She has over 7 years of experience providing care for adults, couples, and families seeking help with processing trauma, anxiety, depression, spirituality, LGBTQI, and gender issues.

This, coupled with her professional mindfulness training in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBST), enables her to provide a balanced approach to incorporating mindfulness in her sessions. Marla utilizes multiple treatment approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
