Mary Cibelius, CADC, MA Intern

I believe therapeutic healing must begin with unconditional acceptance and compassion.  My value is that each of us is whole, possessing inherent worthiness that is often corrupted by shame and judgment, limiting our ability to engage in our lives.  Often it’s our efforts to hide our vulnerability that drives many unhealthy behaviors. 

 

With a blend of experiential learning, classical therapeutic techniques enhanced by spiritual principles and soul-directed action plans, I support my clients’ inner search for authenticity and peace. My approach aims to release the guilt and shame which blocks the path to recovery.  Through this deep-healing process, clients are empowered to engage life from a place of worthiness, self-acceptance and belonging.  


I have many years of experience as a spiritual counselor and Certified Alcohol and Drug Addictions Counselor in a wide variety of settings.  As a clinical counseling Masters candidate, I'm drawing from the depth and breadth of my personal and professional experience as a CADC, spiritual director (when appropriate) and the most up-to-date research and theory on mental, emotional, relational and spiritual health  I look forward to meeting you!

My specialties include:

  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Addictions
  • Spiritual questioning
