About Me

Hello! My name is Marissa White and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). I work with individuals who have a wide range of concerns including trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, family relations issues, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders. I combine different therapeutic approaches based on client's presenting concerns, goals, and motivation, such as, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), brief therapy, mindfulness, client-centered, solution-focused therapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
Life's challenges can be overwhelming. My goal is to provide a safe environment for my clients to speak openly about life and stressors. As my client, we will begin services where you are, and together, I will help you explore, develop, and create sense of balance as you learn, grow, and make positive changes that can result in a more fulfilling life.
I look forward to working with you.

Marissa has been very patient with me. I always feel like she is actively listening and holding a safe space for me to land when I feel like the world around me is crumbling. She was able to help me dig deep and see below the surface of my trauma, triggers, and anxiety and helped me gain a better understanding and awareness of my emotions. No matter the day or what I was going through I always felt seen and heard by Marissa.

Every time I cannot wait to talk with Marissa. After the therapy I always feel good. She helps me not to be anxious about everything. She supports and asks the right questions, which I've never thought about. She helps to control my thoughts and to stay positive. She's nice, kind and she likes to joke, I like that. I really appreciate Marissa's work.

Marissa is great - she really listens to me, she draws out good conclusions, and she helps me understand what it is that I'm saying or thinking well before I really get it myself. She is kind and compassionate and funny, and she is really helping me find a place in my life and some understanding of where I'm at emotionally.

I've met with several therapists in my life, and feel that Marissa is the first to actually help me deal with the trauma I've experienced. Her insights and tools to identify the stressors in my daily life have given me a new insight into my experience. I honestly don't know what I would have done if I hadn't been connected to her.

Marissa is an excellent therapist I've really enjoyed working with her thus far.

Written on Feb 15, 2022 after therapy with Marissa for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Marissa has helped me through the childhood traumas that had become habits and were stopping me from moving forward in life. She helped me change my beliefs and let go of my self-sabotaging mantras. She is very empathetic, professional and an expert in her domain. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has been through tough times and doesn't know how to process them to move forward with peace.
