Hi there, I'm Maria!

Hello, my name is Maria Baghasarian, EdD, LMFT#116898. I have experience working with children, families, and adults. I have worked in school settings, including elementary, middle, high school, and university. I am also a college professor in the Psychology department.

My approach

My main theoretical approach is humanistic. However, I commonly utilize cognitive behavioral therapy methods.

My focus

I typically work with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, family dynamic issues, impulsivity, learning and motivational problems.

My communication style

I strive to provide a safe and inclusive environment in my practice. I want every client to feel safe and feel like they can share their concerns and grow in this space.

My goals for you

I like to set client driven SMART goals.

My first session with you

The first session is where we build rapport, and we explore client concerns.
