I’ve found Maria to be very warm and easy to talk to. She explained each step to me patiently and has given me a lot of support. I found that she has helped me tremendously in grappling with grief and anxiety. Also that what she has helped me through during therapy has been impactful and life changing through the awareness she has brought to me.

Maria, was very understanding and helped me get better And fully recover. . I cannot thank her enough. When I first visited her, I was in a terrible state, she taught me how to relax and be mindful. She also helped to make me understand what was going on and how to move forward. I really looked forward to our sessions, they definitely helped me, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of my family or friends.
