Maggie Wilhelm is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor based in Los Angeles, CA, who works with individuals across the lifespan, with a focus on women. Many of her clients struggle with low self-worth leading to internal turmoil, difficulties in relationships & a longing for peace in their lives.
Maggie is certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), & specializes in combining these two evidenced-based modalities to help clients going through stage of life changes, relationship struggles, grief and loss, & the evolution of one’s identity after a trauma, major loss, or life transition (moving to a new city, job loss, or breakup/divorce). Additionally, Maggie is certified in Seeking Safety & Trauma-Focused CBT.
Maggie’s approach is rooted in CBT, which focuses on helping clients understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings, & behaviors so that they can begin to make sustainable change. She works to help clients build self-worth by challenging & reframing unhelpful thoughts, setting healthy boundaries, practicing assertiveness, problem-solving, validating one’s emotions, & acting within one’s values.
Maggie is focused on ensuring that her clients see real progress: her style is interactive, non-judgmental, compassionate, & goal oriented- helping clients overcome barriers that keep them stuck. She welcomes feedback so that clients get the most out of their experience.
Maggie’s first priority is ensuring that clients feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions.
