Maggie Skrypek

she/her/hers

Maggie feels truly honored to be a part of the healing journey of her clients. She offers a warm and comfortable space for clients to process and reflect, and to make connections between their thoughts and feelings, past and present. She uses a relational approach to connect with clients, and supports them in identifying their current challenges and goals for therapy. She believes it is important to honor the life experiences of each of her clients, and recognizes their individual culture, traditions, and values.

Maggie works directly with children over 10, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Although she is a generalist, she has a special interest in supporting parents, caregivers and families though complex family dynamics including challenging child behavior, family trauma, parenting through separation and divorce, blended families and families formed through adoption. She has advanced training working with members of the adoption and foster/kinship care triad (PACC - Permanency and Adoption Competency Certified). She uses an attachment lens to support adults navigating complex family of origin issues and developmental trauma. She is strengths-based and trauma-informed. Maggie uses a psychodynamic approach, and borrows from Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and other modalities. She has completed Level 1 Gottman training for couples. She is a lifelong learner and loves finding new ways to support clients through new research and innovations in the field.

Maggie believes that systemic factors like racism and historical trauma have a significant impact on the health of many in our community, and it is her goal to have an anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice, grounded in a lens of cultural humility. She is LGBTQ+ allied and strives to create an open environment for all clients and communities. Maggie has a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Social Work and Masters in Public Policy. She is a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) and a Certified Parent Coach. She is currently working towards her independent clinical license under the supervision of Elizabeth “Zeb” Henderson Shreve, LICSW.
