About

Marla J. Holt, MA, LMFT
(MFT 42698)

In my practice as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I strive to guide and provide support for couples struggling with connection and intimacy issues. By working with the couple and employing Emotionally Focused Therapy, I develop a personalized process and roadmap to help them attain a healthier and more fulfilling relationship.

 

My philosophy embraces an understanding that all therapeutic work must be adapted and suited to confront the ever-changing demands of today's society. With more than 20 years of experience, I've assisted many adults, adolescents and families find the solutions that are both realistic and manageable.  I consider it a privilege to work in joint effort with my clients in order to support and utilize their strengths to safely and compassionately discover a path towards healing and resolution.
