Under Clinical Supervision

Margaret Horwitz , Licensed Master Social Worker, 109101 is practicing under the supervision of Grace Higa (New York, LCSW, 090388) at Balanced Mind.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I am passionate about supporting people on their journeys of self-exploration, empowerment, and healing. While this journey looks different for everyone, therapy provides us with a unique opportunity to learn more about ourselves: our identities, the people and places that have shaped us, and life experiences. I believe in the transformative power of the therapeutic relationship and have personally experienced how it can help us cultivate better relationships with ourselves and others. I have deep respect for the courage it takes to show up for ourselves in this way and believe we can do so with curiosity and compassion. Together, we can explore practices that have helped you survive this far and experiment with new strategies. Or you may be looking to understand challenging feelings coming up while navigating life's complexities. Maybe you want to shift into a more embodied way of moving through the world. Whatever brought you here- I’ll support you every step of the way. We’ll work together to explore your unique needs, while honoring your strengths and innate wisdom. I don’t see myself as an “expert,” rather a skilled and caring partner. I strive to be anti-oppressive in my approach, paying special attention to the ways in which people are impacted by systems and -isms as well as my own positionality as a therapist.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My practice is neurodiversity-affirming and I have training in self-psychology, IFS, and AEDP, a trauma-focused somatic-based modality. Some of the theoretical perspectives that inform my work include attachment theory, relational approaches, liberation psychology, and narrative therapy. I am also deeply influenced by my abolitionist values.
