About Me

I am MH counselor/therapist with a counseling style that is warm, empathetic, integrative, pragmatic, and person-centered. I believe that a therapeutic relationship should be a collaborative one in which you and I work together to discover creative strategies, solutions, and, at times, even humorous insights to help you practice new ways to thrive. I have experience counseling adult individuals on family/relationship issues, and matters coping with grief, trauma, addiction, existential concerns, sexuality, and recovery.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and client-centered counseling. My work draws its influence from the counseling theories and styles of Carl Rogers, Carl Jung, and Murray Bowen. My goal is to overcome stigmatic labels and empower the client on a path to wellness.
I look forward to working with you!

I have only had a few sessions with Mary so far, but I can definitely say she just GETS it. Whether it’s discussing what happened 5 min ago or something from 15 years ago, the conversation carries as much weight and attentiveness as you’d like to be reciprocated. Definitely recommend her :)
