Maria Lynn Guido
MSW, LCSW

Child & Adolescent Therapist

Maria has been practicing therapy for 7 years, specializing in family therapy, trauma, and attachment. She has experience in a variety of settings and uses techniques including but not limited to, trauma-focused CBT, Dialectical behavioral therapy, and attachment therapy. She also has extensive training on adoption/trauma issues, and how developmental trauma plays a role in maladaptive behaviors.

Maria also has a passion for working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families who have been impacted by incarceration and institutionalization. Her unique experience working in a court setting has given her the tools to see how bigger systems can create more stressors, and her non-judgemental approach gives people a safe and secure setting to help process the emotions that come up with system involvement.

Maria believes in an eclectic approach to therapy, meeting a person where they are at in life, and using their strengths to assist with their personal growth. Maria sees herself as a guide to show people the tools to resolve the problems that are keeping them stuck. Her focus is to provide a safe space, empower a person to heal from the past and create a new normal.

"The past affects the present, even without our being aware of it." -Francine Shapiro

Whether we are aware or not, distressing events we have experienced can be negatively affecting our day to day lives. Trauma and stress can leave us feeling alone, broken, on edge, angry, or sad. It is my goal to offer a safe, supportive space to allow for healing and personal growth.

MA, MS, Pre-licensed therapist

EMDR Therapist in Training

Adolescent (14+) & Adult Therapist

As a Therapist, I focus on achieving wellness through supported exploration of mind and body. I specialize in working with addiction, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I enjoy working with individuals going through big life changes and transitions, and helping people make positive changes to improve the quality of their life. Wellness promotes healthy and informed decision-making, leading to more satisfying results. I am here to support your growth. You deserve to be heard. Past trauma can often be an obstacle to positive change. Trauma can keep us in a pattern of decision-making, motivated by fear and anxiety, leading to dissatisfaction. My goal is to help identify how past traumas show up in present life. In a warm and inviting environment, we can explore your strengths and find wellness through healing.

I welcome clients with varying issues. I have a background in teaching and personal health training and a passion for counseling. I am here to create a therapeutic relationship with adults and adolescents to identify and pursue goals.

Susie provides a non-judgmental, supportive and safe environment. Brining her authentic self to each session. Empowering you with the tools to manage and enjoy your life. She believes that people are resilient and have the ability to resolve their problems if shown the tools.

Trauma can create a feeling within us that others won't accept us, see us or feel what we feel. It can leave us feeling scared, alone and judged. Life stressors can develop creating a mountain that seems too big to climb. It can create a space where you don't have the words to describe what you are feeling and experiencing. You don't have to. Therapy is a journey of discovery and an experience of acceptance and safety. Healing occurs when we recognize where we have been and create new paths for our lives. She accompanies people on their journey towards healing.

Susie grew up outside of Philadelphia and has lived in Pittsburgh for over 20 years. She resides in Hampton with her husband, son and a menagerie of family pets. Including the now famous, Buck Beak (a cockatiel) who frequents virtual secessions.

EMDR Therapist in Training

Child, Adolescent and Young Adult Therapist

Bethany is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional (CATP), and a Reiki Practitioner. Bethany is an EMDR Trained Therapist and has advanced training in healing pre-verbal trauma utilizing EMDR Therapy.

As a passionate and empathetic mental health professional, Bethany seeks to provide creative, exploratory therapeutic practices to help children, adolescents, and young adults flourish.

She seeks to enhance the brain/body connections to aid in healthy, autonomous development while healing from past traumatic experiences. Bethany's approach is very holistic, playful, person-centered, and trauma-informed.

Bethany views the most important gift we can develop for ourselves and others as awareness. Awareness promotes active participation in the present moment. Within that present moment, we can grow -make changes, heal, succeed, evolve, express, and unlock deeply buried truths. When we develop increased awareness of self and others, we learn how to sit with uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, and sensations, receive their messages, and make beneficial strides towards healing.
