I am a client-centered licensed clinical therapist with over 25 years of experience working as a cognitive-behavioral therapist, hospice social worker, and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, transitions to college, transitions into retirement, caregiving, OCD, autism, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced a sudden change or crisis.
My therapy 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 cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I enjoy meeting with Marguerite. She understands what's going on in my life and helps me take control and move forward. I always feel better after our sessions. What else could you ask for in a therapist?

I have written a couple reviews of Marguerite before. However, because of my hectic life I've not been able to meet with her for quite some time. This is how I know the HUGE impact she has made towards helping me work through my issues, I will say to myself "write it down so that Margie can help" . This happens many times during the day!! Also, she is just SO thoughtful and will check-up on me, she makes me feel so heard and my feelings validated!!!!

This is my first time ever working with better help and a therapist. Marguerite is very responsive, and kind and understanding. My first session I didn't know what to expect, but immediately as we started to talk my walls came down and we just talked and for the first time I started to feel so of the weight I carry on my heart start to ease away. I'm so glad that we matched.
