Marcus specializes in working with adolescents, adults, and couples who are trying to get things on track. My priority is to relate and put my clients in a nurturing environment to grow. With couples I'm neutral reframing from shaming or judging. My background is in EMS working alongside law enforcement, nurses and doctors, military, and firefighters. I’m empathetic towards individuals frequently in high stress situations. It does not matter how good of therapist I think I am, if my clients aren't benefiting from my services. Morning and afternoon virtual appointments can usually be accommodated within 72 hours. You are not alone!

I’m the best marriage & family counselor in the world! All right, maybe not THE best, but I’m pretty darned good, and I get great outcomes! I believe in teaching people what’s healthy, and then guide them along the way. I call it Applied Human Growth & Potential™ and here’s why. We have so much research about what healthy and effective people do that it makes absolutely no sense to hang out and spend good money with a referee just trying to solve problems. Learn what is healthy and effective, have support in doing it, and you’re good to go! That’s what I do. I make counseling fun and “simply encouraging.” I help people to relax, breathe and smile with the “serious issues” since it leaves more energy to move beyond them. For premarital counseling, marital enhancement, or for help if you’re on the more challenging side of things, then give me a call. And by the way, I work with individuals too.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my professional services. Finding the right therapist is as much about experience as it is about fit. That is why I tell everyone I meet that our first session is not only a chance for me to get to know you, but also for you to get to know me. Having worked with individuals, couples, and families for over ten years, I have learned that life is hard enough as it is. You don't have to continue going it alone. We all could use a little extra help every once in a while, so why not reach out and see what we can accomplish together.

Others may need help adjusting to loss or enduring significant changes in life such as retirement, divorce, changing careers, becoming a new parent, or relocation.

Since 1991 I've delved into C.G. Jung's teachings, engaging in workshops and lectures across Zurich, Switzerland, and South Florida. My focus lies in aiding patients in overcoming psychological obstacles, conflicts, and trauma, utilizing Jungian psychology's profound exploration of the unconscious. This transformative process extends beyond symptom relief, fostering optimal personal growth by deciphering psychological patterns in their entirety rather than as mere disorders or diagnostic codes. A Jungian approach unveils the deepest mysteries of existence and purpose for those facing profound challenges.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
