MarisaknightresizedwebI am Marisa Knight, a licensed mental health counselor and I specialize in working with the family and loved ones of those who are struggling with addictive behaviors.

I, too, have loved many people in active addiction (family, friends, significant others) and understand the roller coaster that it can be. I assist you with the skills and tools you need to get through these times, and together, we strategize how to get you to where you want your life to be.

There is no better expert than you when it comes to knowing yourself. However, sometimes we can be too close to a situation to see it clearly, or other factors can be involved that may change our perception in ways that don’t fully serve us.

I use a client-centered approach that helps to guide you by enhancing the skills and resources you already know, as well as teaching you new methods you may not have tried yet. Some of the other techniques I use include RE and CBT (rational emotive behavior therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is an evidenced-based method specifically for trauma, which often goes hand in hand with addictive behaviors.

You can learn more about me at, or can reach me at 561-962-3538. I look forward to connecting!
