MARIA DIAZ, LMHC, LPC, EMDR Certified Therapist
My values as a therapist are held on the belief that decisions should be shared and that therapy is collaborative. Clients are empowered to overcome obstacles that have interfered with living a well meaningful life. I incorporate evidence-based practices from a trauma-informed and person centered perspective.
My Approach as a Therapist:
My approach is tailored to meet the diversity of each individual client. My ideal client is motivated to change and prepared to do the work. As an ally I use my professional expertise to help clients accomplish their self identified goals.
I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York, New Jersey and Florida. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, a trauma focused approach. As an EMDR therapist I assume that unhealed trauma is playing a major role in presenting issues and I work with my clients to heal unresolved trauma. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Strategies and other evidence based practices.
I specialize in working with adults who have experienced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), C-PTSD, Childhood trauma, Anxiety, Depression, difficulty adjusting to a life altering event and other circumstances that require a safe non-judgmental approach.
