About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor in New York with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor/therapist. I received my undergrad in Criminal Justice and Psychology from the University at Albany and hold a dual Master Degree from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Forensic Psychology and Forensic Mental Health Counseling. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including substance use, anxiety, depression, trauma/abuse, and school related concerns such as IEP’s, self-esteem and bullying.

My therapy style is warm, empathetic, supportive and inclusive. I believe in treating anyone and everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I look forward to working with you!

Marissa is amazing. We have been on a bit of a journey finding a therapist for my 13YO daughter who's had significant struggles. After getting squeezed out of a few different places because logistics just didn't work, we found Marissa. At that point, of course, my daughter was tired of meeting new therapists "that never work." She was starting to just talk minimally with therapists or pushback on my scheduling appts.

Marissa picked up on this and moved slowly and comfortably to connect with my daughter. When my daughter bulked at an early session, Marissa somehow gave her space in a way that my daughter actually came back the next week, with trust, knowing that Marissa would respect her states of mind. When my daughter's doctor said she should do DBT (dialectic behavioral therapy), Marissa started incorporating that into my daughter's sessions. She was flexible schedule-wise (which we needed) and was willing to hear my side commentary through messages in the platform about specific life events or concerns my daughter was managing that she may not be saying in session.

Marissa is simply amazing. I'm so glad we found her. Highly highly recommend!

Marissa is just awesome! She is incredibly good at active listening, she seems to remember everything we say and is very good at connecting things and tying them together in a way that makes sense. She doesn't only listen, though, and actually offers extremely valuable feedback as well as validation. She provides worksheets and exercises that are quite helpful, and she's very communicative/available through messaging in between sessions. She is also very flexible in her scheduling, which has been extremely helpful for us. We felt at ease with her almost immediately, and she definitely makes you feel like she genuinely cares and is invested in your success and growth. 10/10 would recommend!
