About Me

Welcome to Betterhelp! I am glad you decided to seek help. My name is Maria Maier. It would be my pleasure to work with you. I have worked with clients on many kinds of issues ranging from: anxiety, depression, life changes, LGBT issues, career decisions, marital issues, separation, and divorce as well as substance abuse.
I have a master’s degree in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Washington and am a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW). I have received DOT certification as a Substance Abuse Professional. I am licensed with the state of Washington. My license number is LW00006634. I have been providing individual, and group therapy since 1986.
My goal is to work in partnership with you to reach your goals. I am an active participant in helping you explore your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Rational Emotive Therapy and Client Centered Therapy. You and I decide together what length of therapy and what goals you would like to tackle. My style is to be an active participant in working with you. I will listen, make suggestions, and use all the tools I have to help you reach your goals.
Outside of my counseling work I have a Masters in Chinese Medicine and practice, meditation, and Qi Gong. I am physically active and love to spend time with my family and pets. I also enjoy cooking and gardening.
