Margo is a therapist, professor, and animal advocate. She is seasoned in working with diverse individuals, couples, and families. Pet animals are members of family systems, a dynamic she has focused on in her studies and research. Margo is a healer and provides clients clarity and guidance for relief, strength, and increased life satisfaction. She uses an integrative approach to wellness in her work with college students, young adults, couples, individuals, and families. Everyone needs time to be listened to with unconditional support and without interruption. All humans have the due right to talk about stressors and receive guidance from an unbiased expert.
In life, we have many stressors; it is inevitable. Everyone struggles, and everyone needs support; it is human nature. Though all humans and creatures experience stress, many have not cultivated resolution and left stress behind. We have power over our interpretation and response to situations and individuals.
Margo guides clients using a strengths-based, systems perspective. She provides training, education, and supervision for several theoretical orientations and implements many in her clinical work. Common models include CBT, DBT, Structural, PET-C Therapy, Gottman Method, etc. Please contact Margo to discuss your challenges, needs, and requests for therapy
