I am Marcie Wagner, it was by design that I became a psychotherapist. By an early age I noticed my mother’s gift of mindful listening, helping other women in our neighborhood with her kitchen table psychotherapy. I remember being intrigued, witnessing this natural, organic, communal experience back then. Now, many years later, as an educated psychotherapist, I find myself in a similar role and am still awe struck and amazed at the process of psychotherapy, how it can truly change lives for the better.
I feel honored to have attended one of the few Humanistic Psychology schools in the United States, founded by Clark Moustakes, “the father of the humanistic Psychotherapy”. I attended the Center for Humanistic Studies in Detroit where I obtained a Masters degree in Humanistic Clinical Psychology and I have been practicing the past 20 years. Humanistic Psychotherapy has the core tenets of self actualization, authenticity, creativity, health, individuality, intrinsic nature, self, being, becoming and meaning.
I work with the WHOLE person, MBS… Mind, body and spirit.
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes”.
~Carl Gustav Jung
I have found over the years that treating the WHOLE person in psychotherapy is the most optimal way to heal (MBS). In my practice the focus is on mind, body and spirit. People pursuing holistic therapy may become better attuned to self -awareness, the many interior parts working in concert with each-other, which can often promote a greater acceptance of the self.
