What our clients are saying

We appreciate and are thankful for every client and are particularly blessed when they share their healing experience with us. Occasionally a client will so eloquently describe their healing journey that we want to share their discovery with others. Please be inspired to reflect on your own journey as you read of this gentleman and his healing.



 Living in an imperfect world throughout our earthly pilgrimage, we long for paradise. We thirst for a world of love, happiness, and a sense of belonging - just to list a few - that will restrict our suffering and disappointments. 


Addictions will not quench our thirst. As a psychotherapist, Mary-Ann aspires to explore, counsel, channel, and integrate new pathways toward healing and recovery. It was also during therapy that I unexpectedly came upon a quote from Chico Xavier that reads: “Though nobody can go back and make a new beginning… anyone can start over and make a new ending”.  I desperately wanted to change because I needed to change.  This was my reality. 


Therapy with Mary-Ann, the recommended readings, and taking time for meditation and prayer, it became quite clear that my destiny is determined by the choices I make. A book brought to my attention by Mary-Ann, ‘The Discipline of a Godly Man’ by H Kent Hughes, undeniably states that without discipline, very little can be accomplished such as overcoming addictions and developing life-changing habits toward recovery. I realized that this on-going therapy was not only changing me but also my universe. Jim Carrey, Actor and Comedian, once remarked: “The effects we have on others is the most valuable currency we have”. 


My healing began with one small but very significant step when I decided to pick up the phone. When I reflect back to that particular day, I believe this one small step from an individual seeking healing also contributes to the wellbeing of mankind.


Meeting with Mary-Ann was a true blessing.  Thank you and God bless.
