A Word From Madison

Hi, I’m Madison. I’m so glad you are here! I work with all ages from children as young as 5 years old to adults, but I especially have a heart for working with teenagers. When working with minors, I like to also work with their parents as much as possible. Working with the family system is where lasting healing and change occur.

When working with children and parents, I incorporate Theraplay. Theraplay is an attachment style approach and helps the parent regulate the child’s behavior and communicate love, joy, and safety. This is an excellent tool for tapping into the tender places of a child’s heart and allowing them to open up with the parent.

I believe effective therapy can bring deeper transformation and not just surface-level change. Deep transformation can be painful and uncomfortable. However my role as your therapist is to sit with you in that discomfort, challenge you, laugh with you, and encourage you along the way. I use Brainspotting therapy with clients as one of many tools that goes beyond just talk therapy. I desire my clients to not just “fix” their present life challenges, but rather dig them up from the roots, then prepare the soil, and grow into their true selves so they can thrive again.

My therapeutic approach:
-Attachment theory
-Internal Family Systems (IFS) or “parts work”
-Trauma-based treatments

My training includes:

-Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
-Brainspotting I
-Brainspotting-Digging the Roots-Developmental Trauma Model

Outside of the office, you can usually find me hiking, curled up with a cozy blanket and a good book, thrifting, spending time with friends, or watching some variation of Baking Championship reruns on TV.
