Maeve O'Leary Sloan, MA
Therapist | Pre-Doctoral Intern
Maeve O’Leary Sloan is currently pursuing a PsyD in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University Seattle and is completing her doctoral internship at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. In her therapeutic work, Maeve strives to center empowerment and resiliency, while being sure to provide space to acknowledge and explore the many troubling and destabilizing realities of trauma. In each session, Maeve hopes to cultivate a sense of safety, stabilization, and compassion – while integrating elements of joy and humor when appropriate. Maeve received her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Seattle in 2021, and her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Whitman College in 2016. Before beginning graduate school, Maeve worked for three years as a floor staff member on inpatient and partial hospitalization units, gaining valuable and humbling insight into how to help those who struggle with complex trauma, substance use disorders, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, psychosis, suicidality, aggressive behavior, and neurodevelopmental disabilities. Throughout graduate school, Maeve has received specialized skills training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing in community health centers, primary care clinics, and long-term residential units. She finds it particularly meaningful to work with children and adolescents who have endured various forms of trauma and maltreatment, with a special passion for helping young victims of sexual abuse/incest and children in the foster care system. Maeve is passionate about increasing equitable access to behavioral health services and has relatedly dedicated her dissertation to exploring the factors that limit access to buprenorphine - a medication for Opioid Use Disorder - for youth ages 16-25. Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and raised in Seattle, Washington, Maeve is excited to explore the Denver area and is grateful to the mountains for offering her a place to rest and relax.
