About Marian

Anytime an individual comes through the counseling door, it can be a vulnerable and scary experience. This is especially true when a parent is seeking counseling for their child. Many parents feel unsure, scared, and discouraged when they bring their child to therapy. However, it is a sign of strength when a parent becomes willing to seek help for themselves and for their child. Marian holds a strong view that healing for each child starts with the family. It is for this reason that she works hand in hand with the client and their families. Therapy, especially play therapy, is a process that takes time, but can be very healing and safe for your child. Marian uses a mix of play therapy, coping skills, art activities, and mindfulness to help your child process and heal. Marian will also listen to and talk with your family to come up with ways to support your child at home, school, and other social situations.

The body has the ability to remember trauma as much as the brain. Marian builds this into her approach when working with adults. She strives to use body awareness (referred to as somatic awareness) to help you become attuned to how your body remembers your past trauma. Marian also uses an assortment of imagery work to help you find coping skills that can help you experience healing in a deeper way. She also strives to help you emotionally and verbally process how your past trauma and experiences impact your current thinking and situations.

Marian seeks to be warm, inviting, and understanding to everyone she meets with. She wants you to feel heard, understood, and empowered when you leave therapy. It is her goal to help you feel more connected to others, God, and yourself when you are done with counseling.

About Devin

Counseling is a space where we can safely confront the reality of living in a world full of suffering and brokenness. It can be a vulnerable and scary experience for individuals to seek out counseling. This is especially true for parents reaching out for help with their child or adolescent. Devin hopes to empower her clients to reflect, confront, and wrestle with their understanding of the world. It is a privilege for Devin to collaborate with her clients and explore the tender places of their stories.

Devin provides counseling to children, adolescents, families, and individuals. Clients who sit with her will feel the freedom to simply be and can expect to be met wherever they are in circumstances of joy or difficulty. Through integrating multiple theories of practice, Devin seeks to provide individualized care for each client. She is particularly drawn toward counseling methods based on trauma-informed practices, attachment theory, interpersonal processing theory, emotional regulation, and family systems theory.

Whether it be an adult client coming in for individual counseling or parents seeking to better care for their child or adolescent, Devin hopes to offer safety and warmth, help disrupt unhealthy styles of relating, bring light to generational cycles and their impact on her clients, and empower clients to use their voices in ways that lead to flourishing. Many of the issues Devin works with her clients on are anxiety, depression, grief, past abuse, trauma, self-esteem, sexual difficulties, shame, attachment challenges, and emotional regulation.
