Meet Marisol Villagrana, LSW

Hi! I’m Marisol Villagrana, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Intern (LSWI), and I’m excited to join Emotional & Relationship Health Counseling Associates in Reno.

Originally from Oregon, I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy from the University of Oregon. Before pursuing my master’s, I spent several years working in mental health. Inspired by my son, I decided to earn my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Denver. During my studies, I provided therapy to adults in rural Oregon, utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and incorporating elements of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Moreover, I taught mindfulness exercises and distress tolerance skills.

As a bilingual, Latina therapist in Reno, I offer services in both English and Spanish language.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my pets – two huskies and two cats. If you need compassionate and dedicated support, I’m here to help. Therefore, I invite you to contact me to schedule a session or learn more about how we can work together. My standard session fee is $100.

Con Sheehan, LCSW does attachment-based EFFT, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy in Reno. Con was recently a guest on the Communicate and Connect Podcast.

Ep. 50 with Con Sheehan on Emotionally Focused Family Therapy

In The Communicate and Connect Podcast for Military Relationships, marriage counselor Dr. Elizabeth Polinsky explains relationship science and discusses educational tips for improving your relationship and navigating military family life.

From Dr. Polinsky: “In this podcast you’ll find insights into how children cope with feelings of caregiver inaccessibility and how this can influence their behavior and life choices, including the risks of substance use. We also discuss specific challenges faced by military families, such as managing parental roles during deployment and the unique stresses that can impact both children and parents.

To aid our understanding, Con shares examples from his practice, focusing on creating a family environment where each member’s needs are understood and met. We’ll emphasize the importance of repair, availability, and intentional parenting—even discussing how therapy, even short-term, can be instrumental for families.”
