UGL Welcomes Cassandra Kotajarvi, LMSW, to the Marquette Family Health Center

MARQUETTE, MI – Cassandra Kotajarvi, LMSW, has joined the team of Behavioral Health providers at Upper Great Lakes Marquette Family Health Center (UGL).

Cassandra was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula and attended Northern Michigan University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology Degree with minors in Sociology and Philosophy. She then went on to earn her Master of Social Work Degree from Michigan State University in East Lansing. During her time at MSU, Cassandra had the opportunity to study social policy abroad in Finland. Following graduation, Cassandra began working as a therapist in the Lower Peninsula and then moved to Ann Arbor where she and her husband, Kyle, were married.

The best part of being an LMSW for Cassandra is having the privilege to hold a safe space for each person’s unique journey. “Every day I learn from the people that I work with and it is a humbling experience to be able to connect with so many different people,” says Cassandra, “Social work is often very challenging, but can be equally as rewarding. Every day is different and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be able to give back to the community that I was raised in.”

UGL’s Marquette Family Health Center is located at 1414 W. Fair Avenue, Suite 242, Marquette, MI. For more information about Cassandra’s services, please call 906-449-2900 or speak to your UGL primary care provider.
