Maria is completely friendly, professional, reasonable, and fair to both me and my partner. We would highly reccommend her and it's been very helpful that she speaks Spanish as well. Thanks so much.

Maria is a great counselor! She actively listens to what is being said and provides feedback and tools to help you in the situation you are in. I recommend Maria to any individual or couple that is trying to work things out and improve a better relationship with themselves and/or their partner.
