Mary A. Reitano MACC, LPC-SC, LPCA-NC, LMFT
Description of practice: I am passionate bout positive psychology, which focuses on strength’s, resources and positive emotions and experiences which can enrich people’s lives. My approach is holistic-addressing emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual health. I also employ cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered therapy and Emotional Focused Therapy with my clients.
Whether it is a desire to restore relationship, a longing to restore hope, or a goal to restore health, counseling can be a beneficial way to achieve growth. I believe life provides us with many opportunities for restoration and that setbacks or mistakes can be overcome. Resilience means learning to “bounce forward” after difficulties. However, at times, we all can use support- a caring person to help restore our balance. I hope to have the opportunity to assist in that journey.
