Professional statement

Mao Beckett LCSW, LICSW provides liberation-centered care as a somatic-psycho-spiritual therapist and coach. She is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) certified and supports clients with complex PTSD with their healing journey. She helps 1st and 2nd generation, American-born individuals overcome stuckness and unlearn the narrative of sacrifice to discover ease and play to their daily lives.

As an inclusive therapist striving to decolonize mental health care and healing, she incorporates an ethical framework of psychotherapy, spiritual, and healing of the mind, community, body, and spirit. She is independently licensed to practice therapy in Massachusetts, Guam, and Hawai'i.

Her lived experience as a first-generation American, mother, military veteran, and spouse, alongside her formal education, training, and clinical knowledge allows her to support and guide you in a meaningful way where you feel validated and heard. In her practice, your voice is the priority and you are the expert of your life and experiences. Her role is to hold a non-judgmental space and encourage insight and self-awareness to promote optimal healing.


Message to clients

Therapy is not only for crisis management but for self-exploration, reflection, and intentions setting. I am active and collaborative during our work together so you do not feel as though you are doing the work alone. I recognize seeking therapy and professional support can be intimidating. I invite you to bring all of your identities and parts to our meetings where we can honor and explore them at your pace. In this collaborative partnership, we will find the appropriate strategies that works for you to optimize your well-being, mental health, and resiliency.

Client testimonials

"Mao is a wonderful, helpful therapist. My background is very similar to mine and she gets my pain. I finally found a therapist that gives me homework to think about my trauma. Thank you very much Mao!"

"The initial meet and greet on line with Mao Beckett went great. I feel comfortable and confident that she can help me on my journey in mental health issues. We share similar backgrounds and I feel that is important in creating trust and a clinical relationship that I have not been able to find. Thank you Mao!"
