Marilyn counsels from a Biblical worldview. She believes that every person is uniquely designed by God with specific gifts, purpose and passion. Because of life’s hurts and our choices, we have hindrances that are difficult to overcome. Marilyn focuses on how to constructively restore her clients to live a well balanced and functional life. She works with individuals, couples and families, setting goals to fulfill the design intended for them.
Marilyn’s daughter, Teresa Lass, who has been on the front lines in parenting challenging kids, is available for coaching. She truly understands and has developed excellent skills in helping parents through the difficult times.
