Margaret V McCall LPC
I specialize in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias and Social Anxiety. I am passionate about my work and stay up to date on the latest research and findings to provide the best treatment possible. Over 80% of my current practice are clients with OCD and related disorders. I offer telehealth services and meet in person when necessary for specific issues you may be working on. I also offer support therapy groups for adults and youth with OCD. My job is complete when I have taught you the skills to be your own therapist!
I graduated from Georgia State University in 1991 with an M.S. in Community Counseling. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 25 years. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through the Beck Institute and have received intensive training in Exposure and Response Prevention for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder at the Center for the Study and Treatment of Anxiety at the University of Pennsylvania. I provide training to local therapist on the assessment of OCD and participate in consultation groups on OCD and related disorders.
I incorporate cultural sensitivity into my work to accommodate and respect diverse differences in opinions, values, and attitudes. I believe individuals must be open-minded and recognize that valuing and respecting cultural differences requires a commitment to life-long learning. I am eager to learn from you and will always be open to your unique identity and experiences.
I have attended college classes on multi-cultural counseling as part of my graduate training and engage in lifelong learning through experience and workshops.
I offer the Goals Support Therapy Group for adults and youth diagnosed with OCD. Members meet online to provide and receive support in their journey to recovery. The group is limited to clients who are currently in treatment or have completed treatment and want ongoing support. It is a lively, interactive way to meet others who are struggling with the same issues. For many it is the first time they have met anyone else with OCD and these connections can make you feel less alone and part of a community of recovery. Some of the group members have chosen to meet in person outside of group and form lasting friendships.
