Maria is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate with 4 years of experience providing mental health and spiritual care in a variety of healthcare settings, ranging from the NICU to dementia care. Throughout these experiences she has worked with people from all different life stages and holds a special care and passion for new parents and caregivers.
In her recent work as a pediatric oncology social worker and pediatric chaplain, Maria supported children and families through the many emotions and challenges that accompany illness, trauma, loss, and healing. Maria is excited to transition from inpatient to outpatient care where she can create a safe, trusting space for continued health and growth.
With her dual training in clinical social work and healthcare chaplaincy, Maria offers holistic care tailored to meet the needs and goals of each client. She works from a person-centered, strengths-based approach and draws from numerous therapeutic modalities. At the heart of her care is compassion, warmth, a touch of humor, and deep belief in the hope and resilience that can persist in even the most difficult of times.
Navigating the complexities of parenting, feelings of anxiety or depression, and persistent pain of grief is hard and often lonely. Maria is committed to helping others feel seen and heard, find symptom relief, and foster lives of greater connection, authenticity, and joy.
