I am a licensed professional counselor in Texas with over 14 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I am also currently licensed as a counselor in the state of Louisiana. I have a wide array of experience working with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I am a expert in my field and I helped many individuals overcome situational barriers such as abuse/trauma, job stress, divorce, blended families, relocation/transition and more.
My counseling style is compassionate, patient, non-judgmental and client centered. I am sensitive to the needs of all my clients. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, christian counseling, and client centered counseling. I will incorporate a specific needs based treatment plan to help you get your best foot forward.
Healing, extra support, reflection, positive changes, and guidance is just moments within reach!
I look forward to working with you!

Marquita was very helpful when I was going through some rough times at work and thinking about making a transition. Her thoughtfulness and affirmation meant the world to me and helped me to let go of some of the weight I was carrying. I’m forever grateful!

I lost my mom last year and Marquita is the first therapist I’ve spoken to since then and wow. I can’t even explain in words how she made me feel. She made me feel heard, understood, no judgment, and all with the best advice! I literally felt like I was talking to a friend. She listened when I needed her to and gave advice when I needed it. This experience has changed me for the better and without her, I wouldn’t have had a breakthrough like I did right now. I’m so happy with who BetterHelp paired with me!

I really enjoyed working with Marquita it was as if I was speaking to a long time friend. Marquita gave me the space to speak freely and was a great listener. She provided great insight and advice to some of the issues I had brought up during our sessions.

Marquita is very thoughtful and helpful. She does not make me feel nervous. I feel open to speaking to her and can share my genuine feelings with her. She is non judgemental.
