I am currently a licensed Counselor in Montana specializing in mental health issues along with issues dealing with substance abuse and addictions. I have a private practice where I offer services to adults, adolescents, children, and families. I also work as a clinical director in a Department of Corrections setting providing substance abuse and mental health treatment for individuals with Felony DUI's. My expertise is in working with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and also in helping children deal with trauma. Living in rural Montana, I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients with various mental health concerns.
My counseling style is empathetic in nature. I begin by getting to know my client and what will work best for them. The most frequent orientations that I utilize include cognitive-behavioral therapy, person centered, family systems, and mindfulness. I use an eclectic array of techniques that will be determined with the client and then utilized to develop a treatment plan unique to the client's concerns.
Counseling is a process that can be very beneficial to help address various aspects of a person's life. I look forward to building a therapeutic relationship where we can work together to meet your needs.
A little bit about me outside of Betterhelp. I enjoy being a grandmother to 3 grandchildren and spending as much time with them as I can. I also am an avid traveler and have goals to visit as many countries as I can in the future. I enjoy planning my travels as much as I do the traveling part, so I am always planning for some future trip. If I can be outside, hiking and enjoying nature, I am, one of the many blessings of living in Montana.

Mary really listens to you and presents real solutions to getting you out of your funk.
First session tonight with Mary, and she was wonderful. I had a lot of stuff together out, and she was empathetic, a great listener and really informative and reassuring. I am already booking in my next vis-a-vis session and look forward to working with her over the coming weeks!
