Maxine Pfeifer, MA
Mental Health Practitioner
I am committed to helping people grow, gain awareness, live healthy lives, and take action to achieve their goals. My integrative approach combines Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and cognitive-behavior therapy with a person-centered perspective. I also have the ability to incorporate yoga, mindfulness, spirituality, and wellness into therapy.
My previous professional experiences include teaching DBT groups, working with adolescents with emotional and behavioral disorders as a mental health practitioner, helping families as an in-home counselor, and supporting adolescents in day treatment and residential treatment.
I am currently working as a Master’s Level Clinical Trainee, under the supervision of Jami Hoxmeier, Ph.D., LP. I work with clients individually and co-facilitate Riverstone’s adult, adolescent, and graduate DBT groups. I am a member of our state certified DBT team.
M.A. in Counseling and Psychological Services January 2018 from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota with a 750 hour Practicum at Riverstone Psychological Services, Rochester, MN
B.A. in Sociology with an emphasis on Professional Writing and Child and Youth Care from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse in 2009.
