More About the Author
Dr. Mary Ann Massey was born in Queens, NY many decades ago.Over time she lived (and/or went to school)in Syracuse, NY, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and Williamsburg, VA. She's a licensed marriage and family therapist at two locations: Williamsburg and Louisa County on Lake Anna, Virginia. She is a national speaker on personal and spiritual growth issues in Christian and Catholic Christian churches. Dr. Massey's programs focused for many years on supporting separated and divorced men and women who struggle to rebuild their lives and on couples in crisis also struggling to rebuild their lives. In 1999 she added women's retreats to her offerings, traveling (by invitation) to many states, and Canada to deliver day-long programs. By 2010, Dr. Massey's second book, Aging is a Family Affair, How to Prepare for Tomorrow's Difficult Caregiving Conversations - Today, was published. Born out of tragedy in her own family that drew her attention to aging issues, professional care, sibling decisions and so much more, the book grew through stories that others shared about family. It has added a new and exciting dimension to her speaking engagements. These days, Dr. Massey tells lots of warm family stories in her programs, addressing family communications, changing demographic statistics, and boldly addressing the hard topics that families tend to cover up until the last minute. Where, might you ask? Wherever and whenever she is asked. This is her new passion. Webinars are becoming a new delivery method for all these programs.
