Four Part Communication Guide that takes you from Chaos to Clarity
Do you keep falling in the same trap when trying to communicate? Is there always a winner and a loser? Does someone always give in or give up? Do you feel disconnected and misunderstood?
There IS a way to come to mutual agreements that take care of each person’s needs and allow you to feel more connected.

Experience is our greatest teacher
I am inspired to assist people in creating the life of their dreams
Mary offers private counseling to adults and couples as well as experiential processes, classes, workshops and retreats.
So often life events threaten our sense of peace and contentment. Addictions/compulsive behaviors steal our freedom to live as we were designed. We get caught up in repeating the same patterns that lead to the same results and feel frustrated, anxious or unhappy.
I can help you discover the hidden/unconscious beliefs or emotional wounds that interfere with feeling whole, then teach you the tools that empower you to heal and correct faulty assumptions about who you are.
I offer a blend of cognitive and transpersonal therapy to assist people in managing symptoms, correcting faulty thoughts and beliefs and expressing emotion in a safe, non judgmental environment. I teach communication and assertiveness skills as well as anger and stress management. Specializing in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief and loss, life transitions and relationship issues.
I believe that relationships are our greatest teachers and healers. Problems in couple relationships frequently have roots in childhood. I provide a mix of uncovering childhood issues and patterns, that are being acted out in the relationship, with teaching communication skills. The focus is on creating a new relationship based on what the couple identifies as their ideal partnership. There often can be difficult factors effecting problems in relationships such as infidelity, violence, addictions and mental illness. If any of these are present, they must be addressed before couple counseling can be effective.
Hypnotherapy and Experiential Processes
Interactive hypnotherapy allows the subconscious world to be explored and corrections can be made at the root cause of issues, symptoms or faulty beliefs. Healing, forgiveness and acceptance can be done in a way that is more meaningful and permanent. All hypnosis is self hypnosis and you also benefit from learning how to completely relax the body and the mind. This modality is very helpful in recovering from trauma, childhood abuse, OCD, low self esteem, phobias, etc. Guided imagery journeys, past life regressions, relaxation techniques and other experiential exercises assist people in having an experience generated from their inner world and guided toward recovery an wholeness.
Radical Forgiveness Therapy
Based on the book Radical Forgiveness, Making Room for a Miracle, the tools of Radical Forgiveness are easy to learn and people are able to heal and move forward from issues that have kept them out of peace or happiness. I was trained, in 2000, by the author, Colin Tipping, to provide this spiritual therapy and workshops using this technology.
I am a Reiki Master and trained in Access Bars. Each of these modalities offer deep healing, relaxation and an exchange of energy that allows healing to take place on all levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Aromatherapy is often used with these sessions.
Ecotherapy Sessions and workshops
Allow Nature to be a co-therapist in your healing and growth journey. By taking our session outdoors, we allow the healing properties of nature to assist in meeting your needs. The elements, plant and animal life enhance the process by offering symbolic meaning and intuitive messages to guide and heal. Meet me at the beach, park or the forest. Let the natural world welcome you and bring you what you need to see, feel or hear. Research is showing the positive benefits of nature in treating depression and anxiety.
Ecotherapy outdoor workshops allow you to meet with other nature lovers to experience the gifts of nature and gain insights and direction. Outdoor group activities are designed to give you an experience that only Nature can create. Practice mindfulness, learn about Native American symbols and see how to deeply connect with nature and yourself .
I received a clinical ecotherapy certificate from Ariana Candell, LMFT, RDMT in 2016. Check the calendar for dates in the cooler months.
Free To Be Me! Workshop
What does it feel like to truly be free? We value our freedom to choose for ourselves what is best in our lives, but life is also full of limitations and conditions beyond our control. Is there a way we can confront these limits and see them in a different way? Do you hold the key to the prison of self doubt and fear of failure? What would your life be like if you were more self loving and self accepting?
Take a journey of self discovery, releasing the old ways that have held you back and open to the infinite possibilities for your life. Come away with a renewed spirit and a lighter way of being. The Butterfly calls you to expand your awareness, spread your wings and call forth your inner joy. The workshop will take you through the 4 stages of the life cycle of the butterfly, the Egg, Caterpillar, Cocoon and Butterfly. Through experiential exercises, meditations, art, music and movement you will move through the transformation process and obtain the tools to live as your were designed, free, unlimited, joyous and powerful! Check the calendar for more details and dates.
Women’s Weekend Retreats
I am inspired to create retreats in nature that inspire women to ‘break away’ from their daily lives and create ‘breakthroughs’ in consciousness as they connect more with their spiritual nature. These four day retreats are usually held in Florida, Tennessee, Colorado or California. Check the retreat website for details on upcoming retreats. www.heartofmotherearthretreats.com
VIP Programs and Private Retreats
I can customize a program for you to give you all the attention you need to heal or break through the barriers that have kept you stuck or in pain. Packages can include VIP sessions ( 3-5 hours ), follow up phone sessions, workshops, and private retreats. This can be for individuals or couples.
