Mariella has been my therapist since 2019. I highly recommend her for trauma and relationship counseling. She is an extremely bright, capable and skilled clinician, as well as a kind and wonderful human being. Mariella genuinely cares about her clients and invests in their happiness. She has made a huge difference in my life over these years and I am forever grateful to her.

-Anonymous Client

Mariella is a true gem in the field of trauma therapy and relationship healing. From the moment I started working with her, I felt seen, heard, and supported in ways I never thought possible. Her expertise in EMDR therapy and her compassionate demeanor create a safe space for deep healing and growth. Thanks to Mariella’s guidance, I’ve been able to confront my past traumas and develop healthier patterns in my relationships. I can’t recommend her highly enough for anyone seeking compassionate and effective therapy.

-Anonymous Client

I have been working with Dr. Mariella for a long time, and every time we use EMDR, it helps me ground my thoughts and eliminate the noise around me. The feeling is to be able to concentrate on one topic at a time and, therefore, solve the anxiety issues I face. This technique helps me understand the reason for my tension and elaborate on it positively by developing a better way of thinking and feeling. It is like facing bad thoughts and being able to bid goodbye to them.

-Anonymous Client

We came to Mariella at a time when our relationship felt like it was falling apart. Years of unresolved trauma had taken its toll on our connection, and we were struggling to communicate and trust each other. Mariella’s compassionate and non-judgmental approach immediately put us at ease. She helped us navigate through our individual traumas while also teaching us how to support each other through the healing process. With Mariella’s guidance, we learned how to communicate more effectively, rebuild trust, and create a deeper bond than we ever thought possible. Today, we’re stronger as a couple and individually, and we owe it all to Mariella’s expertise and dedication.
