Marla Christensen MFT NCC

Marriage and Family Therapist

Individuals experience circumstances within the context of a system. In relationship therapy, my philosophy is to take into account each individual within different systems, including, family, couples, children, teens, extended family, and relationships within your workplace.

My Approach

Each individual adds to the dynamic of relationships through his or her experiences. My clinical focus is through the lens of attachment, that is, how are the bonds we are creating effective or ineffective - in our current lives. You are the expert in your own experiences. I work collaboratively with you to help define, encourage, and assist, in a safe and trusting environment.
