Counseling with Marissa Stringer, LLMSW

Marissa is passionate about navigating identity and self-worth through challenging life transitions. Generally, Marissa works from a trauma-informed, psychodynamic theoretical perspective. She also incorporates elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical-Behavior Therapy, and Narrative Therapy into her treatment approaches. Marissa adjusts her approaches based on the client’s needs and preferences.
Marissa believes that it is important to address the symptoms that cause a client’s distress, but that it is not beneficial to the client to focus only on symptom management. Marissa wants to help her clients reflect on their experiences to identify patterns that can help them understand why they feel a certain way and what they can do to change any negative recurring themes they may be experiencing.

Marissa offers both in-person and telehealth services.
