Finding Mary was the greatest thing I have ever done for myself. When I look back at my life before I began seeing Mary it was like I was stuck in groundhogs day...making the same mistakes, choosing the same relationships and allowing so many to take my power from me. The journey I took with Mary to change these patterns was not always easy, but it was worth every minute. Today I see clearly, am in a loving relationship, have my dream job and know that no matter what I will be ok. I will be grateful to Mary for the rest of my life for helping me to break free of my painful patterns and to finally live the life I was meant for.Profile Female

I wish I would have found Mary years ago. I had no idea what kind of fog I was living my life in, what kind of emotional pain and anxiety I was actually suffering, and most importantly how it was shaping and controlling my life. It was a journey, often challenging, often difficult, but the reward was that I got my life back. When I look back, before I began the journey of healing with Mary, everything seemed so difficult; now, there's an ability to move through life with an ease I could have never imagined. I might have done the work but I can't imagine having done it without her guidance and help.Profile Male
I was referred to Mary by a friend who raved about her. This was the single most meaningful referral ever. I can honestly say working with Mary has changed my life. I’ve been in and out of therapy since childhood, having worked with 4 different therapists through my early 40’s. While I was able to share my deepest thoughts and gain some perspective, their cookie cutter approach never helped me break new ground in my quest for serenity. In just a handful of sessions with Mary I started peeling back my onion in a profoundly different way. Healing more with every session and finding my true self in the process. The innovative techniques utilized, combined with Mary’s unassuming, warm and caring personality has allowed me to flourish both personally and professionally. Knowing that I can visit Mary for ‘tune-ups’ as needed, helps me to stay on course and enjoy my journey rather than focus exclusively on my destination.Profile Male
At the age of 46, I was faced with several very daunting challenges that for years I felt I could handle on my own. I learned the hard way that sometimes we need help from a loving, objective, experienced and professional source to help guide us through the feelings and emotions of our darkest days. I also learned that asking for help can be a very, very hard thing to do but it is also the best thing to do. Mary Bondi was recommended to me by a close friend and my time with her was one of the single best decisions I ever made. Mary helped me to tackle my addiction issues but also helped me sift through a lot of feelings of shame, guilt, remorse and sadness over a failed relationship and other issues that were crippling me and preventing me from moving forward with my life. Mary never told me what to do, but rather walked me through my feelings and allowed me to see the direction I should take that was best for me. I cannot find the words that would most eloquently express my gratitude toward Mary and how valuable my experience with her has been. If you feel that you need help with something, don’t be afraid to ask for help. It is the best thing you can do and Mary will walk you through.Profile Male
As someone who had grown professionally by solving problems, I was the last to recognize the symptoms of problems I was having. By the time I was willing to recognize I had problems, I felt like I was being suffocated by those problems. I reached out to people I knew to ask for suggestions on who I could see; I was really struggling with issues in my life. I was contemplating making massive life changes on a whim, and I realized I needed someone to help me. Mary Bondi was recommended by a trusted friend. Even in the first session, I could feel progress. After several sessions, Mary recommended that we try an alternative treatment (EMDR) that she described as a way to get into the subconscious memories faster. She described it as a way to remain conscious through the whole session but tap into deep subconscious memories. It was incredible how successful it was. Several sessions later Mary let me go as a client saying that she believed our work was done, and that she was always available, but at that point she did not feel we should schedule any regular sessions going forward. I assumed that because of what I had achieved in life and business I should be able to handle almost anything. I was wrong. Mary gave me the additional tools I needed to handle what I was going through.Profile Male
I came to Mary after declaring bankruptcy for my business. I was experiencing severe anxiety, depression and guilt. I wanted to know why I was blocking the flow of money into my life. Every time the money started to flow, it would shut down again. EMDR was the modality that worked wonders for me. It was through Mary's skilled expertise in EMDR, through her providing a safe and non-judgemental environment and her sincere desire to help me, along with my stubborn determination to reveal and heal the unconscious beliefs. I trusted Mary without reservation. The negative feelings about myself were intertwined with my childhood, my family, my friends, my marriage and my business. As they began to surface, I became conscious of how low my self-esteem was and how much healing needed to occur. If I was going to reach my original goal with regards to money, I had to start at the core and learn to see my worth and value in every area of my life and ultimately my whole persona. Mary and her use of EMDR gave me my life back, she gave me "ME" for the first time in my life. I am anxiety free, I sleep through the night and I have a successful business. I feel whole, I feel inner peace and I feel a sincere love and appreciation for myself. My relationships in every area of my life have never been better. Wow! Life is good! Thank you Mary for never giving up on me! Thank you for your skillful guidance and healing techniques! Thank you for seeing the good in me when I couldn't and mirroring it back so I could finally realize it in myself. You are a true asset to your profession. With sincere appreciation and respect, I write this testimonial.
