Health & Counseling Center - Appleton House

Maggie Scofield knows that transitioning to both college and adulthood can be a monumental task. As a counselor, she works with students individually and in small groups to help successfully navigate this transition. She provides a safe, neutral, non-judgmental space for students to come work through difficult life events or daily struggles.

Maggie enjoys watching people grow in ways they previously did not know were possible. She is passionate about fostering students’ resiliency and newfound ability to make independent decisions as they move into adulthood.

Maggie is a licensed mental health counselor with over a decade of experience in the mental health field. Prior to coming to Mount Ida, she was an outpatient clinician at a community clinic where she provided treatment for an underserved population. She completed her clinical training at the Berklee College of Music and has also worked for the Wentworth Institute of Technology counseling center. In addition to her work at Mount Ida, Maggie manages her own private practice in Arlington MA.

The key to student success is a solid foundation of mental and physical self-care. I believe that each student has the capacity to thrive and feels privileged to be part of their journey.
