A Note From Marie

I became a therapist because I wanted to be a support system for individuals that I wished I had for me in my adolescence. During my mental health journey, I did not have the knowledge nor the confidence to say to my therapist, “this isn’t working.” Because of this experience, I am open, honest, and understanding with all of my clients. My clients are the experts in their mental health journey and I am there to guide, support, and challenge. I am always meeting my clients where they are at, so if the first session is us chatting, listening to music, and painting we can make that work!

Most of my spare time is spent with my new puppy Jasmine, but when Jasmine is not taking up all my time I love to read, cook, go to yoga, and spend time with my friends and family. 

While her office is located in downtown Chicago next to Millenium park for in-person sessions, she also welcomes and serves clients for online therapy from anywhere in Illinois. Clients from the Chicagoland area may choose in-office or online therapy and usually commute from surrounding areas such as River North, South Loop, West Loop, Gold Coast, Old Town, Lincoln Park, Lake View, Logan Square, Wicker Park, Bucktown and many more.
