Maria Peroots
Counselor Resident

Maria seeks to create a therapeutic relationship where safety, compassion, humor, curiosity, warmth, and support are all found.

Maria treats a variety of challenges including life transitions, women’s issues, relationship issues, communication, anxiety, and depression. 

 

Maria tailors her therapeutic approach based on the goals of each individual, focusing on holistic practices. She incorporates components of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), strength-based therapy, humanistic therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and art therapy techniques whenever possible. 

 

Maria completed her undergraduate degree at West Virginia University where she majored in Strategic Communications and completed her Master’s Degree at Bowie State University in Mental Health Counseling. She previously served as a psychotherapist in an intensive outpatient facility. She looks forward to gaining experience as a Resident in Counseling at THLH, with a diverse population.
