Ave-Maria Lewis is a Mental Health Counselor who sees therapy as a place to enter into a season of change. She believes that therapy is a journey that people go on to better know themselves and understand the way their mind works and shape their future. While this is a trip without a travel guide, she sees her role as making sure that you don't have to go on the journey alone.
Maria’s warm and introspective nature helps her form genuine relationships with her clients that enriches the therapeutic atmosphere. Maria likes to use art and music in session in order to deepen self-expression and insight. This gives a uniquely creative twist to evidence-based practices such as Mindfulness based therapy, CBT, and DBT.
In addition to her work with adults, Maria is also particularly skilled at working with children, teens and high-conflict families.
