About Me

About Me

Margaret Brnich-Ryan

You are unique! As such, the story you tell me about your life, the way YOU see it, is where we will begin. Using both traditional and mindfulness-based approaches, I as your mirror will help you decide what it is you want to explore about your life... about yourself. From there I'll guide you in the process of gently and compassionately finding ways to effect the changes that help you meet your goals and find the joy, peace, and happiness you deserve.

I really like working with people who feel they have lost their POWER. Difficult life events can keep you from believing YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR LIFE, your relationships, your family. Just make an appointment and together we'll WAKE UP YOUR TRUE SELF, to help get you back on track.

My Fort Washington office is welcoming, quiet and conveniently located on Pennsylvania Avenue (next to the Hilton Garden Inn), just off the Fort Washington exits of Route 309 and the PA Turnpike.   It is accessible by train if you don't mind a 5-10 minute walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.  

With over 25 years experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor, and as a graduate of Arcadia University, specializing in mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy, I currently serve as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are anxiety, depression, codependency, and traumatic life changes.

I am an interactive, mindfulness-based therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
