I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. Your past does not have to determine your future.

Mary is a wonderful listener, gives ample space to speak and feel emotions without intrusive opinions; and has incredible knowledge to intrapersonal relationships. While we are early on in our relationship, I’ve had much therapy experience and have been thrilled with her expertise early on. Highly recommend!

Mary has been compassionate, insightful, and supportive of us , as we have transitioned to retirement, and coped with our son’s alcoholism. She also has challenged us with questions and is awesome at engaging us until we reach resolution.

Thank you, Mary. We will miss you and feel like we can always get back in touch. You are a blessing!
