My Approach to Helping
My name is Marie Vernal. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the state of Florida and Certified Life Coach that believes in the power of working collaboratively with clients by using different techniques and interventions. I am Certified in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, EMDR and TF-CBT. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults, providing person centered, trauma informed and strength based support. My role as your therapist is to provide you with tools and techniques to address past issues relating to trauma, depression and anxiety. I am not your typical therapist. I am funny, supportive, understanding and down to earth. Our time together, is your time to speak and process your truth and memories without judgement. I am a Florida girl with a New York attitude. I keep it real and 100, respectfully.
I obtained my masters in Social Work from Adelphi University in New York City in 2015 and have over ten years experience working with adults and adolescents providing therapy in the home, school, and office setting.
