Maaya Ota LMFT

Hi, I'm Maaya.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who truly enjoys helping people live their lives to their full potential. I have experience working with adults, young adults, teens, children, as well as couples and families. I see challenges in life as opportunities for growth, and invitation to better ourselves.


I believe everyone has their own answers inside, so I utilize a strength-based approach in my sessions. I also like to utilize psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, solution-focused, family systems and humanistic/existential approaches depending on each client’s needs. In therapy, you will learn more about yourself and know how to manage your own feelings and thoughts better, no matter the situation. I’m excited to collaboratively work with you to help you become the best version of yourself in your life journey!
