Maggie Weisenberger, LCSW-S, RYT

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Board-approved Supervisor, Registered Yoga Teacher, EMDR Trained


Maggie Weisenberger graduated from Texas Tech University with her bachelors in Social Work in 2005 and then went on to attend The University of Texas at Austin for my Masters in Social work. After completing her degree in 2007 she became licensed and worked in various hospital settings.

Maggie has experience in post-acute Rehab, skilled nursing facilities, traumatic brain injury long-term care rehab, transitional care units, and providing mental health services for persons suffering from severe persistent mental illness in their home setting to reduce hospital visits. Maggie has worked with grief counseling, end of life and palliative care and feel it is an honor assisting clients and families with this stage of life. I have utilized animal assisted therapy and feel passionate about the healing power animals can provide individuals who need comfort. It is an amazing thing to witness.

Maggie has extensive knowledge of CBT and is currently enrolled in the Beck Institute for ongoing education and mastering that skill.   Maggie utilizes a solution-focused, client-centered approach to address the root cause of any client issue and collaboratively discover ways to improve the client’s situation.

In December of this year Maggie is expected to complete the intro level 200 hour of Yoga Therapy from Yoga Yoga and will pursue a 1000-hour certification. Maggie already works with patients in the hospital and it is astounding the healing and holistic power yoga and breath work bring into a therapeutic setting. Partnered with EFT techniques and CBT it can be very powerful to see the radical changes in a short period of time. Also, in December Maggie will complete training to provide clinical supervision to LMSW’s wishing to advance in their profession.

Maggie grew up in El Paso, Texas where as a child she loved the desert thunderstorms, swimming, hiking in the mountains and enjoying the rich culture of being close to the Mexican border.  Maggie has worked in child development centers, after-school programs, and facilitated support groups for children who have suffered loss.  Maggie and her husband have two small children and a “retired” therapy dog, Stella.
