My name is Mary Slaton, LPC, NCC. I earned my counseling degree from Loyola in 2001, and I have been working with people for almost 20 years. When everything is aligned in our lives, we feel happy and fulfilled, but we all encounter obstacles. At times, we need encouragement and guidance to find our way back. Seeking counseling shows a belief in your ability to bring about positive change in your life.
I am here to assist you and encourage you as you explore alternatives that lead to the satisfying life you envision. I believe that we are goal-oriented, but we are sometimes unaware of how we're trying to gain that feeling of significance and satisfaction. Along the path to achieving your goals, it helps me to find out about the various areas of your life, such as social, spiritual, love, self, and work. As we explore the various areas of your life, we’ll discover patterns. As we uncover these, we can determine what is working for you, so we can explore ways of increasing these positive experiences in other areas of your life.
I believe people have the capacity for self-awareness and the ability to resolve their problems with support and assistance. So many people wander through life feeling like there's more or that things could be different, so thank you for taking that brave step toward setting the goals that will bring you the relief, happiness, and joy that we all seek.

I’ve been wanting to write this review for awhile now because Mary has been so helpful and I thought maybe this could be a small way of showing appreciation, but I never knew what to write and then I realized this doesn’t need to be complicated. Mary is definitely a great counselor, very professional, but I especially like that she’s not cold, she doesn’t just sit there while you chatter; she’s human and kind and patient and very resourceful. She’s helped me accomplish so many things and make significant progress. I can honestly say I would have had more downs than ups if weren’t for her.
