Hello! Welcome to my profile! I love reading, cooking and music and I have three grown children and three grandchildren. Over the years, I have worked with adults of all ages, families and couples. I'm an LPC with twenty-six years of experience in the field. I feel it is my role to help clients find their own answers to problems and to assist them and support them in this process. My masters in counseling was completed in South Carolina but I am also an LPCC in Ohio. Both in my private practice, agency work and through EAP programs, I have seen I wide array of clients over the years. I have an eclectic approach to counseling and I have chosen to use many techniques over the years that I find effective in helping individuals, families and couples to move beyond conflicts and find healthy ways of coping and interacting. CBT, DBT, Mindfulness and motivational interviewing are some of my interventions used with clients but by no means the only ones. Let's begin together to explore a way to make a happier tomorrow for you. Kindest regards, Margaret
