Maya Perez

Welcome, I’m excited to meet you

Approaching therapy is a courageous act. It requires noticing that you’re not feeling, existing, or living the life you may want. In a world with countless structural forces that have oppressed and harmed for generations, it’s common to notice our sense of self, relationships, and wellbeing suffer. I believe therapy can offer a chance to break through those generational patterns by exploring their roots, learning new skills, and practicing new ways of being with ourselves and in relationships.

I know that you have all of the knowledge, skills, and strength within you to survive this world and create a life that you love and I am excited to offer you loving support in getting there.

My Style.

My approach to therapy is founded on my commitment to unearthing the ways injustice and oppression impact our self worth, embodiment of values, and psychological wellness. In sessions I aim to be gentle, playful, and nonjudgemental while exploring your unique strengths and power as well the beliefs and patterns that are no longer serving you. I practice from a trauma informed perspective working to explore your self defeating narratives, relationship and family dynamics, and childhood experiences. I’m passionate about integrating somatic, or body based work, whenever possible to begin to tap into the immense wisdom each body holds.

As your counselor, our relationship will be incredibly important to me. I work intentionally to ensure that you feel safe, seen, and lovingly challenged. I want to support your growth in feeling empowered and confident in how you approach the challenges which brought you here. To do this, we can work on discovering new insights, developing new skills, boundaries, and coping mechanisms that create and maintain the life and relationships you want!

I offer therapy to adults, teens, as well as relationships including couples, triads, and pods. It is my hope that our counseling relationships will be a container for you to explore and practice living your most authentic and liberated life.

Going Deeper.

My healing journey has centered around exploring who I am, what I deserve, and how to create a life where I feel loved and free. I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii to a Latino father and White mother. Navigating a multiethnic family I experienced grief, confusion, and joy in fumbling through language, tradition, and identity. Coming into my queer identity through a harmful relationship I lost trust in myself and struggled with feeling worthy of healthy love and relationships. I got too comfortable in a pattern of taking care of others at the expense of myself.

While completing an undergraduate degree at Pacific Lutheran University in Sociology and Gender Studies, I began studying all the intricate connections between systemic oppression and mental health. I became deeply grounded in the belief that healing both individually and collectively is an act of joyful resistance.

My passion for working with individuals and couples comes out of how transformative relationships of all kinds have been in my life. While not always easy or comfortable, they have pushed me towards healing in order to live a more authentic, loving, and gentle life. And you are so deserving of that too.
