Maria views therapy as a collaborative experience and a safe place where people can explore their thoughts and feelings. Maria believes that deep change and growth is experienced through a clear knowing of oneself and a healthy connection to a support system. She serves women and couples in a number of areas including relationship distress, parenting, identity development, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and life transition. Maria works from a systems and attachment perspective utilizing Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Strength Based approaches and enjoys integrating people’s faith in the work of psychotherapy. Maria is also available for consultation with churches and Christian non-profits who desire to build healthy organizations and for graduate students in the field of counseling and psychotherapy as they navigate the transition into clinical practice.
