Maggie (Margaret) is originally from Atlanta, GA. She earned her Master of Arts in Counseling from Wake Forest University, graduating summa cum laude, and her Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education and English from Clemson University, graduating cum laude. She has a range of professional experience that includes classroom teaching, as well as interning in K-12 school settings and a private counseling practice.

Maggie has always enjoyed working with adolescents. She values assisting young people in feeling empowered to advocate for themselves, manage life stressors and transitions, build positive relationships with others, and make decisions supportive of their well-being.

In her work as a counselor, Maggie tailors her approach to fit the needs of her individual clients, mainly utilizing behavioral theories with solution-focused qualities. Maggie aims to build trusting, genuine, and safe connections so that her clients can explore their feelings, issues, and discomforts, while being able to find the words to understand and express their experience(s) so that healing can happen. Maggie believes a strong therapeutic relationship is the key to motivated change and feeling lighter after leaving each session.

Maggie is currently practicing under the supervision of Rebekah Jones, LPC.
