Mary is a wonderful person who understands me completely. She is very caring and sympathetic. I am always happy to speak to her knowing I will have great results

Mary is considerate and respectful, she is also happy to listen to my needs and meets me where I am. I feel she has changed her style of talking to me as she has learned more about me and how I operate which I really appreciate. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Mary has been such a wonderful support for me in a time of need. She has been a pair of ears to hear out my concerns and struggles and has helped me discuss options for me to overcome issues I’ve been having personally and in my relationship. She is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience which certainly helped when I discussed issues with my relationship and work related issues that impacted the relationship. She has been an invaluable support that I needed during this time and I am very grateful for that!

I get very nervous talking to people, especially people I don’t know, and I am very comfortable talking with her
