Maggie’s therapeutic approach is characterized by patience, warmth, and compassionate confrontation. She firmly believes that clients are the experts of their own lives but recognizes that, on occasion, they require the expert guidance of a professional to overcome personal challenges. Maggie provides a structured framework for the therapeutic journey, all the while empowering her clients to embrace their true, authentic selves.
Maggie sees her role as a therapist as that of a beacon in the darkness, guiding individuals and couples towards the light. While she acknowledges that life may present its share of challenges and shadows, she stands alongside her clients, offering support and companionship as they navigate these difficult moments. Maggie’s approach involves providing education, insights, and practical tools to help her clients find their way through the darkness. She helps her clients discover their strength and capacity for growth, even in the face of life’s toughest trials.
She firmly believes that when individuals strike the right balance between confidence and humility, they gain the resilience needed to overcome any of life’s obstacles. Witnessing clients find relief, experience growth, and achieve improvements they once doubted were possible is a truly magical and rewarding aspect of her work.
