I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 16 years working with individuals, couples, families and adolescents. I began my career working with high school students in a church setting which I enjoyed, but realized that young people needed so much more for their social and emotional well-being than I knew at that time. During the years, I discovered the power of family dynamics in the mental health of children and adults. This led me to pursue my Master's in Social Work from Aurora University in Illinois and become licensed in Illinois and recently in Montana.
I have experience with people who have depression, anxiety, PTSD and grief issues. I have also done therapy with survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and have experienced other trauma in their lives. I have a therapy style that draws on several therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Therapies. I believe that holistic approaches that acknowledge the mind, body and spirit connection can be very effective with people who are dealing with today's fast paced lives that often lead to stress related problems.
Finding balance as we go through life transitions can come by attending to our mental and physical health on a daily basis. I enjoy working with people who are actively engaged in their own health and well-being and have been told that I connect well with people of all ages. I am eager to help you work towards health and balance in your life.

Thanks so much for your help! You have helped me through a lot!
She's the best don't know what I would do without her.
Mary has helped me in a variety of ways; she has helped with ways to cope with anxiety I have been experiencing.
After every session I feel better with what we have discussed and I feel empowered with new skills to better address everyday stresses in my high pressure job.
I've only had two sessions with her, but I find Mary to be an excellent counselor. She is resourceful, respectful and a great listener. I highly recommend her!
Mary has been very helpful and she really cares and spends time reading and carefully answering my posts. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Very honest and open. Listens attentively and gives feedback that allows you to actually rethink your actions and want to do better. She made me aware of mindfulness patterns that I've ignored when anger might arise.
