I live in Western Mass and I practice across Massachusetts and North Carolina

Hello! I'm Maggie (she/they). I'm a queer relational therapist, and I'm particularly passionate about working with queer and trans folks, women, and all people who have lived experiences of misogyny. I specialize in integrative forms of healing, which means that we'll use a variety of approaches tailored uniquely to you. I love supporting individuals through life transitions, relationship issues, navigating polyamory/ENM, sexual desires, diving deeply into family of origin issues, navigating boundaries, processing family addiction/alcoholism, recovering from purity culture, addressing anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, and more.

I am humbly committed to anti-racism, and I aim to bring an intersectional feminist approach to my clients. I come from a queer, Jewish anti-Zionist, and Health At Every Size perspective. I use trauma-informed modalities, Internal Family Systems ("parts" work), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-based modality, and I emphasize the therapeutic relationship.

I know that finding a therapist who feels like a good fit isn't easy. I love working with clients who are wanting to engage in longer-term, open-ended therapy. I offer free, 20 minute video consultations so you can ask questions about my practice, and I can learn more about you. I'd love to hear from you if my description resonates with you!

*I don't offer couples therapy but my spouse, Sam Silvaine, LMHC, and I run a practice together and they specialize in offering couples and relationship therapy
