Discover how “Tapestry of Love” can guide you to heal your heart, mind & body & grow into the person you want to be, by directing your energy & resources

Marie Demres

Why do I coach?

I have always felt a desire to give to others. I love watching someone opening presents and their face as they enjoy what they have received. I am a mom to 3 grown sons who I love to the moon and back. My heart holds them close, and I treasure every interaction with them. I love to think about them and talk to them and listen to the wisdom they have and give so freely. I taught academics to Special Education students to see the AH-Hah moment when a student “got it.”  That made my day! I also taught to help some students work thru resistance and disabilities to get to the Ah-Hah moment.

You Are Unique

My approach to each person is to see you as the multi-faceted person you are. You are unique and complex; an integrated beautiful person who has always made choices with good intentions.

Child with building blocks

What is my passion?

Have you ever been in a room when someone starts interacting with a child who is struggling and unhappy? Have you noticed the atmosphere change when he/she presents an activity, song, dance, touch, an acceptance of the struggle they are experiencing, and the child stops what they are doing and notices and then moves toward that person? I am that person. That is the gift God gave me.  I’m here to help children and families. Children in trauma are where I feel I can be most helpful. I am currently writing a series of books about childhood trauma (see quote below).

“As Jakie’s home environment starts to become uncomfortable, Jakie starts to feel pain in his heart and abdomen. He is having difficulty coping and his body seems to disappear or become less significant. This signals his “fight or flight” response in the sympathetic nervous system. Stress starts to build, his mouth is dry, heartbeat accelerates, pupils dilate, lung airways dilate, stomach activity is inhibited, the stomach converts glycogen to glucose, intestines are inhibited, adrenaline and noradrenaline are produced, and the bladder contraction is inhibited. He has nowhere to run and can’t understand how to feel anger, so he begins to cry and shrivel or hide into his own perception of himself.”

About My Practice


Tug to your heart?  That’s YOU in there asking for guidance, permission, love, compassion, a listener to heart and soul, someone with intuition to “know” what you’re saying, what you fear, to help you cope, understand how much you love and hate, who can give guidance and encouragement as you set up passions and hopes for your future. You may need me to offer a thread to lead you into your life’s purpose and make that beautiful Tapestry of Love that you’ve always wanted.

How do I guide a person to truth and coherence?

My coaching involves the integration of neuroscience, biology, nutrition, yoga/movement, and emotional and spiritual (God directed) guidance.

How Do I Coach Children?

I am intuitive, some say I am an empath – I use that gift with skills I have learned thru a lifetime of teaching and working with children, babies, and toddlers and their parents to coach children. I can “play guide” with children to help them perceive the positive, to communicate their needs, and to enjoy their environment. I can open doors to help parents understand their child’s world.

Do I coach adults?

“Yes”. I truly love people and want the best for each person. I want you to find your passion and reach for it, to know that there are going to be struggles and obstacles in your way and to use them to become stronger and more resilient.  You are HERE for a reason.  That reason is your purpose!  Your obstacles are unique to you and help to guide and form your character.

Do I work with adults separate from children?

I will work with adults and help you find your passion and your strengths, letting you walk me through your smooth or tangled mind, body, soul tapestry and guide you through the process of entanglement toward fluidity, coherence and truth.

Kim L.
Coaching Client
“I always feel safe with Marie. She is reassuring and holds an open door for me to go through and explore my feelings and fears. It's as if she is holding my hand through-out the brainspotting session. It felt like Marie was right there with me (online session) as I went through my trauma. I can speak with my heart and it's received. She is so in-touch and it fills me with reverence and awe!"
Coaching Client
"Marie is a wonderful person. I felt able to open up to her. She was there for me and my family at any time, even when we didn’t have a scheduled session. She really helped my family and I get back on our feet. I felt like she truly cared for all of us, and in turn made me feel comfortable to talk about anything. Words can’t describe how much she meant and means to our family. I know she will always be there for us. I appreciate her so much."
Coaching Client
"Marie has shown to have a strong ability to apply the components of the Brainspotting (BSP) theory within her practice. She has a good understanding of the brainspotting concepts and techniques. She has already begun to make BSP her own. She is attentive and willing to take feedback."

Her background in education, and her extensive experience with young people, as well as her training and experience as a yoga instructor have prepared her well to be helping others in so many ways. The rigorous Whole Life Healing Coaching course has added the knowledge and wisdom she will need as a life coach. Future clients will be lucky to have you in their life.”
Julie Kisil
Coaching Client
“My time in coaching with Marie has been a period of finding my calm and peaceful side. I feel comfortable talking with her and know that what I say in session is confidential and that I am in a safe space. After a few months of coaching, my blood pressure has gone down, without any medication, and I feel calmer and more able to cope with the trauma I've been dealing with for years. I would recommend Marie to anyone going through a difficult period in their lives."
Coaching Client
“Brainspotting with Marie let's me go into uncharted territory in a safe and supported way. On occasion, during processing, I feel like I've 'shot the rapids.' Very exciting!"
Coaching Client
“Marie is, first and foremost, a believer and child of God. She is a loving and supportive mother and wife, a devoted friend, a lifelong learner, a teacher of academics, yoga, religion and life. She’s an avid reader, an adventurer, a lover of children, an admirer of art, lover of nature and fitness and travel.

She is best known for her kindness, as a helper, a giver and a good listener. She is quirky, spontaneous, and fun. Her laughter is contagious. She is genuine and always accepting of others.

She is best known for her open and accepting mind, her ability to listen, to open her heart, to give to those in need, to be positive, has an energetic spirit and thirst for knowledge, a desire to challenge herself and continuously grow, she is determined to find answers and to do good."
