Psychotherapy With Adults
Therapy With Margaret:
Margaret’s focus as a therapist is helping adults and teens unravel the tangled knots of their lives that keep them feeling lost, stuck, anxious, and inadequate. Her aim is always to create a safe space, meeting every part of you with an open heart so that you can start to feel connected to a sense of peace, spaciousness and belonging that will see you through any obstacle.
Her approach is integrative, with a deep respect for the innate wisdom of the body-mind and for the interconnectedness of all of life. She incorporates a variety of interventions depending on the interests and needs of the client, with a particular interest and expertise in mindfulness, self-compassion and body-based therapies.
People come to her for different reasons. Maybe traditional talk therapy hasn’t been what you hoped for or doesn’t appeal to you, or you may be looking for help to:
Heal from trauma or old wounds
Integrate a major life change
Become more present and intentional in your life
Adjust to parenthood
Identify and let go of limiting beliefs
Figure out what you want
Befriend and feel more at home in your body
Learn to trust yourself
Connect with your creativity
Access the wisdom you already have
Love and be loved more fully
Accept and love yourself
She particularly loves working with people who need help integrating major life changes or traumas–including, but not limited to, new parenthood, divorce, infertility, death of a loved one, a new diagnosis or a loved one’s diagnosis.
