I specialize in anxiety and substance use issues.
Therapy is not one-size-fits-all. I provide personalized support and the help you need to overcome your current emotional or situational challenges. I work with you so you can overcome your problems and develop healthy, effective coping strategies that you can use throughout your life. We will get to the source of your problems and help you develop the skills and strategies you need to handle your life’s challenges. I believe that the adversities we experience in life can be great opportunities for personal growth and transformation.

I have experience providing individual, couples and family therapy to youth and adults with a range of challenges including trauma, exposure to violence, substance use and addiction, mental health crises and physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
Hello! My name is Maggie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker focusing on the intersections of trauma and the justice system. I believe every human being deserves healing and space to process their past experiences and current challenges. We live in a society that often defaults to moving quickly and pushing past traumatic experiences, rather than intentionally taking the time to acknowledge that adversity can impact the way we trust in those around us, communicate through hard times and find hope.

I work with motivated people who have perhaps come to realize that they are stuck in fight or flight, always feel “on”, stressed, or frozen in their lives. People seek me out to work on anxiety, depression, and complex traumatic issues like abuse, neglect, and suicidality. Many clients simply seek balance in their lives and to feel connected to themselves and others again. I also work with those in/or seeking recovery or harm reduction from substance use and/or behavioral addictions. While I am not a substance use counselor, I can work as a part of your recovery team to help strengthen your recovery and reduce relapses.

Sometimes life brings challenges that are not meant to be borne alone. You may find yourself stuck in difficult thoughts, and emotions, or cycling through chaotic states of mind and feeling uncertain about how to proceed. Yet, symptoms can also be an invitation to know one’s self more fully. It can be helpful to have a supportive, collaborative partner along your healing journey. Our work together can support you in connecting with yourself and your body wisdom on a deeper level as an invitation to self-knowledge, authenticity, and transformation.

Finding a therapist is hard! It doesn't help that there are so many to choose from. I think the most important part is actually liking the person you are talking to. Take a look at my page (and website), and if you think we may be a good fit, I encourage you to call me for a free 15 minute consultation. If we end up working together, I will do my best to find which methods align with you so that I can help you get to the place you want to be.

Therapy is an amazing placebo. You do not NEED a therapist to learn, transform, and grow your awareness of yourself. I firmly believe whatever it is you are seeking to learn, change, or make peace with, you can do it. The benefit of working with a trained therapist who sees you, gives your sense of agency and innate wisdom the respect it deserves, and offers an outside perspective on your experience informed by evidenced-based theory and practice, is that the pace of growth is greatly accelerated.

I am a psychotherapist providing individual therapy services to adults. Many of clients who come to me are experiencing feelings of grief, sadness, anxiety, confusion about an area of their life, or difficulty in intimate or familial relationships. I also specialize in working with adults who are impacted by trauma. In my work I understand trauma as how we are impacted by the painful experiences in our lives and the ways in which those experiences shape the way we form relationships with others, with ourselves, and the degree to which we are able to find joy.

I am a First Generation Vietnamese-American. I grew up in a household with traditional Vietnamese parents who taught me the importance of rituals, family, & strong values. I struggled with cultural & generational differences and I learned ways to embrace my two worlds & improve on my relationship with my family members, while still staying true to myself. I encourage you to utilize the meditation corner before/after our sessions. The relationship between your mind, body & soul is key to your healing and is crucial to gain freedom form suffering (whatever that may be)
