About Me

My name is Lilly Maxwell, I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker-LICSW # 2490C licensed in the state of Alabama. I graduated from Oakwood University where I studied nursing, then I attended Alabama A& M University and obtained a Masters of Social Work degree -specialized in Mental Health and Substance Use disorders
I have over 10 years experience providing psychotherapy services from a empowerment /strength perspective framework. My passion is helping individuals, couples, young adults and families in distress reach their highest level of functioning and potential in life; to find their unique voices. As well as encourage the building of positive relationships.
I have extensive experience working in psychiatry and community mental health with individuals and families with mood disorders, addictions, trauma and suicidality. In my current practice I specialize in mental disorders; teaching coping strategies; life coaching; life skills training; grief and loss; geriatrics; and caregiver stress/burnout.
I utilize a client-centered and family-centered approach to meet the various needs of my clientele. I provide a holistic approach to clients' unmet needs-(an alternative form of psychotherapy) focusing on the whole person (mind, body, and spirit) and health. The goal is growth of the whole person.

Lilly is such an amazing therapist. She really is one of the great ones that I was able to open up to and have exciting conversations with. She's helped me SO much the past months on my mental health and her guidance was always great. She is very caring and I will miss the relationship we had together.

Lily is a wonderful listener she really tries to figure out the root cause of the issues that’s what he’s having. She’s easy to talk to which is a good thing if you want people to open up and she’s really good at doing that. She’s very kind, compassionate, caring, and empathetic, and I’m glad I could have a counselor like her. ☺️
