Hi, I’m Maya Benattar. I’m a music psychotherapist, but you might also call me a mindfulness mentor, a creativity coach, or a big fan of slowing down.
I help women who long to experience true clarity and confidence in themselves and their lives, but are held back by anxiety or fear. I support them in slowing down and exploring their lives creatively so they can make significant changes and discover the strong, confident woman they can be.
I know from my own life and many years of helping other women that putting yourself first and asking for help can kick up a lot of fear and shame – but I strongly believe that slowing down and looking inside can help you become strong, passionate, sensitive, and brave.
As a trained and experienced therapist (I have a Masters degree from NYU and am a NYS licensed psychotherapist), I know a lot about how to slow down your hectic life, explore your dreams and thoughts through mindfulness, play and more (adults need to play too!), and develop new ways of coping creatively.
