Maria has really helped our marriage find passion again. She challenges us to prioritize fun and creativity. The result has been amazing and very beneficial for us.

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!
