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 her Master of Education in Counselor Education and Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Augusta University. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Additionally, Maggie earned her Certification in School Counseling in 2018. She has nearly 20 years of experience assisting children and their families. Maggie specializes in helping parents with very young children struggling with behavior problems; children and adolescents affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, divorce-related issues, learning/school problems, and trauma; and adults impacted by anxiety, chronic medical conditions, depression, and trauma.
