Marsha brings compassion and a deep understanding of the healing journey to her work as a therapist. She’s here to guide you toward a sense of calm, clarity, and inner peace, with a strong belief in the inherent wellness and vitality that lives within us all. Life’s experiences can sometimes obscure this vital part of ourselves, but Marsha is dedicated to helping you rediscover and reconnect with your inner strength.
In her therapy sessions, Marsha utilizes Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) to swiftly and gently help individuals move past trauma, releasing distressing images and body sensations. The beauty of ART is that it doesn’t require you to talk about your trauma in order to heal from it, and many find relief in just 1 to 5 sessions. Marsha also integrates specialized cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to empower you with the tools to step back, observe your thoughts, and navigate your mindset toward feelings of empowerment and confidence.
Marsha’s own journey through life has deeply influenced her approach to therapy. Raising two neurodivergent children as a single mother has not only given her a wealth of personal experience but also inspired her pursuit of education and a career in therapy. Discovering her own autism and ADHD at the age of 57 has added another layer of understanding and advocacy for neurodiversity, as well as providing education on mental wellness and managing thoughts and emotions.
In your sessions with Marsha, you’ll find a nonjudgmental, empathic listener and a warm, genuine space to begin your unique journey of healing and growth. She’s not only a Master level ART clinician and national trainer but also holds certifications in Rational Living Therapy (CBT), and is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Marsha is also a neurodivergent mindset coach, ready to support you every step of the way.
