"Maria felt so accurate with my reading. It was the specific detail that she was able to share. I truly felt I was in the presence of matakite. Nga mihi."

- Aroha James

“For over 18-months I had been feeling lost, without much direction, without joy - essentially a mid-life crisis! Maria did incredible work with me which helped me take back control. Now I wake up each day looking forward to the future and feeling equipped.”
