At present, I can only provide therapy sessions to people that live in NY and NY state.
Life can be very challenging and at times painful. Whether you are experiencing issues due to relationships, family issues, or identity, My counseling style is warm and is based on trust and acceptance. I challenge my client to grow while exploring and developing healthy coping skills. I will listen carefully to your concerns and goals and together we will develop a treatment plan that best meets your specific goals. The client determines which modality of therapy they are comfortable with, then both counselor and clients will work together to identify challenges and solutions to life's concerns. If Christian Counseling is your preference then therapy sessions will be Christian-based. I was raised Catholic with all of the values and ceremonies, God has been my strength. Although Catholic, I have experienced and have knowledge of many religions and respect all of these beliefs. It would be my privilege to work with both of you.
I am a psychotherapist licensed in New York State with over 10 years of experience. Clients experience a wide range of concerns and at times the specific concerns that one experiences can be lightened with the support of therapy. including gender identity, interaction with self and others, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, physical and emotional abuse including and addictions. Due to attending to other clients, I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times, to respond to you, as I may be tending to other clients or professional/personal responsibilities., but my goal is to get back to you within 24 hours. Sessions are for 30-45
I will need you to please complete the Consent Form and Assessment form I send to you prior to our first session and please return it to me. It is very important that provide me with your legal name, date of birth, address, phone number, and emergency contact information before the first session to satisfy safety and my Social Work Board. Thank You.

I looked forward to my sessions with Margaret. She was a help to me. I guess I just didn't like telephone counseling. If I relapse I will be in touch. Thank you. Kristine
