Maggie (she/her) is a strengths-based, trauma-informed Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist. Maggie’s passion is working with children, teen girls, and adults who have experienced trauma, suffer from anxiety, or who feel overall emotionally disconnected from themselves and others. She is particularly passionate about working with children ages ten and under in the therapy space.

Maggie also specializes in working with adoptees and their families to create secure connections. She has a background in children’s yoga and mindfulness work. She taught children’s yoga in Ireland to children with sensory processing issues and children on the autism spectrum, and currently leads children’s yoga classes at a local yoga studio. Clinical theories and modalities that inform her work include Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), Polyvagal Theory and attachment theory, and somatic-based approaches. She has training in Theraplay and is working towards certification.

Cultural Resume

• I grew up in a middle class white family who often had struggles with money and who also had access to many privileged resources (e.g. high levels of education, wealthy extended family, owned our own home, etc.).

• Growing up in a southern state, I was steeped in a very racist culture from a young age. Some members of my family held racist beliefs and most struggled with anti-fat bias.

•  My father’s family had strong ties to their Irish-Catholic heritage, while my mother’s family identified with being pioneers.

• Mental illness, including substance abuse, and trauma run in my family.

• My privilege includes being white, cis-hetero, educated, a citizen, English-speaking, with strong connection to family (parents still together), and I have access to mental and physical health care.

• I have lived experience of gender based violence.

• I am actively unlearning many things, but focusing particularly right now on racial bias and internalized anti-fat bias.
