Marcia's strongest asset is her ability to integrate
her professional and intellectual knowledge with her
own lived experience. She was propelled into becoming
a psychotherapist wanting to work with patients facing
life transforming challenges when her spouse was
diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. Some of the
challenges she confronted were the threat that the illness and the loss of her husband posed to her own survival and the perils of widowhood.
Marcia is a recognized leader in the management of sexual dysfunction associated with chronic illness. More recently, she has developed programs focusing on helping widows and divorcees learn how to rebuild their lives, overcome grief and loss, repair relationships, make new friends and create an identity of their own.
You can expect when you come to Marcia's office: an
environment that is safe, non judgmental, nurturing yet challenging; and, assistance is setting life goals and developing effective strategies to handle life crises.
