Hi! I’m Ndunge Marquardt and I am a licensed professional counselor. I am excited that you are interested in counseling and taking steps toward growth. It takes an immense amount of courage and strength to reach out when you’re feeling overwhelmed. It is my joy to partner with people on their journeys toward healing and wholeness. What motivates me most in counseling is the opportunity to help people resolve the issues, conflicts, and losses that keep them from living the lives they want.
I want to partner with you in this exciting, challenging, and rewarding journey because I believe it’s worth it! My personal and professional style is warm, compassionate, and encouraging. These characteristics, in addition to my diverse personal and professional experiences, enable me to build meaningful connections with people from all backgrounds. The relationship between a client and his or her therapist is the most important piece of therapy, and I am committed to creating a positive and safe space for you to explore and grow. I will work with you to set goals, explore the issues and conflicts keeping you stuck, and develop practical skills and plans to make the necessary changes.
I truly feel that no situation is too great to overcome; I’ve helped individuals and couples experience healing in the areas of depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, communication, family relationships, and boundaries, to name a few. Whatever the issue that brings you in, I believe that healing is possible. There is hope and it is not too late to start living the life you want!
