About Me

During the past 30 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have practiced psychotherapy for more than 20 years and am licensed in both Louisiana and Florida. I have helped and guided individuals, couples and families as they navigate life and family issues in their communities as well as the hospital setting. One's behavior often affects those around us. We all respond to the issues of the people closest to us. They have experienced depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, addiction, grief and just issues managing what life throws at them!
I work from a cognitive behavior model. This means I deal with both thought and behavior as I apply therapeutic services inside the understanding that mindfulness and awareness are especially important. I have utilized other modalities should the client need or prefer them. I am very empathetic towards my clients and work towards instilling a positivity in their lives that may be missing. I get excited as I watch clients begin to meet the goals, they have set for themselves. I often give “homework” to clients between sessions. This is helpful in providing insight to both of us. Remember, this is a journey of learning and awareness. Homework allows us to document growth experiences and skills training.
I believe picking a therapist is one of your most important priorities. Your therapy should be driven by you. It should meet your needs. I want you to feel comfortable working with me. I am always open to suggestions for your therapy, as you know what works best for you, and you will work better if you are engaged in the process. As humans, we do not like change, but if you are willing to begin those baby steps, I am willing to travel though the rain and the sunshine.

Marguerite has been a great listener. I appreciate her willingness to respond even outside of our sessions. I like that she pulls from other resources.

Marguerite has helped me to consistently grow, to prioritize self-care, and to take back control of my life. I work best with clear tasks or homework, and she always has some clever worksheet or article for me in every situation. They really help to put things in perspective. She is one of those people who just make you feel at ease. I'm so grateful for our conversations!

Marguerite is so wonderful to talk to. I feel like I’ve known her forever. She has insight into so many different kinds of issues, and always helps me to see what I’m not seeing on my own. She is a wonderful person and resource for me. I was skeptical of the app’s matching abilities, but she’s definitely the right counselor for me.

Mrs. Wilcox has been really great. I was coming into this with a lot of trepidation about online experience having had a few not so great ones. It was evident right away that she was very experienced and knowledgeable and exactly what I was hoping for.

Marguerite has been amazing. She’s really opened me up to a light that I was uneducated about and finally helping me see answers. She’s so kind, thoughtful, responsive, and open about her life as well. She truly gives me forward and honest insight on things. I see her not only as my therapist, but as a friend that I can tell everything to and I know I’ll get an honest real answer.

I feel really comfortable with telling her anything and feel that whatever I need even if it were to where she couldn't help that she would find someone that could. She is very good at what she does

Marguerite has been absolutely amazing and is super easy to talk to. You definitely get the feeling that there's no judgement and that she is listening and is actually concerned about what you are saying. I came into this very sceptical and I am now in the process of making a better me! Thank you Marguerite!
