About Mark and Maureen
True Success is the culmination of three decades of therapeutic experience, helping thousands of people uncover the roots of their unsuccessful behavior, releasing those barriers, and then systematically building true competency in each aspect of life.
The approach was created by Mark and Maureen Fallon-Cyr, two Harvard-educated clinicians with deep expertise in treating children, adolescents, families and adults, as well as consulting to numerous educational and health organizations. Over the years, Mark and Maureen have reached beyond their traditional training in analytical, behavioral and trauma-based psychology, enriching their clinical experience to become more effective therapists. Their personal explorations into social emotional learning, mindfulness and somatic release work bring a sophisticated, nuanced, effective approach to helping people reclaim their joy, fulfillment and capacity to live a truly successful life.
Married nearly 30 years, the couple met in Boston while pursuing advanced degrees in child and adolescent psychology. Following their training, they traded the Northeastern cityscape for a more relaxed Western lifestyle, raising their two children, spending time outdoors as a family, and developing their work. In Colorado, Mark and Maureen operate a successful private practice for people of all ages dealing with a wide spectrum of issues, including trauma and other complex issues.
“True Success is the culmination of everything we’ve
learned over the past 30 years. It applies everything we
know about helping people help themselves.”

Mark and Maureen Fallon-Cyr have heartfully created True Success with an extensive and all-inclusive life map to teach people how to “reboot” our brains and transform our old ways of thinking into genuine happiness. Like the both of them, this “personal plan of action” is an inspiring message of hope and personal transformation.
True success gave me an amazing way of look at what I value in life. I could really understand what was shared in class and now, I continue to relate and apply the course material to things I do in my life. Looking at how the domains interact and build on each other was perhaps the best part for me – making it clear how things I do in one part of my life, affect so many other parts. True Success has given me valuable insight into my own world, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in a new, refreshing, and totally practical way of looking at their own world.
I’ve taken the True Success course with Mark and worked with Maureen to apply True Success for my own personal growth. As a mental health therapist (and individually), I believe this work is both cutting edge and accessible to all. Through this work, not only will individuals benefit, but humanity at large.
