Written by J.O. on Jan 13, 2022 after therapy with Marsha for 6 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Marsha helped me moved through a huge moment in my life, one that I hadn't even realized I was going to go through with. I am extremely impressed with her balance of professionalism and compassion. Her encouraging nature helped me to find the confidence I needed, and her suggestions were always gently delivered. Over the several months we worked together, I learned several new and different ways of acknowledging, managing, and processing my anxiety. The tools I have developed will serve me well moving forward, and I am very grateful to Marsha.

Marsha is thoughtful and patient during our sessions. Not only does she take her time in her responses but she lets me formulate my own. I never feel rushed to just spit out my immediate thoughts. I get to process in real time, and she guides me to the right answers without pushing her own agenda/ideas down my throat.

Marsha was a fantastic counselor for me. I found her incredibly easy and comfortable to talk to. When she asked questions I was never rushed for an answer, she never interrupted me and was very considerate and consistent. She helped me understand my issues a lot better and helped me deal with them appropriately. She was great at recognizing my improvements and setbacks and would 100% recommend her to friends and will return to her counseling when I next need therapy
