About Me


Mara Thornberg, MA, LPC, LCPC

I am a Licensed Counselor in the state of Texas (LPC) and Montana (LCPC). 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 health. I knew I wanted to help other people achieve the same increased 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).  

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, traveling, and spending time with horses, my family and dogs.
