Professional statement

Marsha is a compassionate therapist who offers a personalized and holistic approach to healing. She specializes in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and cognitive behavioral therapy, helping individuals overcome trauma and manage thoughts and emotions effectively, often seeing significant relief in 1 to 5 sessions. Marsha tailors her therapy to each client's unique needs, ensuring a personalized and effective experience.

Her own experiences, including raising two neurodivergent children and discovering her autism and ADHD at 57, have enriched her approach to therapy and advocacy for neurodiversity. Marsha creates a safe, confidential, and welcoming environment for her clients, offering both in-person and virtual sessions with flexible scheduling to accommodate different lifestyles.

In sessions, clients find a nonjudgmental, empathetic listener in a warm and genuine space. Marsha is a Master level ART clinician, national trainer, and is continually updating her skills and knowledge through professional development. She holds certifications in Rational Living Therapy (CBT) and as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Additionally, Marsha is a neurodivergent mindset coach, dedicated to supporting her clients' journey of healing and growth.

Prospective clients can take advantage of a free 15-minute consultation to discuss their needs and see how Marsha's services can benefit them. This initial meeting allows individuals to get a feel for her approach and decide if it aligns with their therapy goals.
