“You will never know how much you helped me during my first month in the program with you. My life was falling apart at the same time I decided to go alcohol-free. You helped me uncover past traumas, deal with the stress of my life, and direct me so I could move forward in healing. I will forever be grateful to you. Your gift is a blessing”. – Jan G.

“I can’t say enough great things about you and how much you have helped me on my journey. For the first time in many, many years, I feel I have a grip on my drinking. It is a huge relief that I never thought possible—your kindness, empathy, and guidance – unmatched!” – Karen S.

“Working with Margie to determine my core values was an AMAZING start to my year. With Margie’s guidance, compassion, and support I was able to explore and discover what is truly important to me, ultimately identifying a core set of values. A direct consequence of this work is the empowering ability to set boundaries. Thanks to Margie, I now have a language around values; my values have a voice. Having the language has allowed me to thoughtfully share my position or at least set a boundary to share. It has taken the emotion out of it for me, making it easier to say (even just internally)- nope, that’s a hard pass for me because it goes against my value of [fill in the blank].

Her well-researched and structured exercises helped me move through the process and feel truly excited with the results! I tell anyone who’ll listen about my list of values now, and I couldn’t have done that without her.” – Jackie A.

“In 2013 Margie helped me prepare for some big changes ahead of me. The belief that Margie poured into me and the time she gave helped me. I was successful in those adventures and just a few months ago took another step. Each time I go back to the notes that we discussed and remember to focus on the way forward.” – Glen B.

“After my divorce and deciding to change my relationship with alcohol, Margie was masterful in helping me navigate the ‘what now’ in my life. She was compassionate in her process of guiding me on my journey to realize my full power and potential. She skillfully helped me create boundaries for the first time in my life. I can hardly believe the shifts she has helped me establish in my thinking. Margie now comes highly recommended from me, as well!” – Danielle H.
