JoyReform was founded by Barbara Mariner. Barbara is a Transformational Life Coach and German native. She is a passionate individual, pursuing and promoting a minimalist, no-nonsense lifestyle. 

With JoyReform, she facilitates empowerment through online courses, classes, and live events. Using an interactive, experiential style she takes you on a heart-opening journey.


Barbara has had an extraordinary, zig-zagging life spanning across several continents. Very early on, she noticed that the ordinary path wouldn’t work for her. Evidently, that has led to an unconventional, rich, big, beautiful journey that has and continues to inform her and her work.

Barbara has a deep love for using self-awareness and radical honesty, and she is personally experienced with moving through many of the same life transitions facing her clients.

Barbara believes that life is too short to keep hitting the snooze button and that time is precious. By living fully awake and curious, with authenticity and valor, each individual is capable of creating a deeply fulfilling life, grounded in passion and purpose.

Based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and with clients both locally and globally, Barbara works closely with her clients to create a dynamic relationship that supports a powerful journey and outcome.
