Celia Marchese

Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Qualified Supervisor

Born and raised in Maryland, Celia has lived in Sarasota since 1994. She has been married for over 30 years and has raised two daughters. “My goal after raising my daughters was to return to college. That journey led me to earn my Bachelor’s degree and later Master’s degree at the University of South Florida. Through that process and growth, I realized that you are never too old to set and accomplish new life goals.”

Celia’s experiences as a wife and parent has given her real-life insight to many of the challenges associated with raising a family and how best to navigate through life’s stages.

“I came to the realization, that there is no perfection, and engaging in therapy can provide a parent with invaluable information and guidance.”

Celia is dedicated to working with individuals, couples, and families to help through various challenges in life through communication approaches, and problem-solving within the family structure. With the right approach, change is always possible.
