“Always looking out for my best interests”

“Thank you for being my mentor coach. Throughout my career, I have had many different mentors – none were as effective as you were.

“Each coaching session with you was an eye opener for me – a BIG AHA! You brought moments of clarity on how to improve my coaching skills and self discovery into my own style of coaching. Your direct approach coupled with a gentle spirit made me look forward to the next session where you would champion me to the next level of coaching.

“I always felt enormous progress from session to session. I am truly fortunate to have been assigned you as my mentor coach. I think of you as my “angel” coach always looking out for my best interests and prodding me to reach for the stars. From the bottom of my heart, I am deeply indebted to you as you have shaped me into the coach I am today.”

Katie Weiser, CPC, ACC

“A trusted expert”

“I’ve had the professional and personal privilege of knowing and working with Stephanie for over 2 years now. When I went through my coach training school via iPEC, her wealth of coaching knowledge, dedication to the field, and sincere desire for me to succeed was such an important piece of my training. But more importantly, Stephanie’s confidence, smarts and compassion enabled me to trust in my self more, both in coaching and in my day-to-day life.

“After a year of running my own successful coaching practice, I wanted to change gears into a new niche that had a lot of personal importance to to me: working with plus-sized women around body image and self-love. As much as the idea excited me, I wasn’t quite clear on how to make the transition in an empowering way and I still had my own beliefs to sort out first.

“I worked with Stephanie privately and each time our call ended, my body, mind and spirit were filled with immense joy and confidence that I had exactly (and way more!) of what it takes to be a stellar coach in this area AND be more kind to myself along the way. Stephanie’s not only an excellent coach, she’s a community builder and through her passion for helping individuals and coaches alike, I feel that a trusted expert and valued peer is on my side.”

“Nothing short of inspirational”

“In less than 30 minutes, you coached me through a barrier that had been in my field of view for as long as I can remember…that’s a pretty darned amazing feat.

“Even within my emotional turmoil, I could see such high a standard of coaching dedication and integrity in your work that it was nothing short of inspirational…I kid you not.”

“I feel so empowered…”

“I always wanted to accomplish certain things at various stages in my life but something was always holding me back. Working with Stephanie helped me to define what that something was and turn it completely around. What I had perceived my entire life as my greatest weakness became my greatest strength. I haven’t looked back since.

“Stephanie is an incredibly insightful coach. I feel so empowered and ready to move into the next chapter of my life. Thank you Stephanie.”

“A top notch coach and facilitator”

“I have had the opportunity to work with Stephanie Marisca in three different aspects of a coaching experience. I was first introduced to her as my coaching SIG facilitator. She immediately impressed me with her command of coaching skills but even more appealing was how easy it was to connect to her.

“When I heard about a program she was running called Powerful Presentations, I signed on immediately. That was hands down the best investment I have made since becoming a coach. Not only did I learn an invaluable amount of information that I will always be able to use but once again Stephanie proved to be a top notch coach and facilitator. Consistently she led the group with great energy and professionalism.

“What I love most about Stephanie is her great ability to make all her participants feel heard. She genuinely has every group member’s best interest at heart. Additionally, I have worked with Stephanie privately and frequently have attended the monthly Coaches Cafe she runs. In every venue I have worked with her, she shows up 100%. I hope I am fortunate enough to have more opportunities work with her!”

Holly Boxenhorn MSW, CSW, CPC, ELI-MP

“Genuine interest and support”

“The Coaches Cafe has prompted me to think differently about how I’ve been building my practice. Instead of repeating the same old patterns, Stephanie’s enthusiasm and energy has inspired me to reach beyond my usual ways of doing business. Her genuine interest and support for me and my success as coach is what the Cafe is all about.”

Kathy Black, CEC

“A wonderful supporting resource”

“The Mentor Calls that Stephanie has provided through the Coaches Café have been a wonderful supporting resource as I grow my coaching practice. The calls provide me with personal inspiration for increasing my coaching and business effectiveness, all in a supportive coaching community environment.

“I’ve also found the Café topics that Stephanie has brought forth to be a great mix, ranging from informative and educational to highly fun and creative. Whether the “menu” is Stephanie sharing her coaching expertise and guidance, or one of the invited expert guest speakers, I try to make this one call I don’t miss.”

“A brilliant resource for coaches.”

“Coaches Café is a brilliant resource for coaches. The Ask the Mentor Free Monthly Calls are filled with valuable topics and knowledgeable people from the coaching field.

“I truly benefit from these talks. I was so inspired after a niche development call that I took action to get the help I needed from the resources that were provided. I am now working on marketing and content for my website. It was just the motivation and inspiration I needed to get myself into action!

“Coaches Café with Stephanie Marisca is just terrific! Stephanie freely shares her great knowledge, enthusiasm and love of her work to help coaches sort through their priorities, move to a place of confidence, take inspired action and create success with their coaching.”

Cheryl Roshak, CPC

“Stephanie is worth her weight in Gold”

“I was trained by Stephanie Marisca and have had the privilege to access her mentoring through the Coaches Café. Stephanie cares deeply about Coaching and professionalism. I knew that if I attended the Coaches Café I would have access to both of these qualities, which would enhance the facets of my brilliance as a Coach. The mentor calls have allowed my brilliance to shine through because I was able to access:

  • Stephanie’s wealth of knowledge and guidance
  • Professionally well run meeting
  • Access to other Coaches through Facebook
  • Recorded sessions to access at any time
  • A SAFE place to take risks
  • A Fun learning environment

“I would encourage all Coaches to access the Café whether they are new to Coaching or veterans. Talk about brilliance…Stephanie is worth her weight in Gold …even at today’s Gold standard.”

“Supported me in moving forward.”

“Our recent coaching session was a great reminder of how much coaches benefit from being coached themselves. Your coaching was so helpful in enabling me to gain clarity in a challenging situation.

“I have followed up by having several conversations with my colleague and, while not easy, it’s been a relief to know I am doing what I need to do to be in integrity with myself and helpful to a friend and colleague as he grows.

“In the process, of course, I am learning tons about myself and the places I might make assumptions without consciously challenging myself. Thank you again for the great questions and clarity that have supported me in moving forward.”

Ann V. Deaton, PhD, PCC,
