Marian Redsun, LCSW-S, RPT-S

Philosophy of Care

Marian is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Supervisor and Registered Play Therapy Supervisor with a Masters of Social Work from California State University at Long Beach. She works with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and parents.

Marian began her career over 25 years ago working with military families.  Since then, she has worked in the family court system with adoptions both foreign and domestic as well as with families going through the divorce process.  

Marian has worked in the field of education from pre-k to college.  As a play therapist, she appreciates that children don’t have the words that adults do and enjoys establishing a quick rapport with her younger clients.  Marian understands the impact attachment has in relationships.  She has a lot of training in trauma work and is trained in EMDR.  Unresolved trauma follows us and colors our ability to effectively deal with events that happen to us throughout our lifetimes. No one gets through this life without challenges . She has found that we can all get ‘stuck’ in unhealthy patterns but there are effective tools that can enable us to move through to better functioning. 

Marian uses a client centered, strengths based approach and believes that the best therapeutic relationship works as a team in identifying additional tools to add to the toolkit.  Life is about learning from our past experiences so that they don’t limit our future.  Every one of us is entitled to live the best life possible.
