Tinker Bell

Mary has been a voice of reason for me over recent months as I’ve worked through both work-related and personal concerns. From the first phone call, Mary helped me feel safe to openly discuss what was on my mind and how it was impacting my work-home-life balance. Mary has a great ability to sum everything up that she hears, and then help me identify ways to self-identify and manage in an ongoing manner. I certainly recommend Mary for both her counselling and coaching services.


Absolutely amazing! I’ve been seeing Mary, as needed, for over a year and she has always made me feel safe to explore any issue I’ve brought up with her including separation, family issues and past trauma, grief and loss.. I wouldn’t have had the growth I’ve had without her. Truly an amazing therapist. If you want someone with a wealth of knowledge and can hold a non-judgmental space for you, Mary is the perfect therapist for you. Can’t sing her praise enough.
