It the spirit is well, the heart can hope. If the heart can hope, the mind can heal.
About Third Level Therapy and Wellness Center
My name is Magalis Sandoval, but you may call me Maggie. I have been working in the field of mental health and addiction as a licensed clinical social worker since 2011, but have been working in the human services field since 2006 with at-risk youth and survivors of domestic violence. In 2007 I started my journey working in a residential substance abuse program and since then I have been inspired while working with patients who have successfully made positive changes in their lives.
My goal as a therapist is to help increase self-awareness and insight into the relationship between the individual's thinking and behaviors, while maintaining a safe space to discuss spirituality. I incorporate mindfulness based techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy in my practice and have witnessed positive outcomes when dealing with anxiety, depression, addiction and symptoms of PTSD. I am also certified as an anger management specialist, and genuinely enjoy helping people develop techniques that allow them the opportunity to manage their anger in healthy and productive ways.
BEHIND THE NAME
I named my practice Third Level Therapy and Wellness because I believe that a person's journey to healing and growth must include spirituality. When we come together, we are working with your spirit, your heart and your mind. Regardless of beliefs and religious affiliation, change requires hope, and hope comes from the spirit. I have met many people who have lost their way when it comes to their spirituality and yet during therapy, their hope surfaces and the shift occurs. This is what I refer to as reaching that third level of self-discovery and awareness.
If the spirit is well, the heart can hope. If the heart can hope, the mind can heal.
Because of this, I incorporate different spiritual practices in therapy depending on the individual's preference, in addition to offering these services separate from therapy. When you arrive to the office, you will see crystals much abound, tools for energy healing, tarot and oracle cards, and a room set aside for Reiki. My goal when preparing the space is to create a welcoming environment that promotes relaxation, safety, and genuine care.
I look forward to working with you and providing you the support you are seeking at this time. I believe in the power of motivation and hope, and am confident that together we can take small steps towards a happier and healthier future.
