Only a few sessions but she is very attentive to the issues and offers good sound advice.

Maria is a great therapist! From my first session, I was able to connect with her and open up about the experiences that were challenging my mental health. This feeling of ease helped me to understand the tools I needed to feel comfortable in my self and achieve my goals. I would recommend Maria to anyone who suffers from low moods, stress and anxiety.

Maria has helped overcome many of my personal issues in short period of time. She is very caring and the thing I like most about her is she tells what you need to hear not what you want to hear. She is a very genuine person and I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to talking to her every week!

Maria is a great counselor and guide. She’s not over the top with and understands the root of everything shared.

It’s been a pleasure working with Maria so far. I have found it so easy to open up and discuss things I haven’t been able too. Maria is warm, friendly, supportive and a great therapist. Thank you!

I first met with Maria while I was going through a really dark time in my life. I was struggling with alcoholism, and nearly lost my family due to this. Our sessions helped guide me through the process of getting and staying sober, and all the feelings and emotions that go along with that. We also dealt with the relationship side of things. I am happy to say that I followed her advice, I'm still sober, my family is back with me, and we're enjoying our lives together more than ever. Thanks Maria!

Maria is truly what anyone looks for in a therapist. She shows compassion, understands you and gives you the honest advice you would like to hear and her words are genuine.
