About me

Hello and congratulations on making this important investment in yourself and your future. As the saying goes " the longest journey begins with a single step." Thank you for considering me to support you in your journey.

I am a seasoned Licensed Clinical Social Worker(LCSW) an International Coaching Federation (ICF) certified Professional Coach, and a certified Hypnotherapist through the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT). I have over 40 years of experience as a psychotherapist in a variety of cultures including the Caribbean Region and other diverse areas of the United States. I am a graduate of the renowned Jane Adams School of Social Work at the University of Illinois, Chicago Campus, where I studied various models of psychological approaches including one year post-graduate study with the now international expert in family therapy, Dr. Richard Schwartz, Ph.D.

I provide a safe, comfortable and confidential environment for self discovery and reflection. I work with individuals, couples, and families, with specific expertise in supporting parents in raising proud, resilient and capable children. As a Professional Coach and former international executive, I am also skilled in working with individuals who would like to enhance their career opportunities within their current companies or who are seeking a career transition. I have extensive workplace expertise that include enhanced leadership impact, developing exceptional communication skills, conducting difficult conversations and high impact presentation and influencing skills, to name a few.

I am certified as a Mediation and Mindfulness Facilitator and have been a dedicated teacher and practitioner of meditation for over three decades. I integrate solution-focused, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive therapy, and mindfulness based stress reduction with hypnosis (as indicated) and have a passion for helping my clients set clear goals and create realistic, inspired, and imaginative approaches to the areas of their lives that they want to change. I apply hypnotherapy approaches for habit and behavioral change that includes weight loss, smoking cessation, and anxiety reduction and other unproductive behaviors. My belief is that all humans have the potential to achieve their dreams and passions and have the strengths, both known, and yet to be discovered, to create a rich, full and purposeful life.

I am a long distance, cyclist, a dedicated health enthusiast and a performing musician. I like to incorporate a creative and comprehensive mind-body approach to all of my work. I look forward to the privilege of assisting you in your journey of self-discovery and unimagined potential. Thank you for considering my services.

Marco has been so helpful for me with a family situation that had been quite troubling. His calm demeanor and guiding me towards not getting "hooked" with this family member made so much difference for our relationship. I highly recommend Marco as a therapist.

It was amazing working with Marco. He is a great listener and would hear me out completely before sharing his thoughts with me. I have seen a lot of positive change in me since I started working with him.

I was nervous about talking with a stranger about some of my issues but that quickly faded as Marco is very easy to talk with. He is a great listener and knows just when to chime in with a useful piece of advice. Marco is both professional and friendly. I appreciate how he is open with some of his own experiences. This showed me that he lives by the advice he gives, a quality I think is very important in a councilor. Thanks Marco!
