Margaret M. Clausen

Psy.D. Clinical Psychologist PSY 24493

Welcome to my private practice website.

Together with clients I work to ease distress, build on strengths already present, gain insights, and cultivate relating to yourself and other people in life-enhancing ways. Meaning-making, self-compassion, and relational skill-building are frequently a part of the process too. 

I focus on working with men and women experiencing traumatic stress, addiction, depression, chronic or terminal illness, and relationship problems.

I'm a seasoned psychologist with over 15 years of experience providing psychotherapy to adults. I offer a secure therapeutic relationship where you can be yourself and grow. Explore my website, and get in touch to see if we may be a good fit.

Psychotherapy with individual adults is my primary practice, though I also work with couples who fall within my areas of focus. Outside of psychotherapy, I also provide consultation to other mental health professionals and conduct didactic trainings for clinicians seeking greater knowledge in my areas of expertise.

Sessions are usually 50-55 minutes in length for individuals, and minimally 75 minutes for couples. Longer sessions or meeting more than once per week are also possibilities if clinically useful, something we discuss.

I provide statements to you for insurance reimbursement.
