What Others Have to Say

  • Love the approach

    Love this podcast. Every episode is like a mini-session and the information and counsel is amazing. Dr. Margaret has a warm, calming voice and makes it easy to listen to what she has to say and honestly assess what you’re dealing with. I’ve tried listening to a couple other counseling podcasts, and was immediately turned off at the abrasive and matter of fact approach to dealing with problems. Some folks may need that, and that’s great. But I certainly prefer Dr. Margaret’s approach, counsel and straightforward but kind way of helping you understand, face and deal with your problems. So, so, so thankful for this podcast. ~ Jenn
