Marianne Bartos

I have worked in the mental health field for the last 20+ years. I started out working with children and families as a TSS (therapeutic staff support) and then a BSC (behavioral support consultant) performing in-home services. I went on to work with inpatients at a local Hospital on the Behavioral Health Unit serving patients and families, facilitating groups to help patients process issues, and teach coping skills.
I took my training in meditation and mindfulness to help with group facilitation of those suffering from cancer and their caregivers. In the interim, I earned a Masters in Clinical & Counseling Psychology and did an internship using animal-assisted and expressive arts therapies. Earning my Licensed Professional Counselors standing at Chestnut Hill College, I went on to conduct assessments and provide individuals and families using a wide variety of therapy methods, including those for dealing with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and trauma.
My specialty is working with Adult Children of Alcoholics, as I see a great deal of children, adolescents, and adults who are dealing with that particular set of troubles. My goal as a therapist is to develop a connection with all clients. It is a shared experience where clients can explore a life that can be more satisfying and fulfilling. Together, we can develop an environment where everyone can reach that potential and believe in that power of change.
