About me

I believe that everyone should have a safe and nonjudgmental space to work through life's challenges. Everyone owes themselves the time and energy to learn, heal and grow to be their best selves so that they can have the most fulfillment in their personal relationships. I have worked with a wide range of clients dealing with issues such as depression and anxiety, family and relationship issues, life changes and drug and alcohol issues.

I combine different modalities to suit the needs of the individual; including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and solution-focused therapy to help clients live the kind of life they envision for themselves. I hold a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) license and a Substance Use Disorder Professional Certification (SUDP) in the state of Washington.

I look forward to supporting and guiding you on your path to making positive life changes. In order to have our strongest interpersonal relationships; relationships, we need to begin with ourselves.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Mary Ann Skender. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Written on Feb 07, 2024 after therapy with Mary Ann for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

My partner and I have really enjoyed sessions with Mary Ann. We both feel that she is very neutral and does not side with either of us based on gender. We can see sessions with Mary Ann have been helping and look forward to more sessions to fully guide us through issues we have .
