Hello, my name is Mary Baummier and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and National Certified Counselor in Florida. I have over 5 years of experience providing mental health services to a variety of populations. My expertise in client populations include seeing children, adults, couples, and families. I have served clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), physical and sexual trauma, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anger management concerns, and bipolar disorders. I also provide parenting skills for parents struggling with family concerns.
My counseling style is cognitive-behavioral therapy. This orientation allows me as the therapist to guide my clients through achievement of their goals by understanding their thoughts and feelings that lead to certain behaviors. This method can be used for a variety of disorders, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar disorders, and adjusting to difficult life changes. I encourage and empower my clients through my techniques and enable my clients to be their best selves. I also use mindfulness with my clients, which helps my clients to become in tune with themselves as well as developing positive skills for coping. I offer a flexible schedule and can provide early morning, evening, and weekend hours.
Deciding to begin therapy can be an emotionally challenging time and I am here to support and empower my clients. I treat each client with respect and understanding with their unique situation. My goal is to work with my clients to assist them with overcoming what led them into therapy.
I look forward to working with you!

Mary has a wealth of compassion and kindness that helps you feel comfortable opening up. She seems both knowledgeable and without judgement which are important in delving into things that can sometimes be awkward or uncomfortable to dwell on but I always feel like she genuinely cares. Being able to type my thoughts also has helped to put things in perspective and communicate things I struggle to put into words and I already feel very positive about my experience with her and am happy I found her through BetterHelp. I think she is not only a great therapist but also just a genuinely great human being.
Mary has been awesome so far she is helpful and listens well I haven’t been on BetterHelp for long, but so far she has made an impact.
I have had problems with depression and anxiety, but when I began talking to Mary, I started feeling much better. She has a way with words and it is comforting to me. Mary is straight forward , but with a gentle kind touch. I am so grateful to have her in my life, I look forward to her advice and its always on target.
Mary understands everything I say and remembers.
I have had several on line counselors - Mary is the best so far. Un-shockable comes to mind, which is good to help open up.
