Maryalice Coleman is the creator of the Change Your Aim Change Your Life workshop. An inner life coach, mentor, and workshop leader, her passion, compassion, and effectiveness in supporting women around the world to heal their lives and fulfill their dreams, springs from her own profound recovery from the pain of childhood sexual abuse and the effects of living by default. From that she has created a mantra: Live on purpose, not by default.In addition to her university degree in applied psychology, Maryalice has an extensive background in the literature and processes that promote personal development. She also stays current with leading-edge research into neuro-plasticity and the brain’s capacity to outgrow limiting patterns that developed in response to trauma.Through formative experiences, a lifelong pursuit of personal growth and development, and twenty years of facilitating support groups, mentoring, and coaching, she has created a process of compassionate, empathetic, and focused coaching. Her in-depth workshop, known as the Living Room Effect, helps educate and inspire women from the inside out, leading to dynamic, transformational personal growth and development.Maryalice currently lives in Portland, Oregon, where she finds delight in painting, reading, decorating, designing, and engaging in continued self-growth. She enjoys spending time with her children, their spouses, and her grandchildren whenever possible, affirming that her friends and family are her utmost blessings.
