TESTIMONIALS

"I don't even know where to begin.  I started seeing Mariah when I had reached the lowest  and darkest point I've been in my life.  The first time we spoke on the phone to set up an appointment, I felt an immediate sense of relief and hope just at the sound of her voice.  When we first met, that feeling was confirmed. Mariah is very welcoming, calm, reassuring and non-judgemental, and I found myself telling her things in that first meeting that I had never told anyone, as well as some things I hadn't even acknowledged to myself.  Over the months of working with Mariah, I've had what I refer to as two moments of enlightenment and, for the first time in my life, not only know who I am, but accept who I am and love that person.  Mariah provides a safe space for me to put down my guard and face my personal "demons," while gently challenging me to dig deeper as a means to allow me to discover my truth.  She has also given me a number of tools to use in my continued exploration and growth and, when I'm feeling a pull to the "old" me, she's in my head, pushing and supporting me until our next session.  I had been with another therapist for a couple of years and never even scratched the surface of what I have done in my short time with Mariah.  To me, she is just simply magic and I am truly thankful I took the first step and found her"

"There really are no words to describe my gratitude for all the work I have done with Mariah. She has helped me so much. I came to Mariah when I was in crisis and she happened to answer the phone. I didn't realize at the time, that was the beginning of a new path for me. Mariah has helped me to see things in a new way, she listens without judgment and lets you see things for yourself through hypnotherapy and deep relaxation. I have learned so much about myself. There were some emotional times and I was able to really look at past behaviors and forgive myself. I always tell people, I could never have done this work through talk therapy. To really dig in deep, I think the tools and techniques that Mariah uses are totally necessary"

"I didn't know about hypnotherapy before I was referred to work with Mariah. I felt skeptical about this type of work. I am so glad I was open to work with Mariah. She is an incredible person and she knows her job so well. She is like a magician.  After each session with her, I feel a transformation with incredible changes. I see her once a week, and each time I am left feeing my inner strength, courage, and a belief in myself that I had not previously known. Thank you Mariah. I have been blessed to meet you!"

"Mariah is gentle, wise and held sacred space for me to scoop up the forgotten, broken pieces of myself and helped me compassionately put them back together. I worked with Mariah for six weeks and it was some of the most impactful self-work I've done. 
I gained valuable insight into my processes, habits, learned to incorporate my child self on a deeper level, and healed my relationship with my mother. The resentment was buried deep in a memory from my teens that had been sleeping silently without my notice all these years.
I had the opportunity to integrate the homework and exercises she gave me which built on our sessions. Mariah is a powerful healer and gift to our generation. Everyone experiences grief, anger, pain, and anxiety but hardly any of us have the tools to heal these emotions fully. I highly recommend working with Mariah to integrate these hurt pieces of ourselves to live a life more at peace"

"Mariah comes from the heart, which is evident immediately upon meeting her. She is both intuitive and inquisitive, capable of guiding you towards asking the right questions and allowing the highest version of self to answer. I was offered a safe environment to explore the healing aspects of hypnotherapy and other concepts integral to my personal progression. Working with someone who is as knowledgeable and yet relatable as Mariah was a breath of fresh air compared to other professionals I have encountered. She shows up for her clients and honors not just who they are, but who they can be. If you are looking for someone to hold space for you to free your mind, you will find your needs met in working with Mariah"

"I have discovered a sense of peace that I’ve long been searching for through working with Mariah. Her intuitive skills and spiritual approach to therapy has been essential for my personal growth. She has held a supportive and compassionate space for healing the injured parts of myself. In the few months that we’ve had together so far, she has helped immensely with locating my inner strength. Mariah has gracefully given the integral heart space I’ve needed for my cerebral nature. The wisdom and care that she has provided is invaluable and will be with me for life"

"I have been seeing various talk therapists most of my life, and not all my experiences have been positive. Mariah was able to assure me that I would be held in safety with her right away. She answered all the questions and concerns I had about trying out a new type of therapy, putting my worries at ease. I am someone who has trust issues, but I really trusted her to keep the container comfortable for me enough to let my guard down, and keep it down. She is full of compassion for you, you can tell in the way she talks, listens and guides you in the therapy.


This is different from talk therapy because you are speaking and reflecting from a relaxed state. The somatic aspect of this therapy I find particularly helpful, because you feel like the answers and images are coming from somewhere deeper inside of you, instead of your analytical and socially conditioned brain. I come out of my sessions, feeling pleasantly surprised by what came out of me, and with greater clarity around the issues I’m working through.

I recommend this therapy and Mariah’s approach to anyone who feels like they’ve hit a plateau in talk therapy, or if they sense there is something deeper going on with them that they’re having trouble accessing on a conscious level"
