Maria, I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your insight, wisdom, and experience. Your share yourself so gently and generously. I have already learned so much from you which makes me realize how much more I would like to learn! I would really like to learn to see the way you do–the broader context for behaviors and beliefs. You seem to reach right into the depth and meaning of each gesture in a way that really touches the client and awakens them to their deepest need. I hope to work with you more…

In my experience Maru’s work is beyond her extensive training. Her talent exceeds therapeutic technique. With her sensitive awareness Maru is able to meet and track a client’s process with compassion. She listens deeply and recognizes habits and patterns that tend to sabotage well-beingness. Maru guides the client somatically to subtly reprogram and reconnect by considering other options of┬ámovement/ behavior, allowing healing shifts to be experienced from the inside out. Another bonus is her delightful sense of humor which brings playfulness, lightness and enjoyment to every session.
