Margaret Perry is very kind, caring, supportive, compassionate and has a lot of wisdom on the tools and strategies of working through challenges. I feel understood by her and that she truly wants the best for me. She responds back to my messages when I have a question with wonderful questions and insights. She is helping me become a better partner in my relationship and towards myself by giving me topcis to self reflect about. Her gentle warm approach combined with her logical way of seeing situations based on her vast knowledge/education on mental health/trauma healing is a great balance. She really helps me dig deeper into the layers of my emotions and learned patterns. And we only had a few sessions so far. I look forward to more! Thank you Margaret! I would recommend Margaret Perry to others!
