About me

I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in New Jersey with over 10 years of experience working as an individual, family, and marriage counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, and acceptance and commitment counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Margaret is very understanding and she takes the time to get to know you. She asks if a solution would work and tries to learn why something may or may not work for you. Great experience overall.

Margaret has a wonderful, gentle approach to therapy. She will work with her clients to find common roots to help guide them to what techniques might be appropriate and comfortable for them. Margaret is very empathetic and compassionate by nature and always has a welcoming energy whenever I have a session with her.

I have had a very positive experience with Margaret. She not only listens, but she hears you, and understands. She definitely has the ability to genuinely empathize, which is such a wonderful quality! I feel very comfortable sharing what is going on with her, as she comes across as nonjudgmental and genuine. She is great at coming up with suggested strategies for addressing concerns, and has really helped me to see things in a better light. I highly recommend Margaret!
