Marianna Jakucska has been a licensed marriage and family
therapist since December 2014. She got her Bachelor of Arts degree at San
Francisco State University in Psychology and her two minor focus-of-interest in
Philosophy of Religion and Religious Studies. She received her Master of Arts

She is originally from Hungary and she finished her high school education
there. She moved to the U.S. in 1993, lived in New York, then moved to the East
Bay, California in 2003. She has been a Sacramento resident since 2015.
Marianna worked at Alameda County Crisis Support Services in
Oakland and counseled many people who called the crisis hotline. She acted as a
milieu counselor for adults using substances at New Bridge Foundation in
Berkeley. In Sacramento, she was employed by WellSpace Health and provided
much-needed trauma counseling to children, young adults and their caregivers as
well as to parents who were mandated to counseling by CPS. She also provided
therapy at Lions Heart Counseling. Since February of this year, she is in her
private practice full time.
Next year? Marianna is aiming for the Secretary position at
SVC-CAMFT to give back to the Community that has provided so much support to
her. While developing her private practice with a focus on coaxing creative
thinking from her clients, that integrates the intuitive and symbolic language
of emotions and the critical, questioning language of reason, she hopes she has
gained enough wit to fulfill this position to benefit the Sacramento therapist
