Margaret Hindman

Professional Background

Dr. Margaret Hindman began teaching as an Assistant Professor in Counselor Education at St. Bonaventure University in 2020. Since 2017, she has been a licensed associate counselor in Arkansas and is on the last level of clinical work to become a licensed professional counselor and a registered play therapist. With over 25 refereed state, national, and international convention presentations, Dr. Hindman is extremely qualified in counselor education.

Her passions in clinical work led her to be a school-based counselor serving high poverty, title 1 elementary schools with mostly Hispanic and Marshallese children and families. Through play, I support children in finding fulfillment in their school, home, and play environments and making healthy life transitions. Dr. Hindman also counseled college students, especially first-generation and commuter students. I have specialized training and experience in using sandtray, expressive arts, and play therapy.

Although Dr. Hindman teaches remotely, she strives to create a relationship and environment in which students feel supported, free to ask questions, make mistakes, and critically analyze content in asynchronous or synchronous settings.

Her goal is to bring her training and clinical experience and enhance counseling graduate students in their education.
