Mara Gutiérrez, LCSW

Psychotherapist
Washington DC
Hi! I’m Mara. I help people look within and find their way back to their wise, centered, grounded Self. Using feelings as feedback, we hold space for intense emotions and explore painful wounds, maladaptive behaviors, and limiting beliefs inflicted by those wounds. I don’t prescribe to tips and tricks looking to minimize or ignore our pain as I believe we can never be free from anything we desperately avoid. Instead, I strive to guide my clients to pay attention and listen to what the discomfort might be trying to tell us. I am committed to my own Self-discovery because I know the more inner work I do, the better I am at guiding others to do the same.
Mara has a BA in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Social Work from Florida International University. She is independently licensed in Washington DC (LICSW) and has extensive experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with major depression and complex trauma.
