Maira’s Bio

Maira is a long time personal empowerment catalyst and self-help junkie. After undergrad, she led mountaineering courses in Colorado, California and South Africa for participants ages 15-65 and from there went on to complete graduate school in Social Work. Maira is a somatically trained psychotherapist devoted to healing trauma and attachment wounding. After being in solo private practice in Denver, CO for the last three years, she decided to expand and created a group psychotherapy practice devoted to bringing somatic and other leading edge approaches to healing. Her new practice is called Somatic Therapy Partners. When she isn’t deep diving into healing work with clients and pursuing further education in trauma resolution, she is dancing, adventuring with her family and pursuing pleasure and freedom.
