About me

I am Maria Crabtree a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I also provide supervision for LPCA's on their journey to be fully licensed. I have over 10 years of clinical counseling experiences. I have worked with clients with a wide range from age 4 to 70 with a variety of issues. I have helped individuals cope with their depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, ADHD, GAD, PTSD, bipolar, personality disorder, est. I also started my career as a Trauma Recovery Therapist in a rape crisis center solely working with adult victims of rape/sexual assault and domestic violence.

My counseling style is direct and empathetic. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, existential and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I also enjoy using the holistic approach in counseling to connect the body as one working vessel in all areas of the mind, body, and soul.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Maria is so easy to talk to and has provided me several resources to help with my anxiety. I feel so much better about myself after each session.

Maria has been an absolute joy in my life. I feel extremely heard and cared about whenever we speak. She is super sweet and very good at deciphering and targeting main ideas or critical insights even when I offload a ridiculous amount. She asks questions that provoke thought and has really helped me reach a place where I am far more content with myself than I used to be. She's helped me accept happiness and be more present with who I am, and she's been an invaluable help despite our short association, I am so grateful to have met her!

Maria is personable, patient and offers useful resources. She is a very good listener who brings me back from my tangents yet I work at my own pace. I feel listened to and more understood through our work together. She is also honest, encouraging and refreshingly modern in her views about women and our societal roles and struggles. I feel comfortable exploring and healing with Maria and after several sessions, I feel that I am progressing in building/reasserting my authentic sense of self and worth.

She’s great! Very attentive, she re-affirms and actually listens to what you are saying. Great session.

Maria has been a great resource. I have told her my feelings and she has respected me and gave me little assignments to help me with my feelings and anxiety.
