Dr. Marché D. Gomes

Dr. Marche’ Gomes is a Resident in Counseling with Fountain of Hope Counseling Center LLC. In 2005, She graduated from Hampton University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. November 2010, received her Master’s in Forensic Psychology from Argosy University, December 2020, received her PhD. in Counseling and Human Services, and June 2023, she received her Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy both from Capella University.

Marche’ began her career in the public school system working with adolescents as a Behavioral Therapist for the Hampton-Newport News Community Service Board. Following that experience she began and continues to work for the Virginia Department of Corrections as a Psychology Associate. Working in the Mental Health field for approximately 15 years she has developed an understanding of the importance of mental health support, be it within the school system, community, or in the judicial system. She has found through her professional experience that family support is as important, and/or more important than the support of an individual, hence her pursuing the Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Marche’ currently works with clients to assist them with bringing structure, understanding, and ways to effectively communicate with individuals they encounter in their day to day lives. She specializes in Structural Therapy which focuses on the interaction between family members by looking at the family as a system, that encourages adjustments in the rules, roles, and boundaries to improve their functionality. Marche’ comprehends that seeking Mental Health services in some communities can be scary and frowned upon, although it is her goal to not only normalize seeking mental health services, but to also make the experience as fluid, and comfortable as possible.
