Written by M.A. on Oct 26, 2020 after counseling with Maryanne for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I’ve worked with Maryanne for 3(or 4) sessions and I’m already feeling more confident and positive to overcome my negative emotion and behaviour patterns and live a happier life.

She’s professional, resourceful, patient, supportive and loving. Her sessions are all well-structured and she never rushes our conversations because of the time limit.

Very often my issues are related to my partner, and Maryanne gave me empathetic responses while also offered non-judgemental and constructive feedback to support me understand and improve my situations.

I’m very grateful to have found her and can’t thank her enough for all the valuable tools and techniques she taught me to improve my life.

Manyanne listens extremely well. She never interrupts and responds back to me for clarification. She really seems to understand my concerns and worries without ever having met me in person. She has offered some useful strategies and checks on my progress in an manner that is not overwhelming.

Maryanne is a very patient and kind individual whom makes talking about difficult things easier with her caring nature. Her listening skills are unparalleled. Highly recommend her if you are having a hard time opening up or coming to terms with the fact that you need help.

Throughout this whole ordeal that’s been affecting us all, I decided to begin counseling and therapy. Maryann has been such a blessing, and has opened my eyes and also my mind to a variety of new perspectives and has given me what I believe a lot of us have been needing; someone too open up too. I can’t thank her enough for all she’s already done for me, be it through her advice, her perspectives, her deep and meaningful questions, or overall her genuine compassion and and empathy. I look forward to our weekly sessions and I can’t express enough how much it means that she takes the time to check in on me. Once again, thank you and I definitely believe she’s worth giving the opportunity to be your counselor/therapist.
