My Approach to Helping
Hi!! I’m Marquitta. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I have the privilege of journeying with brave people to come face-to-face with their fear, process their emotions, and truly work toward a happier and healthier lifestyle.
I have worked with individuals and families to effect positive change in their lives. I look at problems through a systemic lens, which means I will never look at you as if you're the problem. The problem is the problem, not you. I take into account the context of the situation and work together with individuals and families to heal and develop functional and healthy relationships with one another. I have worked with clients who have felt stuck, who have struggled with issues of self-worth and esteem, and those who have just wanted to come and feel heard by another person.
I know it's hard to ask for help. It might even be scary, and that's okay. In many cases, feeling scared may be the first step in an amazing journey of growth and new opportunities. Our connection is deeply important to me, and a good fit will make therapy truly worth it. I invite you to contact me, so we can take the next step in getting you the support that will serve you best.
I incorporate multiple approaches throughout therapy depending on your goals and needs. We will begin by exploring patterns in thoughts, behaviors, and environments throughout multiple relationships, past and present. Insight into those patterns will help develop self-compassion, and provide space for new and healthier coping strategies, and relational patterns.
