Before joining the Blackhawk Family, Marisa supported children, teens and families in a school setting as a Mental Health Counselor in the East Bay. She works from a collaborative, strength-based approach while supporting clients to be the author of their own lives. Her empathy and warmth help create a safe, non-judgmental space for all ages, where clients can process and heal. Marisa works closely with her clients to tailor therapy to their needs and what works best for them.
