Hi, I'm Marjorie, an experienced clinical social worker, licensed in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. My specialties include working with adolescents and adults from varied backgrounds, identities, and cultures who suffer from symptoms of depression, anxiety, or mood disorders. There may be times in your life when you are struggling. Perhaps you are overwhelmed with anxiety or depression which is interfering with your day-to-day living and/or work. Perhaps you are experiencing unhappiness in important relationships, or you are resorting to unhealthy ways of coping such as disordered eating, self-harm activities, or other self-sabotaging behaviors. You may generally feel "less than," or feel as if you don't fit in, feel conflicted about your identity, or feel debilitated by anxiety or depressive symptoms. The "work" of therapy can offer relief from painful symptoms and conflicts while addressing your unique and particular patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are holding you back from a more productive and fulfilling life. My goal is to listen and work with you to understand your unique experiences, identify underlying thoughts and feelings about yourself and others, examine how your past may have informed your present, and provide a safe space for you to explore yourself. Together we will identify patterns that are not working for you and find strategies, personal to you, to overcome them. My therapeutic modalities include Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic approaches and often include DBT practices such as mindfulness and guided meditation techniques.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, we will begin with brief introductions and then focus on your reasons for seeking treatment, your background, and other relevant information you think it important for me to know about you. By the end of the session, we will have developed together a beginning treatment plan and goals you would like to attain in therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am an experienced licensed clinical social worker who has worked in both mental health and educational settings. I have predominately worked with adolescents and adults from varied and diverse backgrounds, identities, and cultures. Respect and providing a safe space for exploration underlies all my work.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

We will identify and explore your negative thoughts, core beliefs, and behavioral patterns that interfere with your daily living and connections to others. Together, we will find alternate, more positive ways of thinking and approaching solutions to self-defeating thoughts and behaviors.

Psychodynamic

We will examine how your past experiences with family and significant persons in your life have shaped current attitudes, feelings, and behaviors. We will examine what is useful and what may no longer serve in your best self-interest.

Daialectical Behavior (DBT)

We will practice mindful breathing, guided meditation, and behavioral activation techniques to help manage symptoms associated with depression and anxiety
