About me

Hey there! I'm thrilled you've stopped by. I'm Mariah and I'm not just your average therapist – I'm your partner in growth, your confidant in times of uncertainty, and your biggest cheerleader on your journey to well-being.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I've spent years immersing myself in the world of therapy, but my approach is anything but clinical. I believe in the power of human connection, and I'm all about creating a space where you feel seen, heard, and truly understood.

My therapy style? Picture your favorite cozy sweater – warm, inviting, and oh-so-comforting. I'm here to meet you where you are, whether you're riding the highs of life or weathering the storm of uncertainty.

With a background spanning various settings, from bustling agencies to quiet residential homes, I've had the privilege of walking alongside individuals, couples, and families through their toughest moments. From anxiety to relationship struggles, no challenge is too big – or too small – for us to tackle together.

But here's the thing: therapy isn't just about solving problems. It's about embracing growth, fostering resilience, and rediscovering joy in the everyday moments. And that's exactly what we'll do together.

So, whether you're feeling a bit lost in the chaos of life or simply seeking a safe space to explore who you are and where you're headed, I'm here to help. Let's embark on this journey together – one step at a time, with compassion, humor, and a whole lot of heart.
