Get to Know Me
Mara Thornberg, LPC Associate
Supervised by Greer Swiatek, LPC-S
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in the state of Texas Supervised by Greer Swiatek, a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor. What that means is that I have completed my degree in Professional Counseling, I am provisionally licensed to see clients and I get weekly consultation from a seasoned therapist to ensure my clients are getting the best treatment possible.
I served 4 years in the New Mexico National Guard while obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Family Studies with a minor in Military Science from University of New Mexico (2014). I discovered a lot about myself, and my patterns of connection through these experiences, which improved the quality of my relationships and my overall wellbeing. I knew I wanted to help other people achieve the same increased awareness and quality of life. Upon graduation, I served 4 years on active duty in the U.S. Army at Fort Bragg. Shortly after, I completed my Masters of Arts in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (2019) and became licensed in March of 2020.
I have experience in early childhood development centers, elementary school counseling, residential treatment for teens, clinical treatment and equine assisted psychotherapy with children, teens and adults. I am comfortable working with diverse backgrounds due to my personal, educational and work life experiences.
In my free time, I enjoy crafting, hiking, photography, reading, traveling, working out, and spending time with my family and dogs.
