Description

Marina’s approach is strength-based and focuses on goals and exceptions to the problem. Instead of looking for what is wrong and how to fix it, she is looking for what is right and how to use it. The assumptions that guide her work are that people have the strengths and resources within themselves to deal with any challenge, that small changes lead to bigger changes, and that the focus should be on solutions and the desired future as opposed to the problem and the past. Marina works with clients to co-construct solutions that are right for them.

We believe the anchor symbolizes support and strength to get you through the difficult times in your life - we will be your anchor. Our goal is to connect you with the right clinician who will strive to empower you to reach a breakthrough within six to eight sessions.
