Mental Health Therapist

Maggie Elinson is an LPCC candidate and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor who serves children and their families, adolescents, and young adults with a variety of mental health and chemical health diagnoses.

When thinking about the arc of therapy, Maggie wants each person that works with her to feel respected and empowered by the therapeutic process and acknowledged for both their strengths and growing opportunities. Therapy is a collaborative effort in which we grow and change together. Maggie’s approach towards working with clients involves taking a reflective look at the relationship between the individual and their environment, recognizing the numerous ways in which an individual’s surroundings can impact holistic well-being. It is one of Maggie’s goals to always meet her clients where they are at without making assumptions or generalizations; everyone has a unique experience that deserves to be valued and heard. Maggie will welcome you into the counseling space with a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere that encourages open and honest disclosure. Involving creativity and experiential forms of therapy is a passion of Maggie’s; she would love to learn more about what inspires you.
