Joan Marks' bio

This content was provided by Joan Marks "I was born in New York City and lived most of my adult life in Boston and then Maine. My winters have been spent in Austin, TX and in Sarasota, FL. I attended Clark University and Simmons College School of Social Work. I became a social worker and therapist to pursue my interest and curiosity in what makes people "tick" and in how to facilitate each individual's capacity to reach their fullest potential. My deepest satisfaction is knowing that I have helped clients through the hardest days of their lives, such as grief, depression, loss, divorce, mid-life crises, and supported their journey back to a healthy and joyful life. I have experience in individual, couples work, organizational consulting and mediation. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Joan Marks "My goal is to establish collaborative relationship in which you can feel safe, supported, respected and understood. On this foundation, we build a process to develop insight and understanding. My approach is holistic and draws from a variety of approaches-- psychoanalytic, cognitive behavioral, solution focused, family systems, gestalt and others. We look at the impact of family experiences and focus on change in the present - emotional, physical and spiritual."
