He/Him/HisPsychologist, PhD Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Dr. Michael Marossy is a licensed psychologist based in Pasadena, CA who works with teens, adults, and couples and who specializes in anxiety, depression, trauma, and engaging with spiritual/religious concerns. He works with clients from a variety of cultural and professional backgrounds, and tends to be a good fit for clients who wish to understand their self and their relationships better as a result of therapy.
Dr. Marossy's psychodynamic and depth-oriented approach improves his clients' abilities to understand themselves and others nonjudgmentally by welcoming them into therapeutic space characterized by warmth, authenticity, and acceptance. He starts by working with his clients to identify treatment goals to address their immediate distress, and then helps them see how that distress relates to longstanding patterns in their internal experiences and/or their relationships. As clients improve their awareness of these patterns and learn to let go of the past and the pain associated with them, they also grow more able to live a free life that is aligned with their genuine sense of who they are and what they value.
Dr. Marossy earned his Ph.D. from Fuller Graduate School of Psychology, where his research focused on including faith and spirituality in psychological treatment in ways that are personally and interculturally responsible. He works part-time at Fuller Psychological and Family Services as a Licensed Clinician and Clinical Supervisor and at Fuller Graduate School of Psychology as an Adjunct Professor.
Dr. Marossy's practice is located just off Colorado Boulevard in downtown Pasadena, where he is open for both in-person and teletherapy sessions.
