Senior Counselor
Sorry! Maggie is not accepting new clients at this time.

Sometimes the best way to get our bearings is to describe our situation to someone who can help us see from a new perspective. I often think of this work as the two of us looking at a map, seeing where you are, where you have been and then working together to figure out the best way to get you where you want to be. Participating in therapy is an admirable and transformative experience. The rewards of therapy can be a deep understanding of ourselves and loved ones that can lead to compassion and empathy, empowerment and life satisfaction.

Life is challenging. Therapy is a place where you can explore those challenges and grow from them. Inspired by narrative therapy, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology and parts work, I like to explore with clients, seeking out areas for growth and comfort. I am dedicated to building a trusting and caring relationship that is free of judgement so that therapy can be healing, expansive, and even fun.

Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a magazine editor, a teacher of English and writing and as an assistant adjunct professor of American literature. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies from Mills College, a Master of Arts in English from Portland State University and a Master of Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. I have worked extensively with LGBTQIA individuals and families, people coping with grief and loss and individuals in life transitions. I believe in anti-racism work and try to implement it as an individual and community member. Outside of the office, I am an animal lover and have three rescue dogs that I love to take hiking around Austin. I am a fan of the arts and music and love working with local artists. The joy I experience in this work is getting to spend time with people who are truly invested in living the lives they want and being the individuals, friends, workers, partners or parents they long to be.

If you are interested in working together please give me a call at 512/201-4501, ext. 189.
