Maria specializes in working with individuals who who struggle with issues of stress, anxiety (including panic attacks), and depression. She helps them find peace in the midst of their crisis so that they may begin the process of healing themselves. Only then can they ignite the fire in their heart to break free and begin the path to truly discover peace and joy. Maria also works couples and families who are multicultural, multiracial, and multi-generational. Additionally, she works with coparents after a divorce or separation.
Maria holds a M.A. in Counseling Psychology from CIIS, and B.S. in Neuroscience from UCSD. Maria's unique approach to psychotherapy is informed by her background in neuroscience and counseling psychology, as well as her meditation practice. Maria also provides diversity training to interdisciplinary professionals, including professionals in Family Courts.
Life transitions may sometimes feel like a crisis and when the tools that once worked no longer works, we may begin to feel a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. This is the moment in our lives when we must decide whether we want to continue to walk the path that no longer feels right or we must find the courage to carve a new path that is unpaved.
