My Approach to Helping
Maggie is a psychotherapist who takes a holistic approach and truly sees each client as an individual, tailoring each treatment plan to incorporate clients\' unique strengths and weaknesses.
Maggie loves to mix cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques with psychodynamic and person-centered methods. She believes that CBT provides effective, proven strategies that can quickly reduce depression, anxiety, stress, and more. However, she believes that in order to make lasting change, clients must also increase insight and address underlying issues that are the source of their distress.
Maggie is adept at identifying clients\' internal obstacles that prevent them from achieving their best, whether in relationships, work, or personal growth. She provides a non-judgmental, supportive environment in which clients feel safe to express their innermost thoughts and feelings.
Maggie has experience with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, life transitions, grief, trauma, and substance abuse. She has worked for a suicide prevention/crisis hotline, counseled individuals who are homeless, volunteered with hospice patients, and worked with individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Maggie spent over 15 years as a writer, editor, and digital producer for large media corporations before returning to graduate school to become a therapist. She received her B.A. from Princeton University and her M.A. in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from NYU.
