best therapist I've ever had
I love how warm Maria is and knowledgeable. She is very encouraging that I will be fine…she has more faith in me than I do
She listens very well and offers a lot of support and advice. I have come so far in a short period of time it’s incredible. Providing me with the coping skills and knowledge to navigate current, past and future problems. 10/10 would recommend. I have become the best version of myself with her guidance .
Showed up late to first appointment.
She’s the first therapist they matched me with and so far she’s been really good. I’ve only had two sessions with her but the next one is booked and I’m really hoping it works out :)
So far the last two sessions has been well with her. She's very patient and driven and sets a calm demeanor when you talk to her. I feel like she is well engaged with her clients. Let's see what else unravels.
One session- good interaction and clear with explanations.
I have been seeing Maria for several weeks now and find our therapy sessions very constructive. Maria is well-versed in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which she applies in our sessions, although she also has broad knowledge of other types of therapy, and a sound understanding of adult ADHD). I take comfort in Maria's holistic approach to our sessions. I am someone who benefits from structure too which Maria incorporates. I feel more in touch with myselfl/world since working with Maria. I'd like to continue this work as I know that I am gaining helpful insights and am beginning to understand what I need to regain order in life and feel happy and at peace within my mind
I love her. And no words can be described of how much I thank her to be in my life.
The best therapist... Maria's guidance helped get to the root of my issues in a matter of a few sessions. She is very understanding and full of knowledge. I am very grateful to have her as my therapist and coach. Thank you for everything and I'll keep on working on all you've helped me discover.
Mara has been very helpful
During my last four sessions. I look forward to learning more from her and moving forward in a positive way of life in more positive thinking .
I was going to therapy already when I first saw Maria. I wasn’t sure how we could add to what I was getting in my other therapy to enhance my personal life but she quickly made me feel comfortable and she found how to best mesh with me. I am now comfortable and I have a vision and direction of how her and I will work together. She encourages me to better my life in ways I did not know I could.
From the first session with Maria Arana I felt comfortable sharing about everything. She is a great listener, gives good advice and overall a great specialist. It’s the first time I seek therapy and I am happy I reached out.
