Marina obtained her Master’s in Social Work from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, CUNY, New York City in 2012. Her program is highly esteemed for the emphasis they put on clinical training. And Marina started doing clinical work and case management even before obtaining her degree. She has experience working in various settings, including outpatient mental health clinics, hospitals, crisis services. She has been working with both children and adults.
Here is what Marina would like to say about herself and her work.
“I believe that achieving a balance between the mind and body is an important component of the healing process, therefore I help my clients become more aware of their mind and body processes. My philosophy about treatment is to partner with clients to empower them to live their lives to their fullest. Assist clients to achieve stability and help heal emotional wounds in order to improve personal growth.
My knowledge and training are aimed at helping individuals steer through feelings of anxiety, depression, hopelessness, child-parent relational problem, social skills, and other life-limiting issues. I come from an extensive background of working with children, adults, and families in both long and short term psychotherapy, using a mixture of cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, problem-solving therapy, and mindfulness.
I aspire to create a space in which clients feel safe to be seen and heard.”
