I have worked with Mary Ann to help me with my fibromyalgia. I can say, without exaggeration, that her spiritual and stress management counseling (her combination of empathy, strength, insight, patience, and compassion) and Korean massage have been a God-send. I have far less pain, and more important, I can actually do many of the activities I had previously given up. I cannot recommend her enthusiastically enough. It's good to feel like I'm getting my life back!
Caring for a loved one with serious illness:
Mary Ann is extremely perceptive and compassionate when it comes to helping people caring for loved ones with serious illness. She's a great listener, and has amazing recall. She is skilled at understanding a complex dynamic and at asking just the right questions. Her massage is the perfect complement to her counseling. She is patient and wise. I leave her office feeling relaxed, grounded, and better able to support my partner with advanced heart disease. I am truly fortunate to have found her.
Over the past ten months, Mary Ann has been working with me through some very big transitions in my life and I could not have navigated these changes with as much honesty and grace without her help. Her skills helped me identify and focus on the most important aspects of this change and face the fears that have hindered me so much in the past. She helped me to clearly identify my values and ground my decisions using these as a guide. Her sensitive and insightful counsel will always guide me, and I'm grateful to know she's available to help with my next challenge.
