Licensed Professional Counselor

Marie is the mental health therapist for the Trees from Seeds Program, a collaborate program between the Oshkosh Boys & Girls Club and Catalpa Health. Marie has a Masters in Education degree in Professional Counseling from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, with an emphasis on clinical mental health. Marie prides herself on developing a personable relationship with her clients in a trusting, non-judgmental counseling environment. Marie’s style of therapy focuses on drawing from one’s individual, familial, and cultural strengths to overcome challenges and cope with daily stressors, so that kids feel good about themselves and have the skills needed to achieve their goals and dreams. She also believes that family, friends, and community are systems of support and influence that are essential to the development of kids, thus being an integral part of the counseling process. Outside of work, Marie spends time with her family watching movies, hiking, dancing, traveling, and attending outdoor festivals in the summer.
