L.C.S.W. Psychotherapist

If you have been through something painful and traumatic while having difficulty making sense out of what happened, Maya will walk with you on your path to recovery from trauma. Using EMDR, while focusing on emotional expression in the context of relationships, Maya will support your healing journey to recovering yourself and your ability to cultivate joy. Trauma and painful life experiences can offer a profound opportunity to understand ourselves deeply. By openly looking into the experience of racial and gender identity, sexual preferences and the systems of oppression that inhibit our identities within the context of trauma, we can uncover what will guide us home to ourselves. Take this opportunity to transform your suffering into understanding and heal yourself.
