About Marina

Marina is a graduate student in the Couples and Family Therapy program at the University of Oregon. She is passionate about the mental health field, and loves working with the staff at Eugene Therapy. Marina views therapy as an opportunity to explore options and hear the client's story. She believes in a strengths-based approach, and does so by supporting the client and understanding their context. Marina operates from a narrative and systemic lens, and is interested a warm, non-blaming environment in which clients can identify their strengths and co-create solutions. She views the therapy process as a chance to work together with a client to determine a path forward. Outside of the office, Marina enjoys bike riding, hiking, painting, and playing piano.
