About Me

Everyone desires to be healthy, happy, and whole. If you are expecting a result, envisioning an answer, or seeking a resolution for your challenges, you may simply need an idea regarding how to address them. You may even wonder if a solution exists for your situation. Be assured, there are no real limits when you pursue a path that leads to living your best life ever. In fact, it is your time! One choice - among others – is to "make a life change that will change your life". Pause and picture this, You at your very best. This is not so far removed from your grasp!

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who holds a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. I practice as a cognitive behavioral therapist. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that is active, collaborative, goal-oriented and is based on the cognitive model. That means we will work together to understand the role that our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors play in our current struggles. In addition to support and insight, CBT offers clients specific strategies, skills and tools that you can use to make changes, relieve suffering, and achieve your goals.

I can help you make discoveries and establish connections, as you find yourself along the way. By maximizing the use of thought processing and development, in a cognitive manner, healing and happiness can begin. These great experiences can also continue. Therapeutic practices have always offered this type of comfort, while prompting the presence of joy.

You deserve to reach your goals. It is possible to overcome your current difficulties, if any exist. It is a perfect time, to take the time, and find lasting joy. I am compassionate about assisting others in exploring possibilities, utilizing abilities and finding optimal resolutions in the most satisfying ways. Therapy provides the tools to empower healthy living.

Mary is a phenomenal source of wisdom and guidance. She listens with empathy, acknowledges hardships, empowers through exercises, and commends through celebration. I could not have been paired with a better counselor. Mary is a God-given advocate for you.

Mary is one of the best counsellors I have worked with. She has been a very present help when I have been anxious and overwhelmed. I have learnt a lot about myself from Mary and she has given me good tools going forward. This is a definitely a journey and I feel I have had a really solid start thank you Mary. Some things in life are very hidden in the mind and it is so nice to have someone who understands. Thank you so much.
