Maria Lytle

Psychotherapy with Adults

Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

I am a doctoral student therapist under the supervision of Caryn Zaner and Jordan Hendrickson, Psy.D. I earned my master’s degree in clinical psychology and I am in the process of completing my doctorate in clinical psychology at George Fox University.

My style is warm, creative, relational, and strength-based. I use a collaborative and integrative approach to therapy; I understand the importance of feeling secure and seen in life, and I will seek to foster an  environment of acceptance with you in our sessions. I draw from Relational-Cultural Theory and Emotion-Focused Therapy to empower people to attune to their emotional experiences, recognize how early attachments are playing out in current relationships, and begin moving toward an integrated life.

I strongly value clients’ unique identities and seek to nurture your expression of sexuality, gender, culture, and spirituality. I strive to provide deeply compassionate and holistic care. My therapeutic interests include, but are not limited to, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, sexual shame and dissatisfaction, racial identity, self-harming, chronic illness and disability, trauma and PTSD.
