Welcome to Real Wellness Counseling, my name is Marissa. I started this practice with the goal of providing inclusive, safe and accessible psychotherapy for clients. Taking that first step to look for support, is different for everyone and only you know when the time is right for you. I believe trust is the foundation of every relationship. I recognize therapy may be uncomfortable in the beginning when the work involves talking to someone you do not know; that is a natural feeling to have. I believe through open and honest conversations, we can work to build that trust with each other; to gain insights through self exploration and personal growth with a goal of healing so you can feel better. What 'better' is looks different for everyone and we work to find that better together.
My focus is on individual treatment with adults. I am mindful of where each client is on their journey as I do not believe there is a 'one size fits all' when it comes to therapy. Through our first few sessions we will get to know each other as therapist and client and continue to determine if it is an appropriate therapeutic fit. It is important to feel safe and comfortable in that therapeutic space to do the counseling work.
In our time together, I will assess what is needed from me as your therapist to help create a compassionate and empathetic environment. I promote open discussions while incorporating appropriate strategies/coping skills for stressors, negative thoughts and behaviors. My sessions with a client may take an eclectic approach for comprehensive treatment to support a client's needs.
A consistent goal I have for my clients is not only to be able to better cope with current problems, but any future problems they may face as well with the focus being on progress not perfection. The process and work can be tiresome but with trust, compassion and empathy being at the foundation of my practice my hope is you feel the support needed to continue with your 'why' that has brought you to seek therapy.
