Hello! I am happy that you are here. Counseling is a great first step to help making life changes. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State. I have over 10 years of experience working with individuals of all ages. I have provided therapy for a wide range of issues including treating Depression, Anxiety, family and parenting difficulties, stress management and addressing life changes. I have extensive experience in the treatment of trauma including all forms of abuse.
Sometimes people come to therapy and aren't quite sure what steps they would like to take to make changes. That's ok! My goal is to help you identify the changes that need to be made and how to implement strategies to achieve those necessary changes. This can include a variety of different methods and I use a trauma-informed eclectic approach in my therapy practice. These approaches can include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and include Mindfulness Practices. Our treatment direction will focus on your needs and goals and we will create a plan to best accomplish this.
You can contact me anytime through Better Help. I check messages 2-3 times per day, every day of the week. I offer messaging, phone and video sessions as well as live chat. These can be scheduled to fit your needs. I may have availability outside of my current calendar so please contact me to discuss. I look forward to our work together!

Since I had past experience with counseling Margaret was very concerned about what had worked well or not well in the past. She has focused on exactly what I wanted to and I really appreciate her approach.
My experience with Margaret has been very good. The most important thing to me is that I feel comfortable with my therapist and that I can open up and share my feelings with her without worrying about being judged. Margaret is kind and approachable, she listens and offers helpful advice, and I trust her in guiding me through working out my issues. Thank you so much for this experience.
She knows when I’m struggling and tries her best to help in every way possible. Would recommend her to anyone.
She’s really great. I feel like she truly listens and the worksheets she’s has given me really help.
She is calming and always there for me.
Margaret is a compassionate and caring counselor. She offers a lot of experience and techniques for dealing with grief, loss, and trauma. I would highly recommend Margaret as a counselor.
