Hello there! I am looking forward to working with you and your family. I have been in the “helping others profession” since a was a little girl, whether it was assisting my mother with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or babysitting for the neighborhood children. Helping others is second nature to me and I knew I always wanted to be a counselor.
I am very proud to say that I have a been a therapist for 11 years and I have loved every minute of it. Before joining Unlimited Potential Counseling and Education Center, I worked as a substitute teacher, an inpatient and outpatient therapist for a major hospital, a school-based therapist for St. Charles County Schools, and an outpatient therapist for rural, underserved communities. I have experience providing individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy.
I specialize in Child-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, in order to “rewire” thoughts and behaviors. I utilize play and art therapeutic techniques, as well. I also provide positive reinforcement behavior modification strategies when working with families, medical professionals, and school professionals, so that everyone is using the same approach and techniques.
You and your child deserve peace and happiness, everyone working together will help your child get there. Please contact me at your earliest convenience, it is never too late to ask for help and make a change.
Marie is in-network with Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield and United Healthcare
