Hi, I'm Maria!
Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. I have lived in Northern Nevada for the majority of my life. I graduated from University of Nevada, Reno with my MSW in 2014. I started my career as a social worker for the State of Nevada in the school district for several years and in residential treatment settings, providing case management and mental health services. Later I began work to secure my Clinical License in Social Work. I am a current LCSW and faculty member at UNR Counseling Services where I serve late adolescent to adult clients for a variety of concerns. I have been licensed as a Clinical Social Worker since 2017.
In my spare time I enjoy gardening, reading, eating, skiing, practicing yoga and the challenge of learning new things.
I hope you find something you like here and please get in touch today.
