Mary is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#144212) practicing in Los Angeles, CA under the supervision of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Kate Behzadi (#97100).

Additional specialties include life transitions, work/life balance, stress, and ADHD. 


I help clients grow confidence and problem-solve by unpacking their resilience and exploring untapped potential using a mix of psychodynamic, emotion-focused, and strengths work. I spent over a decade working in the entertainment industry, navigating the pressures and expectations, and pull from my creative past in working with clients. The personal aspect that most informs my work is my identity as a woman. Coming from a place of curiosity and cultural humility, I attune intuitively to female clients and specialize in women’s issues. The gendered norms, societal coercion to ‘do-it-all,’ and traumas women face are myriad and undeniable. I can help you develop coping skills to create the life you’re seeking.  


In your first session, we'll explore what brought you in and any goals you want to achieve. At your pace, we'll discuss the community, culture and family that shaped your thoughts and behaviors. Focusing on how you interpret feelings and events, we will explore your strengths and how best to utilize them to reach your goals. Many of us have trauma or family situations that feel too overwhelming to address, emotional wounds bandaged but unhealed. Sometimes we endure depression, anxiety, or feeling out of sync and don't know how to move forward. Through empathy, authenticity, and humor, I collaborate with clients to navigate difficult circumstances by exploring their past experiences and current motivations. I approach each client as an individual and partner in the therapeutic process and deeply believe in the capacity for growth and positive change.
