Maria is a clinical psychologist and seminar leader of national renown, who has worked in the intersection of psychology and spirituality for more than twenty years. Trained at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and New England Deaconess Mind/Body Medicine Institute, her work has centered predominantly on support of children and adults facing terminal illness; offering them and the staff who care for them tools for resilience, stress management, and the creation of meaning in the presence of suffering.
As a lecturer, Maria has been invited to keynote conferences for wellness organizations, businesses, hospitals, hospices, and religious and philanthropic institutions around the country. A master storyteller, her lectures and workshops combine powerful and moving anecdotes with research to bring an audience to the place we all most want to be: moved to positive sustainable change within the lives we are already living. She is author of Every Day Counts: Lessons in Love, Faith, and Resilience from Children Facing Illness, available in our Bookstore and her most recently published book is titled A Short Course in Happiness After Loss (And Other Dark, Difficult Times).
