I have been an elementary teacher (12 years), and a therapist for over 25 years. During this time, I have gained a vast knowledge in working with families and individuals. It is important to understand that we are all products of a particular family system and the influence that family has/had on our lives. Helping clients to make sense of their purpose in life and finding the optimum way to go about living, is paramount to me!
I am certified in TF-CBT therapy, which is helping those who have experienced sexual, physical, and emotional trauma to move past the devastating effects on their life. I also utilize cognitive behavioral approaches such as Choice Theory (William Glasser), REBT (Albert Ellis), and other therapeutic modalities to assist a client in understanding how their choices and thinking can change their daily lives.
My personal philosophy is that we become a therapeutic alliance together to problem solve and to gain insights into what is not working in your life, and then work collaboratively together to find effective change.
I also believe that building meaningful relationships in life can make life rewarding for anyone, and that it is possible to achieve this with guidance and effort.
Thankfully, I have been blessed in the ability to work with men, women, and children from all walks of life, cultures, and ages. They have given more to me than I ever was able to return to them. I like to believe that I can learn and grow each day from every interaction I am blessed to have with others. I'm hoping it will be you!

Marshall’s sound experience helped him identifying quickly how to best work with me. I initially contacted Better Help for short term support on a specific area of concern I had. Marshall helped me identifying what I was struggling with.
I then decided to continue working with Marshall over a few months and benefiting further from his perspicacious analyses. Also, while I value psychotherapy and psychology, my faith is important to me and I wanted to be reassured nothing would be conflicting with my values. Marshall is not only respectful but very professional, which helps me growing.
Marshall is always there! Whenever I’m feeling down any time of the day, I know that Marshall will be there for me to support me... He’s very patient with me, and helps me to try and become the best version of myself with techniques and affirmations! I’m so glad I have him as my therapist.
