Maggi Masci, LCSW is a licensed clinical social worker in private practice in Honeoye, NY. where, with over 20 years of clinical experience, she provides counseling for individual adults, couples and adolescents. Maggi believes in people and loves working with them. Every young person, individual adult and every couple is unique. Yet, in so many ways, all are connected by common experiences and universal truths. Truths, that once identified and incorporated, can be a source for transformation. For Maggi, trusting that “we already possess within what we need to live the life we desire” offers you a glimpse into the cornerstone of her work. Beginning with understanding your own experiences and concerns, you can then be curious about what serves you best. Mindfulness and calming techniques are incorporated to reduce stress then provide clarification of what you want, what you need and how to get it. Being freed up to find the path that best fits you and leads you where you want to go, is the ultimate, right?
At Wellspring Counseling of the Finger Lakes, the client is viewed holistically. Treatment and support is integrative-enhancing the valuable connections between ones thoughts/feelings/behaviors to physical and mental wellness. Interventions are tailored to the specific needs of each person or each couple. Clients find Maggi to be respectful, insightful and intuitive; blending care and compassion with a straight forward approach to identifying not only what is real, but toward clarifying what is really most important for you, your life and your relationships.
Traditional therapeutic techniques and modalities are used but are deeply informed by the latest in neuroscience and mind/body awareness. All are used in combination with relaxation, mindfulness, clinical hypnosis, neurolinguistic programming and other transformational psychotherapy techniques. Clients often report a significant reduction in stress, anxiety, grief and depression along with alleviation from the reactivity from trauma. Couples learn trust building and communication skills that can lead them to a more open, respectful and intimate relationship.
