Maggie Slavich (She/Her)
I believe in the importance of humor and building a strong relationship of trust and collaboration. I enjoy helping individuals identify their own strengths and act as an agent of their own change. I integrate a number of therapeutic interventions with an overall focus on client-centered and child-centered therapy.
All About Me
I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Schaumburg Campus. I completed my doctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship at Connections Academy East, a therapeutic day school. I have provided individual and group therapy for children, adolescents, adults, and older adults with emotional disorders, developmental disorders, memory loss, and chronic mental illness. I have worked in private practice, therapeutic day school, community mental health, a dementia clinic, a pain management clinic, and an intensive outpatient program.
I am passionate about helping individuals of diverse backgrounds and all ages. The majority of my experience has been with children and adolescents with emotional disorders, behavioral disorders, autism, and PANS/ PANDAS. I also have experience working with individuals with traumatic stress. I pride myself on being successful at helping individuals cope with major and minor life stresses. I perform diagnostic evaluations for individuals of all ages. These evaluations include cognitive, emotional, academic, adult autism, and personality assessments that can be used to inform therapeutic intervention and gain resources outside of therapy.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, playing with our dog and two cats, playing guitar, and attending comedy shows and music events.
