Mariam is passionate about helping couples who feel emotionally disconnected from each other in their marriages and find themselves living in hurt and tension, not knowing how to deal with addictions, trauma, history of affairs, and struggling to communicate. In addition, Mariam enjoys working with women (married and single) who feel stuck with where they are at in life, and are experiencing anxiety, life transitions, depression, trauma, relationship strains, spiritual crisis and other life issues. She also does pre-engagement and pre-marital counseling.
