Marissa Pinto

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am an LCSW with over 15 years of experience. The majority of my time in the field has been spent working in the school setting and with children and families. I have worked with people diagnosed with disorders such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism, OCD, ODD, and mood disorders.
I understand that the issues facing couples can affect the entire family unit and I believe that it’s important to tackle those issues in order to help the family work better as a whole.
My style of counseling is calm and welcoming, and I believe that establishing rapport is the best way to initiate a working client-therapist relationship. I pride myself on being neutral and non-judgemental and creating a safe space for my clients. I believe my style of counseling combines the elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy with a client-centered approach, as well as mindfulness as needed. Your treatment plan and goals will be uniquely designed to treat the issues you want to work on in therapy.
I commend you for taking that first step towards helping yourself, and I look forward to participating in that journey with you.

Marissa has been nothing but helpful for me and my partner. I feel like she is an asset to our relationship at this point. A great mediator who has been so helpful in providing us communication tools and practices that have worked for us!

Very patient, kind and understanding. Always there to listen and tries to understand the problem from both sides without choosing favourites. Great choice of worksheet recommendations, I definitely feel like she tries to get to the bottom of the problem and not just treat it on the surface
