I'm Wade Maggert, PhD, LCSW-S

A licensed Clinical Social Worker, Depth Psychologist, and a devoted practitioner of Zen Buddhism. Choosing to step away from a cookie cutter professional profile, I prefer to connect with you on a more personal level, emphasizing the transformative power of genuine, therapeutic relationships.

My Therapeutic Approach

In my psychotherapy practice, I navigate the complexities of the human psyche through a lens deeply rooted in psychodynamic and depth psychological principles. This approach allows us to explore unconscious behaviors and patterns that often underlie the emotional distress and challenges you may face. By understanding these hidden influences, we embark on a transformative journey toward self-awareness and healing. My commitment to a humanistic approach ensures that you are seen and valued as a whole person, not just a collection of symptoms. This perspective fosters a therapeutic environment filled with empathy, respect, and unconditional positive regard, empowering you to embrace your authentic self and unlock your potential for growth. Trauma-informed care is central to my practice, acknowledging the profound impact of past traumas on your current well-being. With sensitivity and mindfulness, I create a safe and supportive space where you can explore your experiences without judgment. This approach is complemented by mindfulness techniques that encourage presence and self-compassion, helping you navigate your feelings and thoughts in the here and now. Together, we work towards healing, integrating mindful awareness practices that enhance your resilience and emotional balance. My approach is a holistic blend of examining the depths of unconscious processes, honoring the uniqueness of your human experience, and employing mindful, trauma-informed care. It is designed to support you in your journey toward healing and self-discovery, providing the tools and understanding necessary to move forward with confidence and clarity. If you're seeking a path to deeper self-awareness and emotional well-being, I invite you to reach out. Let's explore how we can work together to illuminate your path to healing.

My Specializations

I specialize in offering comprehensive, evidence-based therapeutic services to adults within the LGBTQ+ community. With a deep foundation in depth psychology and social work, I bring a unique, empathetic approach to tackling complex challenges such as trauma, addiction, shame, and the intricate aspects of gender and sexuality, including non-traditional relationships. Utilizing a blend of therapeutic techniques, including Somatic Experiencing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and EMDR, my practice is committed to promoting healing and empowerment. I strive to help individuals navigate their path towards wellness and authenticity in a safe and supportive environment.
