Hi. I'm Maggie. For the last 20+ years I've immersed myself in the world of trauma recovery, learning all I can about how the body and brain store, process, and release trauma. I've studied and certified in a number of methods and modalities, eventually integrating all that I've learned into my own unique system of trauma recovery.
Neuro-Integrative Trauma Recovery* can help you transform from a trauma-sensitive to a trauma-resilient person. You can't erase trauma from your past, but you will learn to become less sensitive to triggers, and when you do get triggered, to quickly soothe and care for yourself through a variety of in-the-moment management tools and daily self-care practices.
You don't have to be held hostage by your trauma history any longer. Be empowered, resilient, open-hearted. The real you.
"I rarely say that something is 'life changing' but there are a few exceptions. Brainspotting and the work I did, guided by Maggie Hollinbeck absolutely changed the course of my life and helped me to lead a life that feels like my own. For many years, I spent the majority of my day living in my anxiety-driven mind, feeling trapped inside. My anxiety ruled over me and I grew accustomed to identifying with it, labeling myself as someone 'with' anxiety, as if it were an unchangeable part of who I am. I am writing this now, after having worked with Maggie for six months and I can truly say that through Brainspotting, I fully separated myself from those feelings of anxiety and started to explore so much more of what makes me an actual person instead of focusing on what I deemed as permanent. Maggie helped give me my life back after so many years of feeling lost. From navigating through insecurities, uncertainty, self confidence, crippling anxiety and even chronic body pain, she can help you through anything and she always does it with compassion and kindness." ~ K.C.
"Working with Maggie has been one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. I've never really found someone I've felt so comfortable being this vulnerable with so that just speaks volumes to Maggie's compassion, non-judgment, and space she holds for her clients. I've had so many breakthroughs in our sessions and have really grown so much in my own self-awareness. Maggie has helped me through some really dark times and has also helped me stay grounded enough to continue growing my business even through those dark times, including dealing with a terrible illness. It's been such a gift to have found Maggie - I never want to let her go!" ~ A.D.
"When I began working with Maggie I had a couple issues I wanted to address and I was able to make more progress in a few months working with Maggie than I ever could have imagined possible based on my prior experience with more traditional ‘talk’ therapies. I felt completely at ease working with Maggie right from day one and she did a great job of teaching me, guiding me and helping me develop a deeper understanding of who I am and internalize approaches to self-care and healing." - A.

"I was so fortunate to find Maggie Hollinbeck when I was looking specifically for someone who works with the Brainspotting technique. A therapist friend of mine had suggested I try Brainspotting to work through some childhood trauma. I had been in traditional therapy before but had never even heard of Brainspotting, but was eager to give it a try. I don’t have a lot of memories from childhood so I was especially interested in trying a technique that works with information that may be outside the conscious mind. I am so impressed with this technique and especially with working with Maggie as a facilitator. Each therapy session brought new discoveries and understandings of how my current behaviors, beliefs and attitudes were connect to events from the past.

"Maggie has been an unbelievable, unwavering support system throughout my journey this last year. Before I started working with Maggie, I defined self-care as rest, reading, massages and the occasional bubble bath; Maggie has not only helped me reframe the meaning of self-care, but has helped me put it into practice. We have worked through meditation techniques, journaling prompts, ways I can parent myself, ways I can show myself compassion and love — and when I fall off the bandwagon, Maggie has been there to help me understand why, to dig deeper, to welcome the thoughts and the emotions, and to restart. She does this with unparalleled compassion, without judgement, and always - with patience. She listens intently, she engages in meaningful discussion and always keeps me in the driver’s seat. Her guided brainspotting has been a gift I didn’t know I needed. It has been one of the most valuable self-care tools I have been exposed to to date. Most importantly, Maggie has created a safe space for me to be unapologetically me. I have immense respect and gratitude for Maggie’s professionalism, her skill set, her compassion, and her persistent efforts in supporting me to be curious, rather than judgmental, of my mental state and well being. I could not recommend Maggie highly enough. She has truly been a gift." ~ A.R.
