About

Meet Marvi

My formal work in the mental health field began in the Northeast, where I lived for 17 years. I worked with teens battling addiction in treatment homes and with adolescents suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in residential homes. I was the founding member of the Women’s Crisis Center Outreach Program of Greater Newburyport, Massachusetts, counseling teens experiencing dating violence, rape and negative self- image issues. I have presented numerous workshops on these topics as well as trainings and workshops on conscious parenting. I also have experience in counseling women suffering from physical and emotional abuse.

I am a native of the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. I graduated from Southwestern University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Theatre. I have been a high school teacher and an educational curriculum editor for high school. I received my Master’s degree from St. Edward’s University in Austin and am certified as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor.

I am a provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Humana, and Aetna.
