The Adventure Therapist

because therapy cats aren't always the answer

Hi. I'm Marissa. I left a stable, corporate job to become a therapist. Like most people, I'm still trying to figure it all out while working on my own mental health. I'm sharing my attempts at using travel, adventure, and being in nature to find more alive-ness. And also sharing what I learn on the never-ending journey to become a better therapist. I hope you find something here that helps you in some way. Thanks for visiting the site!
