A native New Yorker, Mary began her career in the public relations and marketing field. She worked in both the Las Vegas and Los Angeles markets, including a decade-long stint as a corporate spokesmodel for companies such as Black and Decker, LG and Oracle, before burnout helped her discover her calling as a healer.
Mary’s unique hybrid approach to healing blends massage with assorted tools from The Resilience Toolkit, with emphasis on the therapeutic tremor. This combination of hands-on massage, along with other evidenced-based mindfulness and movement techniques produces deep relaxation, helping to reduce symptoms of chronic anxiety and pain.
Mary sees clients at her private office at Fusion Wellness and Physical Therapy in Sherman Oaks, where she specializes in helping clients who struggle with chronic pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, and musculoskeletal blocks. She offers new solutions to both men and women suffering from a multitude of “below the belt” health issues and emotional symptoms.

As a clinical intern, Mary spent six months facilitating TRE to people experiencing homelessness and addiction at Homeless Health Care Los Angeles.

I was lucky enough to meet Mary when she attended a yoga class I was teaching. As we talked afterward, I discovered her connection to David Berceli's TRE program, which I'd read about but never tried. Mary generously invited me to a TRE lesson, where I felt the power of the exercises, as well as the bliss of the shaking practice, for myself. Over the years, I've been impressed by Mary's knowledge of the body, by her expertise in the TRE system, and by her compassion. I recommend her to anyone seeking somatic-based stress reduction instruction.
