Maria Paoli-Vega


About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with 8 years of experience working as a therapist. I am a graduate of the University of West Florida with a MA in Counseling Psychology. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship/marital issues, parenting concerns, and sexual trauma. I am a polyamory-affirming therapist and LGBT+ affirming therapist.

My counseling philosophy is that you are the expert of your own experience. My goal as your counselor is to use my therapeutic expertise to help facilitate changes you'd like to make in your relationship. There is no "one size fits all" approach to treatment. As such, we will customize your treatment plan to meet your specific needs as a couple. My counseling style is collaborative and I seek to empower couples to learn, heal, communicate, and grow. I utilize techniques from various modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy.

It takes courage to create change in your relationship and heal from past wounds. Taking these first few steps is something to be proud of. I look forward to working with you!
