Mary is exactly who I was searching for! I interviews several therapists, and had sessions with a couple before finding the right fit with Mary. She guides lovingly from her professional expertise as well as her life experience. She challenges me to reflect and grow, to take accountability and consider my own deeper needs and desires. She’s compassionate and a clear and direct communicator. I really value Mary and the support and guidance she has offered me!

Mary is phenomenal. She gives great homework and it excellent at distilling problems down to their core issues. Highly recommend.
