She says: “What’s most rewarding about working with people is the privilege of witnessing them drop all their masks and get real, and realize their own value and worth. I’ve been where these women and men have been and I am deeply empathetic to their situations, which allows me to help them feel, heal, and deal with their current challenges. It is my mission to help people heal, one broken heart at a time.”
Maryanne has a track record of helping people create the relationship of their dreams, raised a healthy, thriving teenage son who is now in college, and is happily married to David. She is working on getting her Master’s Degree in Psychology at Dominican College, San Rafael.
