I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the State of Ohio with over 25 years of experience working as a social worker. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, medical issues, grief, career challenges as well as alcohol addiction recovery. I also help many people navigate workplace concerns.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, and solution focused counseling. We can tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Sometimes we have issues when we know exactly what to do and other times we may feel "stuck" in how to prevail over our concerns. Reaching out to somebody for guidance and navigation through these obstacles can be the very change we need to see the results we either hope for or have the support in order restore balance in our lives with changes we cannot control.
I view my role as helping you gain skills and learn behaviors that will put you on a path to mental wellness and also assist in establishing goals and develop approaches to address emotional stress, shore up skills in coping and communication.
The ability to change and accept is within your grasp whether you are challenged from a loss of a loved one, a struggle with a work situation, a medical problem, weight loss or just generally trying to feel different.
Reach out. Learn. Discover. Decide. Live a meaningful life.
I look forward to working with you!

Marj listens to me. She takes a moment to respond in a way that I will relate to. I feel like she truly cares about me and helping me through my grieving process but also helping me heal through some childhood trama.

Marj is a results-oriented therapist. She has helped me set goals and reach them in a very short time, providing me with tangible "tools" to accomplish this. She has a way of clarifying the reason for my feelings and reactions very subtly and effectively, keeping me focused and on task in a pleasant, conversational way. I've always felt her genuine concern for me and my emotional wellness, while helping me face the realities in my situation. In a short period of time, Marj has helped me learn to cope with negative and unhealthy thoughts and responses to situations that I have developed over a lifetime.

Marj is unlike any therapist I’ve had. She’s patient, uplifting, and always seems to find a way to open up new possibilities to healing. I’ve never felt judged and she’s an amazing listener. Truthfully one of the best people I’ve met.
