LMHC, LPC

About Me

My name is Hugues J Marcelin and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who specializes in helping clients resolving mental health, emotional and behavioral issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, lack of impulse control, grief/loss, low self-esteem, trauma, etc. I have been a Mental Health Therapist since 2013.
My goal as your therapist is to make you feel as comfortable as possible, to share your thoughts and feelings, in a non-judgmental, therapeutic environment. Your success in attaining your short and long term therapy goals will depend on your devotion to successfully complete the steps towards those goals. You should expect to get homework from me on a regular basis which will help you practice the coping skills and strategies that will be discussed during our regular sessions.
Together we will work on your treatment plan which will include your goals, objectives and interventions. Your treatment plan will be tailored to meet your individual and specific needs.
My counseling style is empathetic and interactive and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is my primary approach that I have used in working with individuals, groups, and families.
I look forward to working with you.

Hi, for me, I look forward to my visits w him! I’m continually excited each one bc I feel confident big changes are going happen. Meaning: my past childhood and family are so complex and chaotic and so far we still going over each person and time and the role they play in my past- childhood- and now. But with the questions asked and Amal in between convo, has already brought Hope to the surface. I feel things will magnify once he gets a grip on everyone and time dwn. The next major impact for me.. is that he is hands dwn absolutely the only person that “ListeNs” to me. I am never heard, I’ve never had a voice even when screaming out loud happens. For me..- it’s the greatest gift of all. Thank you

Hugues is the best! He's very empathetic and a great listener. He's very easy to talk to about anything and always makes you feel comfortable talking about any topic whether it is life, work, family, etc. I cannot recommend Hugues enough, he really helped me get out of my own head and see things from a different perspective, while still encouraging me to explore different things I am passionate about. Hugues has changed my life, and I am so grateful to have been able to meet him.

My therapist could not have been a better match for me. In wasn’t sure what to expect at first but over the past year I have grown as a person and learned a lot about myself. Hugues is a good listener and I feel like we have a good connection.

I think it’s unfair to ask for a complete review after only one session. First impression is great.

So grateful

Written by R.U. on Feb 02, 2022 after therapy with Hugues Jean for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and self esteem

Hugues is a great empath, approachable listener and down to earth counselor.

In our time he was always available to listen to my concerns and offer direct, on point advise on how to pick myself up, or deal with my troubles. He speaks from the heart and to the heart, naturally adopts to new situations when they arise and helps you laugh away some of your troubles every session. My best experiences were when I came into a session with a clear need and end goal in mind. Counselling with Hugues works best when you help him to help you.

Written by K.A. on Jan 19, 2022 after therapy with Hugues Jean for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, parenting issues, and bipolar disorder

I have only had a few sessions but I instantly connected with Hugues and always feel so much calmer and positive after speaking to him. Hugues knows exactly where to dig deeper and always makes you feel understood and heard without being judgemental and will put confidence in you to find a way forward. I cannot recommend him enough.

I was initially hesitant to use Betterhelp services. However, being under that care of Hugues has given me the confidence that I need to weather my storm & look forward to positive results. Our weekly conversations always give me new strength to face the upcoming days.

Hugues helped me in a time where I truly felt alone - he met me with understanding and compassion. He is very knowledgeable and works hard to ensure the practice is tailored to you. Very lucky to have crossed paths with him.

Hugues is a fantastic listener. I’ve tried therapy with a couple other counselors, and didn’t think it was effective.
Then I connected with Hugues. He’s kind, caring, he listens, but gives amazing advice and points out patterns/things you may not have noticed yourself. I’m so grateful we have gotten to work together—I feel like I have made a lot of progress with him. Would recommend to anyone hesitant to try therapy.

Thank you Hugues!

Written by S.A. on Mar 01, 2021 after therapy with Hugues Jean for 7 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

As always, I take so much out of my sessions with Hughes. His ability to quickly decipher where I'm at and consistently steer our conversations toward what empowers me has made the world of difference in my life, especially given the isolation of lockdown. Hughes not only encourages me as a teammate, he encourages me to be my own teammate no matter the circumstances so that I can steer myself between sessions. If you're reading this Hughes: thank you for being you and for being my teammate - you make a "Hughes" difference every week

Hugues' patience is next level. Right from the start, he sensed that in order for me to open up, I needed to build trust with him – and he walked alongside me and earned my trust, in my time.

His warmth, honesty and insights have truly allowed me to feel safe and grow in the space that he has facilitated. Even though some of the topics have not been easy for me to uncover, I have never felt unsafe or uncomfortable talking about these with Hugues. Our rapport is strong, and I can only thank him for being so supportive – in many senses of that word.

Tonight will be my 3rd session with Hugues. Our sessions keep varying as my separation/marriage is desolving and so our approaches keep changing from week to week as I had hoped things may change but I was foolish to believe that I could change her mind after 2.5-3.5 years

Hugues is helping me work towards various things to work through this most traumatic emotional time. I look forward to our sessions and appreciate the regular communications that we can reach out and get feedback.
