Margie Segress, MA, LMHC
In a world preoccupied with external measures of happiness and success, we all too often heap judgment, shame, and guilt on our symptoms of distress. I work with and regard young adults, adults, and partnerships of all backgrounds and areas of life-struggle through a lens of compassionate curiosity about their unique stories and ways of being in the world.
As an attachment-informed counselor, I believe our approaches to life develop out of our earliest relationships. Because those connections were oftentimes ill-equipped to facilitate our optimal growth, my aim is to create a transformative counseling relationship wherein we, together, re-narrate your unique story to include—and, thereby make more manifest—your (or your partnership’s) own resourcefulness and inner wisdom. Drawing from existential, narrative, Jungian, and attachment theories among others, I work from the assumption that with greater awareness and acceptance of the strategies we have developed in the face of life’s inherent difficulties, we are able to consciously release unhelpful thoughts, reactions, and patterns in order to embrace the creative responses that reflect the fullness of our authentically evolving selves.
