Dr. Marie A. Mastria, PHD, CLC, PCC, the creator of Commuter-Assist, is a psychologist who has been consulting and coaching for many years. When she moved an hour and a half out of the New York metropolitan area, she began to notice something unusual. At her son’s baseball games, she saw only one parent families. Except for the coaches and one or two fathers, only mothers were with their children. Strange, she thought, so many divorced families?!?
No, not really. As she became familiar with the women, she found that they did have husbands. Only thing was, they were on the road during games. You see, traveling to work meant they could not be involved in their children’s activities during the week. There is more to this story but, for now, suffice to say that Dr. Marie Mastria recognized there may be a problem here that needed assistance to right itself. Research showed that, indeed, there was a problem. And Dr. Mastria, through Commuter-Assist, offers the solution.
