"Mary saved my life. I honestly don't know where I would be today without her knowledge and expertise on medication management. I came to her after a terrible experience working with another provider and she guided me back to a path where I am now stable and functioning again. She approaches her sessions from a trauma-informed perspective and really takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns. She genuinely cares. Highly, highly, highly recommend her!"
