I'm Life Coach MaryAddison Yates

And I’m all about building more positive, empowered communities one woman at a time

Are You Going Through the Motions?

I did what I thought every “good girl” does. I got married, had boy-girl twins, and accepted the roles of employee, wife, and mother. 

And maybe you can relate…but I wasn’t feeling connected with myself, my husband, or my kids. 

I drowned out my burning desire for more with alcohol, TV, the kid’s activities, and housework. I was just going through the motions: wake up, go to work, collect paycheck, pay bills, drink myself to sleep—on repeat.

Until I couldn’t take it anymore.

So I started therapy, got sober, and really began my journey to empowerment. I worked my ass off in recovery from alcohol, perfectionism, and people-pleasing. 

I started to discover who I truly was and became transformed from the inside out. 

Along my journey, I developed a conscious connection with my Higher Power and learned how to feel my feelings, be kind to myself, recognize my boundaries, give myself compassion, not take myself so damn seriously, and how to truly love and care for myself.

One near-death experience, a pandemic, and quitting my dental assistant career later…

I was scared shitless. 

What was I going to do with my life? Did I have a deeper purpose?

After struggling through my doubts, I hired my own life coach and finally discovered what feels like my calling: helping women on their journeys to empowerment. 

If you ever feel numb, scared shitless, or wonder “what the hell am I doing with my life?!” like I did, I got you, mama. 

Is empowerment coaching right for you?

You Deserve a Life That's Fulfilling and Joyful

But as much as I’d like to tell you it’s rainbows and sunshine, the journey to empowerment truly requires you to work your ass off. 

You’ll have to leave your comfort zone, face your fears, and battle your demons, but all you need to start is to be willing to try—you’ll never be ready.

That’s why I became an ICF-certified life coach through the internationally ICF-accredited life coach training program at Inner Glow Circle and started my coaching business, Journey2Empowerment—because I don’t want you to have to take that journey alone.

Who is MaryAddison?

I Can't Live Without...
The one thing I can’t live without is knowing my Creator loves me, no matter what. And chocolate, I definitely need chocolate.
I Spend My Days...
I start my days with an hour of “me time.” I ask my Creator to help me take care of myself so I can use my gifts and be of maximum service to others. I spend my days relying on my Google calendar to keep me in line and responding to my “self-care” reminder alerts so I can juggle my personal, professional, and family life.
I Constantly...
I constantly talk out loud to myself in hopes it will help me remember what I was just about to do. You know, like when you walk into a room and completely forget the reason for going in there in the first place?!
The Surprising Truth Is...
One truth that people don’t believe is that I’m extremely introverted and feel awkward in social situations most of the time.

Count Me In

Count Me Out

It's SELF love, not THEIR love.

In a world that’s fed you shame, belittlement, and people-pleasing since day one, you need someone to help you understand it doesn’t have to be that way anymore—and show you the way out.

That’s why I’m honored to have been chosen as a top Self-Love Coach by the coachfoundation.com.

Because, when you’re my client, everything we do together—from the safe space we hold to validate and normalize struggles and remove shame, to the practical daily habits I’ll support you in—it all leads to you having more inner peace, more contentment, and more self-love. 

I’m living proof that self-love cures. 

And I’m proud to stand here today, knowing I can help you put your deepest, darkest moments behind you, too. 

Let's Find What You've Been Missing

We all yearn for and need connection and encouragement to lead a fulfilling, meaningful life—and I mean actually fulfilling, not the stuff you see or post on social media—the real deal.

You can create a life you love, it doesn’t have to be complicated, and you don’t have to do it alone!
