Mary was trained at Michigan State University and has been a practicing physician since 1993. Her focus now is on teaching, educating, and writing about healing and how the journey inward is the way forward. She believes that being first connected with ourselves and then with others brings the best joy and fulfillment in life. Additionally, she believes that we are emotional beings having a physical experience. Emotions are us, we are emotions, the physical body houses the emotions and then mirrors our feelings back to us by what we have come to know as symptoms and signs. Mary feels by identifying and understanding our emotions, our biology, and our backstory, we can learn how to connect and reconnect with ourselves and with others. We can be well and live well.
