The thing about Mary I appreciate the most is the extra effort that she makes. The check up that she does. Some times I am not doing OK that week, but I don't want to bother a therapist with a whole session. But Mary will do short check ins, just to make sure you are OK. That is something I really appreciated. Because sometimes I will forget that I have someone that I can talk to. I will honestly forget, but then Mary checks in, and I realize that I can talk to her.

A caring and knowledgeable therapist. I am pleased with the session I had with her and her communication outside of the live sessions as well. I would certainly recommend her to others.

I haven’t seen Mary for long but she listens, asks questions and gives great homework. I don’t feel judged for being honest with her about different situations which means I’ll have a better experiance

Mary is great. She is very insightful and uses The Better Help resources very well to uncover self discovery and then provides guidance.
