I came into Mari Beth's Outpatient therapy group when I was lost, broken, and had no idea where to turn. She helped me with group therapy, one on one, and helped me dive deep through guided meditation. She introduced me to the world of Alcoholics Anonymous, and assisted me getting into rehabilitation centers two different times. Over the last 5 years, she has been an incredible therapist and confidante in my life.
She is empathetic and caring but pulls no punches. She really makes one look at his or her behavior and explore alternatives to drinking and drug use to deal with life. She is non-judgmental at a time when a person is probably feeling overwhelming shame and embarrassment. She also helps the addict's family members explore their role in the addict's disease, since it is, after all, a family disease.
I have been a client of Mari Beth's for over three and a half years. Initially we started out with face to face sessions, which were great. Careers, however, took us in different directions. She set up a Virtual Therapy Connect account for us to continue our sessions and the service provided is great. It is just like an in-person session with a safe, secure, and very convenient way to get the service you need! I no longer have to drive or sit in a waiting room, afraid someone I know will see me pulling up or walking into the building to get the help I need. Mari Beth will provide you with a professional, fun, relaxed, and convenient counseling session in the privacy of your own home. I would recommend trying this out if you are on the fence.
Our experience with Mari Beth as a Wedding Officiant:
Mari Beth made the process of officiating our wedding the smoothest and easiest it could be. As the wedding approached we were unsure of the finite details of the ceremony and she was able to fully easy those nerves with ample examples of scripts she had used previously that could fit any of our desires. She lead both the ceremony the day of and the rehearsal the day before with clarity and poise beyond anything we could have ever imagined. We would both highly recommend her to any of our friends or family as they plan their special day!
