As a mental health therapist, I work with clients who want to find meaning, identity, and discover a life worth living. Each of us has the ability to recognize our strengths and use them as a strong foundation for recovery and change. I believe therapy is most effective within a caring and non-judgmental environment, and building a strong therapeutic relationship is a key component to recovery and change. I have special interests in working with those with eating disorders, body image, substance abuse, mood disorders, relationship concerns, self-esteem, spiritual struggles, and life calling. Other areas of therapy include anxiety, depression, OCD, body image issues, mindfulness, nutrition, athletes, self-identity, and other co-occurring mental health disorders. I use an integrative therapeutic approach utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, solution-focused, and strengths-based techniques.

Mary has been a practicing therapist for 23 years. She has worked with adults who struggle with eating disorders and trauma for the majority of those years. Mary has training in EMDR, Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. All of these therapies are designed to assist individuals in processing trauma, empower themselves and replace negative sensations with neutral or positive sensations. Mary is compassionate, empathetic and she creates a safe space that facilitates healing. She strongly believes that people have the resources and inner strength to overcome adverse experiences. She also addresses each client as a person with unique circumstances and collaboratively works with them to achieve their goals in therapy.
