I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Michigan with over 17 years of experience working as a Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression and anxiety. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to reach out for assistance from others. I am ready to assist you when you are ready to take the first step towards supporting your goal for a view of life with hope and new changes.
I look forward to working with you!

I got lucky with her as my first and only therapist! Love her very much!!
Marcella is a very kind and warm therapist! Shes extremely knowledgeable with her expertise and knows how to help you tackle your issues. Shes also very capable to adjust her methods to suit your needs and approach to help you achieve the best results in becoming a better you! As someone who is very timid and meek with very bad social anxiety, it might be scary at first- especially if it's your first time in therapy. But I assure that whoever is in Marcella's care, that they're in good hands. Shes supportive, patient, and she won't judge you even for your ugliest feelings. You really just got to let her know your specific needs in how to work with you- whether to be up front or gentle. To be honest, after working with Marcella for a while, it always feels like a warm, big hug in the end! To get better really requires the effort to change, and Marcella definitely wants the best for you!
