During the past 30 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have practiced psychotherapy for more than 20 years and am licensed in both Louisiana and Florida. I have had experience in helping and guiding individuals and couples as they navigate through their relational issues. This has included communication styles, fostering overall better communication, family of origin issues which visit their relationships, addiction and co-dependency issues, self-esteem, anger management and forgiveness issues. All these and more can play havoc on a relationship which is trying to blossom or one which is trying to survive. One's behavior often affects those around us. We all respond to the issues of the people closest to us.
I work from a cognitive behavior model. This means I deal with both thought and behavior as I apply therapeutic services inside the understanding that mindfulness and awareness are especially important. I have utilized other modalities should the client need or prefer them. I am very empathetic towards my clients and work towards instilling a positivity in their lives that may be missing. I get excited has I watch clients begin to meet the goals they have set for themselves. I often give “homework” to clients between sessions. This is helpful in providing insight to both of us. Remember, this is a journey of learning and awareness. Homework allows us to document growth experiences and skills training.
I believe picking a therapist is one of your most important priorities. Your therapy should be driven by you. It should meet your needs. I want you to feel comfortable working with me. I am always open to suggestions for your therapy, as you know what works best for you, and you will work better if you are engaged in the process. As humans, we do not like change, but if you are willing to begin those baby steps, I am willing to travel though the rain and the sunshine.

My fiancé and I have been seeing Marguerite for almost a month now and our experience has been wonderful! She’s great at putting things into perspective and making sure that both parties voices and concerns are heard. 10/10 would recommend this counselor!
2020 left some baggage for sure. for EVERYONE. she's clearly up to the task of getting people (couples) back to homeostasis
I joined Regain with an urgent need to review and/or change my communication patterns and revive my marriage. Marguerite has been easy to talk to... She is experienced in Catholic-faith and has shared meaningful perspective. The resources (exerts from books and workbooks) she sends after each session have been helpful. I appreciate that she has helped me navigate through the rough time and helped me effectively improve communication at home.
Marguerite has been very helpful with couples counseling. She provides great tools and resources to foster a better communication, forgiveness and building trust between partners.
Marguerite has been very helpful in all of our needs and very flexible for our schedule!
She is very responsive and understanding. She has given us information and tools that are helpful. I recommend Marguerite to help anyone on their journey.
