Margaret Santos, LSW
Maggie is a Licensed Social Worker in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from Rutgers University in 2008. She also earned her undergraduate degree in Social Work from Elizabethtown College in 2005.
Her experience includes working with older adults managing the aging process. This involves helping caregivers manage the stress of caring for a loved one and the grieving process in healing from loss. In addition, she has worked with children and families within the child welfare system. This involves educating about the connection between trauma, the brain and behavior.
Her therapeutic approach is a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness. Maggie approaches each session with kindness, compassion and understanding. This allows for an open and honest conversation about what is needed to reach a healthy and balanced life.
