Mary has been employed as a university administrator, director and therapist in community mental health, a private therapist and consultant. She has spent twenty years integrating psychotherapy, deep tissue bodywork, energetics, Reiki and intuitive knowing into a unique practice.  Mary currently teaches high school students to explore their own spirituality.

As the mother of two daughters, Mary says, “It is my daughters who have re-awakened the experiences I had as a child. Over the past thirty years, I felt the significance of my childhood, but never talked about my “intuitive knowing, my seeing and divine guidance.” My children have been the catalyst for me to look deeper into others experiences and realize my purpose.
