Maya Wellness Therapy is a psychotherapy practice focused on women's mental health and supporting LGBTQ parents and families. Life in the Bay Area is challenging and the additional stress associated with being LGBTQ, a woman, pregnancy, parenting or all of the above can push it over the edge. Therapy can support you in cultivating a sense of well-being and balance in your life as well as help you overcome specific mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety and trauma.

I have 25 years of experience with extensive focus on the gender specific mental health needs of women. I specialize in addressing trauma, parent/child relationships, perinatal and infant mental health and LGBTQ family issues. My work is rooted in CBT, attachment theory, feminism, neuro-psychology and the impact of trauma on brain development.

Trust, safety and confidentiality in a therapeutic relationship is essential. The way you feel about that relationship is a key factor in therapy outcomes. I provide therapy in a non-judgmental manner and I use compassion, intelligence and occasionally humor (laughing in the face of our fear can be healing) to forge an empowering alliance with my clients.

Kathy Brady's Groups

Women's Trauma Healing Group

A small, 12-week group for women struggling with the effects of trauma including sexual, physical and/or emotional abuse, neglect, assault and domestic violence. Trauma can interfere with relationships and day-to-day functioning while giving rise to many negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors including alcohol and substance use. We use principles of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and Mindfulness to support changing the thoughts, feelings and behaviors getting in the way of living the life you want. Rather than opening up the details of your past, we will focus on the present and how to feel ok right now.
