Malgorzata “Maggie” Nussbaum, LCMFT (Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist)

 

I work with families, individuals and couples to help facilitate healthy change.  My goal is to help people be more successful in their interpersonal relationships.  I believe that working in collaboration with the family, individual or couple to determine what has been going well for them, then working out a plan to do more of it, leads to open dialogue about what needs to be done differently to be more successful.  By helping people develop more effective strategies to use when relationships get strained, we create space to have safe and healthy communication.  Change is co‐created with clients as we work together.  By helping to create and own their own change, clients can more easily incorporate these changes into their lives.  The clients are the experts on their lives and know best what will be sustainable.  The therapeutic work done in session will allow for all parties to find ways they can work together to get to where they want to be.  

 

I utilize an eclectic approach that includes Solution Focused, Gestalt Therapy, Art Therapy, Narrative Therapy, as well as many other approaches that informs my work with people.  I maintain a baseline philosophy that draws heavily from Family Systems.  I also have extensive experience working with addictions.
