Licensed Professional Counselor & Counseling Supervisor
14785 Preston Road #550 . Dallas, TX 75254
Hello and welcome! My name is Maria Mayo, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Clinical Counseling Supervisor in the state of Texas. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin and earned a Master's degree in Professional Counseling from Argosy University Dallas. I also completed all Doctoral coursework necessary for a Doctorate in Counseling Psychology at Argosy University and am currently in the phase often referred to as "ABD" (all but dissertation). I completed the liscensure requirements to provide counseling services as well as supervision and mentoring services to counseling interns in the state of Texas.
I have experience working with teens in the Denton, Texas school district, and enjoyed every moment working with so-called "difficult" or "problem" teens. I also have several years experience working with very low-income, or no-income, adults with substance abuse and/or mental health problems at Homeward Bound Inc. in Oak Cliff Texas. I served as the Manager of the outpatient department at Homeward Bound, where I supervised various therapists, substance abuse counselors, and interns. I have worked with probation, parole, CPS, and self-referral clients. I enjoy helping a wide-variety of clients, cultures, and just people in general. Diversity is very important to me both personally as well as professionally.
My office is conveniently located near several major highways and is a few blocks from the Galleria Mall. Formerly located in the Center for Family Development suite, I am now located on Preston Road, between Spring Valley and Beltline. I accept insurance payments (please see the "Fees and Payments" page) and I am an out-of-network provider for many other insurance companies. I am currently accepting new clients and have appointment slots at various times Monday - Friday. I have a passion for helping people and hope to be of assistance to you in reaching your goal of living the life you want! Call me today to schedule an appointment!
