About Me

I believe psychotherapy is a journey of self-discovery, problem solving and emotional recovery. I help my clients to grow and heal from issues with depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues and family adjustments. I support my clients with improving social and emotionl functioning and increasing interpersonal skills while developing positive and solution-focused goals for creating a more fullfilling and healthy lifestyle. If you are exploring ways to achieve a more balanced way of managing the everyday stressors and challenges in life, the services I provide may benefit you.

Dr. Markelle Handy is very supportive and makes gentle recommendations. She has recommended some techniques to improve my life, and she has helped get me on track to tackle some hard things. I love being able to type instead of show up for a therapy session. I think Dr. Markelle Handy is great.
