Marianna is a bilingual clinical intern, pursuing her M.A. in Counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. She attended Wake Forest University for her undergraduate studies and received a double major in Psychology and Spanish. Marianna has worked with children, teenagers, and young adults in various roles, including as a tutor for refugee and immigrant populations, a pre-kindergarten classroom aide, a nanny and a campus ministry staff member at the University of Southern California. Marianna is passionate about coming alongside people in the midst of their pain and helping them pursue healing and growth. She believes that each person is created in the image of God and, regardless of their beliefs or background, has inherent dignity and worth. She strives to create a safe, empathic space for people to experience a non-judgmental presence and a place to be fully themselves. Marianna works with children, adolescents, and individual adults. She specializes in anxiety, depression, grief and loss, attachment issues, and life transitions.
