June Thornton-Marsh

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

Congratulation on taking a most challenging first step- reaching out and being willing to create change. I believe the primary goal of therapy is increased self-awareness of what you are thinking and feeling and then taking steps to act on your most positive thoughts and positive emotions. You may have thoughts and emotions that you are unconscious of, that you don't understand or that you believe that you can't change. Those perceptions, especially if they are fed by negative thoughts and negative emotions, can lead you to live a life that may be disempowering- causing painful experiences in your romantic, social, work and/or family relationships and ultimately preventing you from sharing your authentic self and sharing who you are meant to be in the world. I believe that you can change the way you think about yourself and the way you feel about yourself which then leads to taking action based on those more empowered thoughts and emotions.

My approach to therapy is to teach you how to change the negative thoughts and negative emotions you have and the disempowering ways that you behave as a result. . Curious about yourself? Interested in changing the difficulties in your life? Want a more fulfilling life? If so, I can help you explore, confront and shift the thoughts and emotions that stand in the way of having a life you love. For example, I believe a powerful block that stands in the way of harnessing the power in one's life is consolidated in energy that is fear-based. Emotions and thoughts that are fear-based- regret, jealousy, anger, sadness, resentment, shame, etc. are at the core of choices that lead one down a painful path. By exploring the ways that fear-based thoughts and fear-based emotions show up and challenging/changing fear, will lead you towards a life that is more empowered and loving.

I focus on change in your life now and moving forward. I do not focus much on your past since you can not change that. Though your past is important for the lessons learned, your present has the power to shape your life now.

I am both a counselor and a coach. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as one of the primary ways to shift and challenge negative thoughts and emotions.

Written by G.R. on Sep 09, 2020 after counseling with June for 3 weeks

June was so great to talk to and picked up on so many things. She really was trying to make sure I understood and that I could see the work that was happening and know how to identify problematic behavior.

Written by I.S. on Sep 02, 2020 after counseling with June for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

June is the most helpful and most insightful counselor I have ever met with. She knows how to ask questions that made me dig deep and how to actually engage rather than letting me just talk until I had nothing left to say. She is amazingly helpful. Thank you!

Written by J.A. on Aug 31, 2020 after counseling with June for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, anger management, compassion fatigue, and adhd

June is extremely adept at what she does. I found her to be everything I hoped to find in a therapist. Excellent listener, but doesn't leave me to ramble into infinity. Great at helping me find the core of the issue I'm exploring. She is organized and methodical, yet adaptable and intuitive. Professional and personable, she seems like a trusted friend extremely quickly, without seeming eager or intrusive at all.
Truly the best therapist I've worked with and I hope to work with her again.

She re-assured me and helped me remain positive through discussing my issues, and I did not feel like I was "wrong", but instead gently realized the things I need to work on.

I feel confident that if I have other problems, I can talk to her about them.
