Maria Byrd, MS, LPC
Maria has experience working in a variety of settings including residential treatment, inpatient, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care. She specializes in providing art and psychotherapy for adolescents and adults struggling with eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety and co-occurring disorders. Special interests include improving self esteem and promoting positive body image.

"Making the decision to seek therapy can be difficult. I am here to provide guidance and support while encouraging a deeper understanding. I utilize both art and psychotheraputic techniques to provide creative solutions to life's problems and encourage personal growth. There is no need to have prior art experience to benefit from art therapy."
