A Different Attitude Counseling is here to work with you on improving your life. Whether that means working through issues of depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues or just adjusting your energy to empower a more positive thought process to enrich your life we are here to help. We use a holistic approach to mental health counseling and wellness.
We set out to make something unique with A Different Attitude Counseling. We keep our caseloads small so that you are able to have the individual attention you want and need. You are welcome to reach out to us for counseling through phone, email, or text. It is our belief that you are not just a warm body in the chair but you are a resilient person with many strengths. We want to use those strengths to promote the happiest healthiest life possible.
If you are looking for a non-clinical holistic approach to your mental health and wellness A Different Attitude Counseling is just what you need. In a session you will feel empowered but also challenged to make the changes you want to see in your life. You will experience what it means to be valued exactly as you are right now without judgment.
*Not currently accpting new clients*
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.
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.
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 or to ask me any questions @ Margaret.Donald@adifferentattitude.com

This quote is something that I love to share with my clients but is something I live by every day. Mental health is not just about addressing the current struggles that someone may be going through, but also to build a person up to see their greatest potential and go for whatever they want in life! I enjoy seeing this change and working through the hard times through using humor and promotion of being one’s true self. I always believe in creating a warm and open environment for all people to be able to work through their anxiety, depression, trauma, couples struggles, women’s struggles, and many others. I am a masters-level counselor-in-training through Northwestern University, working toward a Master of Arts in Counseling and graduating in December 2020! I am under the supervision of Margaret Donald and learning the best techniques of counseling.
