Marsha Werner, PsyD, MA, Postdoctoral Resident, LMFT, DBT-C
"I previously worked in corrections and law enforcement, which motivated to instill long-lasting changes for individuals, couples, and families proactively rather than reactively. In addition, I have extensive experience in crisis response and de-escalating crises, working in the school-based day treatment program, and providing other forms of group treatment."
"I earned a Doctor of Psychology from California Southern University (CSU) with my area of expertise in the improvement of mental health treatment for those with stigmatized mental disorders, a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Concordia College, and a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Ashworth University. I am also a veteran of the United States Navy."
"In my spare time, I spend time with my family, work for the mobile mental health crisis team, exercise, listen to the news, eat lots of candy, and read massive amounts of books and research studies. Yes, I did say I read research studies for fun."
Marsha is not accepting new clients at this time.
However, she is receiving referrals for psychological evaluations and takes most insurance.
