As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing mental health therapy, Marquita (she/her/hers) specializes in helping people manage issues related to anxiety, grief, life transitions, depression, and traumatic experiences. Throughout Marquita’s career, she has worked with people from many walks of life, from those who survived life-threatening events to those working through everyday troubles. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with over 15 years experience as a therapist, Marquita has trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), Trauma-Focused, and other therapy styles. Proudly, Marquita has worked extensively with people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. Marquita's therapeutic work is grounded in intersectional feminism and social justice informed care.
Marquita's private practice is located in the Elkins Park, right outside of Philadelphia. Outside of her office in Elkins Park, she is Executive Director of the Therapy Center of Philadelphia (TCP), a feminist organization that serves women, transgender, and non-binary people.
