What Others Share

From the initial contact, I was impressed by how comfortable I felt with the process. I plan to continue meeting with my therapist and feel very strongly that she completely understands ~ not just the things that I verbalize ~ but even those feelings that I am not quite sure how to articulate.

I appreciate Maryanne’s advice and honesty. I feel that she sees my situation pretty much the same way I do, which makes me feel that my values and work ethic are valid. She also understood my frustration with how companies are run ‘these days’ and offered valuable advice to try and work through it. She also complimented me on my ability and dedication to take care of the very difficult situation I was faced with over the past year+ which makes me feel that I made the right decision. She was always pleasant and friendly and very easy to talk to ~ she made it easy to convey my problems and concerns and I feel she could relate to my situation.

I've been seeing Mary Anne Fisher for about five years, both with my husband and individually. She is incredible. Empathetic, yet someone who will challenge you. I am so grateful to her for all that she has done to help me. I always feel better after our sessions. She definitely “gets” me. I can't say enough about the positive impact she has had on my life. Thank goodness for her.
