Maggie Milligan, LCSW (she/her)
Therapist & Training Director
Maggie (she/her/hers) is a licensed clinical social worker and a lifelong traveler. She was born in Georgia, grew up in New Mexico, and grew up a little more in Washington state, where she attended the University of Puget Sound for her undergraduate studies (majoring in theatre arts), and then the University of Washington School of Social Work, where she received her MSW. She also studied at the Gaeity School of Acting in Dublin, Ireland. She has lived in Utah since 2018 (and plans to stay put for now!).
She has extensive experience working with children, teens, and parents—though she enjoys working with clients of all ages and stages—and she is particularly passionate about supporting folks through all types of life transitions. She has worked in schools, community health organizations, substance use disorder treatment, and integrated behavioral health settings with pediatric medical providers. She also has experience doing applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy with kids and teens with autism spectrum disorders.
Maggie’s main goal in her therapeutic approach is to support her clients in their efforts to stand in their own power and to cultivate a strong sense of self-worth. She uses an eclectic approach—pulling from several modalities and strategies to create a therapeutic experience that is individualized to the specific needs and preferences of each client. She is particularly effective at working with teens, young adults, the LGBTQ+ population, mothers and daughters (of any age), and those navigating attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or anxiety disorders.
Outside of work, she loves to travel, of course! She also enjoys gardening, hiking, listening to live music, writing poetry, acrylic paint pouring, and learning Spanish.
