Professional statement

Marley Moreira is a Mental Health Counselor serving adult individuals located in New York. Her practice is collaborative and humanistic with a focus on empowering clients to reclaim their power over their lives. Marley provides clients with reflective conversations to increase their self-awareness and self-esteem, skills to learn how to regulate emotions, techniques to heal the mind and body connection, and a nurturing space where safety and human connection are the priority; all these through the lens of liberation practices to help her clients understand how the intersection of their identities is impacting their situation.

Marley integrates different modalities to explore thoughts patterns, core beliefs and the effects of trauma in their mind and body, using a person-centered approach. Some of these modalities are Internal Family Systems (IFS), Attachment and Strengths Based Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness. These modalities are used taking into consideration each client’s cultural background and personal preferences.

Originally from Puerto Rico, Marley has a background as a financial analyst and volunteered for different non-profit organizations providing services to marginalized communities on the island. Following her interest in psychology, she moved to New York and Received her Mental Health Counseling Master’s at New York University, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development.

Marley has experience working as a psychotherapist for a community clinic in Manhattan where she was exposed to diverse clientele suffering from chronic mental illnesses. She also worked with children and families involved in the foster care system. These experiences impacted her therapeutic approach, centering her practice on working with BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ youth to overcome barriers caused by marginalization and oppression.

She is currently working as a clinician at Resilience Lab in New York, offering tele-health services.

Message to clients

Do you feel like you've lost power over your life? Are you constantly overwhelmed and feeling unease and cannot figure out why? You have been living on the edge and feeling unsafe and disconnected from your body. You want to learn how your upbringing and the trauma you've experienced through life are affecting your present and you want to connect mind and body. You hold a marginalized identity and you want to be seen and be authentic unapologetically, but your internal voice is constantly telling you that you don't belong. You are reading this asking yourself if there is a tiny chance for you to start healing.

Everyone deserves to feel safe, to be heard, to be seen. Your body needs a safe connection to start healing from traumatic events. Therapy is a place where you can explore, unlearn, rebuild, reconnect... You can heal, you can turn off that mean internal voice, and start a new life narrative where you can be aware of your power and your strengths.

If anything above resonates with you, I am ready to work together through tears and laughter. I know how difficult it is, but I know you can do it. You are worthy of healing. My hope for you is that you can feel seen and empowered, I invite you to come as you are and I will walk by your side while you build a life worth living.
