About Margaret

I was a pastor for fifteen years, and I know what you’re going through. I know what it’s like to work hard and feel like you’re not getting anywhere, or to lie awake worrying about the budget meeting. I’ve also worked with hundreds of pastors of churches from small to large from over a dozen denominations over the past fifteen years.

What others say:

“The work you have done in clarifying and strengthening my leadership has been invaluable.” Jennifer Brownell, Pastor, Hillsdale Community Church UCC , Portland, OR
“Most of us who lead fly at 35,000 feet.  We see the big picture and we often see a never ending number of issues that demand attention and problems that require solutions.  Sometimes all these challenges can overwhelm us and so we resist and find ourselves stuck.  One important response for such times that Margaret has taught me is to ask myself this question, “What is the one thing I can do to move forward?” Often, this is just what I need to break the emotional logjam.  Thanks, Margaret.” Rev. Dwight Robarts, Executive Director, Christ’s Haven for Children, Keller, TX
“Margaret has been very helpful to me as a resource, sounding board and experienced guide as I navigated a job change.  Being able to talk about what I was struggling with and experiencing with an expert in congregational systems and family systems theory helped me to gain a clearer perspective on my role and how I related to others.  I came to think of our time together as “strategy sessions,” and always left feeling excited about fresh possibilities.  Her gentleness and deep listening helped me hear myself more clearly.  I value her highly as a facilitator, listener, co-strategist, and friend.” The Rev. Canon Nathan LeRud, dean, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral
