Hi, I am Maggie Weisenberger.
I graduated from Texas Tech University with my bachelors in Social Work in 2005 and then went on to attend The University of Texas at Austin for my Masters in Social Work. After completing my degree in 2007 I became licensed and worked in various hospital settings.
I have experience in post-acute Rehab, skilled nursing facilities, traumatic brain injury long-term care rehab, transitional care units, and providing mental health services for persons suffering from severe persistent mental illness in their home setting to reduce hospital visits.
I have worked with grief counseling, end of life and palliative care and feel it is an honor assisting clients and families with this stage of life. I have utilized animal assisted therapy and feel passionate about the healing power animals can provide individuals who need comfort. It is an amazing thing to witness.
I have extensive knowledge of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and am currently enrolled in the Beck Institute for ongoing education and mastering that skill. I tend to utilize a solution-focused, client-centered approach to address the root cause of any client issue and collaboratively discover ways to improve the client’s situation.
I recently completed the intro level 200 hour of Yoga Therapy from Yoga Yoga and am on a journey to complete the rigorous 1000-hour certification with the International Alliance for Yoga Therapy under the teaching and guidance of renowned Viniyoga instructor Gary Kraftsow.
I worked with patients in the hospital and it is astounding the healing and holistic power yoga and breathwork bring into a therapeutic setting. Partnered with EFT techniques and CBT it can be very powerful to see the radical changes in a short period of time. I am trained in EMDR and can help unblock any trauma that you are experiencing.
I grew up in El Paso, Texas where as a child I loved the desert thunderstorms, swimming, hiking in the mountains and enjoying the rich culture of being close to the Mexican border. I have worked in child development centers, after-school programs, and facilitated support groups for children who have suffered loss. My husband and I have two small children – Royce and Reed. They are my biggest teachers.
