I provide therapy for other therapists, which speaks to my competence level. I am 55-year old female and highly competent and skilled in my specialization in interracial couples, infidelity and partner betrayal issues, narcissist and codependent issues, toxic love attachments, Full Disclosure infidelity couples process, and mediate process for Controlled Separation for couples on the brink of break-up or divorce. I am also a Certified Personality Disorder Treatment Specialist and Life Coach. My approah is active and direct and lends well for clients who want a no-frills type of therapist/counselor. I integrate therapy with coaching strategies which is highly effective for individual or couples seeking results in a timely manner. I work with individuals and couples and joint sessions involving adult child and parent/s.
My work allows me to witness resilience, hope, and inner strength in the human experience of my clients. My work is my passion and provides inspiration, meaning, and purpose to being.
Marilyn is a decent, caring, principled, and knowledgeable coach. She works very hard, takes much time to prepare for her clients, is extremely conscientious, and is accessible. During the therapy session, she is diplomatic, while at the same time she is direct, and will say what needs to be said, even if it is painful. Rather than the “we talk, and she listens” type of therapy, Marilyn gives individual and couples homework each session to be worked on in between sessions. Therefore, we came prepared each session to work on our relationship and left each session with an action plan. I have already recommended Marilyn multiple times.
Marilyn has been instrumental in helping me get through a very difficult time in my life. I would not have been able to get as far as I have to this point without her help. I like that she provides me with different tools that can be used with whatever I am facing in life. She is always very understanding and compassionate, but definitely does tell me when I am the cause of the problem/issue that I am dealing with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone going through a difficult time in their life. She's the best!
Marilyn has been such a blessing as I've been navigating through an extremely difficult period in my life. I've seen other therapists before and have seen more progress in my first month of sessions with Marilyn than I did with many months of sessions with others. I feel very comfortable talking to Marilyn and her style is a great mix of therapy and education. I have already referred a couple of friends to Marilyn and would highly recommend her.
Marilyn has been an incredible source of stability and compassion in my life! She helped me through an incredibly difficult time, and then helped me to learn the tools I needed to move forward. Would highly recommend her, her spiritual concepts and teachings bring everything together in the most uplifting way. I will be forever grateful for our time together!
My approach to couples counseling is an active and direct approach - no frills. Let's get to the core issues and get to the Truth of things. My approach works well for couples have "tried everything", and wish to make one final and last attempt to get the relationship or marriage on track before breaking up or divorcing. There IS a greater purpose to why you are together. Would it be a bad idea to find that purpose?
