About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Interventionist with over 20 years of experience in working with populations between the ages of 3 and 85. I have spent the majority of my career specializing and practicing in the fields of trauma, crisis, abuse (emotional, physical and sexual), sexual dysfunctions and disorders, family, marriage, relationship and intimacy, severe mental illness, health (psychoneuroimmunology), military, anxiety, stress, anger, and anxiety.

I use a variety of techniques which stem from Cognitive-Behavioral, Humanistic-Existential, and Sociocultural approaches. I believe in beginning the healing process from a solid foundation by focusing on "self". I help individuals to build esteem, confidence, and efficacy to rebuild self-identity through education and guidance. From a solid foundation and place of self-love, I help clients to explore the challenges and barriers which block growth, acceptance and living the quality of life they aim for. I create a therapeutic alliance with clients on their journey of self-discovery, providing healthy challenges and support to clear away mental and emotional blocks. Therapy is a process which involves hard work, not an event; therefore, trust, respect and communication is vital in this therapeutic relationship.

I aim to increase the quality of life for my clients by helping them achieve their goals through a holistic approach. I utilize techniques from my professional expertise in life, health, and relationship coaching, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Sex Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Pranic Healing, Interpersonal Neurobiology, EMDR, Anger and Brief Solution-Focused Therapy. If you seek change and are committed, I am the clinician for you. I will challenge you with a patient, compassionate and empathetic approach and hold you accountable to your commitment. Your commitment is to yourself. Why not live life freely, fearlessly and fiercely?

Mary is an amazing therapist. She is very knowledgeable and actually listens to my problems and concerns. The information she has given to me explains so much. I've only been working with her a few weeks but I have learned so much from her. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Webb mixes compassion with practical tools. She encourages me to express my emotions in a way that does not cause flooding. I feel listened to and supported.

Mary is absolutely amazing. She's here for me no matter where I'm at. Highs, lows, and everything in between. I trust in her and her advice and have made huge progress overcoming my depression. She's great and I'll hold on to her through BetterHelp as long as possible.
