MAGGIE PETERSON, BA

Counseling Intern

Words can be hard! Finding the "right" ones or knowing where to start can be a struggle and many experience barriers to spoken communication. My goal is to provide a therapeutic experience that goes beyond words.


My approach to therapy is grounded in meeting people where they are, without judgment or preconceptions. I understand that every client is unique, with their own set of experiences, challenges, and strengths. I prioritize tailoring counseling sessions to meet my clients' developmental, sensory, emotional, and communication needs. Incorporating playful and creative activities into therapy can enhance the therapeutic experience and offer new avenues for self-expression and growth. Principles of Child-Centered Play Therapy, Person-Centered Expressive Arts Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy inform my work.

I hold my clients in high regard, recognizing their innate capacity for joy, hope, and healing. The therapeutic relationship is built on mutual trust, respect, and acceptance, and I work to create a safe and supportive environment where clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors without fear of judgment or shame.

Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling is where people come to solve problems, grow, and change their lives in the direction that they think is best for them and their families. When people are stuck and they don't know how to stop certain behaviors, counseling can provide the skills they need to get them where they want to go in life.
