Over 26 years ago, I met a woman who taught me how to incorporate
the principles of psychology with the power of spirituality. I believe incorporating principles of spirit, mind and body can more fully bring healing to the whole person. Licensed as a marriage and family therapist, I recognize each person's innate value and work toward revealing that value to the client and building on that value to help you meet the goals that you establish for yourself.
I have worked in clinics, group
practices, family services and had private practices in California,
Massachusetts, and Virginia, as well as Tokyo, Japan. I also have
traveled around the world to bring healing from stress and trauma to
residents of third world countries including Sierra Leone, Malawi, Honduras, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Cambodia and others.
Specializing in healing from the inside out, I work with clients to locate and change beliefs that keep them stuck in recurring patterns and behaviors that they want to change. Once the beliefs are changed, the behaviors follow rather effortlessly. With this approach, healing often comes quicker that one might imagine. Here is what one client had to say:
"...I had been attacked and left for dead by my ex-husband...I had been in and out of therapy with PTSD, anxiety disorder, insomnia and nightmares. I got through my days with Ativan, afraid to go to sleep and dream...Then I found Marianne. I felt safe and encouraged to uncover everything to put the pieces
together. I was able to remember a period in my childhood that was blank and disturbing.We put the puzzle together. My childhood started to make sense. I found answers...and took my life back. I have been able to deal with any anxiety now without medication. Sleep is returning. I have a new normal that I like very much.
Marianne operates outside of the box.She respected my beliefs and didn't
push anything on me I did not want or couldn't handle.That's what made
my work with her so healing...With Marianne's help I feel like I'm finally the real me."
I write regularly for magazines, newspapers and have published two best-selling books:
Peaceful Parenting: 10 essential principles and Un-Leashed: Practical Steps to Get Your Life Unstuck and a Meditation CD, Moments of Mindfulness.

It has been my firm belief that we are all created to live an
abundant life and it is my privilege to lead you there if you feel
I am married with a combined family of eight children and thirteen grandchildren, a source of much learning and growth, and immense joy.
