I’m Maria Perez, a marriage counselor with my practice in beautiful Newport Beach, California.
For the last 12 years I have had wonderful opportunities to do counseling with individuals, children, couples, and families in a wide variety of settings. I have been fortunate enough to be able to volunteer supporting children and families all throughout Orange County. I spent several years working with local schools as a counselor assisting children and helping families learn how to handle their academic and social journey.
All of my clients need an environment that is safe, and provides a place for healing. I believe what my clients need is thoughtful, respectful, and honest feedback. There are many different psychological theories, and I integrate them so each individual’s therapy is approached with sensitivity and flexibility. I believe a psychologist is successful with their client when they get guidance, compassion and humor from me. You already have all of the needed resources to begin to heal. My job is to use those resources. Working together we will begin to make the changes needed so that your emotional health will be restored.
