Mary Ann Francis LMFT of Mending Hearts, LLC Therapy is a process. Connection, realness, compassion, and nurturing the mind, body and spirit is what Mending Hearts LLC is about in bringing that process to life. For me, therapy doesn't have to be cliche or a stigma, versus just being able to talk about real life s***.

Life presents circumstances that we may or may not have control over, but we always have a choice in how we react and feel. We work together with individuals to identify and act on the choices that ultimately align with a happier, more authentic lifestyle.
