About Marilyn

I was bitten by the psychology bug in high school when I became a peer counselor. I have always been fascinated by our human experience- the way we feel, think, the choices we make. I followed my passion for helping others from there.


I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT). Marriage Family Therapists are Masters-level clinicians with extensive education & training in child, adult, family, and couple therapy. I specialize in adult individual and couple therapy.

I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, going to concerts & baseball games, and catching up on my favorite TV shows.
