Marcella Oreta, MS, LMFTA 

Individual and Couples Therapist

Bilingual in Portuguese

Marcella has a passion for working with people, from teen years to adulthood and through the challenges of relationships. Each stage of life presents unique challenges and Marcella seeks to meet you where you are today, to help you create the future you are hoping for. She puts a strong emphasis on joining in with you in the journey of therapy to ensure you are not traveling alone.

Working with Young Adults & Individuals
Becoming an adult is challenging under the best of circumstances, especially as you balance leaving adolescence and learning about adulthood. Perhaps too many changes are creating new stress you did not anticipate. Maybe adulthood is not what you imagined. Or the disconnect is creating questions about your purpose or identity as an adult. Marcella will help you build skills for managing challenging times and will support you in exploring who you are. She is eager to join your journey toward self-discovery, self-love, and a life filled with purpose and meaningful relationships where your values, dreams, and reality are all aligned.

Working with Body Image or Disorder Eating
The relationship we have with ourselves and our body is a relationship we will have for our entire lives. Trauma, societal expectations, and early messages surrounding food and our body deeply impact the relationship we have with our body. Marcella will help you identify negative narratives about your body and replace them with self-compassionate narratives through Health-At-Every-Size and mindfulness-based techniques to repair your relationship with your body and food.

Working with Couples
Do you feel as though you and your partner have the same conversation or argument, time and time again without resolution? Perhaps you are wanting to take your relationship to the next level but are unsure about how to get past the barriers you’re currently facing. Or maybe traumatic experiences from previous  relationships are resurfacing in your current relationship. Every couple deserves to be in a happy, healthy relationship – by using core interventions from Gottman method, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. Marcella will support your relationship toward productive conversations, increased connection, and shared meaning.

How I can Help
As a systems therapist, Marcella aims to see you as a whole person;  understanding how your early relationships, marginalized identities and  experiences impact your life today.  Marcella uses an integrative approach of DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and Experiential Therapy to provide you with new skills to help create healthy experiences that match your values. As an intersectional-feminist therapist, a Latina, and proud daughter of immigrant parents, Marcella has a passion for deconstructing oppressive narratives and systems that impact our daily lives.
