Maria Bautista

Online therapy for New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Massachusetts & Florida residents.

New York Based Licensed Psychotherapist & Clinical Consultant


I received my Bachelors in Psychology with minors in Sociology and Spanish, a Masters in Clinical Social Work, Post Master’s Certificate in Advanced Clinical Practice, Seminar in Field Instruction(SIFI) Certificate and extensive training in various treatment modalities such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brainspotting, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) which allow me to work relationally, experientially and somatically in sessions.

As a bilingual/bicultural (English & Spanish) psychotherapist, I’ve had the privilege of working with clients from all kinds of backgrounds and life experiences. I have found in my work that clients often carry with them struggles surrounding numerous and intersecting identities such as race, immigration, assimilation/acculturation, culture, religion, gender, sexual preference, class, etc. 

I specialize in working with LatinX/Latine, millennials, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+. I am compassionate, personable and practice with a judgement free, culturally-informed, anti-oppressive framework that is eclectic, gentle, nurturing and incredibly honest. 

To me, therapy should be a collaborative, exciting, and rewarding experience. It's the dynamic process of looking deep within and gaining clarity about who you are and what you want. I utilize an integrative approach to help you create intimacy in your relationships, implement boundaries, and build resilience. My clients feel more grounded and self-assured as a result of our work together.
