Services/How may I support you?
EAST RIVER COUNSELING, INC.--PRIVATE PRACTICE: Marcie has been in private practice in the Gunnison Valley for 26 years. She draws from a wide range of traditional and integrative counseling and psychotherapy approaches. Each of these modalities respects the whole person, offers empathy and compassion and helps clients recognize their intrinsic strengths and their motivation to change.
Through Jungian and classical depth psychology, we discover the dreams, metaphors, symbols and stories of your family and your personal Psyche as they influence, guide and can potentially transform your current life. Through Positive Psychology we can identify and build the behaviors that lead to well-being and your most powerful growth. Through A.C.T. or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy we may practice Mindfulness meditation and other stress-relieving and balancing exercises to help release anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions and habits of thinking or behavior which prevent us from living our most meaningful lives.
Particular specialties include Men’s Issues, Women in Life/Relationship Transition, Relocation Adjustment and Marriage, Couples’ and Prenuptial Communication and Intimacy development and enhancement.
As the only Registered Expressive Arts Therapist on the Western Slope Marcie can assist children, adolescents, adults and families in expressing and communicating difficult, charged or previously undeveloped awareness of self and others through visual art, writing, journaling and Somatic or Body Movement Experiencing. As a Certified Group Psychotherapist Marcie helps groups create therapeutic and supportive counseling processes for the specific needs of families, organizations and businesses/Employee Assistance Programs.
