About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker/licensed psychotherapist with 31 years of experience helping clients address issues that are standing in the way of them becoming a better version of themselves. I am licensed in the states of Florida and North Carolina. My experience as a psychotherapist has been with individuals of all ages, a broad range of issues and diverse cultural, ethnic, sexual orientation and spiritual backgrounds. My areas of focus are: helping the individual manage their response to stress in a healthier manner so the stress does not manage you, providing education and skills to cope more effectively with anxiety and/or depression, dealing with addictive behaviors, relationship issues, increasing personal empowerment over the consequences of trauma and abuse and improving self esteem/self confidence and self worth. My guiding principles as a psychotherapist are: 1) Everyone deserves to be treated with respect, dignity and compassion. 2) Seeking therapy is a very courageous act. 3) It is the therapist's responsibility to earn the individual's trust. 4) Mutual respect and collaboration between the therapist and the client make it possible for positive change to happen. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Congratulations on taking this brave and important first step on the road to a better you!
Please note: I prefer to provide therapy in video. It has been my experience that is the most beneficial.

Maritza has been very helpful. I've worked with a therapist long term and felt like I wasn't getting objective advice anymore. I had certain, specific events I wanted to work through from long ago. Maritza was able to provide poignant, practical advice. I felt like I got more valuable feedback in 4 weeks than I have in several years. I am grateful to Maritza and the support she gave. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
