About Maria Nation, LSW

Maria Nation, LSW, helps clients grow in whatever way they need. Her goal is for each session to not feel like therapy, but instead a place for insight and support.

Maria earned an MSW from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and has worked extensively with children, adolescents, and young adults struggling with PTSD/Trauma, mood disorders, self-harm, depression, and more. She is also certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

In therapy, Maria tailors her approach to the specific needs of the client. This could include "typical" talk therapy, playing a game, listening to music, or going for a walk. She believes each client is an expert on themselves, so sessions are client led without judgment or pressure.
