Ms. Marcia A. Goncalves-Terlep

EMDR Certified Therapist

Education & Experience

I have been practicing for 9 years, and I am fluent in Spanish, English, and Portuguese. I have successfully worked with young children, adolescents, adults, and families to resolve many issues; including anxiety, depression, ADHD, disruptive behavior, attachment issues, trauma, phobias, and relationship difficulties. I have no doubt that by providing a safe compassionate space and effective tools, patients are able to solve problems and find answers. As a mental health counselor, I frame my treatment approach to meet my client' s individual needs. I have effectively used Play therapy, Trauma focus - CBT, EMDR , Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy. Using an individualized approach grants clients to work through difficult emotional issues and helps with understanding the cause of distress, while developing a concrete plan for treatment, and reliving the distress.
