Marcel Tassara, PhD

Licensed Psychologist
Milwaukee WI
Each one of us, at some point in our lives, faces obstacles to being present. My work focuses on helping people move through their pain and struggles, so that they can live life everyday, not just when the sun is shining. When we are unwilling to accept pain we are experiencing, we suffer. I work with people to help them find ways that resonate with them to be with the full breadth of their human experience - so that they are more able to learn to live life to its fullest. My practice of therapy is guided by my compassion for people, my belief in our resiliency, and my commitment to helping others live life to its fullest.
I am from Milwaukee and grew up bilingual (English, Spanish). I received my bachelors degree in Nutritional Science from Bastyr University, my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas, and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Marquette University in 2014. I have served a diverse range of people over the course of my career. Prior to starting my private practice I worked serving primarily Latino immigrants in community mental health agencies in Milwaukee, Miami, Seattle, and Kansas.
