Provider type: Therapist
Serving: Adolescent, Adult, Child
Maggie considers herself as a person-centered cognitive therapist. Through training and experience, she has adopted the belief that the brain, which believed is the seat of mental illness, is an experience-dependent organ. What she means by experience-dependent is that how the brain develops and changes over a person’s lifespan is dependent on that person’s internal and external experiences. Some experiences promote healthy brain development, while other experiences lead to a disruption in one’s mental and emotional health.
Maggie graduated in 2013 with my Master of Education in Counselor Education from Augusta University. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor with nearly 15 years of experience assisting children and their families. She is also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Maggie specializes in working with children and adolescents affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), learning difficulties, divorce, and trauma. Additionally, she has experience working with adults living with serious mental illness, chronic medical conditions, and trauma.
