Mary Meador, MD
"Navigating the river of life is a complex, and
at times, difficult task. My goal is to
help individuals and couples learn to be curious about what may seem daunting, understand
difficulties are an opportunity to grow and heal, and view themselves with
unlimited capacity. It is a privilege and my passion to do this work."
As a family
physician deeply committed to both mental and physical health care, Dr. Mary
Meador enjoys helping people discover and appreciate the unique way we each
experience life. She believes in the indivisible nature of the mind, the
body and relationships.
Drawing on the
field on Interpersonal Neurobiology, Mary teaches people to understand their inner lives with more clarity, as well as how to enhance relationships with others. This work, with practice, actually changes the physical structure of our brain, allowing us to see the internal workings of our own minds and get off the
autopilot of ingrained behaviors and habitual responses.
Learning and accepting
that we all view the world from a deeply personal perspective is a
transformative process. Mary helps individuals and couples shift their
focus away from being “right” and toward being “in relationship” with their
families, their friends, their coworkers, as well as themselves.
Mary’s interest in Imago Relationship Therapy grew out of her desire to teach relationship skills, allowing for more centered and intentional ways of interacting with ourselves and with others. She became certified as an Imago Relationship Therapist in 2005 and as an Imago Workshop Presenter in 2011.
Dr. Meador is a
Board Certified Family Physician and practiced primary care for over twelve
years. In 2002, she began to limit her practice to mental health therapy,
a natural transition that grew out of recognizing the inseparable connection
between our physical and mental health. In working with individuals, she focuses
on helping people to gain insight and understanding of the unique way each of
us experiences the world. She is also able to evaluate and prescribe
medication for depression and anxiety, if necessary.
