Working with Marilyn has been incredibly rewarding and truly helped me make meaningful changes in my life. I've worked with other therapists, and while those experiences have been positive, Marilyns technique and approach allowed me to understand myself in ways that I've not been able to before. She creates a safe space for me to express my thoughts and feelings without any fear of judgment. The frameworks and tools that she shares are practical are relevant. I would recommend Marilyn to anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of who they are and what they want out of their life.
I came to Marilyn during a critical juncture of my marriage. Both my husband and I came to her counseling session with some level of skepticism; however, within the first few meetings, both of us realized the sessions were highly effective and impactful. Marilyn truly has a methodical way of unboxing the real issues that are hiding beneath the surface. She listens to concerns attentively, she systematically addresses issues and she provides tools that are useful and practical. Most importantly, she is always there to help and listen. My husband and I gained immense insight about ourselves and each other while attending the joint sessions. Marilyn has helped us navigate through a very difficult time in our relationship and she has always gone the extra mile to support and comfort both of us. I have recommended her to my friends and family members and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for effective counseling sessions.
Marilyn is welcoming and very objective in trying to help her clients. She's very knowledgable and a good teacher. She gives insights and tools for her clients to use for their personal growth. She's empathetic and want her clients to move forward in their lives, focusing on the present instead of lingering on the past. Overall she's someone who you could trust your problems and help you get out of it.
Great conversations and useful, practical communication and mindfulness tools.
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?
