My Approach to Helping
Dr. Maxey's practice focuses on youth and women experiencing mood and anxiety disorders and low self-esteem that both stem from and impact issues related to life transitions, social and academic pressures, trauma, bullying and rejection, interpersonal and relational conflicts, grief and loss, disempowerment, codependence, occupational stress, and existential despair. She also provides family therapy and consultation for parents struggling with challenging child and adolescent behaviors. Dr. Maxey will accept youth at all levels of motivation to change, and women ready to take control of their lives and actively engage in treatment.
Dr. Maxey works with clients at her practice as well as at a large hospital and healthcare system. Her approach is evidence-based, and uses interventions from various models based on her clients’ current needs and unique characteristics. Her intention is to empower clients by invoking their own strengths to create change, rather than simply rescuing them.
