Mari is a dynamic and informed speaker who engages the audience with her story telling ability. Her expertise in her field of Sexual Addiction and its treatment is immense. Mari delivers her words with accuracy, humor, respect and it is clear she has a deep passion for the work she does. She is a pleasure to listen to and highly skilled in her field. As a workshop presenter she comes well prepared and is available for questions and answers. Mari’s discussions provide a good mix of information, graphics, music, and some good laughs. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Mari Lee was invited to speak at our Professional Women’s Networking Group of La Canada. Our members were actively engaged throughout her speaking engagement due to Mari’s interactive style and her dynamic speaking ability. Mari presents professionally with knowledge, expertise and compassion. This not only captivated our members, it encouraged them to share openly and ask questions as she immediately established an atmosphere of comfort among our members. There is no question that our members left with insight and would welcome Mari back anytime.

You really are a great presenter and we will definitely be recommending you to other Chapters.

My first reaction to seeing Mari present was “Wow!” - I was truly impressed with how Mari balanced her training, her empathy, her professionalism, her humor and her warm humanity at the SASH conference in La Jolla, California. Mari modeled for me the meaning of an integrated therapist and gave me an affirming boost.

I called Mari and my pastor and I sat down with her and had such a wonderful experience that we decided to ask her to facilitate a workshop for couples within my parish and it was a great success! Many of our parishioners attended and I received numerous positive and outstanding remarks about Mari and her presentation of the couples workshop. It is my intention to continue these workshops on a regular basis because Mari provides the insight that the attendees are looking for. I thank Mari for her compassionate and clinical experience and look forward to our next workshop. She is an excellent speaker and comes with my highest recommendation.
— Deacon Ron Butler, Sacred Heart Parish, Covina, CA
Mari’s training and presentation style is excellent! The content was not only very informative, but interesting with lots of examples and practical strategies. The subject matter is difficult, yet Mari presented in a very clear and compassionate manner. One of the best trainings I’ve ever attended. Thank you!

Mari brings a combination of knowledge, compassion and clinical expertise to her work with sexual brokenness. As a speaker she is thoughtful, engaging and well prepared. We are blessed to have her share her expertise with our graduate students in our program each year.
— Cissy Brady-Rodgers, LMFT, Professor for Azusa Pacific University
I wholeheartedly recommend the speaking and presentation services of Mari A. Lee, MA, LMFT, CSAT! I have witnessed her work as a colleague and attended a training she provided which demonstrated her outstanding clinical work over multiple years. My conclusion? If she weren’t already a colleague and I lived in her area, I’d want to see Mari for therapy! She demonstrates an integration of high skill level, deep empathy for her clients, passion for her work, and contribution to our field as an author and educator. Truly, she is one of the best therapists I’ve known and I would refer to her constantly if she were local.
— Staci Sprout, LICSW, CSAT, Seattle, WA
Mari provides the kind of speaking and training that you always hope for when you register, but seldom receive. It was informative, inspiring, and provides practical material for working with an under served population. The presentation integrated humor, had great pacing, and included the workbook, and was fantastic. I found material that I could use immediately with my trauma clients, and found myself better assessing for trauma related to sexual addiction. I’d happily travel to see her present on other topics in the future.
— Miranda Palmer, LMFT, Seatlle, WA
After hearing Mari speak at the 2011 SASH Conference in La Jolla, CA, her presentation style motivated me to learn more about the human brain. This information came alive in her workshop and I got a sense of her therapy style as well. Mari is captivating, engaging and knowledgeable as a speaker and I would definitely attend another presentation.
— Ninoska Montero, LMFT, CSAT, Pasadena, CA
Thank you so much for your insightful, passionate and inspiring workshop yesterday. I came away feeling not only more educated about sex addiction and its impact on partners, but also a sense of connection to the group, you and the local community at large.
— Kavitha Goldowitz, M.A., CSAT, San Francisco, CA
Mari, thank you so much! Your workshop presentation was informative and delightful, and your speaking style kept me engaged throughout the entire day. I especially appreciated your straightforwardness, ethical standards and candidness.
— Sandra Berger, MA, MFT Intern, Marin County, CA
Mari’s is a fantastic speaker! In a matter of hours, participants begin to learn and use tools that work, and to have meaningful conversations that are focused on the healing and moving forward.

Mari is an amazing woman, and a gifted therapist and speaker!
