Hi, I’m Maria C. Inoa, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
And I provide counseling for women in Jacksonville
I help women who are struggling in one or more relationships to build healthier and happier relationships. Through a down to earth and compassionate approach, I provide a comfortable and cozy space where you can feel safe and supported.
Together, we will identify ways to increase your self-esteem, identify negative relationship patterns, address boundaries, and better ways to cope.
Helping Women Overcome Relationship Struggles
Oftentimes, our expectation of what our relationships should like is vastly different than how they really are. Sometimes, images from television and movies skew our thinking. Other times, we act out what we saw growing up by those closest to us. Sometimes, it’s just not being sure of who we really are that creates problems in relationships.
You may be struggling in a relationship with a family member, a friend, or romantic partner. You may feel a sense of hopelessness, worthlessness, confusion, sadness, or not be sure which direction to turn.
Most People Don’t Understand the Importance of Self-Love
Relationships aren’t easy. Sometimes loving yourself isn’t easy, but you have to love yourself first before you can love someone else. It's easy for relationships to cause us to feel hopeless, frustrated, guilty, sad, and down on ourselves.
It’s Possible to Start Feeling Better
As your therapist, I will help you to see the positive in yourself, your relationships, and the world.
- Increase your self-esteem and learn to love yourself.
- Learn how to recognize and deal with negative relationship patterns.
- Learn more about boundaries and when and how to set them in your life.
- Get a better sense of direction in your relationships.
- Learn better ways to cope with your circumstances.
I’ll help you build happier, healthier relationships with yourself and others to reach your full potential.
