She is very sweet very compassionate she explains everything to the best of her ability and allows more explanation if needed

I didn't know what to expect. I haven't tried therapy before, but she's fantastic. I have a hard time opening up on anything that's really bothering me to the point I hide it from myself. I've come to realize that a lot of of my work stress that was my initial issue wasn't the actual cause. It was my Dad's health problems and how it's impacting my family. It was just easier to try to deal with work stress than acknowledge what's happening to my Dad. I didn't even realize that was what was happening until she pointed it out to me.

Appreciate her compassion towards what I’m going through and attention to details specific to my life, she takes good notes and always remembers clearly where we left off

Mary is so very helpful and non judgemental. I have had a few therapist before and I have always felt the need to hold back information because of feeling I would be judged. She makes me feel like I can be open and honest with her and myself. It is truly helpful in becoming a better person for myself and my family!
