I truly believe struggles can change life for the better if we learn the lesson needed to move forward.

Looking back on the last year and a half or so of working with Marie, I can see a big improvement in myself and my mental health. She provided me with tools and helpful ways of thinking about how I think, feel, and react to situations. Meeting with her feels like a weekly visit with my supportive auntie who listens and provides advice, but also focuses on how I make progress with my goals and shares worksheets with relevant exercises to work on whatever I am struggling with. She has helped me through some tricky emotional situations and has provided me with ways to practice feeling less guilt and worry, while prioritizing myself and my self-esteem. Many of these ways of thinking were completely new to me, or different perspectives I never considered before, and now I try to remember them every day. Thanks so much Marie!
