Ndunge Marquardt | LPC
My personal and professional style is warm, disarming, compassionate, and empowering. These characteristics, in addition to my diverse personal and professional experiences enable me to build meaningful connections with people from all backgrounds. The relationship between you and your therapist is the most important piece of therapy and I work to create a supportive and safe space for you to explore and grow. I will work with you to set goals, explore the issues and conflicts keeping you stuck, and develop practical skills and plans to make the necessary changes.
I have experience working with men, women, and couples on depression, anxiety, grief, shame, communication, family relationships, and boundaries. Whatever brings you in, I believe that healing is possible. There is hope and I want to help you get from where you are to where you’d like to be. Call me today to begin your journey!
