Marisa Schuler

Coach, Mediator, Consultant


Marisa Schuler HeadshotMarisa Schuler is a coach, mediator and consultant serving clients in the Baltimore area and beyond. I have a variety of skills and experiences to help people who are ready to make dramatic changes to improve their lives and businesses.

I currently work as a certified mediator at Baltimore Community Mediation Center, serving prisoners as they prepare to re-enter their communities. I also co-facilitate youth-police dialogue circles in Baltimore City Public Schools, where I aid in the sharing of new perspectives. Previously, I led the effort to solve an employee engagement problem at a Fortune 100 company for the Head of Digital and his Chief-of-Staff, during which I learned the importance of high impact, purpose-driven work.

I’m in the process of completing my certification with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) through the Co-Active Training Institute while pursuing an M.S. in Negotiations and Conflict Management at the University of Baltimore. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Leadership & Public Policy from the University of Virginia in 2014, and since graduating have lived in Washington D.C., New York City and Philadelphia.

I am passionate about catalyzing individuals, families, and businesses to move past ‘roadblocks’ to fully align with what’s most important to them and achieve their utmost potential.


Performance Coaching

My coaching service is made for those looking to design and actualize a life they REALLY want, performing at their highest potential. Often in life, we get “stuck” awaiting the day we’ll achieve all our hopes and dreams. We get caught up in routine, thinking: “I’ll get there one day.” We’re scared to take a leap, or even be honest with ourselves about what we most want. These habits are compelling – but they’re holding you back.

In response, I offer a powerful, highly customized coaching service that will help you uncover your deepest desires and build the life of your dreams. Contact me for a full information packet (with pricing), or to schedule your complimentary 30-minute sample session to see if coaching is right for you.

Conflict Management & Negotiations Counseling

While coaching is 100% focused on you and your agenda, counseling entails providing education and giving advice. As a conflict management student-practitioner, I am uniquely qualified to counsel you in negotiations and conflict management of any kind. I have extensive experience helping individuals navigate workplace conflict (with supervisors, coworkers, direct reports) and negotiations (interviews, raises, role expansions), as well as interpersonal conflict with family and friends. Counseling may be incorporated into our coaching, mediation or consulting agreement, or you may request it as a standalone service.


Trained in the Inclusive Mediation Model, I provide mediation services to groups of two or more individuals who want support in having difficult conversations. To do this, I guide participants through a problem-solving process that was created to empower individuals while ensuring that all needs are met. Many find that inclusive mediation transforms relationships – whether at work, school or in the home. Mediation can be used as either a preventative or healing process. Additional conflict coaching available upon request.

Vision + Alignment Consulting

This consulting service is built for organizations that want to reap the benefits of a highly motivated, strategically-aligned workplace. Businesses of all sizes and types are wasting time and money by having their employees work on many different goals and directives. To cope, they either turn a blind eye to the chaos, generating few meaningful results, or implement a command-and-control approach, creating a suffocating atmosphere.

My service is designed to stop these patterns and get your organization back on track. To do this, I take a three-step approach:

  1. Assess your organization to identify the root cause of the problem
  2. Conduct a vision workshop with your leadership team to align on a clear long-term vision and near-term objectives
  3. Implement the time-tested objectives and key results (OKR) model in your organization to create alignment and generate real results

Executive coaching services available upon request.
