I draw from my lived and professional experience to help others connect with their own internal guidance and intuition toward healing.
I am here as a resource to you as you integrate and find new understanding from difficult experiences and emotions. I am ready to act as your anchor as you delve into deep emotions. I am also here to celebrate with you as you welcome greater joy into your life.
I am LGBTQIA+ allied and BIPOC-allied. I am likely to be a good fit for you if you are someone who likes a balance of nurturing compassion and direct communication, working through the reality of systemic and individual obstacles in your life.

You are not alone.
In Oregon, 1 in 16 children will experience the death of a sibling or parent by the age of 18 (JAG Institute, 2022). Groups like these allow folks with this similar experience to find each other, share, and listen in a safe and comfortable space.
Teen Grief Group
Connect with others who get it.
Family Member Death Loss
Curated specifically for teens who have lost a close family member.
This group is considered a "process group" meaning that it is not just a peer support group (which also have their place!), but rather facilitated by a licensed counselor with years of personal and professional experience holding space for and supporting teens and young adults who have lost someone significant in their life.
Healthy coping skills, Mindfulness and Art sprinkled throughout.
Time to Share & Listen.
In-person (*Masks & COVID vaccines required*) with option to have group sessions online as needed, pending COVID conditions.
Group Meets: TBD
Time: 6:30 -7:45pm
Cost: $45/session X 8 sessions= $360 total

I am proud to be a certified Pathfinders Provider from training with Judi's House, a wonderful nonprofit (in Denver, CO) similar to the Dougy Center in Portland.

We'll see what I can do for you! Maybe form a group around your experience, or maybe individual support will be helpful.
NEW! In the Media
Listen: Up-Level Your Life: "EMDR and Trauma Responses (that we all experience!): A Conversation with Maren Corbly" (2023)
Discussing an overview of our nervous system responses to jarring or disturbing experiences and how EMDR supports in integrating new understandings and getting "un-stuck" with Mindy Duff.
Reflecting on grief as it relates to the anniversary of the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdown in the US.
Connecting with therapist Ruby Falk, LPCC regarding personal narratives on parental bereavement and sudden death losses.
*Content warning: Sudden Parental Death Loss. Please note that this podcast interview contains both information regarding Maren's professional view on grief and her personal experience of grief. Some folks do not like knowing personal details about their therapists' losses, and others find that they like to have a therapist with whom they can relate. Decide which camp you fall into and choose if listening to this episode is right for you.
Good Faith Estimate: No Surprises Act
“Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges”
Under the No Surprises Act
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or contact Maren Corbly, LPC at the provided phone number.
