I believe that counseling is so much more than talking about your problems. It is truly a collaboration between the counselor and client. Together we create goals. Together we identify potential solutions. My personal mission is to build a safe, trusting and non-judgmental environment in which you are confident that the focus is you. When you enter into my space, be prepared to enter into an inviting educational environment where you can learn new skills to help you reach your fullest potential. I will not take for granted the power of listening. You deserve to share your story and to be heard.
I believe everyone can benefit from therapeutic intervention, learning new coping skills, and changing unhealthy thought patterns. As a Licenced Professional Counselor I'm here to help you set goals and work to achieve them in a no-pressure, non-judgmental, safe environment. I have a calm, intuitive, and honest approach that allows you to work toward becoming the best version of yourself.
I am here to hold space and walk along side those that are ready to step out on or continue their journey. Life transitions of all kinds can bring contrast and I am able to facilitate space for you to work through. I am here to let yo know that you are not alone and that there are so many beautiful ways to create your new life. It is an honor to be of service to others and provide a safe space to grow. Let's connect! I would love to see the caterpillar become a butterfly.
Amidst a time of fear and uncertainty, I applaud you for considering an opportunity that will lead to healing. Though this process may be new for you and out of your comfort-zone, I assure you it will be worth it. I'm a compassionate and dedicated therapist who is committed to providing you with the highest quality of care. I offer a warm, non-judgmental environment that will allow you to feel safe enough to begin making life-long changes.
You have found your way here, whether it’s your first time or you’re returning. I acknowledge that and I’m here to help. My name is Margaret, and I’d love to hear more about you. I believe everyone has unique experiences that have led them to this moment in their lives and their feelings and thoughts about it are valid. No matter where you are at today, I will help guide and encourage you with acceptance, humor, kindness, and compassion. I welcome individuals, couples, and families looking for help with boundaries, cohesion, and communication through working on problems stemming from trauma, identity, and relationships.
Clients who seek competencies in life-space crisis intervention, adversity, and trauma, either with youth and/or families are welcome. I create healing spaces where listening and compassionate witnessing allow a client the ability to be vulnerable and grow.
You are the expert in your journey of exploration through healing and wellness, where your story and voice are a priority. While honoring this approach, I believe that therapy is a collaboration of curiosity and mindfulness, working towards authentic solutions that support you in the infinite nature of growth. Our collaboration ultimately encourages you to experience the power of connection in a larger collective community that supports your ongoing journey.
I feel that the bravest thing anyone can do is begin to understand their own story and as your therapist, I’m here to help. Let’s celebrate taking that first step in sorting out and making sense of your thoughts and feelings together. Sometimes our perception of therapy is stuffy, one-sided or that we cannot be our true selves during a session. I can assure you that’s not how our time together will be spent. You have my promise to feel heard, able to engage freely, be genuine, and feel relaxed in a nonjudgmental safe space to help you feel empowered enough to cope with whatever life throws you.

Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, LCADC, DBTC, CAADC, ACS
Are you seeking treatment, but finding it very difficult? The decision to seek treatment is often very difficult, yet a necessary choice. For the last 28 years I have been providing a non-judgmental arena to work on a variety of issues to include but not limited to addiction, anger, gambling, co-occurring disorders, behavioral concerns, depression and anxiety.
*CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* What has drawn me into this line of work is the awareness that we are much more than our thoughts, feelings and reactions. When we tap into this deeper, authentic part of ourselves, we tap into a wisdom that is both universal and unique to each of us. I have a special interest in--and work from--a holistic & multifaceted approach to therapy and implement spiritual & somatic modalities, as needed, to create greater capacity for growth.
Each person has a unique story to share. But too often, we burry our feelings and thoughts--our true stories--in order to survive in the world. We may feel anxious, depressed, confused, or angry about what is happening in our lives. Maybe that's where you are right now: feeling like what you are doing is just not working and desperate to gain some understanding and sense of control.
We all experience struggles and challenges as we move through life. I honor the incredible courage it takes to seek help and take this step towards improving your life. Are you experiencing difficulty in your relationships, feeling stuck, struggling to cope with loss or feeling alone? You can create change. You don't have to remain anxious, depressed, confused or paralyzed in relationships or life. I believe deeply in the profoundly transformative and enduring nature of psychotherapy. When we're feeling stagnant, overwhelmed or alone in our suffering, therapy can help us to untangle our emotions, clarify our struggles, and better understand ourselves and others.
Have you been struggling with addiction, codependency, trauma, anxiety or anger problems? Are you looking for effective strategies to help you overcome these problems and get your life back on track? Using evidence-based techniques can help you identify the barriers to living the life you want and learn the skills to achieve the goals that are important to you. I am passionate about empowering clients to make useful changes in their lives. I provide a path to those changes through various therapeutic techniques, such as DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy).
I feel that all clients have a choice in their treatment and should have access to an array of techniques to address their needs. I also think is is important that clients find a therapist that is a good "fit" for them. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused, and Strength-Based techniques in my work. I also believe in the importance of taking care of your physical health in conjunction with mental health. I help to identify triggers to symptoms as well as creating healthier coping strategies and boundaries.
Do you find yourself going around in circles with life issues or as if you're bouncing on an octagon just to come back to the same place with no solution? At times this can happen to the best of us. We see this take place in our professional, personal, marital, relational and spiritual lives. At one point of my life I grew tired of seeing myself living this way and begin studying human behavior, why people do why they do and decided to make of Life Coaching my Career I am here to Help Individuals Live to Their Full God Given Potential.
You want to feel better. You want someone you can trust, who is experienced and well-qualified, to help you. Don't let your anxiety, depression or past experiences have control of your life. We can work together to change that. Unsure of your life path or in a transition, we can find the direction that fits you best. Our supportive relationship, new treatment approaches and brain-based therapies can help you feel better.
