Maia understands that placing one’s trust in a stranger with the most difficult and intimate parts of one’s life can be daunting and uncomfortable. Therefore, her aim as a therapist is to provide a nonjudgmental and inviting space where clients feel safe, accepted, seen, and heard through the expression of empathy and unconditional positive regard. She believes in the restorative power of the therapeutic alliance and therefore focuses on building a trusting relationship to encourage exploration, processing, learning, skill-building, and healing, thereby empowering clients to gain insight, self-awareness, and meaning in order to live their most fulfilling lives. Maia is passionate about her work and is honored to accompany and support you on your journey to becoming your best, most authentic self.
