Many of us struggle in relationships with ourselves and others because we struggle with trusting and accepting that we are truly worthy of the love and acceptance we crave.  Our childhoods may have taught us that we were too different.  We may have chosen to conform, going along to get along to ensure that our emotional and physical needs were met, often to our own emotional detriment.  Because of ongoing challenges with fitting in with friends and family, we may find that we also avoid relationships with others; have a hard time trusting or are too trusting; engage in disparaging self talk to sustain isolation; or find that our lack of boundaries allows others to have access to parts of us that should be better protected.

Markia believes that a trusting relationship is the most important component for change. She endeavors to create a safe space for unlearning relational patterns and/or dynamics that no longer serve you. Rather she aims to help you nurture relationships where you are completely accepted, respected and valued – a relationship where you can discover the true you, the one that’s buried under the layers of other’s expectations.

Markia specializes in working with teens and young adults experiencing: depression, anxiety, self esteem issues, career-related stress, trauma, and life adjustments. She is an intern, currently working toward licensure and describes herself as an eclectic, person-centered therapist with a leaning toward Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

As a graduate of the University of Phoenix with a Master of Science in Psychology, she has over eleven years in the human services arena providing families with the support and direction they need in tough times. Markia is well versed in cultivating a space filled with empathy and respect and has an unbridled passion for helping people work through their traumas to grab hold of the life they deserve.  She would be honored to accompany you on your journey toward self-discovery and actualization.
