Marilyn Tenney, LPC, has many years of experience as a therapist.  She specializes in working with individuals who have experienced trauma and continue to be effected by it.

She also works with couples and families to help them break out of self-destructive cycles and she helps marriages heal from the effects of hurt and pain caused by negative emotional experiences.
