Tiffany Leigh Westcott Marsh, age 47, passed away on December 3, 2016 at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri after a six month illness.
Tiffany was a gifted Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor for more than 20 years. She focused her life work in helping children and adolescents that were struggling with mental health issues.
Tiffany started her career working as a Crisis Interventionist with Children's Home and Aid Society. She would later transition into the Child Family Therapist at Gateway Regional Medical Center working on the inpatient unit and providing outpatient counseling. Tiffany co-facilitated the HEROS program where she worked with local Fire Departments to address issues with Juvenile Fire setters. Tiffany worked closely with School Social Workers throughout the Metro East area to transition children and adolescents back into their school environment.
In 2001, Tiffany along with two colleagues started Cornerstone Counseling in Maryville, Illinois. She embraced this new venture as an opportunity to help young people address issues before they were in a critical state. She provided groups as well as individual counseling for individuals struggling with loss and grief, mood disorders, ADHD, as well as family issues and parenting challenges.
Tiffany was the past President of Illinois Counselors Association (Southern Region). She was very devoted to promoting the counseling association and bringing excellence to the Chapter. Tiffany was a tremendous asset and advocate for mental health issues to the Illinois Counselors Association.
Tiffany devoted her life's work to enriching the lives of others. She took pride in knowing that she had made an impact that help young people learn how to better cope and succeed. Tiffany was a "Big Sister" and loved the time that she spent with her "little sis" Alyssa Weller.

I am so sad to hear of her passing. I worked with her at Gateway and continued to see her at ICA conferences. She had such a kind loving spirit and helped so many children.

So sorry to hear of Tiffany's passing. She was a blessing to so many young people, may God wrap His arms around her until we all meet her again. Condolences to Kyle and Pat, here's trusting that God will send His Holy Spirit to give both of you peace at this difficult time.

I met Tiffany in 1997 when we were both employed as therapists at St. Elizabeth Medical Center. Through the years she was my mentor, consultant, colleague, and friend. The children in southwest Illinois who are consumers of behavioral health counseling services have truly lost an advocate and friend; however, may we all be saddened less by death knowing that hundreds of children and families, if not more, were transformed by Tiffany's care and compassion...I believe the world is a better place because of her work. She will be greatly missed.

Spent many summers with both Valerie and Tiffany. I kept in touch with Tiffany throughout college. One of the best parts of my career is when her office was across from my classroom. For years we would catch up briefly every once in awhile but it always seemed like no time had ever past. I will miss her very much..

What a shock. She was an amazing woman who worked tirelessly to make the local chapter of the Illinois Counseling Association a resounding success during her long tenure. She will be missed tremendously.

A piece of my heart is gone because I've always thought of Tiffany as another daughter. I love her and Kyle so much. She will live on in my heart and memories until we meet again. I'm sure she was welcomed by Monty and those whom have gone on before her but most of all into the heavenly arms of our Lord and Savior.
