Marina Teruel (she/her)

Hi! I’m Marina Teruel (she/her). I am a psychotherapist-in-training and I am currently completing my practicum at Roamers Therapy under the supervision of Shaysa Villa, LCSW. 

We are lucky enough to have unique experiences in life that shape us into the individual we are. Some experiences can be joyful while others can be difficult. It may be easy for difficult experiences to overshadow the good; no two persons’ experiences affect them the same. I aim to celebrate each person’s unique identities in a safe environment while supporting them on their mental health journey.

I strive to support individuals by using a variety of approaches including the Psychodynamic method and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It is important that my client and I have built a safe and growth centered environment specifically catered to them. I will actively listen to the needs of my clients and promote growth but at my client’s pace. There is no rush on an individual’s mental health journey. Together in this space we will approach any anxiety, trauma, depression, poor habits, and overall any difficult subjects an individual may have. 

Facing difficulties in one’s life is not an easy task; it is okay to want support along the way. Reaching out for that support is a big step in your mental health journey–I appreciate that you have considered me in that step. I will do my very best to support you and your needs. Congratulations on your start to your journey! I hope we can connect soon. 

Things that bring me joy

Reading, dancing, singing, painting, going to the gym, and volunteering at various organizations, especially my sorority.
