About Me

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” -A.A. Mine

Thanks for clicking on my page! Often in the hectic pace of everyday life we may not feel there is time to address things we are currently facing. Counseling is an excellent way to designate a time, with the assistance of an unbiased professional, to assist you in reaching your goals. The goal of therapy is to feel good, not only about yourself, but the life you are living. Life can get complicated, so having someone in your corner can be helpful. Therapy also allows one to view things through a different lens. This new perspective can get us to make changes, or view things differently, which can be key to making long-term changes or impact.

I view counseling is a collaborative, dynamic process, based on the therapeutic alliance between therapist and client. Through careful assessment of client concerns, I tailor the therapeutic approach to the specific needs of each individual. My approach to counseling is both direct yet warm and non judgmental with every client. I am gentle in my approach to make sure the client feels heard and validated. I employ a variety of diverse therapeutic approaches. These techniques include Person-Centered, CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, DBT, MI. My personal philosophy is based on the idea that counseling is most effective with genuine, honest, and open communication. I believe we are all worthy of respect and that is important in the counseling relationship. I hope to dive deeper into what is going on in your life, and get you back on track. Hopefully you will leave each session feeling better and with some new tools and workable takeaways. I am excited to be with Betterhelp to begin working with those in need of healing. When I am not in session, I like to fill free time with family & friends. I love exploring the outdoors, staying active (with spin, weightlifting & yoga) and traveling. I have a passion for volunteering with at risk populations in my city and am an avid animal rescuer/advocate.

You have made a big first step in your journey, I look forward to hearing from you!

Feel free to contact me below to set up your first session, take care!

Marcy is incredibly helpful, and shows constantly that her #1 goal is to help you get better. 2020 has been rough for many, but Marcy has helped me immensely to get through the bulk of it, while also helping me move on past trauma. 10/10 in my books!

There aren't words to describe how much Marcy is helping me in my life right now. I'd recommend her to everyone I know. She makes me feel like I'm getting somewhere and that one day soon I will be in full control of my happiness. She's an absolute lifesaver.

I absolutely love Marcy! She's so easy to talk to and share with, and is compassionate, supportive, and gentle in her approach. She's encouraged me in some changes I've been wanting to make in my life, and I've had an overwhelmingly positive experience working with her. I would happily recommend Marcy to anyone!
