Hi, I'm Marjorie. I provide collaborative, relational therapy to children, teens and adults. I believe in the power of healing through relationships. Through sitting, talking or playing together, I will support you to explore what is underneath and creatively uncover ways to move through, heal, and grow. I provide space to uncover and hold the multiple parts of yourself and your identities within the context of the world we live in. I prioritize exploring the ways systemic stress, harm, and trauma impact those with marginalized identities.

Although pain is a human experience, it often has the power to alienate us from ourselves and others. Perhaps you’re in the midst of relational distress, trying to make sense of systemic oppression, grieving the loss of a loved one or replaying past traumas. Whatever you carry, I am honored to walk with you in re-imagining a life where pain does not hold the final word in dictating who you are or where you want to go. My past clinical experience has focused on working with diverse individuals who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, relationship and identity issues. I specialize in working with BIPOC clients.

I love working with teens, younger and middle-aged adults, and males from different populations and cultural backgrounds who are going through difficult life changes such as independence exploration, career path discovery, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. I believe healing takes place in a safe and supportive environment where individuals can be their true selves. The way I do therapy is based on the value of learning “Once we learn something you can’t unlearn it”, and growth “by learning what skills you have or want to learn to become your true self”.

We've all heard the saying: communication is key. But when we have feelings for someone, critical conversations can be hard to start. Our minds go blank, we become hyper-focused on our partner, and leaving the room can feel like the safest option. I work with individuals to help them strengthen communication and explore a deeper, healthier connection in their relationships.

Often by the time a client reaches me, they have needed help for a long time. Many are struggling to manage distress, are caught in unhelpful thinking patterns, and find that their problems are linked with dissatisfaction in their relationships. Some feel disconnected even from people they know well. Often, people try to cope with these problems by using substances, distracting with television, or engaging in other unhealthy behaviors that they want to stop but can't figure out how. The first step in our therapy is to get clarity about what the main problems really are, and to identify therapy goals.

Counseling can be helpful as families may find themselves in need of support, resources and a safe place to share thoughts and feelings related to parenthood. Having previously worked as a child and family counselor I am able to offer unique insights into parenting.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
