I’m Marian, and I provide Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy in Denver. I help couples find what they’ve lost and face life together again, as a team.
As an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist in Denver, I specialize in helping you both dig deep to really get at the underlying cause of the distance you feel in your relationship. It is usually more complicated than we think. The things that are really bothering us surface in ways that actually create more conflict and distance in the relationship. This is where I feel I do my best work. My colleagues describe me as very grounded, and couples feel comfortable exploring tough topics with me. If you are searching for someone who is fully trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy in Denver, I’m happy that you found me.
I actually have a background in business and accounting, so couples therapy is my second career. Because of that, I am uniquely able to help couples address financial concerns in their relationships in ways that other couples therapists cannot. This may include helping couples to discuss their finances, develop a budget, and understand how to talk about money without getting stuck in the same old ways.
I am also a certified Hypnotherapist with over 400 hours of training. I occasionally use this with people to unearth and heal the deeper issues that are impacting them as a couple. We can also work on things that are holding you back in your career and habits. But, don’t worry! You won’t quack like a duck or dance like a chicken! Hypnotherapy is actually a deep state of clarity and relaxation that allows us to clear the mental chatter and see what’s underneath. If you have questions about whether incorporating some hypnotherapy into your couples therapy is right for you, we can have a free half-hour therapy consultation where you can learn more.

I have an undergraduate degree from Baylor University in Accounting, as well as a Masters degree in Taxation. After working in the business world for 20 years, I decided to make some life changes and went back to school to specialize in offering Individual and Couples Therapy in Denver.
For 15 years I owned a consulting firm, and my time was consumed by traveling throughout the US, Latin America, and Europe. I was tired of traveling and longed for a closer connection with my partner, which wasn’t easy when I was gone for most of the week. When we decided to start a family I mustered the courage to start over in a new direction with my career. The gift of being more present in my relationships, both physically and emotionally, was so transformational that I knew I wanted to help others deepen these same connections in their own lives. Now, I feel fortunate to incorporate my experience as a consultant and my advanced specialization in couples therapy in my work. I joined A Peaceful Life Counseling to offer Individual and Couples Therapy in Denver. I look forward to being part of this exceptional team who is dedicated to helping couples in all stages of healing.
I am a Couples Therapist in Denver (Lakewood), a Registered Psychotherapist, and hold Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and am an active member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), and International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist.
