My name is Marissa Nelson and I am the Master Therapist and facilitator of IntimacyMoons. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist, I graduated with a BS in Sociology and a Minor in Communications from my alma mater Florida State University. I hold a Master's in Marriage & Family Therapy from Drexel University, and received a Certificate in Sexual Health & Sex Therapy from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Upon graduation, I decided to open my private practice, and fulfilled one of my dreams of creating a diverse and multicultural practice in downtown Washington DC. Anyone that knows me understands how dedicated I am to this work, and I was lucky enough to treat couples and singles with a variety of life and relationship issues, and experienced amazing success.
I'm a member of The American Association of Marriage & Family Therapists (AAMFT), American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), The Association of Black Sexologists and Clinicians (ABSC) and have a certificate in Divorce Mediation & Conflict Resolution.
Personally, I am a life-long learner, passionate about my work as a therapist, and fiercely loyal to my friends and family. I'm a huge foodie (Philly being my favorite US foodie city), lover of local art, and I still cry my eyes out at any wedding I have the pleasure of attending.
