About me

Your personal growth and your well-being are important! I am so glad that you are willing to take the first step by seeking out a licensed therapist to help you on this journey!

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a MS in Health and an MA in Counseling with more than twenty years teaching experience in the areas of health and human sexuality. For nearly thirty years while working for a non-profit agency, I aided individuals between the ages of 18 and 50 as they faced major life changes and role adjustments. If you are seeking clarity in some areas of your life, if you want to learn new techniques to cope with difficult situations, or if you'd like to focus on personal growth~ counseling is a positive choice! I utilize evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavior therapy, solution focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. I have helped those facing adjustment disorders, dealing with chronic stress, struggling with relationship challenges and coping with both anxiety and depression.

Throughout my career, I have been dedicated to supporting and encouraging individuals as they address concerns, build on their strengths, and reach their goals. I treat everyone with sensitivity, compassion, and respect. My response time for initial first contact is within 24 hours of request and live sessions are available Monday through Friday between 9am and 3pm. I look forward to working with you!

Marsha is wonderful to work with. She provides a listening ear and solid ideas on mitigating issues with communication between my Husband and I. Marsha also made sure I knew we could message throughout the week, not only on our scheduled session days. Thank you Marsha.
