My name is Mary Slaton, LPC, NCC. I earned my counseling degree from Loyola in 2001. When everything is aligned in our lives, we feel happy and fulfilled, but we all encounter obstacles. At times, we need encouragement and guidance to find our way back. Seeking counseling shows a belief in your ability to bring about positive change in your life.
I am here to assist you and encourage you as you explore alternatives that lead to the satisfying life you envision. I believe that we are goal-oriented, but we are sometimes unaware of how we're trying to gain that feeling of significance and satisfaction. Along the path to achieving your goals, it helps me to find out about the various areas of your life, such as social, spiritual, love, self, and work. As we explore the various areas of your life, we’ll discover patterns. As we uncover these, we can determine what is working for you, so we can explore ways of increasing these positive experiences in other areas of your life.
I believe people have the capacity for self-awareness and the ability to resolve their problems with support and assistance. So many people wander through life feeling like there's more or that things could be different, so thank you for taking that brave step toward setting the goals that will bring you the relief, happiness, and joy that we all seek.

Mary is very patient and understanding i am very comfortable,with discussing and trying to find solutions to problems with mary...
In only two sessions Mary has already taught me CBT tools, I feel less anxious and stressed and thankfully some relief. She is easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable, she has asked thought provoking questions and shown me a way forward.
Mary seems to be a well trained counselor. She always understands my situation and is very respectful. She delivers good advice that has helped me deal with my current issues. Since we live in different time zones it sometimes takes a while to respond to each other, but of course that's not her fault. During our live sessions she is very comforting and will always listen to what I have to say.
