About Maggie Dickens
HI! I’M MAGGIE DICKENS (SHE/HER/HERS).I’M INTERESTED IN PUSHING THROUGH WHAT WE’VE ALL BEEN TOLD ABOUT PAIN.THE PHYSICAL. THE EMOTIONAL.
As a Texas based licensed professional counselor, I know there is more life for you to live.
Now, I am sure you’ve thought this too..but that was before. Before the hurting seemed to take over. Before your life began to revolve around fears of planning ahead and letting yourself and others down because you’re having, yet another, “bad day.”
I am here to tell you that all those thoughts swirling around your mind, keeping you up at night, saying you “can’t”, or are focused on “what was” … are, well, simply-- they’re outdated. Perhaps at one time or another there may have been some truth in there, somewhere.
But today, by reading this, seeking out counseling, you’re already telling those pesky, annoying, overwhelming, thoughts-- that you recognize there is more to life.
This is where I come in. My role is one of “guard rails.” You know the life you’re ready to live. I am here to help you pave the road for your success. Counseling with me is one that is collaborative and is built on mutual understanding, respect, and commitment to show up and do what needs to be done.
Some of that work includes purposeful discussions to change those beliefs that keep you overwhelmed and education for you to learn how to maximize your life AND thoughts, feelings, actions! My favorite tool to use in counseling is clinical hypnosis. Basically, because it’s proven to enhance client outcomes, reduce length of treatment, and is a tool you will be able to use throughout the rest of your life.
When you’re ready to push through the stuckness of the current status quo -- I’m here to support you in finding the life you know is out there for you!
