About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in New Mexico, with 30 years experience in clinical work. Over time I've had specialized experience which includes women's issues, domestic abuse and power and control relationships. My practice also reflects a generalist perspective in terms of the challenges that many of us share with depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences and addictive behaviors. I enjoy working individually and in small groups that promote connection and empowerment.

I admire your willingness to explore the challenges that you've experienced and I respect your courage in moving forward. I look forward to working with you in
beginning this journey.

Maryann has been very helpful so far in only 3 sessions. She is responsive and understanding, and has adapted her therapy style to best fit my needs. I will certainly be continuing with her in the future.

Maryann is very thoughtful and skillful at circling back to the issues of your greatest concern. She validates when you're responding in a healthy manner & offers helpful and do-able suggestions when you're stuck. I'm so grateful for her support.

Am incredibly grateful for the support, advice, listening and guidance I've received during this most difficult time in the world/my life.

I have been on Better Help and working with Maryann for several months now and I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon. I feel extremely supported and I always feel like a priority to Maryann. She's always on time and ready for whatever I have to complain about, to yell about, to cry about, or to maybe not even talk at all about. She gives me silence in the moments it's needed for me to find answers that I probably already know or am in the processes of learning. She never fails to show me the other side of a problem or situation that I may or may not realize, accept, or even agree with. She always makes sure that I can contact her at any time and she will respond in a very timely manner.

I've gone to therapy and counseling before and have no trepidation when it comes to talking about my feelings. I had taken awhile off from counseling and was in a not-great place when I decided to use BetterHelp. I was close to canceling right before our first meeting and I am so SO glad I didn't. While life stuff, adulting, and the pandemic are all working in harmony to make sure I don't live my best life, Maryann makes sure I have the support and tools to cope with whatever comes my way, good and bad, and my sanity remains mostly intact thanks to her. Thank you Maryann. 10/10 recommend.

Maryann is extremely easy to talk to! She introduced me to many techniques which helped with improving my confidence and gaining control of my emotions! So not only she helped me with the problem I reached out to her to begin with, but she has also thought me skills to be able to handle life in general! I couldn't ask for a better therapist!

Maryann is incredible! Working with her felt unlike any other counseling sessions I'd ever attended. She was attentive, relatable and helped me to see things from a new, better informed perspective. Maryann definitely changed my life positively and helped give me a new outlook on what my future could be.
