Helping You Live Your Best Life

About Mary Garrett

I am a Licensed Social Worker with more than 25 years of experience working in non-profits, education, and government. Most of my career has been focused on impacting the ways we as individuals and as systems support the well-being of children, families, and our communities. Creating meaningful change requires leaders who can “lead from any chair.”

Identifying and developing leaders–often those not formally recognized as such–is what brought me into leadership and developmental coaching. I have coached recognized leaders in non-profits, government, and faith-based organizations, youth and young adults, and parents to focus their intentions and realize their goals.

About My Coaching Philosophy

My coaching draws on Presence-Based Coaching methodology, leadership theory, youth and adult development theories, trauma-informed care, mindfulness, somatic practices, and neurobiology.

I am a Certified Presence-Based Coach and an Associate of the Coach Approach Partners, LLC. I am also an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) from the International Coaching Federation and a member of the International Coaching Foundation and the National Association of Social Workers.

Virtual and Live Trainings and Workshops

I am a certified trainer in The Coach Approach for Adaptive Leadership, Youth Mental Health First Aid, and Lakeside Global’s Trauma Training series.

More About Mary Garrett

Throughout my life, I have dedicated myself to impacting my communities as a volunteer.  I currently serve School Board Director of the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District and support refugees through a consortium of faith communities including my church home, St. David’s Episcopal Church in Wayne, PA. I have been involved in racial equity and justice work since my 20s. Recently I have been a member of two cohorts:  SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) and AWARE (Allied Whites Against Racism for Equity).   

Being outdoors and maintaining a regular meditation, yoga, and pilates practice are central to my ability to remain present, centered, and joyful. My true loves are my husband, son, dog, and my treasured extended family and friends who live throughout the United States.
