Therapy is a safe space to be supported, listened to, and guided through your journey

Marah Owecke


We are capable of change, growth, and healing ourselves. Therapy is a safe space to examine oneself, one’s trauma, and work towards health, healing, and higher functioning. Marah works with individuals who may be navigating issues related to anxiety, depression, life and lifestyle changes, shame, trauma, identity, and insecurity.

Marah’s ​therapeutic approach blends Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness-based therapy, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy. In working with Marah your care will be collaboratively curated to fit your unique experiences.

​Marah is committed to walking with you as we explore the patterns, stories, and struggles that limit you. Therapy is relational and the connection with your therapist is what will have the biggest impact on your healing.
