MARY TOPOLINSKI has been there.  She's walked in your shoes.  Or at least in shoes very similar to yours! She's walked this difficult road alone for too long and found answers to cope from a place of health and strength. And she found her people! Her experiences, combined with extensive training and reliable research, has lead Mary to create The Pathways to Hope, Help and Healing for you and your family. 


Mary's greatest passion is to help the hurting, especially parents.  She spent a year in training, practice and evaluating to became a certified coach for the sole reason of helping parents like you.  If you're still reading this, maybe you're a hurting parent.  If so, she is offering individual and group coaching to help you find hope for your journey and help for your family!  Allow her to take you by the hand and walk you on the pathway of healing.  Isn't it time to get the strategies, support and community that you desire and deserve?  What's waiting for you is practical help, an experienced mentor who can relate, and encouragement to find the strength you need.  


You are no longer alone!
