Family & Children’s Counseling Services is happy to welcome Maria Perez as a Therapist Trainee!
Maria is currently a therapist trainee working towards completing her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University. She is expected to graduate in March of 2024. She is under the clinical supervision of Melinda Haynes, MA, LMFT 102308.
Maria holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Upon graduating, she gained valuable experience as a behavioral interventionist working with children and adolescents with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Her time as an interventionist helped her develop an appreciation for children while supporting them through challenges.
Her most recent intern experience included providing therapy services to clients in a men’s residential substance use disorder site
Maria has a passion for helping support clients with their mental health, particularly children and adolescents. She looks forward to getting to know each client and help them achieve their personal goals. Working from a person-centered perspective, her goal is to be fully present and supportive of clients, while providing a safe, non-judgmental space for individuals to feel like their true selves. Maria’s style is warm, empathetic, collaborative, and focused on the client’s strengths.
In her spare time, Maria enjoys spending time with her family and hiking on sunny days with her daughter, or learning how to play disc golf in California’s Central Coast.
Maria will provide community-based services in Monterey County, and will see clients via Telehealth throughout California.
