Professional statement

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.


Message to clients

Therapy sessions with me are personalized, compassionate, evidenced-based treatment based in the DBT principle of Acceptance versus Change. My goal is always to create a warm, safe, non-judgmental environment so that you can begin to make the REAL change that can transform your life.

My role is to help guide you towards developing healthier patterns towards yourself & in your relationships. Together, we can explore what is getting in the way of achieving growth & healing by empowering you to embrace vulnerability. We will dig deep to learn what you must accept versus what is in your power to change, being mindful that neither your past nor your future control you. By enhancing the relationship with yourself and others, challenging unhealthy thoughts that create unhelpful behaviors, and developing new and effective coping skills, you will begin your journey to wellness and finding inner peace.

The consistent theme I experience as a therapist is my passion for helping clients work towards their goals & achieve their highest potential. I am continuously amazed by the resilience & strength I see from clients who strive to better themselves, do the hard work in and out of therapy, & make the changes they are yearning to see in their lives. Accompanying you on your journey to recovery, peace, & wellness is my greatest privilege as a therapist.
