My name is Margaret Burton, as a therapist, my passion is making a difference in the lives of others. I utilize a collaborative approach to therapy as I provide care to individuals, couples, families and groups.  I am experienced in treating individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, self-esteem, autism, substance abuse, adjustment disorders, to name a few.  I am also experienced in working with individuals and families that are currently living in or escaping domestic violence, refugees, human trafficking or otherwise displaced.  My goal is to help individuals you learn how to appreciate the uniqueness of their personalities and discover new ways to develop their potential, build progressive connections, foster positive and healthy relationships, conflict resolution and problem solving strategies to promote individual and interpersonal health.

 

By applying evidenced based techniques, such as cognitive behavior therapy, (CBT), trauma focused CBT, Client Centered therapy, Solution Focused therapy, Motivational Interviewing modalities and Rational Emotive Behavior therapy, and by providing a safe nonjudgmental environment, my clients are able to process their concerns in an open and supportive setting.  Together, we will explore and identify negative thought patterns, recurring negative behaviors, personalized triggers, and learn how to replace them with positive uplifting thoughts, appropriate behaviors, and self- control.  The focus is to help individuals develop the tools necessary to resolve emotional, behavioral problems and disturbances, regardless of the source, thus enabling them to lead a happier and a more productive life.

 

I am a multi-lingual, Pre-licensed Professional Therapist with a Master’s of Science Degree in Clinical Mental Health and Counseling from University of Bridgeport.  I am fluent in English, Swahili and Kikuyu languages.  As a therapist, I enjoy serving as a positive force in the lives of people who are in need and are having a difficult time finding an alternative to their current situation.  I am driven to help individuals gain insight, clarity, thereby, developing the ability to change recurring self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors. As a therapist I will listen to you, teach you about the problem, recovery and assist you to learn how to utilize coping strategies that will result in significant reduction of symptoms of your presenting problem, to improve level of your daily functioning.

 

When almost all seemed lost, instillation of hope will offer a path back to a sense of possibility in individual’s lives. I am confident that if you are ready to change, I can be the partner you need as I act as a guide on your journey.  As we collaborate positive things can happen. You may be able to regain your sense of self and positive outlook on life and the future.

I look forward to serving you.
