Hello! My name is Mary.
Are there changes you would like to make or difficulties and challenges you want to overcome? Have you lost a loved one, a spouse/partner due to divorce or a break up, a job, or a pet and are finding it hard to move forward? Do you have a chronic or terminal illness and are finding it overwhelming to navigate on your own? Do you suffer from depression, anxiety or a mood disorder? If any of these apply to you, I would consider it a privilege to assist you on your journey to wellness.
Working together, my approach is fluid and open to change based on what works best for you. That said, this is a safe, judgment-free space and I value your feedback. Wherever you are on your journey, I'm willing to meet you there and support you in reaching your desired destination.
I have a master's degree from Nova Southeastern University and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. My experience over the last four years includes working as a grief and bereavement specialist at a hospice care facility, working with children ages 3-18 at a community health organization, working with teens and adults in private practice, and facilitating various support groups. Prior to my work as a therapist, I held various part time jobs while being a mom to my four children. After a diagnosis of breast cancer two years ago, I developed a particular passion for working with clients with chronic and terminal illness.
I utilize a variety of techniques and partner with my clients to assist them with achieving their goals. I have had varied experience in the helping field and I am passionate about working with individuals throughout the therapeutic process. I use an eclectic approach to therapy, using various techniques including person-centered therapy, solution focused therapy, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), psycho-education, cognitive behavioral therapy, and art and play therapy.
Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or would like to talk more. I definitely understand that finding the right therapist can take time, and I take absolutely no offense if we try this out and you feel like it isn't the right fit. Overall, I value honesty and want you to feel empowered to do what's best for you.

Mary had been a phenomenal guidance during a hard time in my life.
Mary is extremely kind, patient, and sensitive to my needs. She is an incredible listener and by far the best counselor I’ve ever worked with. I am sooo grateful I found her!!
Mary is very sweet & she's a great listener! I am very happy thus far & have recommended many people to the app thanks to her.
Mary is absolutely wonderful. I came to BetterHelp and matched with Mary, at a time when my world was falling apart around me. Worry, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem seemed to consume my life. I was losing grip on my relationship, and myself. I had completely lost who I was. Mary is SO positive, compassionate, and easy to talk to. She's the most caring therapist I've ever met. She truly cares about her clients, which for me, is a big deal. We share things in common, which makes it easier for her to understand. She helped me gain a more positive outlook on myself and the situations in my life, consistently tells me how proud she is of me, saved my relationship that was hanging by a thread, and to be very honest, she saved my life. I look forward to seeing her each time and gaining her more and more of her insight. I wish I had found her sooner! Thank you so much for all that you've done and continue to do for me, Mary! You are a wonderful therapist, and a beautiful human being.
Mary is wonderfully understanding and talking with her gave me a lot of relief.
