River Marino, LCSW
About River Marino
Healing happens when we feel safe enough to show up exactly as we are. All parts of you are welcome here. I’m not here to change you or fix you. In fact, I don’t think you are “broken” or that there's anything "wrong" with you. Together we'll create an open, accepting + compassionate environment, with respect for your intuition underlying all that we do.
I’m trauma and social justice-informed and view therapy through an intersectional lens (mind, body, environment, culture). During our time together, we’ll also look at environmental factors (interpersonal, economic, oppression, etc.) that contribute to and/or make challenging issues even more so.
My approach is both collaborative and holistic, centering around values of embodied presence, empathy, connection, and deep listening. I’m relationship-centered, fascinated with polyvagal theory, and incorporate somatic + mindfulness-based approaches into sessions.
You don't need to travel to an office for quality therapy. If you live in FL or NC, you can receive holistic therapy from the comfort of your home, office, dorm, or hotel room. We'll meet online via an easy-to-use secure video conferencing system. I offer a free 15 minute consultation to see if my experience + approach is a match for your needs. Warmly, River (she/they)
