Hey there!

i'm Mary Allison 

I'm on a mission to re-write the rules of self-care because I know that the only way that anyone gets to show up as the best version of themselves is when they learn to take the very best care of themselves. The old way of doing things - putting everyone's needs ahead of your own, running yourself ragged, and dancing on the edge of burnout just isn't working anymore. 

As a licensed mental health therapist, certified clinical trauma specialist, and coach, I witness the impact of this old paradigm every single day. In fact, my journey to coaching began with my own personal experience of intense, debilitating personal and professional burnout. My breakthrough happened when I hired my first coach. For the first time in a long time, I felt seen and heard and validated. Through my coaching experience, I was able to heal decades old trauma finally step fully into my power.  Now, it's my privilege to combine my personal and professional expertise to help my clients go from drained and depleted to energized and inspired.

"Mary Allison has a professional demeanor while being devoted to her clients and helping them help themselves. her content is practical and easy to implement." 

I'm obsessed with helping my clients learn how to take the best care of themselves so that they show up every single day as the best version of themselves. Ultimately? I want to live in a world where no one lets their dreams die at the hands of doubt or insecurity. I want to live in a world where we all emphatically reject the notion that we should be anyone other than exactly who we are. 

You deserve a life that lights you up. 

You know you should be taking better care of yourself, but you have no idea how. 

That's where I come in. I'm on a mission to help people learn how to take care of themselves and get out of their own way so they can create a life that lights them up. Unapologetically. 

In addition to my clinical work and coaching practice, I'm also the author of the five-star rated guided journal, "Align With Joy: A 30-Day Guided Joy Journal Designed to Help You Cultivate a Life Filled With Joy and Gratitude" and a contributing author to the best-selling personal development book, "Mastering Your Inner Game: Stories of Overcoming Mountains with Mindset." Both books are available on Amazon.

about me

I have a (not-so-secret) desire to live in a real-life musical even though I can't carry a tune.

When I spoke at Show Up! Live in Portland, I was so excited about my intro music that I actually sang on stage into my microphone. 

My absolute favorite hobby in the whole entire world is flying trapeze.
