When asked why she wanted to work at CMAP Health and what her clients may expect, this was Maria’s
feedback: “I appreciate Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for its effectiveness and structured evidence-
based model. I always was thrilled with the idea of how our thoughts, feelings and behaviour are
interlinked and interdependent. CBT can be applied to various mental issues, and promote positive
modification in clients’ behaviour, feelings and thinking process. Also, I value working with a
multidisciplinary team of dedicated professionals.
My clients can expect my full attention and consideration of their problems, trustful and non-judgmental
atmosphere, and my desire to investigate in depth their issues in order to provide the most productive
intervention. I am there for my clients to assist and guide them in achieving their fullest potential and
functioning in life”.
Currently, Maria is completing her CBT training program with Unified CBT Academy.
