Margaret Donald, LPCA, Counselor
Margaret (Meg) Donald is a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate with a Masters of Mental Health Counseling degree from Walden University. She is a member of the American Counseling Association. Her passion is empowering individuals to find strength within themselves to make changes in their lives. “I believe you are already in possession of the force you need to break through your situation, I am here to provide you with utensils and support. I use many different tools including humor, homework, and affirmations to assist you in finding your power.” Her straight forward, but compassionate, outlook allows clients to view situations from multiple perspectives. Meg’s theoretical orientation stems primarily from an approach of building on strengths and moving past obstacles although she often uses cognitive behavioral therapy when appropriate. In this approach you work together in identifying your inner strengths to allow you to feel empowered in your life approach. She often uses techniques that allow you to work at home between sessions to continue building on the area of strength in which you are working.
