About Marion


"Out of every adversity comes a blessing." ~ Marion McGowen


Marion has been a student and practitioner of complementary health care since 1978. Through her personal healing journey, Marion became convinced of the need, and the ability to let go of past issues in order to move forward with confidence into the future. This is her focus in working with others who wish to do the same. Her objective is to utilize 35+ years of experience in the Holistic healing field to create a safe and secure foundation where individuals can shift old school patterns of belief into new ones - whereby Transcending Paradigms was founded.

Marion McGowen is COO - Chief Overcomer of Obstacles.



My Story


After suffering for 20 years with severe migraine headaches and no traditional medicine was working, I found myself in the hospital. During that time I discovered the problem was not my debilitating headaches, it was the internal suppression of all my needs, wants and desires combined with an inability to express myself. I had suppressed it all within me and now it was screaming for attention. By working to diffuse the long-standing emotional trauma I was still carrying, not only did my headaches subside, I was able to take charge of my life in a new way. 


I bought my own car, learned how to drive, got a job and began working in the hospitality industry until eventually I created a state-licensed private trade school for bar tending and restaurant management. As life continued, so did various obstacles and challenges. What changed wasn’t that life stopped happening, or that I lived in a bubble free from pain, heartache, heartbreak and loss - instead I chose to actively do something about the trauma I experienced. After losing my daughter to a sudden heart attack, I could have withered up, withdrawn from life and hid but I didn’t. I picked myself up, dusted myself off and began one moment at a time, one day at a time and continued on. 


I’ve experienced the loss of two daughters, two sisters, witnessed drug addiction in close family members and still found a way to keep my head up. I learned how to survive in life by simply looking for a blessing in every adversity that I faced. My skill set isn’t based on my 35+ years of training, it’s predicated on a natural ability to assess circumstances, analyze problems, get to the heart of the matter and take charge. I am a very direct, straight-shooter, who is authentic, honest and has a heart of gold. There is no time to waste when you’ve been struggling or are in pain. If you are ready to take charge of your life in new ways, to move beyond your own obstacles and be responsible for yourself - don’t wait another second to start, contact me now to schedule a session.
