Professional statement

Maja Nuoffer is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a decade of clinical experience who provides solution-focused counseling and in-depth psychotherapy.

Maja incorporates nature-inspired and client-centered positive psychotherapy in her work to help clients make strengths-based, attainable and timely choices that lead them out of discomfort and fear and into wellness.

Message to clients

You may be subconsciously trapping yourself in repeated cycles of unhealthy choices that, though familiar, leave you feeling stuck, frustrated and anxious. Perhaps your well-intentioned decisions have inadvertently led to anxiety, burnout or stress to the point of exhaustion or illness.

Taking a holistic approach to your healing, I will support you in breaking these day-to-day cycles that bury your true self beneath them. In our work together, we will take a gentle, honest and achievable approach to help you heal the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual dimensions of who you are. In a compassionate and nonjudgmental space, I will guide you to the core root of your pain, give you simple self-care tools you may use and help you cultivate clarity, self-trust and resilience.
