For close to 15 years, Margie has been providing high quality therapy for individuals, couples and families in both rural and urban settings. Raised in East Tennessee in a suburb of the Smoky Mountain National Park, educated in the Northeast and now living 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 during her 6 year marriage, found this experience to be extremely helpful for her relationship, while in her 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 2 step children, ages 9 & 6.
After working for 4 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 a number of personal and professional dreams. One of which involved a journey of her own spiritual self-reflection, 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 is now settled into the benefits of urban life in Denver with continued access to nature. Professionally, over the past 8 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.
An experienced meditator, Margie has taught hundreds of meditation classes over the last many years and is also a Nia dance instructor where she guides her students to engage with 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 in order to move through life challenges.
She 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 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 makes Margie a top-notch clinician.
