Maggie M Girard
MA, ATR-BC, LMHC
Maggie holds an MA in Art
Therapy from Drexel University in Philadelphia, and
is a licensed
mental health counselor, as well as a registered board-certified art therapist. With more than
a decade of experience working with clients facing life transitions and mental health issues,
Maggie meets clients with a compassionate, supportive, non-judgmental approach. Art therapy
uses art making and the creative process to help clients better name and understand feelings,
decrease and manage symptoms, and improve their sense of wellness -- no need to have art skills.
Maggie has experience working with children and adolescents with ADHD and oppositional
defiant disorder, families and caregivers in cancer treatment, hospice care, as well as
adults in recovery from severe mental illness. Her areas of focus include children and
adolescents, using art therapy to approach grief, trauma work, mood disorders, and anxiety.
Additionally, Maggie works with cancer patients and their families through Cancer Support
Community, patients through IU Neuroscience Center's Art therapy program and has served as
adjunct faculty in IUPUI/Herron's Art Therapy Master's program.
Maggie is an in-network provider with Anthem, BC/BS.
