About Me

As hard as we try, sometimes it's not possible to move beyond trauma, bad relationships or grief without the right support. You might find yourself not sleeping or feeling anxious and depressed. You might have trouble with low confidence or self-judgment. This can seep into other areas of your life, such as relationships or how you feel about your weight or appearance. I help people who are overwhelmed by life but are ready to heal and make changes for the future. Perhaps it’s time for you to create a life full of joy, fulfillment, purpose and self-love.

I’m committed to helping you decrease symptoms, while also building long-lasting skills. I offer effective techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), depending on your needs. I also take a new approach to weight, believing that you can learn to be healthy and happy at any size.

Others describe me as nonjudgmental, supportive and cheerful. My goal is to help you achieve yours, whatever they may be. I’ve had clients who’ve gone back to school, gotten promotions and changed their outlook on life. You can learn to believe in yourself and feel good about the future. Contact me to set up a free consultation and begin your journey.

Maricruz is good at analyzing my needs and addressing problems. She is very frank and to the point. She has been a no-nonsense therapist and has helped me with my concerns so far. Talking to her has been helpful along this journey.

I am so happy I found Maricruz. I put off getting therapy for a long time because I doubted I could find a therapist that would be helpful and understanding. Maricruze is both those things, and more. My life is better because of our sessions. Thank you!

Maricruz is incredible. Talking to her was the first time in my life that I thought someone actually understood me. She is kind, thoughtful, and most of all - makes me feel comfortable to be me. As a man approaching 40 who has never seen a therapist - if I knew it would feel the way it does when talking to Maricruz, I’d have been doing it my whole life.

Mari has been such a wonderful asset to my life - she has been helping me take small steps to becoming the person that I am meant to be. She is kind, understanding, an active listener, and most importantly she doesn't sugar coat anything - this is what has been helping me the most. Sometimes a dose of reality is exactly what you need and she has been allowing me to explore different methods of thinking which have shifted my perspective in a more positive way and allowing me to calm down a lot of anxiety and stress that I have been carrying.
