Center for Authentic Living is such an incredible facility that I can honestly say has changed my life. I have been seeing Mari for several years now and I cannot even begin to describe how truly amazing she is. She has not only helped me overcome mountains, but she has also taught me so much about myself along the way. Mari is the kind of person who never gives up on her clients. She is someone who truly does care for her clients and is there for them no matter what. Every time I see Mari, she never fails to leave me walking out with a huge smile on my face. She is the best person to talk to in times when you’re in need of a good cry, a good vent, or even just a good laugh (Mari is actually hilarious and will make you laugh at any given moment!!)Overall, I am so beyond grateful to have a role model like Mari in my life. I can faithfully say that because of her guidance and consistent support, I have learned to overcome my struggles rather than be defined by them. She has made me the person I am today and for that, I will forever be grateful for her! She truly is the best!!!! More...

Mari and the team at Center for Authentic Living truly care about the development of their patients and helping them to overcome challenges they may be facing. I have been seeing Mari for about six months and I’m learning a lot about myself and why my mind works the way that it does. The focus on Internal Family Systems and parts work is brilliant and a new method of treatment that I had not experienced before. I would highly recommend anyone check this place out for a higher level of care! More...

Dr. Mari is a dynamic practitioner who approaches therapy from an empathetic, generous, and spiritual perspective. She has been instrumental in helping me to acclimate to my move to Chicago and has already helped me to learn about and embrace more parts of myself. I look forward to working with her for a long time. More...

Mari is absolutely amazing!!! I can’t even put into words how much i love having her as my therapist, she has helped me so much and has taught me so much! I feel so blessed that I was able to find her. I feel so comfortable with her and she has helped me so much in my recovery process. When I’m having hard time, she always does a great job helping me understand better what I’m going through or why I may be feeling that way. Even when I tell the people close to me about one of my sessions, they always seem to say “Wow it sounds like you have an awesome therapist!” .... and it’s true! More...

Center for Authentic Living is truly an incredible place that I would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat. They have so much to offer and I can honestly say that they've changed my life. While seeing Mari for a few years now, I can't even begin to describe the impact she's had on me. I've had many therapists in the past but none can even compare to the kind of therapist Mari is. She brought out a side of me that I never even knew existed and has continued to amaze and inspire me by her insight and ability to always know exactly what to say.
They also have a yoga therapy group which I found extremely helpful and relaxing. It's such a calm, welcoming environment and is one of the few places that allows members to be with themselves and actually sit with their emotions.
Overall, this is an such amazing place! I honestly could not be in the place I am today without them and am beyond grateful to have had them in my life.
