Often times individuals grow up in family environments that contribute to disruptive attachments with others. This leaves people searching for a way to fill this void, and love, sex, and relationships can become a maladaptive solution. Having an addictive relationship with sex and/or love can create chaos in one’s life and the lives of their loved ones. Mary specializes in working with sexual addiction, love/relationship addiction, partners of sex addicts, and couple’s therapy.
One’s relationship with food and their bodies begins at a young age and is often negatively impacted by their family of origin, culture, and social media. This contributes to negative beliefs about oneself that can influence food intake and exercise patterns. Eating disorders negatively impact one’s sense of self, and largely contribute to depressive symptoms and anxiety. Mary specializes in working with those struggling with all forms of disordered eating, exercise issues, and negative body image.

Mary specializes in helping individuals identify traumatic events and patterns and work through these memories using EMDR therapy, somatic therapies, and experiential modalities. Mary also specializes in working with complex PTSD and dissociative disorders.
