Maria was crucial to the recovery of my mental and emotional health. Times are hard right now, and if you’re finding it difficult to cope or manage, I highly recommend reaching out to her or her team. If it’s not the right fit for you, she’s always willing to point you in the right direction!

N.C.

"I came to Maria a total basket case. Maria quickly took me under her wing and taught me how to cope with grief and loss and aided in working towards sobriety from alcohol. She also helped provide me with resources to grow my faith in God. She is truly a blessing."
