived long-forgotten memories of avenues for renewing a writing ministry from my home.”  – Katherine Rampey (South Carolina)

* * * *

“I must confess I was not certain just what to expect but assured myself that, by relaxing and leaving it up to you as the ship’s captain, the course ofour conversation would bring positive results. And guess what: That’s exactly what happened…. I was left with a feeling of accomplishment and a determination to forge ahead with the Lord always there. Knowing what one desires, how to go about achieving it, and with good counseling, [one] cannot help but produce positive results.”  – Roba McCleod (Bridgeton, New Jersey)

“The stresses of an empty nest, caring for my father in the final stages of cancer, dealing with the estate paper work, and working full time as an elementary school assistant principal left me with little time or energy to devote to my goal of becoming an established writer. Mary Ann helped me balance my responsibilities and my personal priorities. She never “told” me what I should do, but helped me to discover what I was allowing to keep me from my goals. Her gentle questions allowed me to see my situation in the light of truth and helped me define and choose to take actions to move closer to my goals each week. Mary Ann is an encourager who sincerely cares about each of her clients. I was most impressed that she began and ended each session with prayer.” – Vie Herlocker (Leesburg, Virginia)

“When I initially contacted Dr. Diorio about coaching, I thought I probably would not use her because her credentials were so outstanding that I felt she would be unapproachable or too sophisticated for my style. I couldn’t have been more wrong. From the moment we began talking I sensed her keen insight and sensitivity to me and to the Holy Spirit. What a marvelous coaching relationship this has been. Hand in hand with Holy Spirit and Mary Ann, I have marched forward into dreams that I have long held, but couldn’t quite capture and bring to fruition. Some thought patterns that have held me back for many years have been dissolved and directions that I have long desired to take have gained clarity like I never expected. I had worked with a coach several years before, but had no idea that the coaching process could be this enlightening and enriching. I cannot adequately express the joy that I am feeling as I move forward in my mission. Mary Ann has become much more than a coach; she is a dear friend on the other side of the continent!” – Marlee Huber (Everett, Washington)

“I had dreams with no direction, no perseverance, no commitment. That has changed after many years, in a very short time. I have been working with Mary Ann … for the past eight weeks…. I cannot tell you how much it has changed my life, attitude, and interest. I have more directed enthusiasm, focus, control of my time, knowledge of what is important to me, and a real understanding of my place with Jesus and His Father; knowing how much He loves me. I have found a calmness of spirit that I have been searching for a lot of years. I am finally on a path where I feel comfortable with me and that has been a long time coming. I have a lot of work to do, but a whole new “Jim” has been revealed to me and, with God’s help, I hope to make him who he has always dreamed of being.”  – Jim Connelly (Avalon, New Jersey)

“The coaching was wonderful and very well put together.”
 – Devata White (Atlantic City, New Jersey)

“I found the group coaching experience (for writers) very rewarding. The initial emphasis of the sessions was on character development, and it was extremely helpful to be reminded that there is a crucial correlation between writing instruction and personal discipline and growth. The information MaryAnn shared on writing, setting goals, and strengthening one’s walk with the Lord [gave me] tools that I will use always, in all things. The encouragement MaryAnn provided is helping me succeed and to walk in what God has called me to do. MaryAnn truly has a gift for encouraging, motivating and inspiring one to be the best [he] can be.”–Karen Lange (Cape May Court House, New Jersey)

“Coaching with Dr. Diorio has drastically changed my life for the better. She is a wealth of accurate information and positive direction. I felt as though I were standing beneath a waterfall trying to get a glass of water. She has enabled me to nurture assertive courage within myself I was never able to develop independently. Her knowedge and experience are landmarks in developing my full potential. Her spiritual guidance and biblical virtues are priceless treasures! I consider myself privileged to have the opportunity to work with her. Thanks to Dr. Diorio, I have learned how to rearrange my life to accommodate my priorities and not remain a victim of circumstance.”
 – Janet Alario (Colts Neck, New Jersey)

“I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you what a positive thing being coached by you has been. I found being coached by you put me in touch with goals and priorities that are really important to me. I’ve really had to think hard about where I’m going and how I’m going to get there. I’ve gained some really useful tools to make life changes that I’ve been trying to make for years! Anything is achievable if you have a clear plan. Being coached has helped me develop a real, concrete plan to become the wife, mother and business woman I want to be. For me, being coached was like having a personal trainer for my mind. Just as when I work out at the gym I always accomplish more with a trainer than I would on my own, I found having a life coach kept me focused on my core values and goals. Because someone was watching, I made sure to stay on the right course. I’ve developed some good habits that will keep me going in the right direction. Thank you for helping me identify the right path.”–Tracy Chance (Millville, New Jersey)

“To anyone who is questioning whether to contact MaryAnn or not, I would encourage you to ‘Go for it!’ She immediately made me feel at ease, like I was talking to an old friend. After listening, she encouraged and helped me to set goals, recognize what might keep me from those goals, and then come up with solutions to overcoming those hindrances so I could reach my goals. Her words are bathed in prayer and always in harmony with God’s Word. I thank God for directing me to her and for her abilities to serve others as a life coach.” –Rose McCauley (Cynthiana, Kentucky)

“Dr. MaryAnn Diorio has been a true blessing in my life! I searched for a long time to find the right business/life coach. After much research and prayer, the Lord brought me MaryAnn. She has helped me to organize both my personal and professional life. MaryAnn is a Godly Woman who has helped me realize that with Christ I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. She is a great listener who is compassionate and caring. I would encourage anyone who is looking for direction in life to contact Dr. Diorio! I am blessed to call Maryann my coach, my friend, and most important, my sister in Christ.”
–Joe Silva (Clifton, New Jersey)

“From my first conversation with MaryAnn, the “free consultation,” I KNEW she could help me. I was stuck in a rut of indecision, sporadic motivation and lack of direction. Although I sincerely wanted to improve my life, I was not able to ?get my car out of park?, as she so lovingly observed! Each session included prayer, thought-provoking questions, and specific assignments that led me to discover (or re-discover) who I am and where I am going at this season of life. The key concepts have become valuable tools that I return to often. MaryAnn is a coach, not a miracle worker. She gave me the equipment, the approach and the encouragement I needed to work my way out of the rut and back into a fulfilling life. Practical skills for practical life is what life coaching with MaryAnn is all about.”
–Kim Bunton (Rock Port, Missouri)

* * * *

“I appreciate MaryAnn’s willingness and eagerness to use her God-given gifts and talents to help others. While she does not ‘tell’ one what to do, she provides counsel and sincere prayer. For those things, I am most grateful.”
–Chris Strittmatter (Vineland, NJ)

* * * *

“My experience of coaching was like having a light turned on. Whereas before I was floundering in confusion, I now have a new direction to take and also the confidence to take it. Thanks, MaryAnn.”
–Sharon Beth Brani (Culpeper, Virginia)

“Dr. Mary Ann was truly a Godsend in my life, at a time when God was pushing me towards my life transformation process. Dr. Mary Ann’s prayers, wisdom, guidance and sweet spirit provided me with nutrients to feed my growth. God showed me how much he loves me by sending Dr. Mary Ann down my path of life.”
–Faith Manning (Pennsauken, New Jersey)

* * * *

“I was familiar with life coaching, but searching for a Christian coach who truly let the Holy Spirit lead. I found that in Mary Ann, and much more. Through our sessions, lifelong obstacles were removed and healing took place by the power of prayer. I immediately began to experience focus and clarity to reach my goals. She helped me to rediscover the joy and excitement of the purposes God placed in me. Instead of living according to old codes of survival, she helped me discover God’s code of glory for me. I have courage to tackle projects that overwhelmed me before. I am now in the process of writing a novel which God placed in my heart many years ago. Thank you, Mary Ann, for allowing God to use you in my life.”
–Sue Eubanks (Montrose, Alabama)

“Mary Ann Diorio may not be a licensed therapist but she’s an amazing coach. I decided to utilize her talent because I wanted to work with someone who knows the Scriptures well and how to apply them to my life circumstances. It was convenient and thought provoking and you dont have to drive to your appointment. The work I did with Mary Ann was helpful and her guidance was very much appreciated. If you are thinking about working with Mary Ann to resolve an issue(s) I would encourage you to take that next step and contact her today.”–Jill Nutter, MSW, LISW (Cincinnati, Ohio)

* * * *

“Mary Ann has been used by the Holy Spirit in my life, week after week, to lead me into deep new truths about myself. Her knowledge of the Word of God brings biblical truth into every session. She asks just the right question at just the right time, helping me to unveil changes in my thinking and behavior that are helping me live a more fulfilling life. She helped me discover who I have been created to be, and sifted out who I was merely told I was. Thank you, Mary Ann!”
–Barbara Burge (Salem, Oregon)

“I searched and spoke to various coaches, and I knew from the first time I spoke to Dr. Diorio that she was exactly what I was looking for in a Christian Coach. Dr. Diorio has a keen ability to get past the client and connect with the real person. She did a fantastic job in helping me rediscover my spiritual gifts and personality traits. This process proved to be very effective in providing direction regarding my career and mission. She uses Scripture very effectively, applying it existentially, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the Scriptures. My time with Dr. Diorio was like meeting Jesus at the well. It quenched my thirst and left me wanting more of Him. Thank you, Dr. Diorio, for being the Face of Grace in my life.”–Joe Ramos (San Juan, Puerto Rico)

“I was feeling pretty worn out and losing sight of what is important in life. From our first meeting when MaryAnn opened with prayer, I knew I had chosen the right coach. Her calming and encouraging voice along with her Godly wisdom helped me tremendously. She has a way of getting to the heart of the matter and helped me gain a broader insight along with guiding me in practical solutions. The additional resources she recommended perfectly related to my situation and were very helpful.”
–Sandra Mallisham (San Antonio, Texas)

“I really enjoyed working with Dr. Maryann. She is Spirit filled and allows the Holy Spirit to lead her when coaching. I love the way she prays before and after the sessions, and I feel the Spirit’s presence throughout the sessions. She helped me to stay focused on my goals and made me accountable for the things that I said that I wanted to do. I would highly recommend her services.”
–Tracey Moore (Norfolk, Virginia)
