Marsha is very attentive and caring, and has been a strong cheerleader for me through several life transitions. Marsha’s expertise has been incredibly helpful in learning to manage my anxiety and establish healthier coping mechanisms.

I absolutely adore working with Marsha, I look forward to our sessions each week, and it feels so nice to have someone who I can trust (and have a good laugh with!) I feel relaxed, opened and ready to grow /listen. So glad I was paired with Marsha!

I didn’t know what to expect when I first signed up for BetterHelp. I had never done any form of therapy/counseling and got matched to Marsha after completing the registration. She has been patient and attentive to my needs and concerns. I’m so grateful to have been matched with her and not have the need to start over with someone else. Thank you, Marsha!

My time with Marsha has been incredible - I feel like she just gets me. She was expertly able to guide me into a more regular schedule of sessions, and I couldn't be more thrilled about the growth I've experienced since starting our work together. She is kind, understanding, and practical; so if you're looking to play a more active role in your healing and understanding, Marsha is the therapist for you!
