“Curanderismo is a type of holistic folk medicine traditionally used in Mexican
and Mexican American cultures. Followers of this healing system define disease as
having both biological and spiritual causes and, therefore, utilize curanderos who treat on
three levels—material, spiritual, and mental (Texas State Historical Association, 2015).
These material, spiritual, and mental processes are integrated within healing rituals and
result in a type of insight termed actualization. This actualization results in individual
growth. (Torres and Hicks, 2016)”
Combining the practices of the generations before them with their expertise from a decade of practice in Professional Counseling, Maritza uses energy work, tarot readings, traditional psychotherapy interventions and trauma-informed modalities to help their clients divest from oppression, establish equitable relationships, and understand their emotions, thoughts, and needs.
Maritza has been a helper since 2001, and is committed to justice in the greater world and in personal relationships. You can look up their profile on Inclusive Therapists here.
When they are not performing Curanderismo, Maritza is a writer of fiction and non-fiction, mixed-media artist, member of Fat Bottom Cabaret, and community member of Austin, Texas.
Rates and fee policies are set in line with respect for the skill, expertise, and availability of the practitioner as well as the individual needs of the client. All fees are transparent, flat-rates. No taxes, tips, or add-ons to worry about.
Below, you’ll find both the standard session fees and sliding scale options (subject to approval and availability).
- $200 per 45 minute session
- $400 per double session (90 minutes)
SLIDING SCALE POLICY:
ALL SPOTS FULL AS OF 06/2021
Sliding Scale spots are made available to clients through a simple equation developed through a complex process ensuring that Maritza can sustainably provide an excellent standard of care. You can read more about it in the book Chingale Capitalism. When spots are available, the client chooses a rate to pay per session, coming in regularly (at least once per month), and completes a Sliding Scale contract on Vagaro prior to booking a session. Rates and agreement are revisited every January and July to ensure the safety and comfort of all involved.
Session payments can be made via Venmo, Paypal, Cash app or credit card. All appointments require a card on file to be booked.
Reviews and Testimonials
Ritz’s coaching got me through some of the darkest times of my life. It can be overwhelming when you are trying to heal and recover from years of trauma and/or abuse, and Ritz helped me untangle who I really am from the web of lies that trauma had woven around me, trapping me in place. With Ritz’s help, I’ve become empowered to take the steps I need to in order to heal and move forward in my life. Ritz’s coaching breathed hope into me again when I needed it most, and I wouldn’t be who I am today without her guidance.C.b. – Austin, Texas
Ritz as a coach speaks the truth. Society conditions us to believe lies about who we are, who we should be, and what we are capable of. Ritz doesn’t buy that bullshit, and she knows you don’t want to, either. So she tells the truth. Sometimes that truth can be hard to hear, but it always has been, for me, the words that I need to care well for myself and move forward in action.C.R. – Richmond, Virginia
