Mayra Sanchez, MA, LMFTA

Individual and Couples Therapist

Bilingual in Spanish

Mayra has a passion working with individuals and couples with an intention of creating a space for healing through courage and authenticity. Mayra’s gentle, yet direct approach creates a compassionate and non-judgmental therapeutic experience for you to gain insight, heal emotional wounds, achieve personal growth, and to reclaim your ability to lead an authentic, and happy life. Mayra is honored for the opportunity to join you on this empowering journey, as you learn new ways of thinking, doing, and being.

Working with Individuals:
Life can sometimes lead us to unexpected places. Whether you’re feeling stuck or experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, or other concerns, Mayra will be by your side as your advocate and support while you journey toward hope and healing. With empowerment, attunement, and encouragement, she can help you discover the tools that you have within yourself to cultivate purpose and intention for an authentic life.Through the therapeutic alliance you will gain understanding about yourself, identify unhelpful tendencies that no longer serve you, and better navigate the challenges that life throws your way. As your therapist, Mayra will collaborate with you to set and achieve realistic goals for your growth by using proven therapeutic techniques to see lasting, positive change.

Working with Couples:
Have you and your partner felt stuck in an unproductive cycle of conflict that repeats over and over, leaving you both feeling disconnected, discouraged, and  disengaged? Mayra can help you both identify and interrupt this cycle, resulting in improved congruent communication, increased understanding of yourself and each other, and more trust, intimacy and happiness by using the most effective forms of couples therapy. Using a mixture of Experiential Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Mayra will help you and your partner repair attachment wounds, build trust, and find better ways of engaging. Mayra is intentional and committed to maintaining a brave space for clients to feel heard, seen, and understood by dedicating her attention to each personal narrative and working collaboratively towards goals so that productive change prevails.

How I can help: 
Mayra provides therapy to individuals and couples using a systems-oriented and culturally sensitive approach to help each individual achieve their goals, develop strong relationships, create deeper meaningful connections and interrupt unhelpful patterns. She has experience working with individuals and couples from a variety of backgrounds, including: post pregnant/postpartum women, Spanish-speaking clients, couples, teens, and adults. As a first-generation American, a Latina, and a proud daughter of immigrant parents, Mayra has a passion for advocating and empowering BIPOC individuals and clients who hold marginalized identities by deconstructing privilege and oppressive narratives that impact our daily lives.
