Marjorie Fagan

(MA, LMFT)

About Me

Those difficult teen years, sometimes we wonder how we got through them ourselves! In this day and age of social media, there are many challenges that are so overwhelming. Parental training from years ago is not even relevant today. And speaking of training...there are not many classes even offered on this topic at all. A respected expert and author on this subject, Michael J. Bradley, states that successful parenting an adolescent in today's world "requires levels of skill, endurance, wisdom, and strength that make piloting an aircraft pale in comparison"! It's complicated. I have had the 'pleasure' of working with this population for many years, and have Certifications in Play Therapy working with teens. I have to admit, at first I was a bit terrified, but in the end, enjoyed the progress, and positive changes. I have learned that it is very helpful to have a neutral individual work with teenagers. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in southern California, and have almost twelve years of experience working with various populations. I look forward to helping your teenager.

Written by M.A. on Apr 01, 2020 after counseling with Marjorie for 2 weeks

Both my daughter and I felt comfortable talking with Ms. Fagan right away. She's professional, kind, approachable and responds to our messages promptly. I was skeptical about doing an online therapy before but I'm very happy that we decided to do this. We are still working through our problems but it's good to know we have someone as knowledgeable and compassionate as Ms. Fagan to guide us through crisis.

My time with Marjorie is still new but she’s the first one who I feel is listening and not pushing a worksheet on me for every little thing I say. I feel that she’s genuinely interested in me and I enjoy talking with her.

I'm only three sessions in, but I'm loving my counselor, Marjorie. This is the best experience I've had with counseling so far and it is so convenient to do it from home or even work. We sometimes video and sometimes have phone calls, depending on my schedule/whereabouts. She's giving me practical advice and sharing books and worksheets that will help me reach my goals.

I recommend her without reservation.
