Hi, my name is Maggie.
I’m a late-20’s adventurer and entrepreneur living in Chicago. I am passionate about all types of freedom, but also enjoy athletics, buying plants, and wandering. My go-with-the-flow personality and bigger-than-life dreams consistently lead me into trying new things, meeting new people, and asking for directions from strangers. When not running on trails, singing in the shower, or experimenting in the kitchen, I can be found soaking up local café vibes, laughing at my own How I Met Your Mother jokes, listening to early 2000’s punk-pop on repeat, and writing run-on sentences that capture my every thought.
I am also a survivor of trauma. I also spend a lot of time binge-watching silly television shows and eating chocolate. I have dug through my past, forgiven my abusers, and consider myself “present” in my current life. I am still triggered regularly, find myself randomly exhausted, and have a hard time being 100% myself around anyone – even those I love.
While I am open about my past physical and emotional experiences, I much prefer to discuss them in an open dialogue. So please, let’s start one.
** I am not a licensed therapist. Or any kind of therapist for that matter. I have never been a licensed therapist and I don’t intend on becoming one. I am not an expert in the field of trauma. All of my content is made up of opinions that are my own, based off of personal research and experience. If you are in need of professional help, I will gladly provide various resources which you may use, or I will advise you to look elsewhere. **
