Hello, I’m Mary Straus, LPC, and welcome to my website.

When selecting a counselor, it can be helpful to know a person’s training and experience. However, it is equally if not more important to consider your own impressions of a therapist including your sense of comfort and trust when you meet with her or him.

I approach my practice from a discerning clinical understanding of the psyche. From that knowledge base, I use thoughtfulness and kindness, and I appreciate the humor in things while utilizing psychodynamic, family systems, and mindfulness-oriented techniques.

Highlights of My Experience:

  • 18 years psychotherapy with adults, couples, and families
  • 10 years development of programs serving multi-system involved families
  • 17 years clinical supervision
  • Certification in Brief Strategic Family Therapy
  • EMDR training
  • 10 years occupational therapy practice with children and in behavioral health

I Serve:

  • Individual adolescents to adults of all ages
  • Couples
  • Families with children of all ages

Feel free to contact me. It can be difficult to reach out for help.  I encourage you to call.  If I am not the right person to help, I assure you I will do what I can to get you to the right person.
