Hi my name is Marilyn and I thank you for taking an interest in my profile. I can understand how daunting it may be to speak to somebody about your inner personal thoughts and feelings, how you truly feel deep down, when your trying to make sense of these thoughts and feelings. But you have made that first step to improving your mental wellbeing. Life has it's ups and downs, the smooth with the rough. However sometimes it may feel like your on pause or stuck and no one understands. Those thoughts ruminate and your feelings can become suppressed. You may even feel numb as you try to navigate through life with these thoughts and feelings that you have not been allowed to express or deny. If your not allowed to express and grow how are you to become that authentic self. I know it may be difficult to picture at times a new way of being. However I can let you know I'm here to listen and help you work through these issues that may have impacted you psychology. I will provide and create a safe space where I hope you will feel safe, listened to and not judged. Building trust in order for the thereupeutic relationship to develop is very important to allow you the freedom to talk about whatever is important to you.

Marilyn is truly amazing. She listens, understands and guides you with such support.
I have been processing grief and would not be where I am today without Marilyn’s help.
I would highly recommend Marilyn and am so grateful for everything she has done.

Marilyn is a fantastic therapist. She has been a phenomenal source of help for me since we started and I highly recommend her. She is understanding, patient, caring and kind but also knows when to push and ask the tough question. Could not be happier with Marilyn and am SO thankful I found her on here.

I have had a wonderful experience using the platform and being matched with one of the best therapist I have shared with in years. I am not new to therapy, I believe wholeheartedly that confiding in a professional is the most rewarding experience for mental health, growth and support during difficult periods in ones life. Marilyn has been exceptional in understanding my complex mannerisms, deep thought style and helping me peel back some, shed, even more of those protective layers that just might not serve me anymore!
I thank her and Betterhelp platform for existing.

Marilyn has been excellent, a huge help to me during a difficult period and genuinely been a big reason I’ve come out the other side feeling much more stable and generally happier. She’s very approachable and open, and builds rapport very easily. She also has an unrivalled ability to articulate how you feel when you don’t know how.
