Mara Kyzer

I am a provider at our Monroeville clinic who provides therapy services in-person and via telehealth. As a pre-licensed therapist specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Person-Centered Therapy, and Psychoeducation, I offer a comprehensive approach to mental health and well-being. My practice is rooted in evidence-based techniques that are tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual client. 

Utilizing CBT, I work with clients to identify and challenge negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be contributing to their distress. Through collaborative exploration and practical strategies, clients learn to reframe their thinking and develop healthier coping mechanisms to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and other challenges.

Incorporating elements of DBT, I provide skills training to help clients regulate their emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and build resilience in the face of adversity. By teaching mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills, clients develop greater self-awareness and the tools needed to navigate life’s ups and downs more effectively.

Drawing from the principles of Person-Centered Therapy, I create a warm, empathetic, and nonjudgmental environment where clients feel heard, valued, and supported. By fostering a strong therapeutic alliance, I empower clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences at their own pace, facilitating self-discovery and personal growth.

Additionally, I integrate psychoeducation into my practice to provide clients with valuable knowledge and insights into mental health, coping strategies, and self-care practices. By equipping clients with information and resources, they are empowered to take an active role in their own healing journey and make informed decisions about their well-being.

Overall, my approach as a pre-licensed therapist is holistic, collaborative, and client-centered, aimed at helping individuals achieve greater self-awareness, resilience, and overall mental wellness. Through a combination of evidence-based techniques, compassionate support, and empowering guidance, I strive to empower clients to overcome challenges, cultivate self-compassion, and lead more fulfilling lives.

As someone dedicated to fostering a safe and supportive therapeutic space, I want my potential clients to know that beyond my professional qualifications and expertise, I bring a deep sense of empathy, understanding, and genuine care to every interaction.
For children and teens specifically, I recognize the unique challenges they face during these formative years. Whether it’s navigating academic pressures, social dynamics, family conflicts, or coping with emotional struggles, I am here to provide a compassionate and understanding ear.
I want parents and guardians to know that I approach my work with young clients with sensitivity and respect for their individual experiences and perspectives. By creating an environment where they feel heard, valued, and accepted, I aim to build trust and rapport, essential for effective therapy outcomes.
I understand that reaching out for help can sometimes feel daunting or intimidating, but I want to assure potential clients that they are not alone on their journey. Together, we can work collaboratively to explore their concerns, uncover strengths, and develop practical skills and strategies to navigate life’s challenges more effectively.
Whether you’re seeking support for yourself or your child, I invite you to take the first step towards healing and growth by reaching out to me. Together, we can embark on a journey towards greater self-awareness, resilience, and overall well-being. Your mental health matters, and I am here to support you every step of the way.
