Professional statement

Maggie Liu is a licensed therapist based in Southern California, who works with clients online throughout California. Many of her clients are looking to manage anxiety and worry, explore changes and transitions in their lives, improve and strengthen the relationships most important to them, and explore issues around identity.

Maggie’s approach is rooted in psychodynamic theory, or understanding the influence of early relationships and experiences on present behavior. Maggie also works to help clients notice their emotions and what is happening in their bodies, and learn to soothe parts of themselves that may need attention.

Maggie’s client’s have described her as supportive and non-judgmental, and have appreciated her thought-provoking questions and attentiveness.

Maggie’s priority in her relationships with clients is to create a safe and respectful environment for clients to come forward with whatever they are experiencing. She brings a deep care and respect to her work, and appreciates getting to know clients in all of their uniqueness and complexity.

Message to clients

As a therapist my priority will be to form a strong, trusting relationship with you and create a space for you to reflect and explore that is safe and free of judgement. I invite you to come to therapy just as you are, and know that you are accepted that way. I use a strength-based and client centered approach to support clients in noticing their triggers, understanding their experience, and shifting things they would like to change in order to experience more fulfilling relationships with themselves and with others. I focus both on helping clients tend to their emotions in the moment, and helping them to explore earlier relationships that have impacted their present functioning.

I believe in honoring my clients' wisdom, and self-determination. I do not believe that I know better than my client what is best for them, but I strive to be more of a guide or facilitator in helping them get more clear about that for themselves. I value integrity, connection, slowing down, and acknowledging cultural and systemic issues that impact our mental health, and these values have informed my work in therapy both as a client, and as a therapist. I believe when we grant ourselves the time and space to get to know ourselves, nourish ourselves, and accept support from others, we are much better equipped to support and be present for others.
