Couples counseling is more the norm than you may think. Whether you want someone to bounce ideas off of or need to get to the root of some concerns in your relationship, I'm here!
I am a California Marriage and Family Therapist licensed with about 10 years experience providing clinical services. I've helped people dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, grief, work stress, substance use, and so much more. Not only have I done individual therapy, I have experience with families and couples (monogamous and polyamorous) as well. My approach will sometimes pull from different approaches but I tend to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing as my foundation.
Besides my great amount of experience, one of my strengths is that I'm able to connect to a lot of different people.I have a history of working well with those with very little therapy experience or no experience at all so newbies or people just testing therapy out are welcome. I think it's because I respect that the people I work with are the experts in their own lives while I'm here mostly to help you sort things out. When it comes to couples and families, it's mostly about different perspectives and figuring out how to come to common ground.
Let's work this out together.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Family conflicts
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Coaching, Compassion fatigue

Marcelle has been stellar. She’s a great listener and effective communicator. She clearly understands our problems and gives great insight during our sessions and after them for us to think about as well. I’d highly recommend her.
Marcelle has been our counselor for a few months now. So far so good. She has been very helpful to us and offers us valuable advice. We trust her.
Marcelle is fantastic - caring, responsive, smart and generally fun to speak with.
I’ve had a few sessions with Marcella to improve communication in my relationship, and so far our communication has improved so much. I’m very grateful for Marcella offer us solid advice and is working with us. Forever grateful!
She has been great so far!
My boyfriend and I came into this not knowing what to expect about the experience and our relationship, but talking to Marcelle about it all made it comfortable and not pressured. There were days when only I talked to her and he would respond not with what I wanted to hear but the truth and how to manage my side in a relationship. I am extremely grateful to her and everything she had supported us on.
