“Based on her professional knowledge and intuition, Mary’s presentations for our Parenting Teens program were always well planned. Her demonstration of daily family issues through role play were exceptional effective for participants to become aware of their own strengths and weaknesses as parents. She suggested different tools that were effective and practical for working with teenage children in different situations. Mary’s strategic facilitation skills guided participants to become self-reflective and motivated them to explore empathy through listening and observation. As a result, her presentations have a significant impact on newcomer parents and families that attended the program.”
