A Note From Mary: Therapeutic Style
My style as a therapist is warm, down-to-earth, and interactive. I am open to understanding how you experience the world and intuitive about responding to you with genuine empathy. Through prioritizing the dynamics between us, I create an environment that allows you feel comfortable and supported as we navigate sensitive topics and difficult conversations.
In the process of working together, we form a collaborative therapeutic partnership to look at all aspects of your life while addressing your concerns, identifying and breaking unhealthy behaviors, and developing your strengths. I provide education around your issues and offer useful tools for everyday application that give you the confidence and ability to deal with similar issues in the future.
The foundation for our work together will be built upon mindfulness which is simply bringing awareness to your thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in any given moment. When your consciousness deepens, you become empowered to effectively cope with challenges as they arise and achieve greater balance in life.
