Dr. Maria Paredes is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Clinical Supervisor, Certified Eating Disorders Specialist & approved IAEDP
supervisor, and owner of Three Birds Counseling & Clinical Supervision in Greensboro, NC, a group practice that provides services from a trauma- informed, fat-positive, sex-positive, Queer-affirming, & faith-affirming, and social healing lens. Maria teaches adjunct courses in UNC-G’s Counseling department and provides clinical supervision & training to new professionals working toward their licensure as therapists or dietitians. Her areas of specialty include eating disorders in higher weight bodies, Binge Eating Disorder, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, anxiety, trauma, infertility, and pregnancy loss. Maria is mom to 3 young girls and hopes that they will grow to experience the wonder and power of all their bodies have to offer, without believing they must shrink themselves. Apart from training, Maria draws from her own experience of living with PCOS and having grown up with complex trauma and an eating disorder. She believes healing is possible and recovery is worth it and wants YOU to experience it, too.
