Maria Arias

Licensed Professional Counselor

I get it! Are you dealing with troubling behaviors? Or, your child not listening to you and being defiant and disrespectful? Does your child have high levels of hyperactivity and regular “meltdowns” that make day to day life very difficult, if not impossible?

My Approach

I offer a highly personalized set of interventions tailored to your family's unique needs. You can expect to gain insight into behavior patterns in your child and foster more connection and cooperation. Learn to take charge in a natural alpha way and increase respect and dignity at home. Experience an increase in emotional awareness and well being of your child. Learn to create a family flow for the day to day that becomes a sanctuary from a busy life. Regain hope, enjoy your precious family time and be the parent you long to be!

My Background

I offer insight and very practical tools based on 24 years of experience as an educator and mental health provider. I began my career as a student of child development in the Montessori method. I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a bachelor's in History in 2007 and with a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology in 2015. I have served children and families since 1995. I draw from interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, and attachment approaches.
