Going through a challenging divorce, I met with a series of therapists with my former spouse, but only Mary was effective in helping to bridge the divide between us, enabling us to more effectively co-parent together. She helped my kids to successfully adjust to their new world, setting them on a healthy, happy path. She continues to help me with my parenting (and dealing with life). I have found her intelligence and insight only to be matched by her compassion and care. I have recommended her to other friends in need, and I know of no one who isn’t thrilled to work with her. If you need support or help in your life, you will not regret working with Mary.

I am incredibly grateful for Mary Leopold’s guidance. She helped my children and myself tremendously. My children looked forward to seeing her. With her warm and supportive demeanor, she engaged my children. She really listened to our concerns, promoted our health, and gave us the tools we needed to work through a very difficult time. I truly believe my children’s resilience is due in large part to their time with Mary. I highly recommend her for adults as well as for children.

Mary has been a great help to me. She’s been with me through thick and thin. I don’t know what I would do without her. I consider myself very lucky that I was referred to her and would highly recommend anyone needing help to consider Mary.

Without Mary Leopold I would not be where I am now. Happier, more content and confident, being able to try new things, having made some real connections and strengthening my family. When I was really desperate, she gave me the support and care to get through it. When with her, you know, that this is truly your time. Life will always be full of challenges, but now I have a solid ground to stand on, that can’t be so easily shaken Thanks, Mary!

Mary has been a wonderful help to my two children. She is caring, patient and simply wonderful. My son looks forward to his sessions because he thinks he is playing with Mary. My daughter loves going because she views Mary as a secret friend whom she can tell everything to. Mary is excellent!! I view her as our lifesaver.

I searched for years to find someone who I could openly talk to about life issues that I needed help coping with that I could not deal with on my own. I was close to giving up on the idea until I stumbled upon Mary Leopold from a highly respected source who recommended her. She has helped me through so many obstacles I have faced and I have been seeing her for over 8 years. She is so warm, approachable, open, easy to talk to, and so extremely smart that she hits on issues that would otherwise go unnoticed or unrecognized without talking them out. I now see Mary with issues as they arise, and she knows me so well, that she is able to help me connect why certain parts of my past life may be burdensome or causing issues with me in my adult life and helps me get through as well as providing me with the right tools to get through. I wish there were more than 5 stars to describe this incredible woman!!

I am a preschool teacher, and I have had the pleasure of consulting with Mary on several of our students. She was so knowledgeable, warm, and accessible, and came to the school to educate and consult with our staff on various anxiety-related issues some of our young students were having. I am always pleased to refer families to see Mary for anything that might arise with our young students.

I am convinced that Mary loves my child as much as I do! She is very connected with me and my husband, and is very helpful when it comes to the parenting piece of our work. My son has been seeing Mary for several years, and it has been a wonderful journey watching him grow and develop into a more confident, relaxed little guy. He loves his visits with Mary and sees his time with her as very special and grounding. She is always available to touch base with us between sessions when needed and has been involved with other professionals (his school and pediatrician) when necessary. Thanks, Mary!
