Marya Slater, LMFT, RN

Philosophy of Care

Marya Slater is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Professional Registered Nurse. Marya obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from New York University and her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. Her diverse educational background has enabled Marya to explore therapeutic issues through a broad lens. She maintained a private therapy practice in Manhattan for over 10 years. Marya is experienced working with individuals and couples.

Marya works from a psychodynamic perspective believing that underlying patterns of behavior can be addressed utilizing the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for change. Rather than endorsing a singular methodology, Marya also utilizes techniques from other therapeutic perspectives such as cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-­‐focused approaches to help clients achieve short-­‐term goals while working to address deeper issues in order to live more satisfying, fulfilling lives.

Subscribing to the philosophy that all people bring unique perspectives and strengths to the therapeutic process, Marya strives to help clients recognize their own strengths and build on those assets within the framework of a supportive and nurturing therapeutic relationship.
