Margie Kaems, MSW, LCSW
Individual & Couples Therapist | Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Margie currently sees clients Monday through Friday (including evenings)
For over 15 years, Margie has provided high-quality therapy for individuals, couples, and families in both rural and urban settings. Margie was raised in East Tennessee in a suburb of the Smoky Mountain National Park, educated in the Northeast, and now lives out West. Margie brings perspective from these cultural corners of the country. Having grown up in a Catholic household with a younger sister by both parents (one of German descent and one of Irish who have been married for 40 years), she brings an experience of witnessing her parents work through challenges of marriage while ultimately maintaining a healthy relationship.
Margie has also participated in couples counseling herself. Margie and her partner attended counseling during their six-year marriage and found this experience to be beneficial for their relationship. In their particular situation, she and her husband eventually decided to amicably divorce and separate on good terms. She is now part of a blended family with her partner and two stepchildren, ages 9 & 6.
After working for four years in a psychiatric hospital for children in the Boston area, Margie decided followed her love of adventure and moved out West in 2009 to pursue several personal and professional dreams. One of these dreams involved a journey of her spiritual self-reflection and exploring eastern traditions after abandoning Catholicism in her later teenage years. During her time in the West, she has lived on a farm, explored a variety of summer and winter outdoor activities, and now enjoys the benefits of urban life in Denver with continued access to nature. Professionally, over the past eight years, she has worked in the innovative field of integrated mental health in Cortez, CO, Dove Creek, CO, Santa Fe, NM, and here in Denver, CO.
As an experienced meditator, Margie has taught hundreds of meditation classes over the last many years. Margie is also a Nia dance instructor, where she guides her students to engage with the mind, body, and spirit on the dance floor. Margie is quite skilled at helping her clients to find clarity and new insights as well as to learn practical tools to move through life challenges.
Margie brings this same attention and awareness to her work with couples—helping her clients gain new direction and understanding, which helps to propel them forward in their relationships. Margie’s clients enjoy her contagious laughter, gentle directness, and willingness to be frank and accessible in the therapy room.
Margie’s focus is always on overall wellness integrating, which means not just emotional health but being aware of physical vitality and spiritual wellness as well. Her years of academic education, direct care with clients as well as her extensive experience supervising therapists make Margie a top-notch clinician.
