Maria has helped me to reframe my thoughts, apply cognitive skills, take a daily approach to life and learn to appreciate what we do have, but with te intention to improve self and life. Thank you
Maria has been of immense help to me. I started counseling a few months ago and have made incredible improvement thanks to Maria. She is patient, kind, and knows how to listen and help what needs help. I am so blessed to have her as my counselor through difficult times.
I have enjoyed my sessions with her so far. She tills me what my part is in fixing the issues I've brought to her Also, how to deal with issues that I can't fix, but can overcome.
Maria is great.
