Nice to meet you. I'm Maria Pistorio, LPC, NCC. Let's work together to achieve your goals.
GET TO KNOW ME
Hi! I'm Maria and I’m here to help you navigate difficult situations and overcome traumatic experiences in your life. I work with both parents and children to address their mental health challenges.
As a therapist specializing in EMDR, PCIT, and CBT, I love using evidence-based treatment to help my clients, ensuring that my approach has been proven effective and delivers real results.
WHAT I DO
I offer a range of evidence-based treatments, depending on your specific conditions, problem areas, and goals for your child and your family. Among these treatments are:
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
PCIT Clinician Training
I'm extremely happy to offer EMDR therapy to my suite of services. EMDR is incredibly effective at treating trauma response, anxiety, and anger management, among other mental health diagnoses. You can read about my approach to EMDR therapy here.
Additionally, I also work closely with parents and coach them on how to improve negative behaviors and establish better communication between their child. If you wish to have a better relationship with your child and be there to support them in their difficult times, let’s work together.
My unwavering commitment is to prioritize your mental and emotional well-being above everything else. I understand that asking for professional help can be a vulnerable and courageous step, and I am deeply honored that you have chosen me to accompany you on your journey to healing and growth.
I approach each client with genuine empathy and understanding, and most of all, free from judgment. I know that life can present us with a myriad of challenges, and I am here to listen to and understand your story with compassion and without bias. Your feelings are valid and your experiences matter, and rest assured that our telehealth therapy sessions are a safe and confidential space where you can express your thoughts and feelings without reservations.
