About me

Times have certainly been taking a toll on all of us recently, haven't they? If you've been feeling the strain, are noticing changes in your mood, or are experiencing difficulties with your relationships, work, or family life, I'm here to help. The world is changing, and it can be difficult and scary to change along with it. When you are going through something, it can be easy to get lost in it. Together, we can navigate through what you're experiencing. Therapy helps you to find the strengths, tools and resources for whatever your experiences may be. As a therapist, I can help encourage you to use those skills, teach you new ones, and help you find the peace you’re looking for.

I am a Florida licensed mental health counselor with twelve years experience working with all ages. Although I am credentialed and trained to treat many issues, I have worked most closely with: Family members and friends of those in addiction (including adult children of alcoholics), adults with histories of childhood trauma and/or abuse, and those experiencing difficulties with major life changes and transitions. Which of these hits home for you? Let’s chat more about your experience, and come up with a roadmap that takes you to your ultimate destination.

Greats insight, great listener, we didn’t work together for long, but those few sessions always helped!

Best therapist I have found after over a decade in and out of therapy. I feel heard, understood, and comfortable. Life is better and more manageable with Marisa.

Marisa Knight is a lovely human with a wonderful amount of knowledge. She challenges my old bad habits and always encourages growth and awareness! I've learned more about myself in the last 2 months through her than I've learned in the last 3 years through general life. I'm finally starting to understand who I am and where I want to be with the help of Marisa, and that's something I'll forever be grateful for!

Marisa is so easy to talk to. While being friendly and helpful she is also extremely professional. I wanted a healthy challenge of processing and delving in to my traumas and Marisa provides just that in an extremely constructive way.

Written on Aug 12, 2022 after therapy with Marisa for 5 months on issues concerning grief

My time with Marisa has been invaluable. Being able to work with past issues and my current situation is highly therapeutic. I am getting traction in areas of my life that I was not for 20 years. I have someone I can trust and talk to about anything and not worry about how I feel or what I say. My time with her has been some of the most valuable time I have ever spent, and I could not imagine where I would be without her.

Marisa is fantastic. I've never felt more at ease or comfortable with a therapist until her. She's patient and highly receptive to what's going on with me even when my mouth is moving faster than my mind. She is the best!

I had quite a few negative things happen all at once and Marisa has helped my untangle them so I can deal with them individually, but also see how they are connected. She is very kind, patient, and helps redirect me when I get a little lost in my thoughts.

Ms. Knight has been an excellent help to me. She has been attentive and insightful, providing me with the tools and resources to help better myself.
