Welcome, Bem Vindo, Bienvenido! 

Maira Horta, LMFT

Thanks for stopping by my page. My name is Maira (pronounced: my-ee-da) Horta. I'm a native Brazilian and can offer sessions in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. I live and work in University Heights but have been enjoying life in beautiful San Diego since 1996. 

If we work together, I am thrilled to share my culturally sensitive and unique therapeutic approach with you. I will be an active participant in our sessions. And yes, that means, together, we will likely laugh, cry, discuss relationships, worries, fears, and/or self sabotaging but all in an effort to help you move forward into the person you know you can be. 

I enjoy working with teens, adults, and couples; specializing in anxiety, panic attacks and OCD. I have experience helping navigate work, family, and intimate (including LGBT) relationships. We can work on adjusting to unexpected life-changes, PTSD, depression, and/or grief. 

I have been in this field since 2006 and my background includes EMDR, Emotionally Focused Couples therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and four years as a career coach. 

If this sounds like the right partnership for you. Please contact me via the information on this page. I look forward to to talking with you and helping achieve your goals.
