Maggie Perry, PsyD, is a Psychologist who specializes in helping patients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mood disorders through the Huddle Care Psychotherapy program. She has expertise in acceptance-based cognitive-behavioral treatment for mood and anxiety disorders and related conditions.
She became interested in psychology, sociology, anthropology, and theology at a young age. The more she studied, the more interested she was in the nature of suffering and how people and cultures dealt with suffering throughout history. She also had strong interpersonal skills and an interest in listening to and understanding individual people, so becoming a psychologist was an excellent fit for her.
Maggie is a very active and direct psychotherapist. She uses the evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) model Unified Protocol (UP) to treat individuals diagnosed with anxiety disorders, depression, and related disorders. The UP can be applied to a range of different disorders and problems (e.g., panic attacks, social anxiety, obsessive thought/compulsions, depressed mood, impulsive behaviors). The overarching goal of the UP is to help patients learn new ways of responding to uncomfortable emotions that reduce symptoms across a patient’s range of problems. The UP combines elements such as mindfulness, cognitive therapy, and behavioral therapy.
The Huddle Care Psychotherapy program provides evidence-based therapy in online group settings and one-to-one sessions. It begins with five weekly 55-min video-based Huddle Care Psychotherapy Classes that cover the basics of cognitive-behavioral therapy, including goal-setting, mindfulness, cognitive flexibility, and emotional avoidance. Following completion of classes, participants can join small group therapy sessions to practice their newly learned skills and share triumphs. The program also gives select access to sixteen weeks of one-to-one psychotherapy with a Huddle Care psychotherapist. Psychotherapy classes, groups, and one-to-one are provided adjunctively to any TMS, esketamine, ECT, or medication management services.
She joined Mindful Health Solutions in the Summer of 2021.
Maggie enjoys all forms of espresso, mid-afternoon naps, traveling abroad, spending time with friends and family and running daily to the same Spotify playlist.
