Maria Beatty
(She, Her, Hers)



Maria Beatty has been working with families for over 20 years. She is a teacher-turned doula-turned psychotherapist. She began her career teaching at a small neighborhood school in 1999. She became certified as a childbirth teacher in 2002, helping couples have unmedicated births.  She worked as a doula, assisting in the births of more than a dozen children, many of whom she still knows today. 

She is a licensed professional counselor who favors an eclectic, relational approach.  She works with children and young adults.  Her clients walk away with a tool-kit of strategies they can use in any situation, a feeling of “YES” and a lasting sense that they are on the path to living the life they’ve always wanted. She has demonstrated expertise, authority, and trustworthiness working in diverse settings: schools, hospitals, clinics, and places of worship. 

Maria’s parents emigrated to the US in the 1960s from the Philippines. She grew up in predominantly-white spaces and has done extensive work over her lifetime to cultivate her own positive racial identity. Resistance movements and anti-racism ideologies inspire her work. She enjoys stand-up paddle-surfing and tending her Lockdown plant collection when she's not working.
