About me

I am licensed in Illinois with 8 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with depression, coping with grief and loss as well as other areas. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.

I take a kind and interactive approach with my clients, meeting them where they are in their lives. I believe that only you can be the expert of your own life. My style is generally a combined undertaking of cognitive-behavioral, acceptance and commitment therapies as well as some psychodynamic therapy.

It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Maria Daly. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I have had a few sessions with Maria now and I am already feeling like she was such a good match for me. She’s friendly but not fake and this is a huge deal for me. She is real with me and gets me to see things I’ve never seen before. She really hears me and helps me focus on root causes and important things. In just a few sessions I feel like I’ve made more progress than with any of my previous therapists. I love that she is professional but also down to earth and I don’t feel like just a number to her she makes me feel listened to and genuinely helps. I’m very happy so far!
