Margie Provenzano, PsyD

Psychologist

Professional statement

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.

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.

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 shecares 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 andis 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 foranyone 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 inyour 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 Igot 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 allowsher 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 laugheda 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 whileI 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.
