Been working with Mary for about 6 months. Has assisted me with past trauma, current family issues, substance abuse, being new parent, and work issues. She acts with grace in each topic, and always appreciate our sessions and end up coming out feeling refreshed. 10/10

It has been a pleasure working with Mary. I can say that Mary possesses the empathy and ear to listen for matters that are of deeper concern or worth exploring to gain a better understanding. I would highly recommend Mary. Thanks for all your time and efforts, kudos!

So far from our first session, Mary listens to me and allows me to speak my mind. We have not dug deep into my sessions with her yet, but she is willing to listen first, which is a great start. I am excited about doing the work with her.

Mary Fernandez is wonderful. Her questions and journal entries help me think about situations differently than I see them ; she's kind and caring; her worksheets and assignments are helpful; she communicates clearly; and she knows a great deal about her areas of expertise; love that she uses songs, sometimes, to give a lens for patients to see through. 10/10

Mary is a great therapist in my opinion. She is non-judgemental, easy to talk to and is very caring. I am glad that she and I connected. She helped me through a rough patch in my life and gave me insight and advice that I will follow.
