Hello I am Maureen. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience working as a Mental Health Counselor as well as a social work educator. My intention is to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment to address the concerns you may be experiencing that is getting in the way of living life the way that is most beneficial to you. I specialize in helping to develop and learn coping skills that will help to decrease anxiety, stress, depression. I primarily work with older adolescents, from various different backgrounds. I have worked extensively with both military-connected and civilian adolescents to help process trauma and abuse, work through various stressors, as well as addiction and sobriety.
Life happens and it gets in the way. There are many times when you may feel stuck in the highs and lows, and unsure of if you are sinking or swimming. Perhaps your life circumstances are a result of relationship concerns, addiction, past trauma, anxiety or living with negativity. These can create barriers to you achieving your goals, while potentially impacting both your health and well-being. I believe that by taking this step in seeking help you are interested in moving forward. My role is to help you on your journey.

Maureen helps me to understand my own thoughts and motivations. She listens to the details and specific context of my situation, (and remembers them in later sessions!) and offers guidance to help me find my way through. She has helped me be more focused and less insecure and is helping me feel better about my future.
Very pleased with Maureen's performance to date.
Maureen listens without judgement and guides me to finding solutions that work for my growth and self care. She is the empathetic mirror that allows me to see my situations with a new perspective, while gently offering validation of my experience. I am so grateful for the tools I have continued to gain and the progress I am continuing to make as we tackle each new hurdle together.
She is a fantastic listener and advisor.
Maureen is a great resource for my partner and I. She has a plethora of experience to pull from and provides us with great advice. She also listens to us, as both a couple and individuals, and supports us in ways we didn't even know we needed. Definitely would recommend her, she is great!
I’m a pain in the ass. Maureen has become a trusted human voice that is a friend as much as a therapist. She listens. Gently offers insight & perspectives I hadn’t considered while never appearing to have an agenda outside our working together to seek understanding. I respect her professionally, and admire her personally. Two hearts up.
Maureen has been invaluable during my life transitions and stresses.
Continually great, every week
Maureen has been an excellent counselor. I look forward to continuing our journey together.
Maureen is very kind, she replies fast.
Maureen is extremely helpful in working through any issue or topic no matter how big or small. I feel like we always have tangible goals and progress to work on. There is no pressure, but the door is always open. Through counseling with Maureen I have made multiple realizations about how or why my anxiety happens that I would have never realized otherwise. It has had a major positive impact on my physical and mental health.
I highly recommend Maureen Macias as a therapist. She has been great to work with and I value her expertise!
