HI LMHC MHC-798
Marissa is wonderful. She listens and askes thoughtful questions or offers sage commentary to help me see the woods instead of just the trees. Perspective. I have had several "ah ha" moments after speaking with her. It has benefited me enormously, in very stressful circumstances, to have someone help me navigate my way - in the way best for me - to manage with the changes that life ultimately brings to us all. Thank you Marissa.

Marissa has incredible patience and insight that has helped me so far.
She actually works with me on my problems along with being there for me. I don't need a "yes" person and we talk through what I am going through which is EXACTLY what I need right now.
Did I mention she has incredible patience?

She is very nice and patient with me even though I may get distracted or forget what she said. I strongly recommend her.
