Attached Therapy

Maria

Clinical Therapist (LCPC-C)

Meet Maria. I am a clinical therapist in Portland, Maine seeing individuals and couples virtually and in-person. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Family and Child Studies from Montclair State University and my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marshall University. I emphasize the importance of trust and therapeutic alliance with my clients and have particular interest in individuals and couples who struggle with communication, emotional regulation, intimacy, vulnerability, trauma, attachment, and self-awareness.

My goal in therapy is to navigate and understand your authenticity through non-judgmental connection and psychodynamic exploration. I work from a person-centered perspective to take a deeper look at what is shameful, oppressed, invalidated, or simply no longer working for you. With an eclectic approach, I collaborate openly with my clients to meet the goals of treatment. I am sex positive, gender/queer affirming, and open to discussion around all relationships and independent personal experiences. In addition to my work as a therapist, I am a painter and a writer.

Whether you are hoping to mend or improve an existing relationship, explore conscious uncoupling, heal from emotional wounds, manage behaviors that you are ready to change, or simply seek space and validation, I would be happy to connect. Please contact me with interest in a free 15 minute consultation where we can discuss scheduling, cost, and I can answer any questions or concerns. Thank you for your trust!
