Hi! My name is Maria. I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in Minnesota with over 7 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, adjustments in life, and wide ranges of trauma.

I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Maria is such a kind and amazing person. She has helped me think logically through extremely difficult situations, and after my conversations with her, I feel so much more at ease. She has been my therapist for months now and I can't recommend her enough. I've seen so much growth in myself through my sessions with her!

She is amazing! After 5 min of taking to her I felt completely comfortable with telling her my story. She really listens and picks up on the things you are and are not saying. She challenges me and keeps me accountable with my goals!!
