About Me

Marriage, divorce, parenting, aging, caregiving, work and health concerns are common stressors in our world today. The mind and body are intertwined and we now know that stress impacts overall health. The process of change from self discovery to self reliance is a stressful endeavor in personal growth. My style focuses on a client's increased awareness and becoming mindful along their path. Solution focused methods address the identified problems for developing an action plan towards well being. An integrated approach supports the person to be fully involved in their own process of healing.

My work as an LMFT spans over 29 years of service to individuals, couples and families with issues in relationships and life transitions. That includes military families, families impacted by substance abuse, and those with chronic health concerns I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in both Oklahoma and New Mexico.

In seeking a therapist, look for a potential to connect with the provider and their style. I would be happy to explore the possibility in providing support through your own growth process.

Written on Dec 08, 2021 after therapy with Marilynn for 11 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I worked with Dr. Parker for 10 months. It is the longest time I have committed to counseling and I am so glad it was with Dr. Parker. She was a great support during this year and helped me grow immensely. Dr. Parker helped me increase my self-confidence, manage my anxiety, and even learn about myself in areas I didn't expect to. She was compassionate, gentle, and empathetic. Always flexible with her schedule as well. I would 100% recommend Dr. Parker and if I find myself seeking BetterHelp services again, I would for sure continue to work with her. Thank you for everything Dr. Parker!

This was my first time trying online counselling and I felt so so lucky that I was matched with Dr Parker. I immediately felt comfortable opening up to Dr Parker from our very first session. We worked together for 2 months and what I had gained from our sessions have definitely been some of the best and most valuable advices and insights into myself I’ve ever received. Her compassion made it so easy for me to be open to explore and understand myself better. For the first time in some years, I feel like I had finally done some proper growing up and growing into my (better) self. For that I am so grateful to have worked with Dr Parker.

I have been seeing Dr. Parker for a month now following the breakdown of my marriage. The advice I am getting has been beyond helpful in making small changes to finding the real me back and in turn that's helping me become a better parent and person. She is always available for a chat and can always manage to squeeze me in for a session last minute, which I really appreciate. I am really glad I joined betterhelp and found Dr. Parker.

I have only had 1 session, with that being said, I really like her and believe that she is capable of assisting me thru these hard times. She listened to me and had some good advice. My only complaint is my schedule is overloaded and impedes coordinating sessions. But that's on me;)

Written on Aug 27, 2020 after therapy with Marilynn for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Dr. Parker has been so insightful during our sessions. I’ve participated in counseling previously, and had a good experience, but even at that I was surprised and pleased with how easy the conversation flowed during our sessions right off the bat. Dr. Parker has a keen ability to ask just the right question or say just the right thing to help me think and explore a situation or attitude. I’ve really enjoyed chatting with her over the past few weeks and I love how warm and compassionate her conversational style is. I’ve had a perfectly lovely experience and would highly recommend the services of the delightful Dr. Parker to anyone and everyone. 11/10. Would let her shrink my brain again.

I felt an instant connection with Dr. Parker. I really decided I was going to be completely transparent in this process and I opened up pretty quickly about the areas in my life I struggle with. She did a great job at sizing up my family problems and being honest about areas I need to improve in. It’s really great to talk to someone about your feelings and to work towards growing as a person... also while being at home!

Work with me!
