Get to Know Margaret
Introducing Margaret MacLeod, a skilled and empathetic Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. With a keen focus on couples experiencing disconnection, parent-child sexuality education, and handling grief and loss, Margaret brings her expertise to clients of diverse backgrounds and life experiences. She’s an active member of esteemed professional communities like the WAMFT, AAMFT, IFTA, and AASECT, reflecting her commitment to the highest standards of therapeutic practice.
Margaret’s therapeutic approach combines elements of Bowen's Natural Family Systems, Satir's Human Validation Process Model, and White's and Epston's Narrative Family Therapy. This eclectic mix allows her to tailor her methods to the individual, always recognizing the interplay between the individual's internal processes, social and family systems, culture, and environmental context.
A cornerstone of her work is the belief in the interconnectedness of human relationships and the inherent ability of her clients to change their stories. Her role as a therapist is to work collaboratively with her clients, identifying functional elements in relationships and applying them to areas of challenge or discord.
Margaret's practice is enriched by her personal life experiences. As a white, millennial woman, a mother, and a queer and polyamory affirming individual, she brings her own lived experiences into her therapeutic work, allowing her to form genuine connections with her clients.
Her ideal client is someone who is ready for change, ready to critically examine their life from multiple perspectives and engage in therapy sessions aimed at fostering a greater sense of adaptability, distress tolerance, and self-improvement.
Beyond her professional role, Margaret enjoys various hobbies such as gardening, traveling, cooking, horse riding, and tap dancing. She also carries a multicultural fluency, being conversational in both Dutch and French.
Margaret is recognized in the professional community for her insightful contributions, notably presenting on the Person of the Therapist as a Training Model at the IFTA Congress in Spain, 2023. Moreover, her advice has appeared in various media outlets, such as an article in the Dallas/Fort Worth parenting magazine, Thrive.
Margaret's blend of professional expertise, personal authenticity, and compassionate approach make her a sought-after therapist, ready to facilitate positive change and growth in her clients' lives.
