Maria Velasco


Hello!  I am a Wyoming native and second-generation American.  I served on the board of Juntos Wyoming for two years and was a member from 2017 to early 2022.  I have two dogs, Zeke and Kiwi, and three cats, Banana, Mango, and Blueberry.  I enjoy reading, eating food (especially Asian-style food), and spending time with my loved ones.

More about Maria

My pronouns are she/her.  I specialize in working with the LGBTQ+ community.  I strive to provide a warm and affirming space for you to explore your perspectives, values, feelings and to build resiliency.  I work with children over 8 years old, adolescents, young adults, and families.  I have a considerable background working with trauma, emotional regulation, relationship issues, divorce, and pandemic-related stress.  I primarily use dialectal behavior therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, and internal family systems.  I aim to prioritize BIPOC mental health and focus on how the systems and barriers around us can create mental health issues. 


“How do you know that you’re healing?  I could have spent the entire day angry about this.  Instead, I don’t allow my problems to speak when my peace has so much more to say.”
