Hi! I'm Maggie
Welcome to my practice!
“Vulnerability is the source of hope, empathy, accountability and authenticity.”
-Brené Brown, Daring Greatly
Clients describe me as warm, authentic, non-judgmental and down to earth!
Let me start by saying that I believe humans are powerful beings. And part of being human is to experience pain, suffering, and hardship. My goal is to help you navigate through the inevitable difficulties life has brought you. To help you reach your goals, I will incorporate several treatment modalities into our work together, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and a psychodynamic approach. Beyond theory, I feel strongly that there is healing power in being present with you, listening to you, and truly hearing what you have to say.
While I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, I also work with clients to address issues related to body-image, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, relationships, and life transitions. We all experience unique challenges in life and I will work with you to address any problems getting in the way of your happiness. I will approach our sessions with compassionate curiosity, non-judgment, and perhaps a touch of humor. I will listen to your life experiences and help you to see how truly amazing, unique, and special you are.
I look forward to working with you!
I have learned from my experience that with the right support everyone has the power to change
New York City was the playground for my graduate education and clinical development; it’s where I spent three years studying the art of clinical social work at Fordham University in Manhattan to obtain my master’s degree. My passion for treating eating disorders led me to work in outpatient, intensive-outpatient, and residential treatment settings where I have experience treating individuals with eating disorders, substance use disorders, and other co-occurring illnesses. I have worked with family members and significant others of those struggling with eating disorders and addiction issues to provide education, understanding, and support. Most recently I worked as a primary therapist at one of the top residential treatment centers for eating disorders providing individual, group, family, and couples therapy.
What am I up to now?
I own a private practice in Brooklyn, NY where I offer therapy services for individuals, groups, families, and couples all over New York State. I also run therapy groups and offer meal support at ED 180 Eating Disorder Treatment Programs on Long Island, NY. I provide lectures at St. Joseph’s College in New York on the importance of using a multi-disciplinary approach when treating eating disorders and addiction. I am passionate about my private practice work with clients and am accepting new clients in the State of New York!
