Certified Life Coach, MA, BSM
MY NAME: is Amy Marconi and I am THRILLED to be working with Matt towards impacting, influencing, and challenging the youth of our community to overcome obstacles, discover their unique strengths, and champion them as they become the very best version of themselves.
MY MISSION: is to equip youth in our community with the tools, strategies and coping skills that they need to navigate the sometimes turbulent waters of life. My goal will be to assist them in discovering their unique set of assets, qualities and strengths and to motivate them to utilize these strengths in achieving the goals that they have set out for themselves. I believe in their ability to succeed. I believe in their unique giftings that make them who they are! I believe that they can do hard things. It is my goal and mission for them to believe it too!
MY MOTIVATION: comes from my passion to see youth be all that they’ve been created to be! I long for them to look in the mirror and see what the world sees and see their potential instead of believing the sometimes-destructive self-talk that they might be allowing to occupy space in their thoughts. I love empowering youth to be aware of negative self-chatter and teaching them to replace this with self-affirming messages and beliefs about who they are.
MY MENTALITY: as a certified Life Coach from the world-wide recognized Certified Coaches Federation as well as a Social Worker with over 20 years active experience in our Niagara community, I have witnessed first-hand countless times the miraculous change that occurs in someone when they have someone who believes in them, challenges them, inspires them and helps them re-frame the story they’re telling themselves. It is my believe that youth are capable of amazing things and far too often allow fear, anxiety, other people’s opinions and a lack of belief in themselves keep them from accomplishing those dreams and goals that are bursting within them. They were made for GREAT things and with a little guidance, support, practical skills and tools, I believe their potential is limitless. Let’s set those goals, dream those dreams and crush that fear!
I have been actively practicing social work with men, women, and children in our community for over 20 years in a variety of capacities. My work has included child and youth work, mental health and addiction work, personal counselling with families and children, domestic violence work, and most recently I worked with individuals experiencing the highest level of poverty while trying to sustain housing. My husband Brett and I live here in the Niagara community with our family and together we serve and volunteer in our community in a variety of ways. We believe in family, we believe in this community and we believe we that we are each other’s neighbors and need to take care of one another. This is the way we try to live and parent. Helping, inspiring and impacting others to be their best version of themselves has been the highlight of my life. I would be honored to work with your child.
