“Marcus is a solid and competent therapist who helps men and women with both their personal and relationship issues. He’s like a specialized mechanic in helping people get “unstuck” in that he’s intuitive, skilled and practical in his approach… while knowing how to be a really good listener and still doing the deeper work. I recommend him highly.”
