MARGARET KASSEL, M.A., Therapy Intern
It is my passion to provide an authentic and open space for my clients to flourish. I am devoted to providing insight and reflection to the therapeutic space in order to build a more full and abundant life. I specifically find meaning working with young adults struggling with meaning and purpose, as well as couples and older adults seeking counseling. In addition, I have previous experience providing therapy in a school setting to children, adolescents, and college students on the Autism Spectrum. My current research work focuses on parental support and adolescent hope.
I earned my master’s degree in clinical psychology from Wheaton College, and I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree in clinical psychology. I hope to use my position as a therapist to glorify the Lord and to love others, and I am devoted to providing a space in which individuals with differing beliefs or no religious affiliation are welcome. My preferred treatment approach is integrative, drawing from psycho dynamic, trauma-informed, and systems models. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, nature, running, and watercolor painting.
