Professional statement

Mary Ford is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner located in Lebanon, NH. Mary brings expertise in mindfulness, neuroscience, and medicine to help clients who suffer from anxiety. Often, clients’ anxiety is directly tied to traumatic experiences or painful memories that hold them back from being fully present in their daily lives. Clients meet with Mary because they’re tired of constantly being vigilant and reactive to the world around them, as it leaves them on edge and unable to relax. Mary helps clients overcome the stress in their lives and find a sense of balance.



Mary’s approach to therapy draws from her extensive experience and training in mindful behavior change. She is a credentialed Somatic Experience Practitioner and teaches clients how to pay attention to their bodies’ reactions to stimuli around them. She then gives clients the skills they need to regulate their physical reactions, which can then put the mind at ease. Mary is also a certified yoga teacher and brings many elements of mindfulness and meditation into her sessions with clients. When clients aim to break unhealthy habits, Mary coaches them through the steps, establishing a new, healthier habit in its place.



Mary earned a Master’s degree in Nursing from Drexel University. She also holds an MBA from Northwestern University. She enjoys using neuroscience to educate her clients about their emotional reactions to anxiety and stress, showing them that healing is possible by turning their attention inwards. She is a compassionate, down-to-earth therapist who brings kindness and empathy into each session with clients.
