Maggi Colwell is a Jungian oriented art therapist in private practice. She specializes in working with overachieving women who consider themselves people-pleasers, perfectionists, and caretakers. Maggi takes her clients further in therapy by utilizing a depth therapy approach. Clients resolve regrets, make sense of the past, and get control over how past experiences are affecting current situations. Maggi works with clients to create individualized treatment for each client that goes beyond dry, manualized programs. This approach utilizes theories of Carl Jung in which the images from clients’ artwork and dreams are used to inform the course of therapy as an effective way to treat trauma and express complex emotions.
Depth art psychotherapy treats trauma by engaging with the visual and emotional centers of the brain. Persistent and repetitive nightmares can change with this treatment approach so that clients can metabolize these nightly messages rather than running from these scary symptoms.
In therapy, Maggi helps clients become more comfortable with physical symptoms and sensations to get out of their head and into their bodies. Maggi does this with art therapy, guided meditation, and grounding, focusing exercises. From there, Maggi explores with clients their values, and helps them get their unspoken needs met and gain a sense of guided purpose. These needs may include setting limits, trusting their intuition, life satisfaction, rest, and eliminating burnout.
In addition to art therapy training, Maggi has several years of training in dream work and archetypes. They are continuing this training as a training candidate with the CG Jung Institute Zurich.
