Maria D. Savala-Mahany, M.Ed, MFT Receives 2014 Best of Apple Valley Award

Congratulations! Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a cognitive behavioral therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and/or coaching techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.


Mrs. Savala-Mahany has a Master’s degree with an emphasis on Women’s’ Issues and Adolescent Behavioral Health. She is a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor from The District of Columbia. She has over 19 years of counseling experience with individuals, families, and groups. She has experience working in a variety of social settings: schools, counseling agencies, medical centers and outpatient clinics. She also has experience in crisis intervention, conflict resolution, supervision, and has worked with many diverse populations.

On May 16, 2014 Maria was selected for the

2014 Best of Apple Valley Award in the
