Margaret has gotten me to start peeling back the layers and really open up which is very difficult for me. She does not force anything and allows you to progress in your own time. She very easy to talk to and non-judgmental.

Margaret helped me deal with the sudden loss of both my parents in a short amount of time, plus a terrible boyfriend. She is kind, understanding, she has similar situations and concerns, listens with empathy and compassion, and provides worksheets for references and studying. I looked forward to my sessions with Margaret each week and I'm sorry to end. Thank you Margaret, from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for everything that you do, I greatly appreciate and look forward to our weekly conversations you’ve really helped me grow and give me insight on things I would not have been able to figure out without your help. You truly do help me in ways I couldn’t have ever imagined.

My experience with Margret has been very good. I feel heard and challenged in a healthy way. I still have a ways to go but I feel the talks we’ve had have made an impact.
