“How do you go from where you are to where you want to be? I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life, you have to have a dream and a goal. And you have to be wiling to work for it.”― Jim Valvano

Marni specializes in treating adults, adolescents, couples and families.  She recognizes that by the time someone reaches out for therapeutic support, issues have likely been simmering for some time and there is a tremendous need for relief and peace.  Marni believes that a warm, supportive therapeutic relationship creates an environment to accomplish shifts in perspective that can lead to a lasting, positive impact on the quality of life.  Marni has a compassionate, humorous style that facilitates the gut level honesty necessary for change work.

In her free time, you will find Marni with the windows rolled down, the radio up, singing along loudly to whatever her four sons are listening to.
