Marilena Minucci, MS, CHHC

Marilena specializes in helping Women who are feeling physically, emotionally or spiritually stuck get moving again and get reconnected to themselves. This focus on her work was inspired by her own personal transformation and re-balance of health, relationships and career. A successful and lasting weight loss of over 50 pounds and recovery from PCOS led her to create an Integrative Energy & Emotional Release approach she now shares with clients and practitioners alike. Other specialty areas include helping women naturally and nutritionally navigate emotional eating, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), metabolic syndrome, adrenal fatigue and midlife hormonal imbalances.

With over 20 years of life & wellness coaching/education experience and training in current nutritional theories, personal growth & development, and energy psychology, Marilena challenges old patterns and beliefs that so that her clients can successfully end cycles of self-sabotage, identify clear, meaningful goals, and design simple strategies to move ahead and create the richer, more fulfilling, healthy and balanced lives they desire.

As creator of the Quantum Coaching Method™, Marilena also offers health coaches and other wellness professionals a dynamic way to work at an advanced level with their clients while at the same time enhance their own personal growth. The program focuses on several key relationship areas including Energetic Weight Release, De-junking, Soul Gardening and Life Economics.

Marilena holds degrees in psychology and counseling from New York University and the State University of New York. She also graduated from and is a mentor and instructor for the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York City. She is certified by the American Association of Drug-less Practitioners and a member of the International Association of Coaching. Marilena is also certified as a 4 Gateways Coach.

In addition to her formal graduate work in Mental Health Counseling, Marilena has also completed advanced studies with the Debbie Ford Integrative Coaching Institute; Marc David, Nutritional Psychologist; Tom Daly, PhD in 4 Gateways Coaching and with the Albert Ellis Institute in NYC. She also studied with EFT’s Gary Craig and Carol Look and continues to integrate energy work, including Reiki into her practice.

Marilena currently lives in New York and travels extensively as part the Quantum lifestyle she embraces.

“4 Gateways Coaching has fundamentally changed the way I work, do business and live. This is not just another coaching method. It is a very powerful tool offering a framework for helping clients very quickly make connections and shift behaviors in areas in which they have been stuck for years.

As a practitioner, these techniques allow me to integrate wisdom, insight, and the best of what coaching can offer in a flexible and effective way. I now coach and teach on a whole new level. Just the training experience alone moved me ahead light years in my own personal work, which in my view, is an essential factor in being the best coach possible.”
