About Maritza Plascencia
Intimate relationships are hard! Especially when we have been hurt in the past. Sometimes we feel disconnected and confused and no matter how hard we try, those feelings just don't go away. At times it becomes difficult to trust without becoming overwhelmed with anxiety. You wonder if your partner is cheating or planning on leaving, though you have no evidence of either. Maybe you feel your partner is too consumed by other areas in their life and has forgotten about you, which has you feeling lonely and questioning the relationship.
I work with those who seek the path back to meaningful relationships. I offer evidence-based, compassionate, authentic, and directive guidance. I help individuals looking to connect with others reconnect with themselves first. I help couples connect, while learning to listen to themselves in the interactions with their partner.
Trained in EMDR therapy, I help individuals address trauma and other mental health concerns interfering in their relationships. Also trained in one of the most effective treatments for couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy. I meet clients where they're at with a mindful/integrative approach customized to their needs.
