Welcome to Heal and Grow Therapy. I am Susana Marquez, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT105624) and a specialized Maternal Mental Health Clinician. I am a passionate, empathic and strength based clinician. I will assist you in seeking your own inner strengths while guiding you towards healing and growth. I have a very straight forward approach in my therapy sessions but I use humor to connect with my clients and make them feel comfortable. My goal is to provide you a safe space of healing and serenity. I will not judge, criticize or make you feel ashamed for seeking help. I will support you and commend you for taking this very important step in your growth process.
I have extensive knowledge in the mental health field as I have been blessed with working in several setting such as homes, schools, private practice and county non profit organizations for 15 years. It allows me to serve a diverse population and provide specific therapy to each and one of them. My experience ranges from child behavioral issues, parenting, communication and relationship issues to individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, loss or suicidal ideation and more. I have thorough knowledge of all mental illnesses and diagnoses and provide a thorough assessment to meet your needs. I also provide maternal mental health therapeutic support and services.
