About Me

My name is Peggy Wilson, I have a Masters degree in Human Science with an emphasis on workplace behavior. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 15 years experience. My background in the business world in leadership positions in the profit and non profit setting, along with my mental health training and experience,
equips me to make a valuable contribution to clients dealing with anxiety, depression, lack of coping skills, feelings of uncertainty, emptiness, lack, difficulty adjusting to life changes and transitions. Much of our lives are centered around our work or lack of work across our lifespan; it is important to become enlightened to the drivers of our own behavior and how it impacts business and personal relationships. Very often clients discover barriers, childhood traumas, self-sabotaging and self-esteem roadblocks that impact every area of their life and create needless struggle and pain.

My approach to helping my clients is to act as a guide and raise their level of awareness to resolve or dissolve problems that could otherwise create a lifetime of suffering.
I am living, breathing proof that good counseling has the potential to bring peace of mind and feelings of well-being. I work with my clients to set goals and landmarks and encourage them to keep going. Counseling is a process, it can make the biggest difference in your life.

A wonderful therapist. Peggy always listens to my concerns and issues. Her voice and advice are always so uplifting and helpful. I always feel like I can see things in a completely new light, after each session with Peggy.

Peggy has changed my life for the better in many ways. I have grown so much thanks to her, and I’ve made better choices to prioritize my happiness and wellbeing. Everyone in my life has heard about the incredible Peggy!!! Best advice I can give to others is “get you a Peggy”! ❤️

She listens really well and I've never felt bad for trauma dumping on her (which I know should be the norm as this is her job, but like past experiences and whatnot) and she helps me sort out my head too

Peggy navigates the conversation more efficiently than I could ever imagine and has given tools to implement and very helpful insight from an unbiased third party.
She’s supportive, and gives great supplemental worksheets to provoke deeper thoughts and understanding.

I would and have referred two friends to her specifically.

Peggy is such a good listener and gives me practical tools for coping with my anxiety and depression, and working through some of my issues. She relates well with me and appropriately uses her skills and experience to help me think through things. I highly recommend Peggy!

Peggy is absolutely amazing. She’s been so helpful and understanding I’m every way. I’ve never felt comfortable talking to counselors in person so having these options for chat is even better. I’ve felt better ever since I’ve spoken to her. Thank you Peggy.

Peggy has been an exceptionally kind, understanding and incredible pillar of support for me with my PTSD, depression and anxiety. She has taught me many tools to overcome the issues I have faced my entire life. The quality of my life has improved drastically since my sessions began with Peggy. I cannot recommend her enough!

Peggy Wilson is a great coach. She’s always looking for strategies to help me cope within a difficult situation that does not involve leaving every situation that causes my discomfort. I feel that that aspect is extremely important. We can’t all just run away from things that cause our discomfort situation will always present themselves and without abilities to thrive in spite of those circumstances we will not be able to exist in a world full of those circumstances. It has taken a long time to find a counselor who is willing to meet me where I’m at and help me work through the dynamics of my own circumstances rather than simply leaving over and over again and never learning how to change myself to become someone better able to handle those dynamics! This has been a game changer for me!

Peggy is amazing. She listens patiently as I talk through issues. All of her advice / suggestions / feedback have been really great and applicable. She is extremely empathetic. When she has not heard from me in a while, she always messages me to make sure I am ok.

Peggy is extremely good at what she does. I always feel like I have a fresh start on my week with a clear and level head after she gets through sorting out all the junk! Her experience is evident by seeing that she is able to break down mental barriers and instills the assurance needed to understand that we can live whole and happy lives despite our heavy burdens life has brought us. Thank you Peggy!

I started therapy after my mothers death in may of this year. I was anxious about therapy but I knew it was what I needed.
I’m so thankful I got matched with Peggy! She has been so supportive, kind, and gives wonderful advice and tricks for staying present and mindful in the moment. She really has helped me through a lot of my fear and anxiety about my career, relationships and life in general. , she has encouraged me to start loving myself, which has been incredibly difficult for me. But everyday is a little easier, a little brighter, and I’m enjoying my life a little more each day.
Of course the struggles of daily life are still here, but that’s just life, I’m learning to focus on the good, accept the bad, ignore the ugly, and bask in the beauty and glory of this crazy life. Miss Peggy has been incredibly instrumental throughout my healing process!
I look forward to our conversations as often as I can schedule them.
Much love and peace! ✌

Peggy is a great counselor. She helps me think rationally and offers perspective I wouldn’t have otherwise. She is quick to respond and I leave our conversations feeling hopeful and more at peace than before.

Having a childhood trauma of rape and a few bad experiences with therapy before I was hesitant to do this. After the very first video meeting with Peggy Wilson (MA, LPC) I felt an overwhelming relief of comfort and trust in her as well as growth in my journey to a healthy mind. Thank you so much Peggy you really are a life saver!

Peggy is the Best! She listens, helps you understand what your feeling, her wisdom is spot on, she speaks truth in love, gives me things to work on and helps me work through them. She has made a big impact in my life! So thankful for Peggy!

Written by K.A. on May 10, 2021 after therapy with Peggy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, and coping with life changes

Peggy Wilson is amazing at what she does. She understanding and supportive and helps me to look at things from a different perspective. She helps me by not telling me what to do but by suggestions she makes. That is the best part. Most therapist I have had tell me what to do instead of give me suggestions of things I can try to help the situation. She is all around an amazing person and counselor.

Peggy has been a great help in my self development journey and I am loving speaking with her every week. She is very wise and offers a unique perspective that I need!
