Dr. Maggie Carraway has worked with teenagers in multiple settings including private practice and college counseling centers. She understands her clients through a developmental lens and implements age-appropriate interventions. Dr. Carrway emphasizes the therapeutic relationship, characterized by safety, support, and trust, which she believes is key to meaningful growth and change. Some of her special interests include helping adolescents develop coping skills to deal with stressors, improve social skills, strategies to establish boundaries, and exploration of their values. She understands her clients using a family systems approach, where families are understood as an interconnected system of interdependent individuals. Using this framework, she recognizes an individual’s functioning cannot be understood in isolation from the system as a whole, which she seeks to understand with compassion and empathy.
