10 years of experience

Hello! I am Marissa Whitter, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Master’s Level Certified Addiction Professional. I obtained my master’s from Troy University in Counseling and Psychology and bachelor’s from Florida State University. As a psychotherapist and addictions counselor, my goal is to provide you with quality psychotherapy and therapy services. I am passionate about mental health and love seeing my clients reach their full potential.

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

As a psychotherapist and addictions counselor, creating a place to grow, be empowered, and heal is my main focus. My goal is to meet you where you are and provide empathic listening while creating a safe place to grow and develop healthy coping skills. At our first session, i will take my time and get to know more about your mental health history and how that impacts your current life dynamics. You can expect a warm, client lead therapy session, that will open up the pathway to a great therapeutic relationship over time.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My approach is eclectic using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

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

I believe that everyone deserves therapy and an opportunity to express emotional experiences. I believe in the power of empathy and how understanding and listening can create a place of growth and healing. We all deserve a right to be heard, no matter the experiences. As a therapist, that has also utilized therapy, i know it works. I believe in community and the power of valuable support. Compassion, Affirmation, and Empathy are the tools that create change!
