Maryellen is the expert on women and anxiety.
Women are faced with a unique set of pressure: perfect wife, perfect mom, perfect body, dinner on the table, the list goes on and on. All of these pressures are on top of the fact that women twice as likely to develop anxiety than men? Women are also twice as likely to develop depression than men. Not to mention that over 48% of women have been in at least one psychologically and/or physically abusive relationship? Maryellen has extensive training specifically for women going through these concerns that too many women often have to face.
Forget about your image of a mystery person in a big fancy chair, asking you about your dreams. That’s Freud, not me. I am a real human with some knowledge of psychology that might be helpful to you. My approach is to help people take a true look at themselves, which is super difficult. As you take that look, however, I will be your number one fan through the process. Together, we can dig through the crap and work towards grabbing that life you want and becoming that person you know you can be.
As a human, I may be intelligent, but also swear a lot. While being kind and empathetic, I will still call you on your crap. The client/therapist relationship is like no other relationship, and it is so cool that I get to be a part of people’s lives in that way.

Maryellen does not love:
– Burpees (but she does them with a lot of complaining and swearing)
– People who have negative views of therapy who have never tried it…give it a try! If you don’t like it, that’s okay!

Life is full of challenges and sometimes they are more than one woman can handle so she seeks out her friends or family for support, but sometimes you don’t want to discuss your issues with your family or friends. You want an unbiased mind to hear and help. I was recommended Maryellen by a friend and it was a great fit. I needed someone to see the unhealthy patterns I was creating in my life and help me to see them too. I needed someone to listen patiently but also speak truth to me about my own actions and the actions of others involved. Maryellen has a very relaxed feel about her when you meet her. She never acts as though she knows more than you. She truly helped me to dig deeper and understand more thoroughly the things I was facing, which gave me strength to resolve some pretty big issues in my life. If you are struggling with anything, from self acceptance, marital issues, fears, doubt, or grief. Just know that Maryellen is a great listening ear, she’s not going to give you false advice or expectations. She is going to prepare you to handle what life is throwing your way. – 33 year old female client
I have been in and out of therapy my whole life. After a big change in my life I realized it was time to go back for more help. I found Maryellen and she has been amazing. I have had many therapists and coaches and I have never had someone as kind, honest, and genuine as Mary Ellen. She doesn’t ever tell you what to do or what your doing wrong. She helps you discover yourself and the best way to work through things. I have developed a self confidence and personal awareness that I have never had before. Self Care is never easy or pretty but the year and a half I have been with Mary Ellen has been the most pleasant it could be and worth it 100%. – 28 year old female client
