About me

I am glad you found your way here let's make it worth your while! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a certified Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapist in the state of Florida. I have eleven years of experience working with children, families, adults and couples. I also work as private practitioner helping individuals and families with issues related to depression, anxiety, life changes, coping with grief and self-esteem issues. I am a trained systemic therapist who see individuals as part of a system. Your current issues may have a lot to do with the system you are or were part of. Trauma, dysfunctions in the family, stress and conflicts don't happen in a vacuum they happen within the framework of systems. Taking a closer look at that system to understand context and patterns is crucial in gaining self-awareness and growth. If you are able to figure out the WHY and HOW, you will gain insight thus be able to identify tools to help manage or resolve the issues that brought you to therapy. My approach to therapy is to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment conducive for self-discovery and growth. I encourage an atmosphere of honesty, compassion and accountability. I help clients identify and use their strengths to occupy the driver's seat in their own lives. My personal goal for my clients is that even if we are unsuccessful in finding solutions to your issues, you can leave therapy with renewed sense of self and more empowered than when you started.

Mariama is an authentic listener and true professional. I have embraced her expertise and breakthroughs are happening. My only regret is that I didn't make an appointment with Mariama sooner!

I've worked with Mariama for the last year and she has helped me get so much confidence and self-esteem, helping me through difficult times. She is compassionate and patient and a great listener, giving tasks and amazing guidance where needed. Highly recommend setting up a session with Mariama to find out for yourself!

She was so attentive and kind, never making me feel unsafe or judged. She’s very insightful and helped me make realizations that I could not come about on my own.
