Get to Know Maya

Therapist | LCSW

My approach to therapy is meeting the client where she or he is at in their life and situation; holding their hand and walking with them through the process toward self-healing, while telling them: it’s OK, you can do this.

My Professional Background

I have been in practice for almost twenty years. I graduated with a Masters in Clinical Social Work in 2004 and continued to work for the clinic where my internship had been. I have been in group and private practice settings, seeing clients without interruption ever since. As I speak Spanish, I’ve been able to help a great deal of Hispanic immigrants and have worked on problems related to immigration, acculturation, bicultural issues, generational/cultural differences, cultural diversity, adaptation to new environments, discrimination, family reunification or separation issues, and many others. I also work very well with career, family, parenting and school related issues.

Education, Training, and Certifications

  • Bachelors with a concentration in Psychology from Hunter College
  • Masters in Social Work from New York University in 2004
  • Post graduate certificate in eating disorders and additions from the William Alanson White Institute for Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis and Psychology in 2009

Fun Facts
