A. Maria Marcelin, LCSW, M.Ed
Therapist, Educator, Coach, Fellow Human
Maria is the founder of Deeper Routes, LLC, which provides educational and therapeutic support to individuals, groups, and romantic systems, and consultation to professionals and organizations. She is a licensed clinical social worker currently serving clients in the Greater Philadelphia area, Delaware, and internationally.
She celebrates catering to a clientele diverse in worldview, faith, class/status, country of origin, and neurological and physical presentation in an effort to make healing accessible to all. A seasoned trauma therapist, Maria specializes in working with individuals living with attachment injuries resulting from abuse, neglect, relinquishment and adoption, immigration/relocation, and from personal developments that differentiate or alienate individuals from their families and communities, such as Third Culture Kids. Her work — largely in the form of Narrative Therapy, couples counseling Brainspotting, and EMDR — is relational, systems-focused, data-informed, and anti-racist.
She honors the position she holds as a psychotherapist, a profession with a history riddled with oppressive structures. Maria is passionate about increasing access and choice by reducing the gaps in services available to members of commuities affected by poverty, White supremacy, and misogyny.
