A Passion for Healing
October 3rd, 2019
Maggie Baldwin has long had a passion for helping people who struggle with mental health and substance use disorders.
It’s why she majored in psychology as an undergrad. It’s why she got a master of science degree in mental health counseling. It’s why she became a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. And it’s why she came to David Lawrence Center—in 2014 as a clinician in our Crossroads Addiction and Recovery program.
And, most recently, it’s why she became a Master’s Level Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP), which essentially means she now has even more expertise in working with substance use disorders.
Baldwin, now Clinical Director of the Crossroads program, studied for months to prep for the MCAP certification exam, which she passed recently.
“I found studying for the MCAP exam to be very worthwhile, and deepened my knowledge of addiction treatment,” she said. “Treating addiction really is a specialty, and having the MCAP trickles down to staff, because I can share what I have learned. But most importantly, I can share my passion for this population of clients that I hold near and dear to my heart.”
Baldwin came to DLC in 2014 with 10 years of clinical experience in both community mental health and private practice. Her specialties include the utilization of holistic interventions, cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing to assist individuals in healing from addiction.
She is an active member of the Gulf Coast Mental Health Counselors Inc. and the American Mental Health Counselors Association.
