Maria Connolly, MS, LPC, CHT, GCFP
Maria is a Master Practitioner and trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. She has a passion for provoking thought and inspiring action toward living more authentically and successfully.
In the past several years, Maria has broadened her skills to include modalities that enhance and build upon NLP technology. Among the most extensive are Hakomi and Sensorimotor psychotherapy, Self-relation/Generative psychology and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. The most recent addition to Maria’s tool kit is The Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education, a natural extension of the principles of NLP and a great somatic approach to both personal and professional development.
With over 15 years experience working with women, she developed the program: Women’s Empowerment & Self Leadership, which contains powerful tools to change unconscious limiting beliefs and promote personal and professional mastery. She is also the co-author of the Life in Balance: The Seven Keys, a comprehensive well-being and skill development series. As a presenter and educator, she has both the warmth and the depth to provide practical take-away value in a lively and entertaining way.
In addition to training, Maria currently maintains a private therapy, coaching, consulting and mentoring practice in Ashland, Oregon. You can find out more about Maria’s private practice on her website: http://newayscenter.com.
