Serving the La Grange Location
Hi! My name is Maria. I am a Certified Social Worker. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults who struggle with a wide variety of mental health challenges, including substance use, anxiety, depression, and/or trauma.
Life is beautiful but it can be very difficult at times, especially when it comes to things that we don’t have control over. Seeking support for those life challenges can help you learn how to overcome and manage those hurdles. Sometimes it helps to view these challenges as opportunities and look for ways to turn lemons into lemonade.
I know how important it is to have someone to walk along with you in a judgment-free zone so that life stressors can be processed. Modalities I use while working with clients include Strengths Based Perspective, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
A bit about me: I have been a dedicated and proud army wife for 17 ½ years. I enjoy going with my husband and my twin boys on an annual military trip to Wisconsin. I’m a dedicated football mom, and also at times a basketball coach. When I have free time, I watch television shows like She Hulk Attorney at Law, Wanda Vision, Cobra Kai, and the Walking Dead.
