Mary understands your needs. She is a great listener who can pick up on the nuances of your statements and how they reflect your mental model. I like that sessions don’t have to be intense but they feel productive. She is friendly and approachable but packs a good punch when it comes to therapy.

Thank you for visiting my profile ! I'd like to tell you a bit about my background and my practice. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Northern Arizona University, and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Southern California. I commissioned into the Navy in 2012, after completing an internship with the Department of Defense onboard Naval Medical Center San Diego. I completed my post-graduate residency in 2014 at Naval Medical Center San Diego, working in medical social work and in adult outpatient mental health at Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program Point Loma, California. I also worked at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in adult outpatient mental health in Aviation Medicine. I am a Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work specialized in treating anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder with a humanist existential background and cognitive behavioral therapy modalities. I continue to serve in the Navy Reserve as a Lieutenant in the Medical Services Corps. I enjoy working with diverse populations and a wide range of mood or other psychological disorders, and enjoy working on general improved wellness and better managing stress. I also have unique experience in working in Equal Opportunity and as a Transition Assistance Officer for service members undergoing gender confirmation surgeries. If you have any questions about my being a good fit for your goals, please reach out and let's chat!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
