Marissa will help you identify your innate strengths. She has found this to be the best way to help you with the concerns that led you to researching therapists. Marissa uses values-based, cognitive, and creative techniques to help you start thinking, feeling, and behaving differently to positively change your life.

Marissa works at your pace and tailors interventions to meet your short-term or long-term needs. Marissa will do this by normalizing your experience and helping you find natural coping skills to navigate even the most severe symptoms. She is compassionate, accepting, silly, and direct.

Marissa also uses an intervention called Lifespan Integration to treat trauma. She has observed impressive results using this intervention and is eager to provide this care to you. Equality matters!
