About

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.
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).
I appreciate working with a diversity of concerns, and specialize in depression, anxiety, identity exploration, stress management, trauma, PTSD, gender & sexuality, meaning-making, toxic stress of oppressions, and healthy relationships (with ourselves & others). I am always open to further discussing my approach to see if working together is a good fit.
