Marquita has been absolutely amazing to work with. As a pansexual polyamorous individual I’ve found it hard to find therapists who “get” me. Marquita is always warm and welcoming and allows me to fully be my most authentic self while working through my issues at home, in my work, and with family. I’d highly recommend her!

Written on Apr 01, 2024 after therapy with Marquita for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Marquita Wooley helped me learn some techniques to cope with my almost daily paranoia. I learned that sometimes it’s good to be alert and cautious, but other times it’s okay to let your guard down.

While I have just started meeting with Marquita, it feels as though we have been paired for forever! Her attention to detail and engagement are IMPECCABLE. She makes you feel completely safe while also getting down to the nitty gritty in terms of what you want to accomplish in therapy. I am beyond excited to continue working with her and am confident in the person I’ll become for doing so.
