About Margaret

After spending years in the mental health field I started to notice how clinical and sterile some counselors approached the healing process. I strive to make sessions relaxed and calming while still achieving your desired goal.  I want those I work with to feel valued and respected.

Education and Experience

I have a Bachelors of Social Work and a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. I am licenced by the NCBLCMHC. I have been in the mental health field since 2001. I opened my private practice in 2014 because I wanted to give people an opportunity to try a different approach to counseling.  

Free Initial Consultation

Because I firmly believe that the key to your success in counseling is the therapeutic relationship, I make the first consultation free.  By doing this you are able to meet me, ask me questions, and determine if I am a good fit for your needs. Contact me today to schedule your free initial consultation. 

About Autumn

Meet Autumn Green

Hello everyone!! My name is Autumn Green and  I am a Masters-level counselor-in-training through Northwestern University, working toward a Master of Arts in Counseling. I have been working in the helping profession for over 10 years mainly in child care and mentorship programs. I am so excited to begin my work as a counselor! My goal is to make all people feel comfortable and free in all sessions. I believe that we all should be heard and share our stories without the fear of judgement. I have always been drawn to the mental health field and have finally found my niche in counseling! I am here to help others who are in need of a judgement free zone to be truly heard and feel cared for. I will be working under the supervision of Margaret Donald M.S., LCMHC and learning the best techniques of counseling.
