Maria is exceptional at her job. I entered counseling discouraged, disheartened, and disconnected to myself. Maria helped me rediscover who I am and own who I am with confidence. I am grateful for her wisdom and encouragement and highly recommend her to anyone wanting a faith based approached to counseling!
