As a Therapist..

Hello, my name is Mary and I am a Life Coach, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Expressive Arts Therapist and have been practicing in Orange County for 19 years. I am passionate about my work as a Therapist and look forward to helping you explore the roots to your current struggles and change the patterns that have held you back in life.

I have a general philosophy of therapy that has a developmental perspective. I believe we are greatly impacted, positively and negatively, by our first experiences of relationships in our families of origin. Understanding and processing these experiences help us move from being 'stuck' into a place of freedom, allowing us to live and to love ourselves and others.

Life is a series of seasons and sometimes we need help along the way. My goal is to see women confront their fears and re discover their potential for greatness!

I work from my office in Mission Viejo, making every effort to create an environment for you to encounter total acceptance, safety and a sense of hope for your future. I am a believer and an active member of Coast Hills Community Church in Aliso Viejo CA. I would consider it an honor and a privilege to partner with you on your journey of healing and restoration.

As a Life Coach..

I am so excited and happy to announce that I'm adding Life Coaching to my Counseling Practice after almost 19 years. I have developed a great capacity to believe in and identify women's strengths and I want to help women focus their energy on finding and pursuing what they most want in their lives, careers and ministries.

Together we will identify the specific changes you want to see unfold for you this year. 

I will help you tap into your own inspiration and creative energy. I'll help empower you through a step by step process helping you build a better life by living intentionally and making THIS YEAR YOUR BEST YEAR YET!

We all want to figure out how to create a life we really want to live, this is YOUR YEAR!! So please, give me a call or send me an email TODAY!
