03.18.2014. Everyone Thinks I’m Normal. Cara Marinucci is a Licensed Professional Counselor who grew up exploring the outdoors with an abundant curiosity for the natural world in all it’s diversity. Moving from the snow of Rochester, NY to the sandy beaches of Ft. Lauderdale, FL to the rolling hills of Switzerland of Ohio provided a physical journey that engaged her innate sense of adventure and a connection of the inner world to the outer world. Cara brings that experience into her work as she shares her passion for “living the questions” that present on the journey while immersing in the active process of living one’s life. Cara received her Bachelor’s degree from Marietta College and a Master’s in Counseling from Shippensburg University. She is in private practice in Charlottesville, Va and has over twenty years experience working with adults, adolescents, families, groups, and organizations to facilitate successful transformation and growth. She has an extensive background providing and implementing services across the spectrum of wellness and clinical care, including work with organizations and schools. This has given her an appreciation for the many ways people can access resiliency, create solutions, and develop their capacity for change.
Ms. Marinucci is a Fellow and Primary Trainer of the Association for Music and Imagery.

Her ongoing focus is to deepen her mastery of integrating expressive arts and mind-body techniques for healing, transformation, spirituality, and creativity.
