Margaret Bossaller, MSW LICSW

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker

 I am a licensed independent clinical social worker at Vallis Mental Health, offering individual counseling. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Southwestern University in 2011. I subsequently completed my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at the University of Missouri – Saint Louis in 2013. Finally, in 2018, I received a Master of Social Work degree from Ohio University. 

With over a decade of practice as a therapist in a variety of settings, I have experience working with a wide range of individuals and issues. My areas of specialization include perinatal mental health, treatment of trauma and stress-related disorders, grief and loss, and providing affirming treatment for LGBTQ+ individuals. I presently hold certifications in perinatal mental health, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, and hospice and palliative care. 

My style as a therapist is defined by my commitment to authenticity and my belief that powerful healing can occur in the context of being seen, valued, cared for, and challenged in a supportive therapeutic relationship. I see myself as a partner in supporting you to find healing and achieve your goals. My goal is to be responsive and attentive to your needs, while also providing new tools, skills, and insights (including candid feedback) that will help you to make the changes you want for yourself. As a therapist, I practice from the perspective that “under the right circumstances, the brain heals itself.” I aim to help you find and create the circumstances and tools that will best allow you to heal and live a life of authenticity and fulfillment – whatever that looks like for you.
