Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My personal mission is to help individuals, couples, and families reach their full potential in meeting goals, attaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and gaining the skills necessary to become the person or people they feel they are called to become. I believe in the healing power of community and healthy relationships in one’s life. I strive to create a safe space where clients can explore and work through issues that may prevent them from having these positive things in their lives. I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Theology and a Certificate in American Humanics from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri. I received a Master of Arts Degree in Marital and Family Therapy and a Certificate of Advanced Study in Pastoral Care and Counseling from the University of San Diego. I have a wide array of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. My background includes work in: the not for profit sector at Big Brothers Big Sisters, youth groups for several years, Catholic Charities, San Diego Hospice Camp Erin grief camps for adolescents and children, and the University of San Diego as a Resident Minister. Mary was also a pastoral counselor at Cathedral Catholic High School and a MFT Intern for the San Diego Phobia Foundation, and the San Diego Institute for Couples & Families. Mary is now an Owner and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice at Mary J. Counseling Services.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
