Marcilla loves working on family & relationship issues.

We do not live in a bubble-we impact and are impacted by those closest to us. This amazing reality can be what sustains us and keeps us healthy, or, when relationships are strained and conflicted, it can be what keeps us stuck. The work we do at Flourish can help the family and individuals become “unstuck” by restoring healthy connections and bonds.”
