About me

I am licensed in Oklahoma with 12 years of professional work experience: LPC06230. I am also licensed in Idaho: LCPC-8735. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, & coping with grief and loss. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I offer a safe space for those wanting an inclusive & open-minded counselor. My practice specializes in treating individuals using evidence based and goal directed services. I also engage clients in using mindfulness techniques, narrative therapy, CBT, and a mindfulness/emotional regulation technique I developed called the "Control Center".

I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your healing journey.

Working with Marie has been wonderful. She is a very empathetic and caring therapist. She always encourages me to stand my ground and care for myself. Marie is great at modeling confidence and self-acceptance, very encouraging and after just a few weeks, has greatly helped with my self-esteem. The intensity of inner child work has a softer edge thanks to Marie’s consistent care and support. I’m so grateful for the noticeable changes I’m making since starting to work with her and I’m excited to be free of more baggage I’ve carried around for too long.

Marie is simply amazing. I'm stubborn and hard headed, and she still finds a way to be patient and get through to me. She's consistent and actually makes you her center of attention. I'd happily recommend her to anyone

Marie was amazing! I loved walking through the control center with her and the inner child work we worked on.

I am grateful for Marie's advice, breathing exercise techniques, practicing control centers and prayers. I love having a Christian therapist who listens and cares for my well-being.

Before my sessions with Marie I was in a tough place dealing with OCD. Most days I'd be so stuck in my own negative thoughts spiraling out of control leaving me confused and honestly scared. Things are getting much better! I still have moments when I get stuck like before but they are much less frequent and Marie is helping me learn how to get through it. I am very grateful to have been matched with Marie as my therapist. She is warm and kind. You can feel it during the sessions and when reading her reviews.

Marie is doing a great job with helping me to process my trauma, and teaching me skills to apply to my life, and difficult situations. I feel in many ways she goes above and beyond, and follows through on providing me with the tools/worksheets we discussed. She is very easy to talk to, and listens well to my concerns.
