Maria T. McCoy, M.A., LMFT

About me...

Hi, I'm Maria! 


I'm passionate about helping clients move successfully through life challenges such as leaving a job, marital conflicts, dating drama, aging parents, or issues with a mentally unstable or addicted family member, just to name a few! I can help you find your true voice and get to the heart of the issues quickly!

Utilizing a holistic framework (body, mind & spirit) plus 25 years of experience in corporate America, I help business professionals heal their relationships and live each day with meaning and purpose.

My clinical experience includes psychiatric hospital settings where I worked with teachers, artists, entertainment industry professionals, military vets, active military service members, law enforcement officers, homeless folks, high functioning professionals, and more.


I am conventionally trained so my holistic perspective came a bit later, in the last 5 years. I enjoy partnering with my clients, and love the work of helping them heal holistically...body, mind and spirit.
