Patient Testimonials

"We worked with Dr. Marques over the past year and she is completely AMAZING on every dimension. She was able to help our child recover from traumatic events which could have scarred her for life. Dr. Marques' brilliant insights, disciplined and focused (yet flexible) methodology and totally caring and engaged approach achieved miracles. In addition, during that period she was INCREDIBLE at helping us first hold together, and then deeply strengthen both our marriage and parenting! Our gratitude is impossibly to fully express. Since then, we have referred other friends to her, and in every situation they have reported back that it is the greatest give we could ever have given!"
