Professional statement

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. His clients come from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds, and he tends to be a good fit for individuals who are looking for long-term therapy focused on producing lasting growth and change.

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 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.

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. His publications include peer reviewed articles in the fields of theology, philosophy, and intercultural psychology.

Dr. Marossy's practice is located just off Colorado Boulevard in downtown Pasadena, where he is open for both in-person and teletherapy sessions.

Message to clients

Anxiety, depression, and trauma create lasting wounds that sever our abilities to connect with our selves and others. We get stuck in patterns of thinking, relating, and behaving that cause us great pain, but we can't imagine living any other way. Our individual efforts to grow and change can certainly help, but there are some experiences and behaviors that feel impossible to address without someone else to walk with us through the journey.

I believe lasting psychological change occurs through relationships. I believe people are complex, and I believe most people go through their lives without ever slowing down to reflect on who they are and how they really want to live. I believe hard things happen to people--tragic and impossible things--and that our best attempts at coping with these experiences in the short term often create the patterns that end up causing us additional pain in the long term.

I don't yet know what change will look like for you. I don't know what your suffering has been like. But I know something new and special can happen when you take that next step of reaching out to someone to ask for help. If you feel that's your situation and you think I might be a good fit for what you're going through, I hope you'll consider reaching out.
