Maria T. McCoy, LMFT

​About Me

​You can heal. I can help you.

 

If you are ready to feel better, I am here to help! I provide the necessary structure and support so you can heal (body, mind, spirit) and thrive in your life like never before.

I see business professionals, business owners, medical professionals, attorneys, teachers, musicians, entertainment industry pros, active military service members, military vets, stay-at-home moms, and other therapists, just to name a few.

I am conventionally trained in the "medical model" so my holistic perspective came a bit later, in the last 5 years. I enjoy partnering with clients and getting to the "root cause" of issues and identify what it takes to effectively resolve them.
