About Me

I have been a Social Worker for 20 years working with men and women with all types of concerns for their ability to be successful in this life. If you feel sad or are depressed, anxious, angry, misfit or have parenting problems, career challenges, or are transitioning into a new phase of life that has you questioning who you are, let's talk about it. If you have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse I will help you regain your strength to move to a better place.

My counseling style is conversational and interactive. I will help you find the answers that you have to better your life and how you feel about yourself. I believe in treating everyone with kindness, respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and motivational interviewing. We will plan treatment to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to look directly in the mirror at yourself and make the changes that will take you to a happier, more fulfilling life. I will support and empower you to take the path of your choice to the goals that you have always had.

Let's talk!

Marjorie "Mia" Gentry is the best in my eyes don't really know what I would do without the guidance and help that she brings to our sessions. I can say that I am very happy to say that I am better now than i was before I had her help. So thank for all you do.

Absolutely love my sessions with Mia, she truly listens to me and understands / empathizes with what I've been going through. I feel comfortable opening up to her and being vulnerable / diving into deeper topics with her. She's really been helping me be the best 'me' that I can be. 10/10, would recommend to anyone.

I met Mia at the most challenging time I have faced so far in my life. In our first session, I told her I just needed someone in my corner because I had no one and she really did that for me. She validated my feelings, which was something I was not used to and it was such a relief. She helped me think and talk about my own feelings for the first time in a long time. I always feel a sense of hope after my sessions with her.

Mia has been wonderful. I've had several therapists before that helped me through things, but Mia has been by far the most helpful and supportive. She has a lot of empathy, and knows when to push back if something sounds wrong. I would have no qualms recommending her to anyone I know and love.

Mia is a highly competent, kind, caring, straight talking therapist that has been a great help to me.

Mia is an excellent therapist, has surely a lot of experience and can provide the needed support, right for you. I highly recommend Mia if you look for someone with experience, knowledge, and a very soft and sweet approach. In the "roulette" of being assigned a therapist I been blessed to have been matched with Mia. If you are reading this, it means you been also lucky. Don't miss the chance to work with her.

she made and taught me how to be courageous!
Courage to move on, Courage to let life surprise you if you only make the right choices. Courage to be open to new experience and let things happen, Courage to say YES I'm gonna change this and she will show you how to do it.

I can't belief how her advices changed my life in such a way with only 3x 45 minutes therapy session. Thanks Mia! ❤️

Mia is extremely warm and attentive to details. She’s helped me make discoveries that I wouldn’t have seen on my own.

Absolutely recommend! She helps me see things in clarity and perspective. As well as showing understanding to events in life and confirms your beliefs and feelings from experiences aren’t always wrong. I already feel a growth within myself.

Mia was a fantastic therapist. We only spoke for a for a few months (maybe 5 sessions?), but she impacted me in a big way. She is very kind and even funny! Was a good match for me, at least.

Written by K.A. on Feb 10, 2022 after therapy with Marjorie "Mia" for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and adhd

Thank you for talking to me and being honest when I needed it. It's easy for someone to just say that it's going to be okay, but you encouraged me to do things out of my comfort zone. I appreciate it and I will be back in the future!

Mia is great! We’ve been meeting together for a few months now and I feel like she really listens and understands me as a person. She challenges my thinking and encourages me to do things outside my comfort zone. I look forward to our sessions every time!

Written by C.H. on Jan 08, 2022 after therapy with Marjorie "Mia" for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and anger management

I’ve only had one session so far with Mia but in that short time I felt incredibly comfortable and at ease, she allowed me to speak and really listened, giving me advice (which I’ve never had from therapy before)

Written by C.A. on Nov 12, 2021 after therapy with Marjorie "Mia" for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

I was in a very low point and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to see Mia. Mia is a very kind and patient listener, and she offers substantive feedback that is perceptive and helpful. I felt at ease sharing my innermost thoughts and feelings and never felt judged or uncomfortable.

she was being nice and knows how to call you out in a nice way that it helps you to be self aware.

Mia is a beautiful soul. My first session I can sense straight away that she recognized my struggle and acknowledged my humanity and my need for answers. She has been an extraordinary source of wisdom, understanding and joy ever since I started with her.

I cannot express enough gratitude I have for her and how she has made sense of some of the chaos in my life. Thank you so much for existing Mia.

I recommend her with utmost confidence! Mia is fantastic.

I have not been working with Mia for too long yet however I feel confident in her ability to better my life and get me in a more positive and healthy mindset since I already. She's very responsive and interactive throughout our time between video calls and is able to get me thinking about things at a deeper level.
