“I have known, worked with, and made referrals to Marinna for 27 years. I have been her clinical supervisor for her work as a psychotherapist for almost four years.
In my opinion, Marinna is an individual of the highest moral caliber, a natural empath, a superb clinician, and a perpetual student devoted to improving her professional and clinical skills for the rest of her life. It has been a pleasure knowing and working with her. I would trust her to treat my family and friends, and can think of no higher praise I can bestow upon a colleague.”
- Dr. Neil Marinello, Solution-focused Life Coach, Retired Psychologist, Woodstock, VT
“I had a freak auto accident one morning. Although relatively unharmed, I awoke the next day crying uncontrollably, my symptoms worsening till they were psychologically paralyzing. Instinctively I remembered the energy work Marinna did, especially her work with people who’ve experienced trauma. And luckily she was able to see me that same day.
During that one appointment she helped to relieve me of all the trauma symptoms by using talk and energy therapy. My PTSD symptoms were completely gone! I have very high regard for Marinna’s ability to listen to her clients and use her formal training in unison with her wonderful intuitive abilities to help people heal. Marinna is a gifted, compassionate, and highly intuitive healer.”

“Marinna has done such amazing work with me. She’s been great helping me with the life-controlling anxieties I’ve had for years.
During a recent talk session and the energy /massage therapy that followed it, I experienced a lot of release, as if something negative or dark was leaving me. This was replaced by a yellow bright light. Afterward I felt awesome. Since then I’ve felt less anxiety.”

“I so glad you have the knowledge and the skills and the heart to do this work. I think it has helped me grow so much.
I remember when I going through years of unsatisfactory therapy. I dreamed of someone, a therapist, who would have a table for me to lie down on, someone who’d someone who’d provide touch for me and talk therapy as well. I never dreamed I would actually find someone like this, but these are the things you do for me and I am so grateful.”
- Kelly H., Domestic Care, Upper Valley, VT
“Psychotherapy with Marinna has been very helpful. I’ve been able to find different ways to deal with my stress, to calm down in my busy life and take care of myself. The blending of massage and energy therapy with counseling has been wonderful and healing.
When I come here to see Marinna, I feel taken care of both physically and emotionally. Thinking about how she’s able to connect with me reminds me of someone who’s written about “true listening” which involves connecting with the divine in the other person. That’s what I feel about Marinna, that she connects to the divine working in me.”
- J. White, Upper Valley, VT
“Because my first experience with energy work was so remarkable, I feel compelled to share it. I was at friend’s house and about to go to the hospital, having been extremely sick, when Marinna arrived. She found me and offered to do energy work with me. New to such a process, I was desperate enough to say yes.
With her treatment, the weakness and fatigue left my body, my heart and breathing rate returned to normal, and my eyes had become clear. This was a complete turn around. I felt so good that I felt like celebrating. When our friends saw me, they said exclaimed, “You look like yourself again.” and “What an about face you’ve taken!” I highly recommend her to anyone. My only regret is that Marinna doesn’t live in Florida!”
- Simon Binnie, Tequesta, FL
“I was amazed the day after our session and even now. After it, I felt that I was walking upright and walking tall. I felt that I could stand my ground and that my body was being supported by its energy.
This was a high for me. I feel good now and and experience boosted self esteem. This was very much needed.”
