Mary is the author of the newly released book, Conscious Eating, which describes how someone can transcend their up and down cycle of dieting and overeating by using a new, innovative method of change called Voice Dialogue. With this technique, one can 1) meet and talk from the specific inner selves that keep them stuck, 2) discover new inner selves to help create a dynamic of change, and 3) develop an Aware Ego process to manage the energetic aliveness and expanded choices that this inner work creates.
Mary is a licensed psychotherapist in Northern California who works with adults and couples. In addition, she is a highly experienced teacher and facilitator of the Voice Dialogue method. She has been practicing Voice Dialogue, professionally and personally, since 1994, trained with the creators of Voice Dialogue, Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, and is considered one of their senior teachers. She has another website : www.MaryDisharoon.com.
Mary is 59, married to her husband, Rob, for 37 years, and the mother of three adult children. She is a warm and engaging woman who is personally enlivened by the creative process of Voice Dialogue. She likes helping people grow into a fuller experience of who they are and helping couples learn how to consciously connect. Mary finds Voice Dialogue to be an extremely effective tool for change and growth. Results come quickly because the different inner selves get a chance to speak for themselves about what they want and need. Mary invites you to try Voice Dialogue because it can change your life!
