Mary is the best and most caring, knowledgeable and insightful therapist anyone could ask for. She really knows how to very quickly get to the heart of whatever we are discussing and her insight is invaluable to me. She has really helped me in a very short amount of time. I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. Mary is the best. I’m amazed and grateful that Better Help was able to match me with the perfect person. Thank you

Mary has been nothing but caring and supportive. She challenges me to be honest with myself and look at things for what they are. She hears me and lets me express myself fully without judgment or negativity. I always enjoy my conversations with her, and would gladly recommend her to anyone else who struggles with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and/or personal growth!

May has been a wonderful therapist and I've learned a lot from her. It hasn't been long but I'm so pleased by how well we connect. I highly recommend Mary because she is passionate about what she does and very experienced. I strongly believe this time with her will help me significantly.

Mary is a very good therapist. She has real world experience as well as the educational background to go through the science behind phycology. She is a definite asset to better help and to her clients. I love working with her and it always helps me to see things from other perspectives and helps me work through the challenges of my life. She has inspired me to start my college career as a Phycology Major with a focus on mental health. She has shown me a brighter future for myself to heal and come full circle to come back and help others.

Mary is a very caring, non-judgemental, great therapist. I love her methods of teaching and helping me to understand my past trauma and childhood patterns. She is well-versed and highly experienced in her field with trauma and addiction / habits. I am so grateful for my time with her.

Mary has a unique set of expertise that she knows is not for everyone, and she’s very upfront and professional about it from the beginning and allows you to decide for yourself if you resonate with her. She’s a very good listener and a huge resource and asset to any journey you go on to better yourself. She is one of my most trusted sources for anything I’m going through and I’m very thankful for her and for BetterHelp for bringing us together!

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.
