About Me

Clients find my office a place of peace, an optimal environment to gain clarity and improve relationships, as they find a more positive direction. It is important to me to be a trustworthy resource for my clients, placing a high value on facilitating the therapeutic relationship with openness and integrity. I work with clients dealing with emotional, physical and sexual trauma, relational trauma, and medical trauma, ( including abortion) and recovery from the trauma of accidents and criminal acts. Issues of trauma often lead to all sorts of addictions and I work with addictions including sexual addiction. I welcome spirituality as well as spiritual doubt as part of the counseling process.

Certified in both sexual addiction and EMDR, Mary Beth Griffis has been in private practice for over 20 years. She graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary and has training in Emotion Focused Therapy and the Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy.
