Mary Blazier, MA

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Welcome! I strive to create a counseling environment that feels safe, welcoming, and even a little bit fun! I use a variety of approaches to ensure that clients feel accepted, empowered, and supported to reach their goals. Counseling with me is a collaborative effort where we journey together to work towards your healing.  I work with children, adolescents, and adults with a myriad of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, religious issues, self-esteem, phase of life issues, and healing from trauma. As a queer woman, I am passionate about helping others work through issues of identity, belonging, and self acceptance.  I also believe that therapy can be much more than just talking!  Here-and-now experiences can teach us and heal us in ways that go beyond the experience itself. I like to integrate activities such as gardening, mindfulness, art and music, walk and talk sessions in local parks, rock climbing, yoga, and games into my work with clients.  Sometimes you might even get a snuggle from my little dog, Skipper!
