n 2013 Marcia graduated from McMaster University with a Bachelors of Science degree, after which she decided to take two years away from her studies to focus on self-exploration and restoring both her mental and physical wellness. During this time she developed a deeper understanding about the importance of taking the time to take care of oneself, which can involve a great deal of self-reflection and working through difficult issues. It was during this period that Marcia was reminded of her passion. Marcia completed a three-year Masters of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counselling at Niagara University and is now a Registered Psychotherapist.
Marcia is motivated to take the skills and lessons she has learned both in her personal and professional life to help those that are looking to work through complicated issues by creating a safe environment to explore them in. Marcia has clinical experience working with a variety of issues and mental health related concerns including anxiety, depression, stress, relationship challenges, body image concerns, disordered eating, obsessive-compulsive disorder and emotion regulation difficulties amongst others.
Marcia works to adapt and tailor the course of treatment to each individual clients needs and goals. She utilizes various clinical interventions including cognitive behaviour therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, solution-focused therapy and strengths-based approaches, reinforced through a client-centered lens. Marcia aims to create a strong therapeutic alliance built on the foundations of authenticity, trust and respect, and strives to cultivate client wellness through compassion and empathy.
