Testimonials from Clients and Mental Health Professionals
“I went to see Mary after another therapist abruptly terminated my treatment; I walked into her office feeling like a lost cause, like I didn’t matter — hopeless. I was not easy to work with in those early months, but Mary insisted that she could handle my pain and my problems and that she could help me find my way to a life of fullness and joy. Over time, I started to let down my defenses down and eventually developed a healthy attachment and profound trust in Mary. She explained why my feelings and thoughts made sense, given my experience and particular mental health challenges. She made me feel like I was normal, not crazy, not a lost cause. She made me feel accepted and good enough. My self-worth improved, and I started to believe that I could have dreams and goals. Having a child was the dream I held most dear, and because of Mary, I got healthy enough for my dream to become a reality. I am a mother now, with a second child on the way. I could not have achieved this transformation without Mary’s guidance. She believed in me and persevered with me, and I now have the life of fullness and joy that she told me was possible.”
“I would highly recommend Dr Faucette to anyone looking to restore balance and sobriety to their lives. I had been in and out of mental institutions and jail, and thought I would never live a life worth living again. Suicide seemed like my only solution. Dr Faucette saved me from this fate. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Dr Faucette, I would not be where I am today. I am now five years sober, gainfully employed, debt free, and living a life I could never have imagined. I am very fortunate to have been under the care of Dr Faucette and owe her a huge debt of gratitude.”
“Mary was the only therapist who encouraged me to stick with my sessions and that was when I saw and felt real growth and change begin with my depression and anxiety. I would recommend Dr Faucette to anyone and cannot say enough good things about her. I had never felt like I could be so open with a therapist until her. She offers constructive, supportive, and professional advice. I miss her every day!”
"I have referred many people to Dr Faucette for depression, anxiety, and addiction issues. It would be difficult to find a practitioner that is more accomplished or has greater facility in these areas. More important than her expertise; however, is the caring and the connection that she brings to her clients."

"I saw Dr. Faucette for several years, and my experience was wonderful. With my previous therapists, I did not make the kind of progress that I made with Dr Faucette. She is extremely flexible and is available 24/7 for emergency situations. She is easy to talk to and has taught me many skills to combat my substance abuse, anxiety, and depression. I could not recommend her more highly."
"I have known Mary since she was a psychology intern at McLean Hospital in 1998-1999. I found Mary to be exceptionally hardworking, intelligent, committed to her patients, and an excellent member of the treatment team who possesses a full repertoire of outstanding clinical skills. In short, Mary is an especially well trained and experienced psychologist who possesses the ideal disposition to work with the most diagnostically complicated patients."

“ I have known Dr. Faucette for over twenty-five years. I starting seeing her at the lowest point in my life; I was in prison serving a life sentence for the murder of my abusive husband. I had absolutely no self-esteem or self-worth. Through intensive therapy with Dr Faucette, I began to change. My thinking changed, and my self-esteem improved. I learned that I always have a choice in every thing I do. It was freedom that I had never had before. Today, I am a very strong, independent woman, all because of Dr Mary Faucette.”
“Dr Faucette possesses many characteristics that distinguish her as a stellar psychologist. In addition to being highly educated, knowledgable, and experienced in her areas of expertise, Dr. Faucette is an excellent communicator and a very strong advocate for her patients. She is a confident decision maker who demonstrates great commitment to her clients as well as her colleagues. She is an intelligent leader who has a talent for bringing out the best in others, and her patients and co-workers have found her to be motivated, insightful, and personable.”
