Now offering Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

This is an evidenced-based form of psychotherapy that utilizes back and forth eye movements to help clients address common problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias, grief, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and relationship issues. 

In experiencing ART, you may find that you connect pieces of information that are already stored in your memory to help you resolve your issues. The brain, while focused on a problem and concurrently using eye movements, makes new connections with a person’s strengths and problem solving abilities.

ART is a very focused eye movement therapy and, as such, has produced quick, effective and safe results. ART is effective with adults as well as children. 

Marquita looks forward to supporting you in your healing journey using ART. Sessions can be booked by first scheduling a consultation appointment using this link. ART sessions are delivered in person in Tampa, Florida. 

The investment for ART sessions is $200, and a 50%, non-refundable deposit is required at scheduling if you are not an established client.

What is counseling?

Counseling, also known as psychotherapy, is a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals. Counselors work with clients on strategies to overcome obstacles and personal challenges they are facing. Professional Counselors are equipped to diagnose and treat mental and behavioral health disorders. The field of counseling, unlike coaching, is regulated by state boards and in most states, a professional license is needed to practice. Marquita is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in both Colorado and Georgia and a National Certified Counselor (NCC.) Marquita is also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida and a South Carolina Approved Telehealth Counselor. 

She’s worked in a variety of settings to include a college counseling center, outpatient work at community mental health centers, residential, an eating disorder hospital and private practice settings. She currently practices telehealth which involves the practice of caring for clients remotely via a HIPAA compliant platform.

She’s skilled at treating adolescents and adults and specializes in the First Time Therapy Experience as well as supporting individuals who’ve previously had a failed attempt at therapy. Common issues treated include depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship conflict, parenting and career performance. She has experience working with military families and individuals adjusting to major or minor life transitions.

Why counseling?

We all go through trials in life and everyone experiences anxiety or sadness on some level. If you feel you’ve maxed out your mental capacity when it comes to dealing with your problems, it may be time to seek therapy. Frequent tearfulness, feelings of hopelessness, questions about your existence or loss of desire to participate in previously enjoyed activities can all be signs of depression.

Marquita can help…but only if you take the first step by reaching out. She looks forward to helping you on your life journey!

The investment for a 50 minute clinical (talk therapy) session is $200 and includes Accelerated Resolution Therapy sessions (up to 75 minutes) for established clients as needed. Marquita is not contracted with insurance providers, however, an insurance ready statement (Superbill) can be provided for clients interested in applying the cost of services towards their annual deductible or getting reimbursed through their insurance carrier’s Out-of-Network benefits.
