Holly Maxon

(MS, LPC)

About Me

My name is Holly Maxon, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma. I was born and raised in Australia and have lived much of my adult life in the Unites States of America. I initially got into the field of mental health due to my own struggles with performance anxiety while attempting to make a living as a professional tennis player. After moving to the US for college tennis and obtaining my education in Counseling Psychology I realized many areas of our lives can be stressful and therefore wanted to help a more general population other than specializing in sports counseling/psychology. I have completed my license in Australia to work as a General Psychologist (currently non practising) and am licensed in the state of Oklahoma as an LPC. I have worked both inpatient and outpatient settings with both general situational life stressors for example depression, anxiety, grief and loss and have also worked with chronic mental illness in the inpatient mental health setting with individuals needing assistance for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and safety concerns surrounding suicidal, homicidal and hallucinating. I have a loving family, with a wife and two kids and am aware of the struggles I have faced in a same sex relationship. I am easy going, happy go lucky person who truly does want what is best for those seeking assistance. I have worked with children starting from the age of 4 all the way through to geriatrics facing the end of life. My preference would be working with adults. I am an eclectic therapist meaning I am open to modifying my therapy interventions based on the clients presenting issues however my preference is Solution Focused Therapy with a Strengths Based Model, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies.

Despite having experience in the area of crisis intervention, danger to self, danger to others, actively hallucinating, this service is not crisis driven and if these are areas of concern for yourself in office therapy is highly recommended for additional support required to ensure safety.

I highly recommend Holly! She is easy to talk to and genuinely cares for you. She makes the whole process less daunting than I thought it’d be. She lets conversation flow naturally, but is ready with topics when it reaches a standstill. I love her approach to therapy—a “not one method fixes all” model. She is a fountain of resources and knowledge. She provides multiple options/techniques and encourages you to do what works best for you. Her humor and what I call her Australianisms keep me smiling the whole session. My mental health has improved greatly with the simple techniques I’ve implemented in my daily routine per her suggestion. She is the best!

Holly has made my first experience with a counselor a very positive one. I was very nervous at first but she quickly helped me feel comfortable. She listens well, and responds with respect and kindness.
