Therapy can be a powerful, life-changing experience for those who want to heal the wounds of the past and move forward stronger, more confident, and with a greater understanding of themselves.
Many people avoid couple therapy, concerned that they'll end up spending large amounts of time and money rehashing old arguments and trotting out their dirty laundry in front of a stranger...
Hello, I'm Margaret
My psychotherapy practice focuses on individuals in transition who seek balance, wholeness and healing. I provide therapy to individual adults and couples in any place on their journey towards hope and healing, whether just beginning the healing process or further on their path. My areas of specialty include divorce recovery and managing other life transitions, healing from trauma, and the depression or anxiety that often accompanies each of these life challenges. I have experience with a variety of therapeutic techniques designed to help clients achieve their individual goals. These include traditional talk therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), radical acceptance, and mindfulness practice. This year I began a three-year training program in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), a well-researched approach based on psychoanalytic theory. For my work with couples I use Stan Tatkin's model, Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT). I enjoy working with both straight and gay clients, as well as trans and gender-nonconforming folks.
I feel deeply honored to participate in this process with my clients, and I am here to help you find the path that brings you balance and healing.
