Mary, as a Soul Coach and soon-to-be certified Strategic Intervention Life Coach, provides the ultimate in safe space for people to examine their lives and learn how to “rewrite” their personal stories and develop strategies to empower them to live the life they desire.
Her journey to coaching, feng shui & Reiki from her first brief career 25 years ago as a practising lawyer (B.A., LLB, Dalhousie University) has been an unfolding of her essence, a road to her authentic self. She has gradually let go of preconditioned beliefs about who she thought she was “supposed” to be, opening her to her true life’s work.
Her varied life experiences, including 14 years as a fine-art and commercial photographer, and more recently being a hobby farmer of lavender, as well as being a lifelong student of human nature, have brought depth and perspective to her coaching work with others. Inspired by works in mind-body healing, she understands how our thoughts affect our emotions and our emotions affect our physical well-being.
Mary’s life changed dramatically for the better through discovering her relationship with nature, with Source energy or Spirit, and through developing her intuition, partly with the help of shamanic journeying. As a result she pursued studies that would enable her to help others searching for a sense of peace, connection and inner knowing.

Her blog site, “Soulful Ground”, explores her connection to Spirit, and to the land she and Edward call home, along with informative pieces based in the coaching work that she does. The name itself, Soulful Ground, reflects the underpinnings of Mary’s work: that our connection with a spiritual Source, to the energies and guides and metaphysical essences that are really the truth of who we are as spiritual beings, can be accessed safely from a place of groundedness, in part through a relationship with nature, as well as through an understanding of the relationship between our Souls and the practical “reality” of our physical form.
Her goal is to help her clients find insight, transformation and healing by offering practical tools, strategies and experiential processes well-grounded in psychology, with the additional guidance of Spirit or Source energy where appropriate, whether that shows up as moments of serendipity or synchronicity, whether it appears through spirit guides of some kind in a journey or meditation, through the life force energy of Reiki, or even through a spread of oracle cards or other divination tools. All is offered in a safe and calming environment where the sacredness of your own personal journey is honoured.

“Your calm and soothing nature and the positive energy you give off definitely complemented the program and enhanced my experience. Your choice of words, whether it be your thought provoking and descriptive stories or your inspirational advice, really captured the true meaning behind soul coaching.
You provided us with the genuine heartfelt encouragement and support we needed to pursue this journey. Not to mention your home was peaceful, safe and nurturing; the perfect environment for those experiencing any sort of emotion, vulnerability, or fear.” ~ Danielle A., Bridgewater, NS, in an email to Mary after the winter 2012 Soul Coaching® class.
