Qualifications and Experience
At Proven Behavioral Health, we believe in encouraging people to create a life for themselves that is rich, full, and meaningful to them. We work with patients to identify areas for change, and then set about creating that change while helping the patient to navigate the myriad thoughts, feelings and emotions that arise in the process. Our practice has two therapists -- Dr. Provenzano, and Dr. Nina Yamini, a postdoctoral fellow working under Dr. Provenzano's supervision. Dr. Provenzano sees patients at the top of the hour (10 am, 11 am, etc.), while Dr. Yamini's appointments begin at the bottom of the hour (10:30 am, 11:30 am, etc.). Please keep this in mind when choosing an appointment time. Dr. Yamini has treated people of diverse backgrounds in a varied socio-economic and cultural context, and her areas of expertise include trauma, grief/bereavement, depression, anxiety, existential/religious/spiritual concerns, identity development, stress management, mindfulness, self-compassion, first generation college students, veterans, LGBTQ, multicultural/diversity issues, refugee/immigration, adjustment and life transitions.

Great listener. Comfortable environment. Promotes open, honest, empathetic environment.
Dr Provenzano is easy to talk to and offered helpful solutions to help me deal with my anxiety and depression
It was my first appointment with Dr. P. She is so friendly and made it seem as if I’ve known her for years! Very easy to talk to. I’ll definitely want to see her again.
Dr. Provenzano is kind, patient and a great listener! She has a calm demeanor and is easy to talk to. I have greatly enjoyed my sessions with her and plan to continue on with weekly appointments.
Dr Margie is very patient, with a highly pleasant and calming personality. You feel you can trust her and talk about freely your problems. And she does listen to every word you say, and then thinks before giving suggestions and advice. A definite sign of a true professional who's been doing this for a while. One thing to note is that you should go very close to your appointment time, as there is no wait staff to greet you. First time visitors can get confused about what to do when you get there, it feels like the office is closed!
Good listening skills, helps to provide balance and insight on the broader situation. Would recommend and will continue to see.
Margie is very thoughtful. She has a knack for seeing a composite picture of challenges and using that information to talk about meaningful, realistic treatment.
Her compassion, versatility and all-around bedside manners are superb. She will make you feel comfortable within the first 15 minutes of your initial appointment.
Margie is terrific. I've had trouble finding therapists I can connect with that also give advice in a constructive and manageable way. She's authentic and brings a degree of hope.
Simply the best, better than all the rest!
Margie has done so much for me. She helps me make connections in my thoughts that I never would have realized. She has challenged me to grow and helped me along the way. I've referred multiple friends to her and they all rave about her too.
She is simply the best.
I've been seeing Dr. P for about a year now and I cannot say how much progress I've made.
Dr Provenzano is nothing but a gem. She's an excellent listener, gives great feedback and action items to help you improve, and is inherently on your side. She genuinely wants the best for you and is doing the work because she cares and you can very much feel that in her sessions. I had to switch insurances or I would be going back forever!
Very attentive, sincere and insightful.
She gave me homework, which is something I really appreciate!
I have been seeing Dr. Margie for almost a year now, and I was so happy at how comfortable she made me feel right away. I had never seen anyone prior to her, but she definitely puts one at ease and is very thoughtful and patient. She has helped me immensely, providing new perspectives and things to focus on in my day to day. One session and it felt like a weight was lifted- have been going back ever since.
I cannot recommend Margie enough. She's the best therapist I've ever had.
Dr. Provenzano is a highly skilled professional who is wonderful at her job. I have been seeing her for over 6 months and she has helped me to change my life (and myself) in tremendous ways. She is a blessing for anyone who may be going through a tough time or for people like myself who started seeing her because I needed more clarity in my life. She has allowed me to speak openly and honestly while providing a supportive and none judgmental environment every visit. I highly reccommend Dr. Provenzano.
Wonderfully calm and grounded bedside manner. Her ability to guide in a very subtle yet strong way is why I will keep returning to her!
Always feel very comfortable, understood and receive great perspective from Dr. Provanzo. She is great!!
Dr. P is really awesome. She is easy to talk to and gives you a toolkit of easy techniques to turn to when your mind starts to race. She's also not afraid to call you out if you're not acting in your own best interest, which I really value. I don't want to go to anyone else!! :)
I have been seeing Margie for over a year now, and she continues to be professional and excellent at her job. I could not recommend highly enough!
Felt instantly at ease. Have already scheduled another appointment.
She was very helpful and easy to talk to even for my first time sitting down with her and never having been exposed to this. I was very nervous and intimidated leading up to the appointment, but as soon as I got in there and began talking that all started to fade away, and it truly had to do with her bed side manner. She was very calm and understanding and really helped me to develop some understanding just with in the first session.
Thoughtful. Kind. Patient. Helped me get through some serious personal-struggles, enabling me to get my life back on track. I have recommended her to friends, and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a very calm, kind approach to whatever you are going through.
Fantastic in every way, highly recommend!
She's clearly a master of her craft and it seems to be a product of really listening to people and then being able to identify their motivations with a high degree of accuracy. This translates to an insight that then allows her to make poignant & practical suggestions that produce results.
She was calm, easy to talk to and made my first time using therapy very easy.
This was my first time in therapy. I was extremely nervous and wasn't really sure how comfortable I'd be talking to a complete stranger but Margie made the experience very seamless and she was really nice. Knowledgeable and we even laughed a few times together. All in all, I'd highly recommend her to any new comers to therapy. And I can't wait for our next session. She sets goals for you that are easily attainable and I left my first appointment feeling great.
Very professional, was really great to talk to.
Just didn't seem to click with Margaret. Consultation felt somewhat awkward.
It had been a long time since I've been in therapy and being a grad student in the psych field, it was hard to admit that I really needed some help. Dr. Provenzano was really great and listened very attentively while I gave my background and even though mindfulness is something I don't use a lot in my own work I found it useful with her. I'm glad my first trip back into therapy was with her.
She gave her full attention, seemed genuine and knowledgeable, and helped me establish goals for future sessions.
Very kind, accepting and nonjudgmental. Mindfulness is her tool. It is very helpful.
My visit with Dr. Provenzano was my first experience with a Psychologist. I was a tad nervous but she made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely go back and recommend her to anyone that's having issues!
Really enjoy her demeanor and approach. She gave me advice I felt like I could actually apply to my day to day life–no hokey overly-sentimental stuff. Just real life methods that really help.
Really easy to talk to. Felt very comfortable even though it was my first visit. Gave me some good suggestions of little things to work on before next visit.l
Comforting, Warm, Professional. Also loved that she set some personal goals for me rather than just the standard listen and dismiss - which I've received in the past from previous therapists.
Dr. Provenzano was really professional. Me and my husband are really pleased with the way things have gone so far.
