I have been seeing Mariya for the past year and have seen my mental health transform before my eyes. Mariya is thoughtful, insightful, and compassionate all while being able to tackle various mental health issues that have that have plagued my life head on through cognitive therapy and inner child work. I feel better than I ever have since working with Mariya, and she has given me the tools and strategies to help myself without feeling like I have to depend solely on myself. If you are looking for a therapist in the South Beach area, Mariya Petrova is the best!

Life is an amazing journey that at times challenges us to our limits. At those challenging times, when we feel overwhelmed, lost and in a dark place is when we are most vulnerable. It is at those moments that we need help and guidance. Such was my situation at the beginning of this year. Then I found my guide, Dr. Mariya Petrova. Mariya is a special kind of person, one with a deep understanding of the human experience and, the often complex and hidden from view, factors that drive our behaviors and our reactions to the situations and circumstances of our lives. Mariya will not provide you answers but will instead help guide you to find them within you. Mariya will challenge you to look deep within yourself and help identify the circumstances, significant events and moments in your life that have shaped who you are today. When you are empowered with this understanding, you will regain your footing, your direction, and the confidence in your resiliency and ability to navigate the most...

About Me

Why Do I Offer a Free 30-minute Initial Consultation? A good therapist-client match is essential for successfully reaching clients’ goals. The trial and error method of identifying a good counselor, however, is not cost efficient and often becomes a barrier for many people to access the support they deserve.  To ensure that my skill set suits your needs, I invite you to find more about how I practice and I am eager to learn more about you!  

My Experience and Education: I am a NY & FL State licensed mental health counselor with a master's degree from University of Rochester, NY and currently completing my doctoral degree at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. For 9 years I served as a faculty member at the Department of Psychiatry at University of Rochester and as a clinician supporting adolescents, adults and families. I have worked with more than 60 educational institutions across the country, large companies, as well as with the U.S. Air Force.     

My Expertise: I specialize in supporting clients encountering challenging life circumstances like a divorce, change of career, dysfunctional relationships, or triggered past trauma. These events often manifest themselves though anxiety, depression, loss of purpose and self-esteem, anger and/or increased substance use. My aim is not to keep you in therapy indefinitely but rather to (1) assist you in returning as quickly as possible to a healthy and balanced life and (2) to provide you with a trusted consultant should you ever need support and a reliable perspective. 

What to Expect: I do not view my clients as “disordered”. Many of us develop clever ways to function in nearly impossible situations, however with time these methods become oudated, do us more harm than good and create an obstacle to further growth. I will help you (1) accurately identify the source of your discomfort, (2) investigate how your patterns were formed and how to change them, and most importantly (3) put in practice new ways of thinking, acting and feeling. Therapy is of no use if it does not produce real life results!
