Professional statement

Maris Pasquale Doran is a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist in the New York City metro area. Maris works with individual adults typically seeking therapeutic support because they have a level of dissatisfaction in their lives or relationships. Often, life transitions or other stressors cause them to feel overwhelmed or unfulfilled. Especially during this pandemic, many people are experiencing anxiety and uncertainty, and previous personal and professional roles and patterns have become less relevant as they navigate a “new normal.” Maris has a relaxed, personable demeanor and creates a comfortable space to help clients gain clarity about their situations and individual goals.

Viewing the therapeutic experience as an opportunity to learn more deeply about yourself, Maris engages a holistic therapeutic approach and explores all aspects of a client's life. Integrating mindfulness, she aims not only to increase self-awareness but also an individual’s sense of being present in their life and engaging in it with purpose and intention.

Maris graduated cum laude from Georgetown University where she received her BA in psychology. She has an MS in social work from Columbia University and a post masters certificate in advanced assessment and diagnosis from NYU. She has a history of clinical work, professional writing, and presenting on the emotional impact of illness and chronic pain. Her experience makes her uniquely positioned to address the many variables that evolve from living through a pandemic.

Based in New Jersey, Maris is licensed in both New Jersey and New York and is currently seeing clients from both states exclusively via telehealth at this time.


Message to clients

Congratulations on taking this first step!

Therapy does not have to begin because of trauma or crisis. If you are curious about your functioning in the world and in your relationships, committing to this process will increase your sense of self. In exploring our emotions, reactions, roles, and relationships, we can begin to make desired changes. Therapy is an opportunity to more deeply engage in your life and all aspects of it.

My initial aim is to provide a safe space for you to be authentic and vulnerable about who you are in this world and how to make your life feel the most satisfying to you. Your culture, ethnicity, family, sexuality, spirituality, and myriad other factors, influence who you are today. I am trained and experienced to safely explore those areas together and connect how your history has shaped your experiences and relationship styles and patterns. Together, we will refine goals to include areas you may want to emphasize or to change.

I welcome the opportunity to provide a dynamic setting in which you can fully explore all the aspects of your unique individuality, set goals, and work towards them together.
