Maria Fletcher is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, practicing in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts. She specializes in the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship concerns, and loss and grief, including complicated grief. Clients often seek Maria's support when feeling “stuck” in a certain pattern – this could be due to conflict with a partner, work stress, or a major life event.
Maria strives to provide a safe and supportive environment for clients to share and process difficult life experiences. In sessions, clients will have space to evaluate and work through emotions, often present just beneath the surface.
Maria takes a psychodynamic approach to treatment, and also incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This blend of modalities provides clients with opportunities to develop deeper self-knowledge, while also presenting them with tangible skills to alter unhelpful patterns of behavior.
In addition to her private practice, Maria has many years’ experience working at Butler Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. She is able to provide teletherapy to clients in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. She looks forward to working with you.
