Relationship Harmony

Marialena Malejan-Roussere
Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Group Psychotherapist



Life presents us with endless opportunities to expand, stretch and grow.  While change can feel scary, challenging, awkward and uncertain, it can also be exciting, rewarding, and healing.  People possess an intrinsic need to have their experience validated - to be seen, heard, and recognized as valuable beings.  The therapeutic relationship developed in counseling offers this validation as a basis for investigation and healing.  Together, we can create a safe haven to discover the fullest expression of you.  

Therapy will help reveal the ways in which you help and hinder yourself, illuminate your patterns of coping and relating, and deepen your understanding of how you work in the world.  By cultivating confidence in your self, communication of your thoughts, feelings and needs becomes second nature. Through therapeutic dialogue and supportive relationship, you can create bold action on your own behalf, making choices that serve your greatest good, and respond to your life’s challenges with strength and compassion.  I offer support to help you manage issues, find solutions, break patterns and create more of the life you want.
