Mary is a licensed associate professional counselor who likes to focus on therapies which help people to break free of struggles in the forms of persons, places, and things. Mary believes it is important to not just think outside the box, but not get in the box in the first place.
Her belief is we all have a story to tell and if we can locate the root cause of anxieties and fears which hold us back then a new story can be written, one in which we are all empowered to be our best and authentic self. Her goals are to assist the client finding themselves through mindfulness and introspection. Mary aids her client in bringing down the walls; offering a safe place for the client to express their authentic self, removing obstacles and believing in diversity, no matter a client’s path, gender, sexuality, or spirituality. Mary works closely with the LGBTQ community, seeing individuals 13+. She is working with Psychoeducational LGBTQ+ Groups for individuals from 18 to 29 years old and hosts age specific groups for persons who are trying to navigate “coming out in the south.”
Mary also works in another agency with Intellectually and Developmentally Delayed adults and has experience with ADHD and Autism. She completed her internship and residency working in substance abuse and trauma.
