LISA JILL MARCUS

I recognize the mind-body connection and the dynamics of human attachments; and support the vibrancy and uniqueness of my patients. I believe that integrity, wisdom, the capacity to play and love, and the freedom to pursue what you desire, are just some of the benefits of good psychotherapy. 

 

'We cannot be taught wisdom; we have to discover it for ourselves on a journey which no one can undertake for us, an effort which no one can spare us.'

Marcel Proust
