Seren T. (2/4/2020) Maria Young has a calm and insightful approach to therapy that really helps to bring understanding and change. Over the time I've worked with Maria, her support and validation have been instrumental in helping address personal challenges that have come up for me. I strongly recommend her services and am glad she's available so that I can recommend her to those I care about.
Jeffrey L. (2/3/2020) I've known Maria Young for many years. I would enthusiastically recommend her for therapy and guidance services. She was a colleague at California Institute of Integral Studies. I have always known Maria to be diligent, thoughtful, courageous and insightful. Maria has always fought for the awareness of Minority rights. She is extraordinarily gifted.
Anthony S. (1/12/2020) Maria has helped me when I was feeling sorry for my self and was unfocused. She helped me get back on track, no patch work. Maria has a way and methods to help. Like they say you can feed someone a day...teach them to cook and feed them for a life time. Great person!!!
Maria E. (1/9/2020) When I went through my separation I found Maria. I was afraid to stand up for myself and voice my needs. Coming to see Maria helped me become assertive and stand up for what I needed legally. I don't think I could have found my strength and, most importantly, piece of mind without Maria's support.
Raf M (12/25/2019) I can't say enough positive things about Melay and her practice. I was a mess at the end of my relationship and she was very professional and has a calming soothing presence that made me instantly at ease and just made me feel like everything was going to be alright. I really needed a professional to help me through this process and I think when you are in crisis you really need to count on someone to help guide you through processes that can be overwhelming. She helped facilitate everything and her counsel was just what I needed to get through this messy process. Once it was all said and done I was very grateful and having it all be done with was such a great weight off my shoulders. I highly recommend her practice for helping you get to a place of healing and finding a new normal with minimal complications. I really don't know how else I could have gone through this process without her help and am eternally grateful for her help.
Dakota B. (11/3/2019) I now feel more grounded and have more peace of mind after working with Melay. She helped me at a difficult time.
David M. (10/28/2019) I did a bunch of sessions with Maria from 2017-2018 that were life changing for me as I dealt with post divorce parenting and struggles with being a single father etc. Maria is extremely easy to share personal feelings with and ultimately I walked away after each session feeling more confident and prepared on how to cope with my own personal issues going forward. I'd refer her to anyone and she brings such a unique perspective to life.
