I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1997. I’ve been a practicing therapist in community mental health centers, hospitals, private practice and residential rehabilitation treatment facilities. I have extensive experience working with those who are coping with depression, anxiety, grief/loss and trauma. Issues related gambling addiction and narcissistic abuse syndrome are also a speciality of mine.
My treatment approach involves providing empathy, deep understanding and compassion. I combine nurturing and support with practical skills that can be taken and applied to everyday situations and challenges. I feel very strongly that the most important aspect of counseling is the connection and comfort you feel with the counselor you choose to embark on your journey of healing. I believe challenging experiences are opportunity for growth and a third objective party that can offer prespective and support that can be extremely enlightening and beneficial.
In terms of availability, I check and respond to messages at least twice daily, seven days a week. I offer live chat, phone and messaging sessions each morning weekly ,a couple evenings a week and Saturdays.
I look forward to working with you!

We love Mary. She's helped my wife and I understand our individual attachment styles, behaviors and triggers for common issues. She has also helped us develop better ways for us to communicate and build trust within our relationship.
Mary is the best
Mary is an EXCELLENT listener and REALLY CARES about my challenges.
This is my first experience working with a counselor. I left my first meeting feeling she listened and was able to connect with my wife and I.
