Instead of isolating and treating symptoms of mental illness, Marina notices the social, political and economic context in which you live. By doing this, she honors the very real possibly that your symptoms may be caused or heightened by things such as oppression and discrimination. Marina uses an eclectic approach to therapy in which she pulls from multiple evidence-based practices depending on your needs. She is strengths-based and system-focused.
Marina enjoys baking, painting, game nights and playing with her cat Reginald.
