Professional Statement

I believe in encouraging people to create a life for themselves that is rich, full, and meaningful to them. I 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. For those who feel anxious about starting therapy, the fear or ambivalence you are experiencing is a good thing -- it means you are getting closer to opening up and choosing to live in a more vital, meaningful way. Don't allow the fear to keep you from taking the courageous step of entering therapy and daring to believe that your life can be better. Even though it can be difficult work, therapy is a tremendously worthwhile endeavor. As your therapist, I will be taking this journey with you, 100 percent on your side, striving to help you grow while making sure you feel safe and ready for every step along the way.

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 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!

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!

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.

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.

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!! :)

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.

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.

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.

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.
