Maggie is brilliant at what she does. She doesn't sugarcoat and will help you find a way out of what you are going through. Would highly recommend!!

I'm a 27 year old man and I started seeing Maggie for a variety of reasons. I suffered from self-confidence / self-esteem issues, anxiety, lack of focus and depression. In just 13-14 weeks (one session a week) she has helped me revitalize my life. I was skeptical at first, I thought to myself how can just talking to someone help me figure out what path I want to go down? or help me out of anxiety?... I couldn't have been more wrong. She is very very good at what she does. Straight talking, doesn't beat around the bush or sugar coat anything and its exactly what I needed. During the time I was seeing her, I started doing my football coaching licenses and I'm convinced I passed because she helped me believe in myself. Right now I'm writing this review from Louisiana, US. I wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for her and I haven't had a negative thought, felt anxious or felt depressed since I have been here. In fact I feel more confident in my own abilities to get things done than I have ever before. A life changing 3-4 months. If you're skeptical, don't be. She is worth every single penny. After all what price can you put on your health / mental health.
