My Story

Margaret Helen, “Maggie”, was born and raised in Laredo, TX. Her first degree was in Criminal
Justice from Laredo College and went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Texas A&M
International University in 2015. She then moved to the city she loves so much to complete her Master’s
Degree in Psychology focusing on Family, Couples, and Individual Psychotherapy from Our Lady of the
Lake University in San Antonio, TX in 2019.


Border Region Behavioral Health Center was where Margaret began to walk down her career
path as a Qualified Mental Health Professional and crisis worker. Being bilingual Maggie was able to
assist both English and Spanish speaking clients. Her next steps would be to move to San Antonio after
being hired at The Center for Health Care Services as a clinician with the Genesis program working with
federal probation and parole clients.


During this time Maggie enrolled in the graduate program at OLLU and began her journey as a
therapist. It was at OLLU that she was blessed with professors and supervisors who would teach her how
to navigate and conduct therapy utilizing several different modalities. During her time at OLLU she was
privileged to have interned at the Rape Crisis Center until her graduation. After receiving her Master’s
she began working with BCFS – Transitional Foster Care working with unaccompanied minors again
putting her bilingual skills to use. When the opportunity arose, she returned to the Rape Crisis Center
where she continued to help those with a history of trauma. 


Maggie has interned for the STEP Program with Juvenile Probation, The Rape Crisis Center,
Community Counseling Service, and Driggers Elementary Counseling. Her working experiences have
offered her a wide range of opportunities to counsel couples, families, children, adolescents, and adults.
She has knowledge in many areas including trauma, PTSD, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, anxiety,
self-esteem, multigenerational challenges, sexual assault, human trafficking, life transitions, and grief.
Maggie has experience working with members of the queer identity through all stages of their identity
exploration and acceptance. She is also informed in various relationship practices including
monogamous and alternative styles such as polyamory, kink, long-distance, and open relationships.

 

Margaret is an eclectic therapist utilizing techniques from evidence-based theories such as
collaborative therapy, solution focus therapy, narrative therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
She believes in providing a safe and judgement free space for her clients to process and work through
any struggles they may be facing.
