Areas of focus

Marla specializes in a type of therapy called Internal Family Systems Therapy which uses families of origin as a backdrop for understanding the present. If that therapeutic approach does not appear to be appropriate for a client, Marla uses other well-established and researched therapies that better meet a client’s needs.

Her areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, life transitions, and relationships. The goal is always to help clients achieve balance in their lives. Marla also has a special interest in working with adults with Asperger’s syndrome and other medical issues, as well as grief and loss.
