Client Review

I write in praise of miraculous results I achieved in only a few months under the care of Mari Craig.  Craig gave me a variety of positive, easy, tools and techniques to change my core beliefs from pessimism to optimism.  She assisted me in escaping anxiety; depression; self doubt; internal negative dialogue; disappointment; and, sometimes, the inability to engage life to leap into and sustain pride, love, joy, productivity, engagement, success, and even weight loss.  We began the journey with exercises in her remarkable book: Awaken the Power Within You By Getting Out of Your Own Way. I wish I'd found her years ago.
