I am a Licensed Professional Therapist in Wisconsin with over 6 years experience. I started my career working with adolescents and teens in a day treatment at a behavioral health hospital and the past three years I have been in a clinic serving a wide variety of ages with mental health challenges ranging from depression to schizophrenia. I enjoy helping individuals explore themselves and their past to gain insight into their future.
My counseling style is warm and energetic. I am extremely intuitive, straightforward, authentic, and down-to-earth. My clients appreciate my honesty, professionalism, sense of humor, and genuine concern for their well-being. I like my clients to take action and do give out "homework" for them to try out.
I enjoy learning and have attended many training's over the years such as Domestic Violence, Trauma Informed Care, motivational interviewing, and Ethics and Boundaries. I have also received extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Most recently, I was certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR). I am constantly reading and listening to different podcasts to be able to recommend them to my clients as another source of growth for them while we aren't in session.
I believe in daily positive affirmations and continuous validation of my client’s feelings while working towards short-term, attainable goals while in treatment. Therapy happens outside of our sessions. While you are on your journey, I am here to help facilitate your growth. I look forward to learning with you!

Mari was exactly what I needed! She is enthusiastic and relatable. I feel like a much better version of myself after seeing her.
Mari is by far the best counselor I have ever had. She truly listens to what you have to say, gives you feedback on it that really makes you think, as well as gives homework that will help you.
I am more than satisfied with the outcome of our sessions. My mood as really shifted and I’ve prioritized my mental health significantly more. She gets me to talk about things I don’t even realize I need to talk about
Mari is one of the best therapist I’ve had. Tele health is new to me and I honestly she is my second therapist I had with better health as I didn’t personally connect with my first one. She is very passionate in helping people. What I love about her is her fun, caring energy, and she is very active in terms of her style, she gave me homework on the first day! I hope to continue working with Mari as I honestly feel she is my one cheerleaders in life helping me become a better version of me :) Thanks Mari for all you do, so happy I found you on Better Help!
She is very attentive and understanding. She makes me feel at ease to tell her anything.
