Leading people on the path to discover hope, meaning & purpose
Welcome to Maria Diaz, LMHC!
*****Update: Nothing is more important to me than your health and wellness. As we all continue to be impacted by COVID-19, it's important to recognize our responsibility in following the CDC guidelines. At this time I am only offering Telehealth appointments until further notice.******
My goal as a therapist is to empower you through the therapeutic process by promoting your mental health and well being. I strive to create a therapeutic alliance where you feel safe and comfortable while entrusting me as your therapist. I understand that life can be difficult and setbacks can be challenging, with the right support I believe you can get through this.
I Love helping people live their full potential by leading them on the path to discover hope, meaning and purpose.
MARIA DIAZ, LMHC
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. I use various evidenced based approaches borrowed and adapted to help my clients. I am culturally sensitive and understand that client's needs vary. 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 trained 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), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, Person Centered Therapy, Mindfulness and other evidence based practices.
I specialize in working with adults who have experienced Complex Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, Depression, difficulty with adjusting to a life altering event and other circumstances that require a safe non judgmental approach.
A Little About me:
In 2009 I graduated with my Masters in Counseling, after graduating I decided to take the opportunity to enhance my skills through various direct service and leadership roles. In 2016 I returned to school and earned an Advanced Certificate of Mental Health Counseling, while I continued evolving as a Mental Health Professional.
I have been helping people create a brighter future for over 15 years. I’ve held various roles as a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP) and I also, currently, hold the position as a Clinical Director with a non for profit organization.
"There is only one word to describe Maria and that's PHENOMENAL!!! I started to see Maria in February of of 2020 and from the moment I met her she was very comforting and kind towards me. She immediately demonstrated her expertise in a delightful manner that made me feel comfortable and content to discuss personal matters. Her positivity is infectious to all around her. The consistent dedication that she possesses to her clients is exceptionally loyal and trustworthy. I truly appreciate everything that she does as it inspires me to be a better me."
“ I have known Maria professionally for well over a decade. Maria is the best type of clinician - intelligent and modality focused but deeply feeling and connects to people on the most human level. Maria is a consummate professional. I’ve never seen her doing less than her best work, even when she thinks no one is looking.”
