Practice Description:
During COVID-19, it is crucial to maintain/increase self-care, not the opposite. I'm offering phone sessions on a "pay as you can" basis.


I'm Maia Newman, a licensed therapist with 25 years of experience working with individuals and couples determined to improve their lives.

I have had great success with people who have previously found therapy to be ineffective. My clients tell me that my approach is very refreshing and promotes transformation quickly.
I will do far more than “just listen” - I will introduce you to a new set of tools and teach skills that will help you to create the change you are seeking.

I offer both short and long term therapy in the form of deep Immersion Therapy sessions, phone therapy and traditional in-person sessions.


If you are single and hoping to create a relationship you will be able to address any unhealthy patterns that might be getting in the way of creating the relationship you have been wanting. When you are ready you will learn how to attract the kind of partner you have been searching for and feel better about yourself during the process. If you have lost your partner you can get support during the grieving process and begin rebuilding your life.


I will teach you and your partner how to use communication tools that are concrete and accessible. You will finally put an end to the predictable and painful cycle of repeat fights with no resolution and and rediscover the natural strengths and deep connection you once felt. Together you’ll return to a place of deep love and shared intimacy. You will laugh together again and trust will be restored.


-Keep passion alive over time
-Improve communication
-Make a deeper commitment
-Adjust to the birth of a child
-Align your parenting
-Negotiate life transitions and role changes
-Strengthen or rediscover the connection you once felt with each other
-Heal after an affair or betrayal
-Separate from your partner if that is the healthiest option


If you are in transition or feeling stuck in any way, I can guide you to clarify and accomplish your life goals.

Most people have a very critical relationship with themselves. I will help you dissolve blocks around self acceptance and compassion.


-Release negative emotions such as fear, guilt, shame and anger
-Learn tools to be less reactive and remain emotionally regulated
-Understand how your past experiences are impacting you today and change unhealthy coping
strategies that are no longer serving you
-Increase your awareness of your experience without self-attack and self-criticism
-Have your speech and behaviors more accurately reflect what you actually think and feel
-Find a sense of forgiveness for yourself and for others
-Communicate in a way that will reduce pain and conflict
-Enhance your capacity for deep acceptance and love

I offer both short term and long term therapy. I look forward to hearing from you and discovering I how I can help!

Fee Schedule: Please inquire about my fee. Payment for each session is due at the conclusion of the appointment unless other arrangements have been made. Cash or personal checks are acceptable for payment.
Insurance and Billing Instructions: I will provide statements for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement at "out of network" rates. Please inquire about this when you call to schedule your first appointment.
Office Hours: Please inquire about current openings
Additional Comments: I accept only clients in my private practice whom I believe have the capacity to resolve their own problems with my assistance. You will be able to tell if the counseling is effective. Trust your instincts about whether or not I am the right therapist for you. Feeling confident about who you have chosen to work with is an essential part of the therapeutic process.

Some clients need only a few sessions to achieve their goals, while others may require a longer period of time in therapy to obtain the results they are looking for. You may end the counseling at any point and I will be supportive of that decision. If therapy is successful, you should feel that you are able to face life’s challenges in the future without my support.
