Marie Rothman, Owner and Lead Therapist

Marie Rothman is a Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Board Certified Counselor (NCC), and EMDRIA Certified Therapist and Approved Consultant in EMDR with over 25 years of experience as a mental health provider. Marie is an in-network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), as well as sees self-pay clients.

As a solution-focused therapist, Marie’s goal is to help her clients uncover their true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While no one can change difficult situations of the past, Marie works together with her clients to better understand and resolve challenges in their life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, Marie and her clients will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding her clients back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Marie specializes in Individual and Group Therapy, Couples Counseling, Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Stress, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Trauma, Chemical Dependency (Alcohol and Drug), Eating Disorders, Codependency, Divorce Recovery, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Adult Child of Alcoholic issues. 

Many issues that clients face, particularly those rooted in trauma, can be effectively addressed by using EMDR. Through the process of EMDR, Marie is able to desensitize trauma and negative life events so that her clients can experience life in a wholly transformative way.

Rachael Walker, LPC

Meet Rachael Walker, the newest counselor to join The Wellness Institute. Rachael has worked with teens and adults for over 8 years as a counselor. She previously worked as a teacher for 10 years. As a non-denominational counselor, Rachael works within the areas of a person’s psychological, biological, physical, and spiritual dimensions in order to achieve whole-person healing.

Rachael incorporates brain science throughout her counseling. Rachael and her clients co-create and discover an individualized healing path to guide clients as they learn new skills for navigating life. The quality of our relationships equals the quality of our lives; this is a core belief for Rachael. Rachael is committed and passionate about helping adults and teens recognize and recover from pathological (toxic) love relationships. She also specializes in the following: post traumatic growth from PTSD, overcoming trauma/emotional wounds and creating resilience and resourcefulness, defeating depression and anxiety, thriving in sobriety, creating healthy relationships, understanding attachment bonds in family of origin (and how that affects current relationships), overcoming abandonment by a parent/spouse, thriving after divorce and within blended families, understanding causes of health instead of causes of disease, accepting reality and adjusting accordingly, and carrying on after grief and loss. Rachael also has a heart for working with the military.

Living with peace of mind is living without toxic emotions. Learning to make peace with the past, enjoying present moment awareness, and embracing the future provides peace of mind.
