Hello, my name is Marie. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Maine and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State. I attended Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon and graduated with my M.A. in Counseling in 2017.
My approach to therapy is to adapt therapies that are best aligned to the specific needs of the client. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Person-centered Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.
I view counseling as a team effort where the client and counselor agree to work together to help you, the client, to recognize strengths, identify needs, understand conflicts, discover new options, set personal development goals, and make informed choices.
It takes courage to seek counseling to work on personal issues. I believe that through counseling hope and healing can be experienced. I have personally benefited from counseling and would consider it an honor to assist you on your journey to hope and healing.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Control Issues, Forgiveness, Life Purpose, Post-traumatic Stress
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Existential Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy
