Marissa’s Specializations Include
Couples Experiencing Infidelity
I provide therapy to couples and families who would like help dealing with perpetual issues or challenging life situations to move forward and regain a sense of control over their lives. I seek to help my clients examine family relationships (both past and present), gain insight and self-awareness, and become more attuned to inner processes of thoughts and feelings.
I provide counseling to couples and families struggling to connect, especially within the intimate relationships. Aspects such as rigid thinking, traumatic events, emotional conflicts, infidelity or affairs, inability to speak about sex or sexuality, fear and shame all add stress and possible disconnect.
I take an eclectic approach in my clinical practice, utilizing a variety of different techniques to help my clients cultivate change from within.
