My name is Steve Marlin and I am thrilled to be able to offer 7 Tree to this community with our incredible team. I believe that we are all in the right time and the right place to be bringing a variety of effective methods for health and healing to everyone in our community and to others remotely.
I bring to the table vast experience and knowledge in both the physical and mental health fields.
I am a person who brings great depth to the table through a collection of experiences across my lifetime – all adding to the person I am today and all integrated into the work I will do with you.
My professional journey includes graduating from the University of Western Ontario in Psychology, completing certification as a Clinical Traumatologist, being a certified personal trainer with specializations working with those with chronic pain as well as seniors, working extensively with youth at risk and people with developmental challenges and complex diagnoses and supporting adults through mental health crisis. I am also trained in classical violin, played competitive hockey, and am a musician who integrates music into my professional practice along with its profound healing impact.
As someone who has survived trauma myself, who is an adopted person and who has persevered through athletic injuries – my lived experience, paired with my education, allows clients to connect with myself and themselves in a deep way.
My approach is centred around creating a safe, and trusting space for you to share your personal journey. In addition, I bring my real authentic self into my work with you, through openness, transparency and presence.
I offer the following integrative services:
Personal Training (trauma-informed option, chronic pain or senior specialization), Compassion Fatigue Support (caring for the caregiver), Crisis Management Planning (individual, couples, family), Adoption Support Specialist.
It is an honor to do what I do – to be a small part of amazing transformations is truly inspiring and is what I am passionate about.
I believe in my core that everyone deserves to be supported in their most painful moments and to experience meaningful and purposeful healing. I also believe that this can be accomplished through talking with a professional and/or through the power of physical fitness though the body.
