One of the things I most appreciate about Marcia is that she is a great advocate of personal and professional balance and the need to optimize her satisfaction at work and at home. Work-life balance is a term that is often spoken, and particularly something that I found impossible to achieve, since, since when I started my corporate life, I have always dedicated more of my time to work than to myself, my family or friends. Marcia helped me realize how important it is to spend quality time in both areas of my life as well as take time to focus on me so I can be at my best in my personal life.

I love how Marcia combines her extensive knowledge and her incredible sensitivity to help us live our lives healthier. It is part of science, part of the therapy, educational part with a lot of empathy and kindness, no matter the subject matter - Marcia can offer good advice, possible goals and wonderful encouragement. I've been involved with Marcia since 2015 and changed my life in many ways.
Caren C. - Nova York
I was pleasantly surprised by the results of psychotherapy online; Marcia Smith was very helpful and effective in the online format. She was great at listening and providing resources that enabled me to help me reach my long-term goals. I would highly recommend her.
Kelly S. NYC
My coaching with Marcia is extremely valuable for many reasons. The advice and opinions it offers are articulated or reinforced because I listen internally about how I need to change my behavior so that I can change my role in the company. Marcia has the ability to understand not only what will succeed in business in general, but what will help you in the culture in which you are now. It is important to hear a voice that comes without any political connotations that I can trust. It provides a "white screen" in which we can exchange ideas with full openness. Marcia has shown experience of content, intellectual and emotional intelligence, willingness to connect ideas, honesty in evaluation and with an ego-free agenda.
Richard M. CFO NYC
In addition to being extremely empathetic and knowledgeable, Marcia Smith cares about me. Her genuine desire to help me get better is truly genuine and she does all she can to get me there. The thought that she is on the other side of the screen listening to, guiding and supporting me, calms me, and gives me great strength to go forward. I was amazed how effective and easy it was to do therapy.

Marcia, you made me do yoga again (and this, combined with your encouragement, led me to lose the extra weight I gained through emotional stress, you led me to move my body and to participate in a gym, you made me develop a sustainable and healthy diet that I will not give up when I stop working with you, you taught me so many things about food and health psychology! Thank you, thank you!

I feel very lucky and honored to have worked with Márcia as my coach, she has always provided me with a broad vision and examples of how to implement change, keeping myself committed to my progress and discussing it in each session. I could clearly see improvements in my performance and in the work of my team members. It helped me believe in my own ability to lead and gave me a greater positive perception of my leadership, which led me to new opportunities that I never thought possible.
Willian Z. CFO
Listens and offers real effective help. Marcia is not superficial, she knows when to dig and when to move on.
Peter Z. Washington DC
Dr. Tonioli – Smith has been a wonderful help at giving me a deeper understanding about me and those close to me. She is really understanding, and her experience is clear when it comes to helping with relationships. I gained a lot from his insights in a short time. I recommend working with her if you want to uncover things and improve the areas that cause you difficulty.
Caroline R. Boston, MA
Time is everything! My coaching experience with Marcia Tonioli Smith came at the right time in my career. At the beginning of the process, we set the goals together and kept them in mind to remember them whenever a new problem appeared. Marcia timed her coaching time perfectly to successfully complete all the goals. It has provided me tools that I keep as a treasure trove of actions that will drive my career for a long time ahead. Thank you Marcia.
Marc B. President – NYC
Marcia Smith is very patient and has suggested different exercises that helped me through a variety of situations. I'm happy that this therapy online is available for people like me who don't have the time to meet in person. Thank you.
TJ Atlanta, GA
Marcia has been unique in my journey to the acceptance of my body. She helped me end my endless cycle of diet and deprivation by training me to overcome my fear of carbohydrates and food in general. Their program has proven me that I can lose weight by eating all foods in moderation and without getting hungry. Most importantly, it has helped me feel good inside and out and embrace where I am now and believe that I can succeed in the future.
KATHY N. NYC
Marcia has helped me through the hardest year of my adult life. She listened and guided me through it all with helpful tools, valuable support and an open heart. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Thomas K. New York, NY
Marcia has been amazing!! She has been right by my side through my difficult time. I trust what she is telling me and I feel like she speaks my language. She is so great at helping me see and understand how and why I'm feeling this way. I recommend her.
Christine N. Greenwich, CT
Initially, I did not understand the need for an executive coach. But it's like the old saying, "You do not know what you do not know." Márcia gave me a different point of view. With her help, I was able to recognize where I could improve as a professional and as a person. I found balance as a professional leader and in my personal and family life. During the time she was my coaching, I had to make very difficult decisions in my career and in relation to my family. With the support and tools she provided me, this transition has become the easiest transition I've ever had in my career. My only regret is that I did not find Márcia at the beginning of my career.
Edward T. CEO Wall St – NYC
Marcia Smith is a wonderful, understanding human being. In the short time, I have been working with her and she has already shown me so many new ways to help address my anxiety and depression, which have improved incredibly since I started with her. I highly recommend her.
Working with Marcia Smith for the past four years has been a very enjoyable experience and a great learning experience. She brought her knowledge and experience to me and helped me in most of the challenges I faced in my leadership position. Remembering a phrase she always uses with me several times, "working in business, not for business". This one sentence really helped me with my business perspective and my role as CEO. Marcia is genuine and very wise, with an admirable intelligence, energetic and stimulating. I always recommend it. Márcia works in a complete context including professional and personal, and the results are excellent.
Bill F. CEO Nova York
After been referred by my psychiatrist, I recently came to Marcia Smith and she immediately made me very comfortable with my transition to her. Also, using the online service is fantastic. I look forward to the help she can provide me.
John P. New York
Marcia is a great mentor and is committed to helping you achieve any goal you set as your goal. I am very grateful and happy with the results Marcia has helped me achieve in my professional career and in my personal life. I know I would not be where I am today without the guidance, patience, and support she gave me. I will always be grateful!
Christopher J. Lawyer – Wall St NYC
Marcia is a very supportive Psychotherapist. She listened intently to my concerns and provided extremely practical advice to help me overcome my anxiety. She was motivational but not pushy, open and relatable while maintaining the appropriate level of professionalism.
Marcia Smith takes her work seriously, and compassionate and intelligent. She understands the complicated issues surrounding eating and weight control, with her support, guidance and online training via Skype she helped me lose 40lb I gained through menopause and now I've learned from her to maintain my weight.
Eve F. Florida
Marcia was there for me when I most needed her. Her experience, empathy, and understanding have helped me tremendously. I am grateful for her help and highly recommend her.
D. W. Greenwich, CT
Dr. Tonioli Smith is an excellent health coach because she is a good listener and because she is able to motivate and inspire her clients. She has extensive knowledge about the emotional aspects of food issues; she has compassion and a great sense of humor; it provides a highly personalized approach. I have managed to have healthy life balance and in my relationship with the food that I eat. I would recommend her as a health coach for those who seek to heal their relationship with food; those who have difficulty accepting their body and their weight; and who wants to try a new and exciting approach to health.
