I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Pennsylvania with 20 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with coping with grief and loss, the impact of a medical diagnosis and parenting issues. I have worked with children and families in a medical setting for over 20 years. I have also worked closely with individuals and families who have been touched by cancer. I believe in treating everyone with compassion and respect. I believe you are the expert of your life. We are all unique and have our own strengths.
My approach is client centered, strength based, and solution focused. I strongly believe that we all at some point in our lives need someone to talk to. When working with clients I work to make the experience respectful, safe and positive. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can be the most difficult part. I am looking forward to getting to know you.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Depression, Coping with life changes, Adoption and Foster Care, Cancer, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Domestic Violence, Family Problems, Fertility Issues, First Responder Issues, Pregnancy and Childbirth
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy

From the time she responded to my initial inquiry and throughout the entire time I’ve been seeing her (over a year), Marcella has met me where I’m at with compassion, understanding, and actionable knowledge. She’s honest and kind and messages me when I need it. She’s reliable and professional and also feels like a friend. I’ve had multiple therapists over the years, and she is by far the best one I’ve ever had.
