About Me


Hi. I’m Margaret Doman. I am a licensed clinical social worker.

My professional training was with an emphasis in clinical social work with individuals and families, with the utilization of psychodynamic processing and therapeutic counseling models including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotional Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy among others.
From my professional experience, I bring over 34 years of experience working with people in the helping professions, including over 17 years as a clinical social worker. I have worked directly with clients of all ages, children through adolescents and adults, in a variety of settings. I have worked with clients with a variety of presenting issues and dilemmas, including depression, anxiety and stress, anger management, grief and loss, marital and relationship discord, family and parenting difficulties, trauma and emotional abuse, and mental health disorders.

I have worked indirectly as a Clinical Supervisor over children's mental health programs which provided therapeutic and case management services to children who suffered displacement, separation, trauma neglect and abuse and accompanying behavioral and mental health issues. I have worked as a Program Director of an outpatient substance abuse treatment program. I have worked as a program supervisor over an adolescent respite and treatment program providing shelter, behavior modification, and individual and family counseling for troubled teens. From my personal experience I bring decades of experience, including living and working within a variety of cultures, and religious and ethnic communities, making me aware and sensitive to the nuances of individuals’ diversity and challenges.

As a social worker I recognize that life, with all its possible joys and wonderment, presents us with many varied challenges and barriers to being and feeling fulfilled, happy, content, satisfied, or good and at peace with our lives and the relationships that we desire, seek, and pursue. For the most part we cope and manage to come out on top; however, life can also overwhelm us and we might find ourselves in an ever-increasing downward spiral of unhappiness, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, problems with life and relationships, and maybe a general sense of futility and hopelessness.

I believe in a holistic approach to mental health therapy, taking into consideration all aspects of being a person in their particular unique environment and circumstance.
My therapeutic approach is strength-based, using eclectic therapeutic techniques, providing a supportive counseling relationship, whereby you can explore and gain understanding and insights to drive your resolve, action plan, change, and growth towards that stronger, happier, functional, fulfilled you!

Margaret makes me feel recognised, she is understanding and helps me sift through my anxious thoughts, she makes me feel heard and less stressed knowing there's someone i can talk about things with and not feel judged

Margaret is the best. She listens and asks the right questions to help see things in a new and different way. She also helps to come up with an action plan. I’m grateful and thankful for the assistance to help me through my grieving and providing me with tools to move forward.

Margaret helped me through some of my lowest points and I couldn't thank her enough. She pushed me, questioned my poor choices and inner thoughts, really listened and took good notes on the things I'd say, and I could tell she genuinely cares about seeing her patients smile and seeing them happy. I feel like I'm in a completely different headspace from the time I started with Margaret to the time I finished. I'd recommend her to anyone who simply needs someone to talk to

Margaret is a wonderful listener and loves to ask me all the question I've ever wanted to been asked. She really explores who I am and meets me where I'm at. I've never felt so heard and understood. Her methods are not confined to any one way of therapy and for that, I am making endless strides towards my best self.

I am so happy to have been matched with Margaret Doman. She is understanding, caring, and supportive. She has given me great, straightforward insight into how past emotional trauma has impacted me.

I already feel that she's a MUCH better match for me than the previous therapist (from whom I switched). Margaret is professional, and friendly while also respecting the boundaries of a therapist-client relationship. She also seems very smart, and I respect that. I'm excited to be working with her; it makes me hopeful that I can make progress.

Work with me!
