Self-discovery is a unique journey that we all take. Whether we’re entering high school, college, or our profession, we tend to engage in a reflective process as various questions arise. How do I make friends at the new school? Who am I? What am I going to study? Inevitably, these transitions influence our existing relationships with family, partners, friends and lead us to examine these areas in our lives. Individual, family and couple therapy can be an integral part of working through challenges that occur in relationships, all of which I fully embrace on the therapeutic journey.

My formal name is Margaret but everyone calls me Peggy. I love to work with clients who are exploring who they are. Perhaps you feel like you have moments of feeling lonely and stuck? Perhaps your life events have made you feel separate and different from others? Maybe you have trouble focusing and your concentration can be spotty? You wonder how others see you and you want to fit in.

I specialize in working with families, couples, and children & adolescents. I strive to form relationships with my clients built upon trust, authenticity and collaboration. Working together we are able to open and expand possibilities to heal from pain, transform destructive cycles, and grow towards richer, more satisfying lives and relationships. Relationships often get stuck because we are unaware of ways we have hurt others and been hurt ourselves. Sometimes our best efforts to make things better seem to exacerbate the problem. I work to raise insight, facilitate healing, and open possibilities to connect in more satisfying ways.

Do you often make decisions that you later regret, and you're not sure why you made the particular decision in the first place? Do you often feel emotions that don't make sense to you, and you don't know what to do with the feelings? Do you find it hard to understand why your life isn't the way you want it to be, or why you aren't the person you would like to be?

I have come to realization that we all need tools and guidance to navigate through life. As a therapist, I see myself as an ally who will help you to better understand your own choices and to cope with the changes in your life. As human beings, we value happiness, and we reject feeling sad, angry, nervous. As we experience these “negative feelings “, we become frustrated with ourselves, even angry. Nobody wants to be anything but happy. What if we were able to accept those “other feelings” for what they are...Therapy helps to better understand the moments in which changes seem overwhelming and unnecessary. Therapy helps to simply “sit with those feelings”, no judgement; just observing. I can help you to be in a place in your life where you can feel more comfortable with who you are, where you can become more aware of your capacities and more accepting of your own struggles. You are the expert on your own life. My job is only to assist you through therapy in your journey to self discover, acceptance and letting go.....

My aim in psychotherapy is to meet you where you are. I work with many difficulties, including anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship problems, and ADHD, but I don't let these define you as an individual or as a couple. Non-judgment and taking a strengths perspective are fundamental components of my work. There are many skills and tools I can teach you, though perhaps most important of all is looking together at how you think about yourself and your struggle. My goal is to help you understand your difficulties in a new way so you can heal and experience enduring well being.
