Working with Maria
Licensed Professional Counselor & Counseling Supervisor
Maria Mayo, LPC-S
My goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive environment where you can explore your emotional needs and overcome barriers that keep you from being the person you wish you were. I take an open-minded approach to the well-being of the individuals I work with by considering factors such as work life, family traditions, cultural beliefs, spirituality, and sexual identity of the individuals I serve. I offer counseling sessions for individuals (teens and adults), as well as couples counseling (regardless of marital status or sexuality), as well as family sessions (with 2 or more members). I have a down-to-earth approach, and I will work to help make therapy comfortable & encouraging for you, instilling hope in your life every session.
Be ready to be committed to your progress. Although I will be here to support you, guide you, and encourage you in a non-judgmental way during every step of your journey, I will never work harder than you do. You are the true catalyst for change in your own life. We are not able to make any guarantees in therapy, but I can assure you that the benefit you receive from therapy will match the amount of time and effort you put into the process. If you are seeking a therapist to make miracles happen *for* you, instead of *with* you, I am not the right therapist for you.
One of my main goals as a therapist is to help break the stigma of who can possibly benefit from counseling. In my practice, I often hear first time counseling clients state that they thought therapy was only for people who are "crazy." People attend counseling for many reasons: stress, relationship problems, career issues, grief, parenting guidance, substance abuse / dependence, as well as mental health concerns such as various levels of anxiety and depression.
Examples of some of the problem areas I have helped people with include:
These are just some of the issues or concerns I have worked with in helping individuals just like you! Please email me for more information. I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
