Meet Maggie McCarthy, MSW, LCSW

As a clinical therapist, I strive to foster a nurturing environment for connection, exploration and recovery. I integrate DBT, ACT, and CBT in my therapy practice to provide my clients with tools to navigate life's challenges. Due to my background in hospital social work and crisis work, I can offer support to individuals and families navigating severe mental illness and chronic suicidality. I enjoy helping my clients explore their emotions while also providing practical skills for managing day-to-day life. In addition to these specialties, I also work with individuals struggling with disordered eating habits. Drawing from evidence-based approaches and my clinical expertise, I empower clients to develop sustainable strategies for nourishing their bodies. Additionally, I offer support for athletes, addressing the unique challenges they encounter pursuing optimal performance and well-being.
