"... an amazing therapist. When we were at our wits end with our daughter, Mary helped us to understand her feelings and frustrations. Through individual counseling sessions with our daughter and group sessions as a family she opened the door to family communication and healing. She taught us how to effectively communicate and we immediately saw positive results. The counseling had a profound and positive impact in her life and ours." L. S. (2020)
