I would be delighted to explore with you whatever brings you to therapy at this time in your life. If you are struggling with a life transition, stress, or symptoms of depression or anxiety, we can work together with curiosity and compassion to help you develop the skills necessary to tolerate difficult emotions and situations in the present moment while helping you reconnect to your own vitality. Though my approach is eclectic, it is informed by Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), insight oriented meditation, interpersonal neurobiology, self compassion, and various forms of expressive/movement based therapies

I specialize in applying mindfulness and attachment theory to anxiety, attention issues, depression, grief, and life transitions. My approach is collaborative and strengths based. I have a particular interest in working with women, new parents, young adults, and anyone interested in mindfulness groups.

I will provide a safe, compassionate space to explore your inner life and any obstacles to your well being. I have a unique ability to help people see their own inherent goodness and build on the many strengths already inside of you. Please contact me for a free initial phone consultation to see if I can help you along this journey.

Marcia Louise Sherrod's Groups

Mindfulness Skill Development Group for Women

The group is an 8 week Mindfulness Skills Development (MSD) group developed by Cyndi Collen, LCSW offering evidenced-based practices to help cultivate mindful awareness and learn how the brain, gut, and nervous system interact with each other in ways that can produce chronic stress. We will use in-class exercises, meditation, and homework to integrate the material so that you can develop a mindfulness practice to mitigate the effects of stress and connect with other women.

More about this group

Yoga and Mindfulness retreat for girls

This is a one day skill enhancing middle school girls retreat using yoga and mindfulness to help with stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and the many pressures of being a teen girl in a media-saturated and fast-paced world. Hatha yoga, mindfulness, breath awareness, self-compassion practices and connection with others can help to mitigate the high stress levels experienced by many teen girls. During the retreat, participants will experience mindfulness practices, hatha yoga, art making, connection with others, guided relaxation, and simple breathing practices that promote self-acceptance and emotional balance. Scholarships available
