You can show up however you are and will be met without judgement. Whether you are coming to counseling for the first time, need some extra support, or have clear goals in mind, Marlee will partner with you, or you and your child to support your vulnerable process of healing and growth.
Marlee supports clients in a variety of life challenges, including but not limited to trauma, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, self-esteem, family conflict, parenting issues, women's issues, and grief. She uses art materials, reflective listening, and humor to help clients feel engaged in session. Depending on client preferences, she can offer more structured tools, such as journaling prompts or guided worksheets.
