Partnering in your Potential
Marianna Henry, ACC, is a Success Coach offering virtual, strengths-based ADHD, Academic, and Career support to teens and adults.
Hi! A little bit about me: My pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a bilingual first-generation American. My family emigrated from Warsaw, Poland and settled in Grand Rapids, Michigan (I was a Szczepkowski until I got married)! I have a bachelor's in Public Relations and earned a master's in Social Entrepreneurship, studying sociology and nonprofit leadership. I moved to Utah in 2008 for my partner's career opportunity, and I have worked in higher education for over 13 years. I founded MHSC in 2020.
My work in higher ed introduced me to the world of coaching. Over the last few years, I have completed 800+ hours of coaching in higher ed and my private practice. Much of my fulfillment has come from helping clients and students discover and develop their strengths, explore and affirm their career paths, and make progress in their academic and personal journeys.
I have a particular interest in partnering with ADHD clients. My two youngest children and my partner were diagnosed in the last few years, and many of my university students have ADHD. As a result, I am trained and well-versed in neurodiversity, as well as executive function challenges and strategies. I am understanding, compassionate, and comfortable in this space - no masking needed in our sessions.
In my personal time, I enjoy singing, planning events, reading, Halloween, yoga, making skincare products, home improvement, Disneyland, Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and traveling in the U.S. and abroad with my family. We also have a big red dog and sassy fluffy cat!

I follow a holistic and strengths-based coaching paradigm. As a credentialed member of the International Coaching Federation, I also follow the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies. It's important for me to create an environment of belonging, authenticity, open-mindedness, accessibility, and inclusion.
Coaching is a collaborative effort, a partnership which requires non-judgment, trust, communication, and empathy. We are all different flavors of human! Every background, character, strength, and story is different – there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Therefore, I like to prep for each session with the mantra, "Stay curious a little longer." I love helping clients, students, teams, and organizations implement a strengths-based mindset and culture.
In an effort to support the community, 5% of profits go to fund donations for the Food & Care Coalition in Provo, Utah (a nonprofit that holds a special place in my heart).
