About Maria Carrington- I love working with people who feel stuck and have not been able to make the change they are seeking. My ideal client is someone who is wanting to look at and address what they have control over and what they can do to change their reactions. I want to meet you where you are at and help you get to where you want to be. I am flexible in my approach to helping you on your path. I love seeing clients let go of old destructive behaviors and achieve their goals. I believe that therapy is a very useful process and can be life changing regardless if you are in crises or simply not happy with how you life is going. I specialize in helping people with depression and anxiety. Being a clinical social worker I also can help people with PTSD, substance abuse, thoughts of suicide and self harm, relationship conflicts and struggles with chronic pain/conditions. I am also comfortable helping people who struggle with personality disorders.
My graduate training focused in issues related to persons over 65. I enjoy working with people around issues related to aging.
I am a sex-positive, poly and kink-aware therapist. I do couples/family therapy with persons who are in non-traditional relationships as well.
I am also LGBTQQIA+ knowledgeable.
Other info I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I have ten years experience providing therapy in various setting.
I also have extensive experience working with veterans about post deployment concerns, PTSD and mood disorders. I am trained in and have experience providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. These aspects of therapy may be applied to a wide range of behavioral, as well as emotional concerns.
I typically have a dog in the office with me. He is very friendly but also trained to lie down across the room if you wish.
I am located at 9669 Bridgeport way Sw, Lakewood WA. My office is in a little white building that looks like a house. The front of the building is a handy man company called We Honey Do. My entrance is in the back. Please park in the back or the front but do not park in the apartment complex behind me.
