Mary’s philosophy includes the idea that each person comes to treatment with their own strengths, goals, and dreams, which hold keys to recovery and healing. Helping clients find a sense of purpose and meaning, build on their strengths, and gain hope are important elements in her work.

Mary is dedicated to providing quality care with the latest information and innovations, as well a time-tested methods. Mary supports individuals accepting themselves - their mistakes, challenges, feelings, and desires - while simultaneously encouraging, supporting, and challenging them to make needed and important changes.
Mary brings clinical training in evidence-based practices such as systemic therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), EMDR, Gottman therapy, Emotion-Focused therapy, two-person psychology, existential therapy, and Gestalt therapy supports the challenges many of us face as we embark on a journey of change.
Mary has worked with clients from all backgrounds and walks of life, with a variety of challenges: from large and small families to couples and individuals, from adolescents in residential treatment struggling with self-harm and suicide attempts, to adults in intensive outpatient treatment with co-occurring (mental health and substance use) disorders, to couples and individuals in outpatient therapy working to find their own sense of connection and value.
For couples she offers couples therapy, as well as couples' groups. Couples will find services to support a range of concerns including perpetual problems - the problems that come back again and again, conflict styles and improving conflict, communication, intimacy, building friendship, and more.
