Marion Sanchez, MS, LPCC
As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I strive to cultivate a safe space, and walk alongside my clients during their therapy experience. Through my trauma-informed, cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused approach, I validate, challenge, empower, and encourage my clients to make the changes necessary to create a positive life experience. I am passionate about helping clients tell their story, unlock their inner strengths, heal from painful experiences, and grow into the best version of themselves.
I have training and experience in two evidenced-based trauma therapy models. I am Level 1 and Level 2 trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) through an EMDRIA approved training, and I am currently pursuing national certification. I am also nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
My current areas of focus and interest are helping people heal from trauma, as well as working with the adolescent and young adult population in increasing their quality of life.
In addition, I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) through a Linehan Institute approved training. I have experience co-facilitating DBT groups and providing individual DBT therapy.
My previous professional experiences include working in a nonprofit outpatient setting where I provided therapeutic services to children, adolescents, adults, families and couples. I also have experience working with children, adolescents and families in their homes, with particular focus in working with adolescents who engaged in high risk behaviors and their families utilizing a multi-systemic approach. Additionally, I have co-facilitated an interpersonal effectiveness group and a men’s domestic violence group. I also have experience working on a state university college campus counseling center in which I worked with students who presented with a wide array of concerns.
