About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey with 28 years of professional work experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Additionally, I was awarded a Fellowship at New York University to work with the chronically mentally ill. My years of experience in a hospital setting has sharpened my skills in supporting those with chronic illness, psychiatric issues, and end of life issues. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with grief and loss, eating disorders, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! Together we can strive to help improve your quality of life, build confidence and enhance your inner peace. I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Maria Patania. 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.

Even though it’s only been a couple sessions so far I greatly appreciate her feedback and direct but gentle manner guiding me through better ways to handle my emotions.
