About me

Hi! My name is Marissa Kent and I am a licensed professional counselor in the states of Mississippi and Louisiana. I have over a decade's worth of experience in the mental health field, the last eight of those years working with various populations as a counselor/therapist. I have worked with individuals dealing with a range of concerns and have the most experience with depression, anxiety and stress, anger management, and relationship issues.

I got into the field of counseling because I love helping people. There are few things better than seeing someone reach a goal or fulfill their potential. I believe in treating people with respect and getting to know their story. It helps me gain a deeper understanding for who they are, the family and cultural values, beliefs, and traditions they hold dear, and the goals they would like to achieve in counseling. My approach in counseling is an eclectic mix that primarily combines cognitive behavioral and person-centered techniques, but the specifics of how I work with each individual is as unique as the individual.

I realize that it can be challenging to tackle some of life's concerns head-on, so my goal is to empower you by highlighting the strengths you already possess and give you additional tools needed to accomplish your goals. Congratulations on taking the first step! I look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Marissa Kent. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Marissa is professional and personable. She allows me to problem solve independently and use the tools we’ve developed over the years to tackle hard problems with her guidance. I’ve been seeing her on and off for almost 5 years. I can see how I’ve grown and found a more powerful voice. I will continue to use Better Help and Marissa Kent as long as she’s on this platform.
