My Approach to Helping

Hi, I'm Madeleine. I help individuals and couples find clarity and purpose to confidently move into the future with more stable emotions and feel sure of themselves and their choices. I work from a place of compassion, collaboration, and curiosity. I believe life is a creative practice.

Problems, inner and outer conflicts, and relationship issues can be an invitation to explore your experiences more deeply. As we explore your relationships, worries, fears, hopes, and dreams, we will find clues that lead to the source of unresolved problems and a path to wellness.

Therapy is unique to each person, couple, and family. I consider each individual’s needs to create a therapeutic experience in sessions. The best way to see if we are a good fit and if I can help is to book an initial session. Before booking an initial session, email or call me to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation where we will discuss your needs. I love meeting people and await the opportunity to connect with you.

More Info About My Practice

In our sessions together, we may delve into the present, and we may also explore your past. As we become more curious about your past and present experiences, unexpected connections may unfold. It is like a scavenger hunt. In our work together, we will find clues that lead to the source of unresolved problems. When we find the source, we can heal.

What Makes up a Problem?

I have found that what is showing up as "the problem" is actually an invitation to explore your past, present, and future and can be the beginning of finding a path toward fulfillment.
