Mary received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of Missouri at Kansas City, and her Master of Arts degree in Professional Mental Health Counseling at Webster University.

She enjoys counseling teens and adults, as well as couples.  Her frame of reference is a client-centered approach and she specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).  Mary has helped clients with ADHD, as well as with emotional health challenges such as depression, grief, anxiety, stress, and trauma-related issues.

Before becoming a counselor, Mary worked at Children International, a Kansas City- based child sponsorship organization.  After her children were born, Mary worked as a stay-at-home mom and volunteered as a Stephen Minister with her church.  Mary returned to college to become a therapist after realizing this was her life-long dream. 

Mary is passionate about helping people find their voice and their confidence.  She feels everyone has the right to be loved and to find their purpose in life. She says, “I consider it an honor and a privilege to work with my clients.  We learn from each other!” 

Mary enjoys spending time with her sons and fiancé.  She loves photography, nature walks, reading, travel, and time with friends and family.
