About me

Are you a working professional who is just feeling the stressors of work and everyday life? It’s hard to be able to juggle it all and still somehow try to find time for yourself. Sometimes life just feels like a lot, bad day at work, a fight with a partner or loved one, difficult day with the kids, a triggered emotion that came out of nowhere, or just not enough time in the day to get everything done.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over fifteen years of experience in the field. I work with adults who have difficulty in their day-to-day life, including work stress, motherhood, burn out, and relationship issues. I also incorporate trauma and inner child work.

Let’s sit down together and sort it all out. I’m a non-judgmental ear to listen, a sounding board to bounce ideas off, and a safe space for you to have a moment to just be.

I'm really enjoying my sessions with Maria. We're only 3 weeks in but I already feel like she's going to help me a lot. She's extremely encouraging and it really feels like I have someone in my corner.

She's sweet and attentive. I've been able to work through the issues I wasn't to work on with relative ease. Not once did I feel judged during any of of sessions.

Dr. Mir is the second counselor I have worked with on BH and I am grateful to have found her. I appreciate how well she tracks progress towards our goals during our sessions and remembers the details of our conversations. She provides worksheets and offers a range of support opportunities that are tangible and valuable. She is responsive and reliable. I would highly recommend working with her!

Maria has helped me gain self confidence in myself and deal with a lot of my anxiety. I feel like she really listens in order to get to the heart of the problem and helps you grow by guiding you from there. I originally started seeing her due to a break up and I was uncomfortable being single and alone. Now I feel like I can be on my own two feet. She's helping me work on multiple facets of my life. I absolutely recommend her.
