I work with adolescents, adults and couples interested in reconnecting with their inherent strengths and values. I practice from a Narrative Therapy framework to collaborate with my clients on identifying how systems of power have impacted our sense of self. Together with my clients, we understand which stories you have told yourself, and what influences outside of yourself have impacted those stories. We will work to understand which narratives have been holding you back and which narratives might be helpful in bringing forward to help you reach your goals.

I help couples improve communication, teamwork, understanding, and intimacy.
When you feel like you're spinning your wheels, therapy can provide traction you need to get your life moving forward. Therapy can help you learn how to stop struggling with creative stagnation, worry, self-doubt, lack of motivation, loneliness, homesickness, or the pain of loss. Therapy can help get you unstuck from repeated struggles with yourself and difficulties with others. In our meetings, you and I will work together to identify roadblocks that keep holding you back. I will assist you in creating permanent strategies for getting past those roadblocks to build a more complete, fulfilling, dynamic, and purposeful life.

Maybe you are feeling weighed down by life's stressors, like it is impossible to be a woman in today's society, struggling to navigate the transition to motherhood, overcome with sadness, and hopeless about how to take care of yourself, your relationship, or your child. If you are searching for holistic support in embodying your role as a mother, or mood management during pregnancy and post-partum, I can help.

My areas of expertise include PTSD + complex trauma, grief, relationships (whether it's the relationship you have with yourself or with the people in your orbit), intimate partner violence and individuals with foster/adoption history.
Do you have a difficult time imagining what safety looks like? Do you feel like there's a disconnect that keeps you from the truest parts of yourself? If you've found your way here, it's likely because you're carrying a burden that's become too heavy to bear alone. Trauma, grief, and attachment wounds are not just about the past - it shows up in your body, in the relationships that you have with yourself and others, and shapes the lens in which you view the world. Here, you'll find a safe space to untangle the complexities of your experiences so that you can focus on rebuilding the sense of control and peace you deserve.

Much of my background is in working with people who have experienced sexualized and/or interpersonal violence, are coping with health conditions (chronic pain, HIV, reproductive issues), have been incarcerated, are healthcare professionals (physicians, residents, nurses), are LGBTQ+, as well as couples (of all orientations and relationship structures).
Hi there, I'm Dr. Marina Costanzo. It can be intimidating to enter (or re-enter) therapy with someone new, and face areas of our lives that we’ve been feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, shameful, stressed, or fearful about. I have a warm and non-judgmental approach to therapy, and hope to facilitate compassion, engagement, and empowerment. I will collaborate with you to provide effective tools for coping in the present, opportunities to safely explore the past, and to build hope, satisfaction, and joy for your future. I value working with clients facing all kinds of difficulties, from everyday stressors to larger concerns.

If you are worried about your relationship, then it might be time for some extra help. Beneath unhealthy communication patterns, there is much self-discovery to be had. But couples therapy is not easy and my style is not for the faint of heart. It will take extensive energy and patience, to unlearn your patterns and make relational repairs, while allowing your partner the same. If you are truly motivated and ready for the legwork, I am ready to guide you and your partner with gentle leadership, education, tools, and exercises (both in and outside of session.) I am also here to help you see your blind spots and vulnerabilities.

My specialties are: Drug and Alcohol Addiction, Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Couples Therapy, Multicultural and LGBTQ+ Issues, Creativity, Severe Mental Illness and Career Development.
We all know that fairy tale endings are rare. For the majority of us, the real challenge is figuring out what happiness means to us. From a young age, we are bombarded with ideas of what it should be, but it's up to us to determine our own meaning. It's not easy - we're often influenced by family, friends, education, and society in our pursuit of happiness. But ultimately, it takes bravery and accountability to face each day and make choices for our own well-being.

Do you ever struggle with feeling disconnected, like you don't fit in, or like you're watching the world happen around you from the outside in?

Trauma cuts deep. It has the ability to knock the wind out of you and throw you off course. It can creep up gradually, or sometimes feel as though it strikes all at once. The process of finding someone that you trust to work with you in some of your most tender moments can be incredibly intimidating. I would be honored to talk with you and see if we would be a good match in your process of healing.
