Maggie Ritnour is an art therapist and Licensed Mental Health Counselor with an office in Brooklyn’s Park Slope. She welcomes a wide range of clients to her practice, many of whom are experiencing anxiety and depression, especially when it’s related to a major life transition or moment of change, such as a new job, move to the city, or end of a relationship. An eating disorder specialist, Maggie also has deep expertise in supporting clients to improve their relationships with food, their body, and inner self.
Maggie utilizes a collaborative and team-oriented approach rooted in Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (RODBT), a skills-based treatment modality that enhances emotional expression and flexibility. She takes a holistic view of wellness, welcoming in both the mind and body, and helps clients to cultivate alternative coping strategies, including meditation and breathing exercises.
As an art therapist, Maggie can also help clients learn to communicate and understand their emotions through expressive means. By looking for patterns in behavior and thoughts, Maggie helps her clients open up the freedom to view themselves differently and make conscious decisions about their relationships and their future.
Maggie welcomes clients from all backgrounds, and is sensitive to the role of race, class, gender, and sexuality on lived experience. She offers a safe, non-judgmental space where individuals feel comfortable discussing their most inner thoughts. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey towards healing.
