My Approach to Helping

Welcome! My name is Maris and I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #94277 supervised by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Sharon Skelton #46398. I am fully trained in a trauma treatment called Brainspotting; Brainspotting focuses on eye position and body sensation to process traumatic experience held in the body. This treatment accesses the deepest parts of the brain and bypasses the narrative of trauma that so many can find themselves stuck in. I work with adolescents, couples, and adult individuals. I value compassion, authenticity, open-mindedness, a willingness to learn from those I work with in my practice. I value creating a nonjudgmental and genuine relationship with my clients to promote safety in our sessions.

More Info About My Practice

I have been in clinical practice for three years and post-graduate for two. I am at roughly 2600 hours of the required 3000 to take the California State License Exam. I work with each client from a unique perspective and aim to improve their overall quality of life in addition to the identified goals for therapy. I seek to implement mindfulness and meditative practices into my treatment in addition to a relationship-focused environment and/or Brainspotting.

My Therapy Focus

Brainspotting is a cutting-edge trauma treatment that I have had great success with in my clinical experience. Research shows that our bodies and minds store traumatic experience in the deep primitive survival areas of the brain and the nervous system. From this perspective, we cannot "talk" our way out of traumas from our lives using the narrative part of the brain. The brain is extremely well designed to remember any danger/harm we have encountered, and when there is trauma the brain can go into overdrive; this response often leads people to other mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, or mood disorders.
