Before Coronavirus COVID-19 impacted the world, encouraging many of us to look at ourselves, our loved ones, health, and work in a whole new light, little did I know my choice to re-launch my business as “Pivotal Impact” would hold even greater meaning in the months to come. 


I selected Pivotal Impact to represent a new direction—specifically, a choice to take a step—maybe even a big step—toward a healthier, more meaningful life, no matter what’s happened in the past. 

   “If you want to change your life, you can.
It's a choice we have the power to make each day."

Are you living the life you really want?
Do you have the health, relationships, and 
meaningful life

you want to have? 
What's stopping you?


It's not the one who left you.

It's not the boss who betrayed you, or the one who 'took' your job. 

It's not even the one who died. 

Career transition, loss, death, betrayal, the end of a relationship,

a difficult memory that won't quit, and other stressors make it difficult to

control what we think and feel. These experiences often invade our peace of mind,

and can leave us questioning who we are

and if we really matter.

How we think affects the way we feel. So if we want to feel differently,

we've got to change the thoughts that limit our potential.

Are you ready to claim the life you really want?

Are you ready to enjoy the relationships you want to have? 

Are you ready to be the person you really want to be? 

Whether you choose a private consultation, workshop, or retreat,

Pivotal Impact Programs will help clarify your direction

and lead you where you want to go!

Father and Son
What it's Like to Work with Mary

“Anyone who works with Mary Scott can’t go wrong. I was depressed, angry, drinking a lot, overwhelmed with my emotions, and on the verge of losing my job.


Mary used various things to help me overcome my depression and anger. She is incredible: kind, considerate, patient, and willing to help her clients face their personal demons. I was able to focus on my goals and gain further control over my limitations. I gained the confidence to complete my bachelors, enroll in a Masters, and move across the country to start a new life in an area more suited to my personality. Mary may not tell you what you want to hear, but she will help you find the next step.


If you’re hurting or just tired of this mad, crazy world, she can help you find the light at the end of the tunnel.”

“Working one-on-one with Mary, I was able to literally shift my way of being in the world—from living in a state of anxiety where I spent too much time worrying about what others think to living in the moment. She helped me recognize and move beyond my limiting belief and become more of the person I want to be. I now define myself on my own terms rather than being defined by others. Thank you Mary!"


“I would recommend anyone to seek Mary Scott for guidance in their life. She is a jewel to work with, and helped rid myself of old beliefs using emotional release techniques and other tools. Her guided visualizations helped me through my grief and other personal issues I was struggling with for years.”


“At a retreat, my wife and I felt lucky enough to have Mary assigned to us. We immediately warmed to her open style. Each daily session (with “homework”) proved tough, tender and busy. Mary’s humor and insight got us over “walls” we had created in our marriage, and to once again be more loving despite my PTSD and my wife’s grief from losing a daughter.”
