Marisa Talerico

Master’s Intern Counselor

Marisa (they/she) is a provider at our Redmond Medical Center clinic who provides therapy services in-person and via telehealth. They are a second-year graduate student at Bastyr University completing their Master’s of the Arts degree in Counseling Psychology. They are currently accruing experience under the direct supervision of Dr. Fred Wang, LMHC.

Marisa views health from a mind, body, spirit, culture, nature, and social perspective, meaning all facets of being human are connected and considered while exploring the client’s experiences and guiding them to better health. They believe in a collaborative, client-led approach to therapy to work toward the client’s definitions and values of wellness and energetic balance.

Marisa understands life is challenging and we need the right support to steer in the direction of growth. Their theoretical orientation is integrative, flexibly drawing from and intertwining lenses, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, family systems/parts work, attachment and psychodynamic theories, mindfulness, and somatic work, among others, to best serve each client’s unique situation.

Marisa empowers clients through compassionate curiosity and working with the client to cultivate a space where they have trust and freedom to express how they identify themselves, create goals, shift perspectives, and gain self-awareness. They are passionate about helping those who come from marginalized communities to combat the effects of systemic oppression and discrimination. Marisa recognizes discomfort and ups and downs are side effects of healing and wants you to know you are not alone on this nonlinear path.

Marisa is currently accepting individual clients ages 13 and older who are seeking therapy for anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, chronic pain, emotional regulation, life transitions, gender and sexuality issues, interpersonal relationship issues, ethical nonmonogamy challenges, behavioral changes, self-compassion, and work-life balance.
