Hi, my name is Marla Bartow and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have recently opened a private practice and am accepting new clients.

I graduated from Southern Oregon University in 1997 with my Bachelor's Degree; majoring in Psychology with a Native American Studies minor. I graduated in 2000 with my master's degree, and a member of Psi Chi, The National Honor Society in Psychology.

As a Yurok tribal member, I looked forward to living and working in Del-Norte County and returning to the birthplace of my father. My work here in Del-Norte County has provided with a vast range of professional experiences working with children and their families and various local agencies. I am excited to combine these experiences along with my academic training to provide comprehensive therapeutic services through my private practice.

As part of developing my practice I have developed a Web site,, to provide general information about my practice and also to provide related links to other Web sites.
