Throughout life we all face challenges, at times these can become increasingly overwhelming, and positive outlooks may start to seem more and more limited. Finding a therapist you feel you can work well with is critical to a successful treatment outcome and is key to making positive life changes.

She feels that therapy is unique for each individual and tailors treatment to fit each individual’s needs. Through a combination of therapeutic approaches Mary empowers her clients to reach their goals by focusing on their strengths, develop a greater self-understanding, identify thought and behavioral patterns that are interfering with their happiness, and master coping skills to improve their quality of life.
