Marc Fernandez, LMFT
Marc views the therapeutic process as a road to greater self-awareness and clarity leading to new opportunities for desirable and lasting change to occur. Through his experience working with individuals, couples and families from varying backgrounds, he thoroughly acknowledges each individual’s own unique life experience and narrative and how it plays a role during therapy.
Marc believes in the eudaemonistic ability of each individual within their system. Eudaemonia can be defined as “human flourishing.”
He is able to provide counseling in both English and Spanish. Along with his work at North Brooklyn MFT, Marc works in the not-for-profit sector on Long Island, where he operates a couples and family therapy practice called Family First.
Marc earned his Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Iona College, a COAMFTE accredited university and earned his Bachelor’s degree from the University at Buffalo, where he majored in Psychology and Spanish Language and Literature.
Marc is certified to lead the evidence-based Strengthening Families Program. He is a certified Prepare-Enrich counselor with premarital counseling experience. Marc is also a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT.org), an AAMFT Approved Supervisor and a member of the American Family Therapy Academy.
