I have really enjoyed working with Mary Beth so far. She has made me feel reassured and validated in my issues where other therapists didn’t. I have been comfortable to open up about the issues and anxieties I have been facing, getting answers for why I feel and act this way and working on strategies on how to overcome them. I instantly felt comfortable with her and would definitely recommend working with her!
