What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. The goal of my psychoanalytic, solution-focused, strength-based psychotherapy approach is to stimulate and initiate a healthy inner dialogue around troublesome, challenging mental health and psychic conditions, and help individuals navigate ways to a more balanced, wholesome self and a satisfying quality of life.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Marcia Umbarger is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC)who has many years of experience working with adults, veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or military sexual trauma (MST), and adolescents.

She attended the University of North Texas (UNT).Marcia was born and raised in The Hague, The Netherlands, so she also provides therapy for Dutch speakers. Are you experiencing stress, feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, and lonely? Have you resorted to substances alone to deal with life? Are you having issues communicating with your significant other? Are you lost in life and too stressed or lonely to make changes? Do you have longstanding issues, perhaps maybe from childhood, that have not been manageable? Do you need help figuring out who you are, and what you would love to do with your life? Marcia is here to help you soothe excessive worrying, sadness, loneliness, fears, addictions, and/or anger, or anything that keeps you from functioning in life. She will provide a safe, warm, and trusting environment. Marcia uses a variety of therapy methods including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, reality therapy, and psychoanalytic/Jungian therapy. When dealing with longstanding issues, especially from childhood, Marcia uses a combination of psychoanalysis, analytical/Jungian, reality therapy, and CBT to help you make changes to yourself and your life.
