Maria B McGreger Mental Health Counseling

WELCOME

Maria McGreger is a bilingual (Spanish) Licensed Professional Counselor Associate dedicated to providing holistic care tailored to her client's unique values, beliefs, and needs. Her trauma, grief, art and sand-training  allows her approach to seamlessly integrate various theoretical frameworks to help clients understand their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, aiming to equip them with the tools and insights necessary for sustained personal growth and transformative change.

After her tenure in several museums and galleries and as an art consultant and educator,

Maria McGreger sought to merge her passion for serving others. She draws on a wealth of scientific research indicating that the arts can significantly influence mood, attitudes, and emotional states and impact neuroendocrine pathways that regulate physiological outcomes like blood pressure, sleep patterns, and immune response. Research also supports the role of artistic expression in aiding individuals with conditions ranging from depression and anxiety to cancer, facilitating pain processing, and helping in trauma recovery.

Further, participating in artistic activities helps to enhance memory, reasoning skills, and resilience, particularly in older adults. Art's universal accessibility and lack of conformity to specific norms make it a profoundly impactful tool for personal expression and mental health support.

Maria's commitment to advancing her training and research is unwavering. She focuses on providing the most effective treatments for trauma and other mental health needs, ensuring that her practice remains cutting-edge and deeply beneficial to her clients.

As a member of recognized institutions such as the American Counseling Association (ACA), the American Psychological Association (APA), the International Association for Resilience and Trauma Counseling (IART), the American Art Therapy Association (AATA), and the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA), Maria upholds the highest standards of professional practice.
She is privileged to serve her community, drawing upon valuable experience gained under the supervision of Jennifer Galske Reid, M.S., L.P.C-S, and Dr. Andrew Brams, PHD, LSSP.
