Marisa Costa, MET, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Pittsburgh
Each of us has intrinsic worth and our hearts and psyches have the ability to heal. My work with adults of all ages draws on the expressive arts, motivational and strengths-based therapies and cognitive behavioral and trauma-informed therapies. One of my passions has been exploring the ways in which the expressive arts - visual art, drama, music, movement, writing - touch us deeply and express emotions for which there may simply be no words. Where the response to suffering is compassion and hope, the goals of the individual - not the therapist - inspire the therapeutic process.
The resilience of the human mind and spirit has long inspired me. Resilience in diverse individuals can manifest in many ways: healthy expressions of disclosure and coping, the cultivation of gratitude, the discovery of personal gifts and strengths.
My twenty years in mental health care include helping individuals to address depression and anxiety, manage stress, survive trauma, move through grieving, practice self-care, confront relationship issues, and explore spiritual concerns. I have learned that the process of healing is multifaceted and never-ending.
