Maegin Smith, CSW

Maegin is a Licensed Substance Abuse Counselor, with a Masters in Social Work. She believes that an authentic relationship-based approach is essential in order to help someone begin to recover from a mental health or substance abuse disorder. She’s worked in the addiction and mental health fields since 2017, and has experience with diverse populations including people with severe and persistent mental illness with co-occurring disorders, substance abuse in children and adolescents with co-occurring disorders, and as an advocate for the rights of people with disabilities. 

Maegin has been in recovery for 11 years, but spent the 10 years before that in and out of treatment centers. She believes that in order to recover, a person must develop a meaningful life full of trusting relationships, inspiring pursuits, and a continuous, curious look inwards. Maegin uses experiential therapy techniques to employ the theories of DBT, CBT, and Mindfulness in her practice. Maegin finds her solace in alpine climbing, backcountry skiing, and communing with nature. She developed a wilderness therapy program in Oregon, and hopes to continue on this path to one day become an equine therapist.
