I'm Maia Newman, a licensed therapist working with individuals and couples determined to improve their lives.

I have had great success with people who have previously found therapy to be ineffective. My clients tell me that my approach is very refreshing and promotes transformation quickly.

If you are in a relationship I can help you and your partner change what is not working between you and rediscover the natural strengths and deep connection you once felt.  

If you are in transition or feeling stuck in any way, I can guide you to clarify and accomplish your life goals.  

I will do far more than “just listen” - I will introduce you to a new set of tools and teach skills that will help you to create the change you are seeking.

I look forward to hearing from you and discovering I how I can help!

Here's What Clients Say About Working With Me:

Without Maia's help, we would keep having the same fights, over and over again, without realizing they are the mutual enemy, not ourselves.”

“Maia has a special ability to cut through my tangents and uncertainty with an insightful question or a careful challenge. The changes in my life that I can directly or indirectly ascribe to her influence, is sublime: curbing my drinking, how I see myself and take care of myself, and how I have been able to just get at the root of things while making practical improvements.”

“Maia has helped us relax and accept who we are as individuals, who we are together, and helped us see the humor and humanity in many of our situations.”

“I credit my work with Maia for transforming me from someone who constantly made dangerous choices about men into someone who fell in love with a loving, supportive, kind man that I’m now happily married to!”

“We quickly got to the root of our issues and also established clear guidelines to move forward with key challenging issues. We’ve become better communicators!”

I had an affair that devastated me, and ultimately us.  Working with Maia I changed myself and I
found myself at the same time
. Now I feel genuine happiness and connectivity with the people in my life. I feel like the luckiest person in the world!”

“I now have an understanding that I hold emotions in my body that have been there for years, and how that locked energy can hold me back.  This is the foundation of the process of working with Maia.”
