LMFT #3115 (Expires: 2023-03-31)


Written by D.A. on May 31, 2021 after counseling with Maria for 1 month

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!
