Maggie Batko, LCSW

Chicago – N. Michigan Ave

Maggie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works together with clients to find the most effective agents for change. She believes clients are the experts of their own lives, even when they feel lost. She also believes positive and sustained change is rooted in self love and acceptance, and by providing a safe and supportive environment, clients can explore their authentic selves without fear of judgment.

Maggie is interested in assisting those who are struggling with obsessive thoughts, poor impulse control, compulsive behavior, unstable self-image, unstable relationships, abandonment, addiction, anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal or paranoid thoughts. She enjoys working with adults and adolescents in individual, couple and family sessions using a culturally sensitive integrative approach. She earned her Master’s in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago.
