Suzanne B. Marin, LCSW
When ‘I’ is replaced by ‘We’ even ‘illness’ Becomes ‘Wellness’” –Malcolm X.
This embodies my therapeutic approach. Fostering wellness involves healing the body, mind, and soul collectively. While we readily schedule appointments for our physical health, our mental well-being often gets overlooked. Therapy need not evoke fear or discomfort; rather, it should serve as a realm where one embarks on a journey towards realizing their utmost potential.
I collaborate with my clients to establish a secure and receptive setting where thoughts and emotions can be freely expressed, devoid of apprehension regarding judgment. It takes bravery to seek a more gratifying and joyful existence, and to embark upon the initial steps of change. I am here to provide support and encouragement throughout this expedition.
I acknowledge that reaching out to a therapist can be daunting, yet I encourage you to pause (and perhaps take a deep breath) then give me a call to explore how I can be of assistance to you.
