"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent…"

Meet Marie

I invite you to learn more about me and how my passion for helping others led to my work as a professional counselor.

 

Growing up with 5 younger siblings was chaotic and fun. I enjoyed leading the way and mentoring my sisters. After college I fell in love, got married, and had two precious children. While my children were growing up, I volunteered in their classrooms, taught religious education, was a cub scout leader and a girl scout leader. I enjoyed every aspect of parenting. Today I continue to have a close relationship with my adult son and daughter, as well as with their spouses.

 

After graduating from the University of Michigan, I began my career in the automotive industry. I spent a number of years excelling in the industry, earning several patents. During this period in my life, I learned the importance of clear communication, as an innovation only becomes great after it is clearly communicated to someone who values it. Interacting with executives as a member on the management team honed my listening skills and my ability to understand customer needs.

 

I have always felt that one of my greatest strengths is in helping others. As the oldest of six, I gained a lot of experience doing that while I was growing up. Throughout my adult life, I’ve noticed that people seem comfortable confiding in me, telling me that I’m easy to talk to and that I’m a good listener. I decided to hone these skills by pursuing my Masters Degree in Counseling.

 

All of my previous life experiences culminated to building Harmony Family Therapy. I absolutely love working with my clients, and I am honored by the testimonials that a number of them have written about their experiences with Harmony Family Therapy.
